What is IVF?
During the In vitro fertilisation (IVF) technique, an egg(s) is removed from the woman’s ovaries and fertilised with sperm in a laboratory. The fertilised egg, called an embryo, is then returned to the woman’s womb to grow and develop.
It can be carried out using your eggs and your partner’s sperm, or eggs and sperm from donors.
What is ICSI?
This is called intra-cytoplasmic sperm injection or ICSI and is usually offered to patients when the sperm is outside of what is considered normal parameters. Each egg is injected individually with a single healthy sperm.
Do you have an IUI plan?
No, our plans are only compatible with IVF or ICSI cycles.
Do your plans include Blastocyst culture?
Blastocyst culture is a technique in the lab where they culture the embryos to develop them to day 5, they are then known as blastocyst embryos. The embryologists will culture your embryos to blastocyst stage if they can as these embryos often have a better chance of success. Often clinics charge you a lot more for this, but it is included in this plan.
I need PGT-A testing, does my Assured Fertility plan cover this?
The cost of PGT-A is not covered fee and the clinic would invoice you directly. You would however require a freeze all, so the additional top up fee would be applied on top of your plan cost.
I need an Embryo freeze all, is this included?
If you require a freeze all, you will have to pay a top up fee of £350 per cycle so £700 on our two cycle plans and £1050 on our three cycle plan.
If I have a freeze all but I achieve a live birth on my first cycle, will you refund £350?
If you do not utilise your second or third cycle (if on a three cycle product), you would be due a refund of the freeze all fee for the cycles you have not utilised.
If my egg collection has to get cancelled, what do I do? Do I forfeit a cycle, or can I pay a cancellation fee to protect my plan?
If your cycle is cancelled prior to egg collection, you would pay the clinic directly for any associated cancellation fees. These are usually calculated by the amount of monitoring scans / blood tests you have undertaken up until that point in time. The clinic will be best placed to advise on these.
Can I pay for my plan by credit card?
Yes, we except all credit card payments excluding American Express/AMEX.
I have frozen embryos in storage already, can I use these under an Assured Fertility Plan?
No, you wouldn’t be able to utilise frozen embryos you have stored already, if suitable these would need to utilised before starting an Assured Fertility plan.
I’ve had screening done before. My tests results were done last year are they still valid?
We always advise you to request any results from your previous clinic before attending a consultation at a new clinic. If your results are in date, the clinic will be happy to accept these. One test that clinics do usually like to repeat themselves, irrelevant of when it was last performed is a baseline scan.
What do you count as a success?
When a patient has achieved a live birth.
What is the success rate for my age group?
We recommend you visiting the HFEA (the fertility governing body in the UK) website to obtain the most up to date statistics for the clinic of your choice.
What happens if I want withdraw from my multi cycle plan?
If you decided to withdraw from the plan, after you had started treatment, you may be due a partial refund which would be calculated by taking your plan fee and deducting the retail cost of treatment you have received up until that point in time and our administration fee.
If I achieve a live birth on my first cycle, can I use my second cycle at a later date?
Once a live birth has been achieved, there is no further treatment available on your plan. Your plan would be complete. Should you wish further treatment, please do contact us as we may be able to offer you a further plan.
Can I have twins?
Clinics in the UK follow NICE guidelines which state that where possible, if good quality embryos are available, they will be transferred singularly. The UK is trying to reduce multiple birth rates so will not advocate multiple births. However, in same cases, the clinician may decide to do a multiple embryo transfer. This is something you will discuss with your consultant / embryologist.
What is the process for your egg donation 100% refund plan? Can we see the donors that are available before committing?
Firstly, we would require for you and your partner (if applicable) to complete and return our medical questionnaire so we can review whether you might be suitable for our refund plan. Once you have submitted your questionnaires and we have assessed that you may be a candidate for the plan, we will send over a copy of our paperwork for you to review and sign. Once you have signed the paperwork, we would organise a scan to be performed to check your uterus and endometrial lining. Based on the results of these and your questionnaire, our consultants will decide whether we can accept you onto the plan. At this point we will require payment in full on the plan. Once we have received payment, you would then start the donor matching process. Unfortunately, you would not be matched to a donor prior to committing to the plan. The process for our UK and Cyprus plans is slightly different so please liaise with our team to see which plan may suit you best.
How long does the donor matching take?
For UK donor treatment with us, donor matching can take anywhere between 3 to 12 months. Your donor coordinator will be able to give you a better idea of exact timings once they have taken you through the matching process.
Does the 100% Egg Donation plan include flights and accommodation to Cyprus?
Flights and accommodation are not included in the plan as not everyone has the same requirements for travel arrangements. The clinic in Cyprus are extremely helpful though and can certainly make recommendations based on your needs.
Why are donors anonymous in Cyprus but they aren’t in the UK?
Due to a law change in 2005 in the UK, donors are no longer anonymous and can be traced once any resultant child turns 18. In Cyprus, donors are 100% anonymous and will never be able to be traced. This is the law in Cyprus.
