IVF options for single women
We understand that there are many different reasons why, as a single woman, you might be considering fertility treatments.
We have a variety of options available from egg freezing to preserve your future fertility or IVF using donor sperm if you feel the time is right to have a baby.
Our highly-experienced consultants and friendly support staff are on hand to support you whatever your fertility needs and we'll be with you every step of the way.
IVF treatment using a sperm donor
If you feel the time is right for you to have a child, we can help. We offer a number of IVF treatments using a sperm donor and have our own donor sperm bank with a selection of donors available.
How does using a sperm donor to get pregnant work?
Before starting treatment, one of our fertility nurses will guide you through the whole process and help to match you with a suitable donor. We will continue to support you throughout the treatment process and counselling is available. If you do not wish to use a donor from our sperm bank we can refer you to other banks or provide treatment with a known donor.
In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF)
At CREATE we take a more natural approach to IVF treatment and offer only Natural and Mild IVF protocols, which are designed to work within your natural cycle and use only a minimal amount of drugs.
Intra-Uterine Insemination (IUI)
IUI is the process whereby donor sperm is inserted directly into the uterus at the most fertile point of a woman's natural cycle. It is suitable for women with a good egg reserve who wish to have less invasive and costly treatment.
Some women are not ready to have a baby, but wish to preserve their fertility for the future, One solution to this is egg freezing, which enables women to store their eggs at our clinic until the time is right to have a child. At which point we can perform an IVF with ICSI cycle. Many women find this an empowering and reassuring step to take.
'I needed to have a bond with all those involved in my treatment and I experienced that with CREATE.'
I understood in advance each stage of my treatment and I was aware of all my options. There are also plus sides to having fertility treatment alone; I like that I never have anyone telling me how I should be raising my child. I don't know one woman who has done this journey alone and regrets it, yet I do know single women who regret that they have never had a child. Also, the love I get from my child is indescribable and wonderful.
