Patient Criteria

At IVF4family, we believe not everyone needs IVF to conceive a baby, which is why patients must see an affiliated gynaecologist before becoming a patient at IVF4family. We also have criteria which the patient must adhere to. These include:

1. the female must be under the age of 42 and have a BMI of under 35 kg/m2.

2. the couple should not require a donor or preimplantation genetic testing.

Required Tests

To ensure the patient is eligible to be a patient at IVF4family, the patient will require the following investigations;

• a pelvic ultrasound performed on day 2-4 of the menstrual cycle

• a cervical screening test

• antenatal screening tests on the female which include serology for rubella, varicella, hepatitis B and C, HIV and syphilis, thyroid function tests, blood group and antibody screen, B12 and folate, ferritin levels

• a semen analysis from the male partner.

These can be arranged by you and copies provided to the patients.

Dr Stephen Cattanach - Mater Medical Centre

Dr Ken Law - Greenslopes Private Hospital
