Infertility is a common condition that can often dishearten couples in their goals to have children. In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF) is used to overcome a range of fertility issues, including women with ovulation disorders, men experiencing male factor infertility or other unexplained infertility issues. It can also be a potential solution for cancer patients who are looking to preserve their fertility for the future. Whatever your reason, undergoing fertility treatment is a major decision. It’s important to speak to a fertility specialist that you trust.
Dr Joseph Sgroi is a highly qualified obstetrician and gynaecologist with extensive experience in each area. He is also a fertility specialist, providing IVF treatment in Melbourne at Epworth Freemasons clinic and Melbourne IVF Clinic. His number 1 priority is providing patients with personalised fertility management using state of the art fertility treatment within a compassionate, confidential and supportive environment.
If you are experiencing problems with fertility, you may be considering trying IVF to conceive. Before you do make this decision, it is important to know that there are steps you can try prior to trying IVF, such as ovulation induction or IUI (intra uterine insemination). Depending on your particular fertility issue, these alternative treatments may be suitable for you, however it is best to speak to a fertility specialist first to verify what steps you should take.
When a patient first makes an appointment with Dr Joseph in one of the IVF clinics, he reviews previous investigations, organises any extra relevant tests that may need to be taken and outlines a management plan based on the patient’s condition. A pre-treatment appointment is also made to discuss this plan. Usually around 80-90% of women under the age of 35 can conceive within a year of trying. If you haven’t become pregnant after this time it is advisable to contact Dr Joseph. For women over 35, if you are not pregnant within six months of trying, please contact Dr Joseph.
Other possible reasons for infertility concern include a low sperm count in men, irregular or absent menstrual cycles, painful periods, a history of endometriosis or pelvic inflammatory disease, previous miscarriages, or previous chemotherapy or cancer treatment. Diagnosis and tests are conducted in an IVF clinic in Melbourne via blood tests, biopsies, ovarian reserve testing, imaging studies, laparoscopic evaluation and hysterosalpingography viewing.
