Newcastle Upon Tyne is the largest city in the Northeast of England, and has been a commercial and industrial hub for the North of England since the 19th century. The city possesses a unique charm and is rife with events and activities for people of all ages. The Newcastle Fertility Centre finds itself in the centre of a vast rail and road network centring upon Newcastle, making it an ideal location to provide treatments and support to couples across the Northeast. The centre provides a number of treatment options ranging from surgeries to assisted reproduction technologies. Tubal tests are available to determine the health of female fallopian tubes, the blockage or damage of which is a common cause of female factor infertility. If necessary tubal surgeries are provided to restore functionality to the fallopian tubes if damage is found. In terms of male surgeries the centre offers a number of different sperm retrieval strategies which are used in the event of a blockage in the male network of reproductive tubes within the testicles. Assisted reproductive technologies are of course on offer and include the likes of artificial insemination and the famous IVF procedure which has been making waves since its development. Artificial insemination is relatively simple and involves placing sperm into the female tract to improve the chances of a successful fertility. As intrauterine insemination is used at the centre, sperm are in face placed directly into the womb, often after drug treatments to enhance egg production, and the net effect is a much improved chance of conception. IVF is a different method which follows an alternative route, choosing to extract male and female sex cells, sperm and eggs respectively, and achieve conception by means of their interaction in a controlled laboratory environment. An adjustment to this method is ICSI, which involves directly injecting one sperm rather many into an egg, which is useful where few sperm cells are available or if the sperm available are of poor quality. The centre can also provide storage for surplus eggs and sperm from treatment, as well as the option of storage for cancer patients about to undergo chemotherapy or radiotherapy. Both of these regimes are known to seriously affect fertility, and through storage cancer patients have the option of having their own children in the future, regardless of how chemo or radiotherapy impacts their fertility.
