Fertility Treatments 

Here at Fertility Associates we offer a range of options for fertility treatment. From lower technology treatment such as Ovulation Induction (OI) through to high technology treatments like In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF) and Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI).

We also offer a range of Donor Services including donor eggs, sperm and embryos, and if necessary, we can help when a surrogate is needed. Egg and sperm freezing services are also available.

Before or during treatment it is important to look after yourself and your partner. We support all of our treatment options with advice and counselling services. These can be accessed before treatment has commenced or while you are undertaking treatment.


IVF Related Treatments:

In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF) is useful for people with infertility issues such as poor quality sperm, endometriosis, antibodies to sperm or ‘unexplained’ infertility. There are several other treatments that are often used in conjunction with IVF when needed  more.


Non-IVF Treatments:

Often, all couples need is a little help. Rather than undertaking a complex treatment like IVF, we will try lower technology treatments such as Ovulation Induction (OI), Intrauterine Insemination and Donor Insemination more.


Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis:

Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) is when the genetic status of each embryo is determined before it is transferred into the uterus more.


Donor Services:

Sometimes there are situations where donor sperm, eggs or embryo are a logical consideration when looking at Fertility Treatment more.


Freezing and Storage:

As life and relationships can be unpredictable, freezing of your eggs, sperm or testicular tissue has become an acceptable way for men and women who may wish to keep their options open in terms of reproduction more.


Surgery and Micro-Surgery:

In some cases, before starting fertility treatment, either the male or female may need to undergo a particular surgical procedure such as TESA, PESA, Vasectomy reversal or Fallopian tube surgery more.


Surrogacy:

Surrogacy is the term used where a woman bears a child for another woman. The usual indications for this are that the woman cannot bear the child because the uterus is absent or malformed more.


Counselling and Support:

Creating a family is not only a medical matter. Infertility brings with it much emotional stress and usually invades every aspect of a person's life more.


Legal Aspects of Treatment:

The practice of fertility treatment where sperm, eggs or embryos spend time outside the human body is governed by the Human Assisted Reproductive Technology (HART) Act 2004 more.


Maori:

To help make it a little easier to access our services, we have provided an overview of our services and treatments in Maori more.


International Patients:

Patients from outside of New Zealand are able to access treatment through Fertility Associates. We frequently see patients from both New Calendonia, Tahiti and Fiji more
