First Steps

If you haven’t been successful in conceiving naturally, or you would simply like to find out about your fertility health before you start trying to conceive, there are a number of simple, non-invasive steps we can take with you to get a more rounded understanding of your unique circumstances.

The first step is to speak to your GP. Not only will your GP be able to provide advice, more importantly they can provide a referral for you to Fertility SA. Click here to download a referral form to take with you to your GP appointment.

If you aren’t quite ready to get a referral or make an appointment with your GP, we have a free consultation service available where you can discuss your situation with one of our highly trained and experienced fertility nurses who will be able to guide you towards a plan that works for you.

For your free nurse consultation, or to make an appointment with one of our specialist doctors, call (08) 8100 2900.

You’re in good hands.

Why Choose Fertility SA?

At Fertility SA, we are a highly specialised unit of dedicated professionals that care for you from the day you seek help, to the day you no longer need us. We are acutely aware of the anxiety associated with infertility. We also understand the concerns and fears associated with the treatments to overcome infertility.

We make decisions based on your individual circumstances.

We won’t truly know until we have all the science at hand. We also don’t want to create a sense of false hope. What we can promise is that our dedicated team of specialists and support staff will do everything in our professional power to find a way forward to fulfilling your dream of having a baby, irrespective of what others have told you in the past.

We are passionate about excellence, we genuinely care about creating the best possible outcomes for our patients. Most importantly, we put you first.

There are a number of reasons why our patients regard Fertility SA as the leading fertility clinic in South Australia:

  • We are the only independent fertility unit in South Australia owned by the medical staff who work there. This means that we are truly passionate about making a genuine difference to fertility outcomes and we reinvest in research and development to ensure that we deliver the excellence we promise.
  • We provide uncompromised, individualised care. This means that when you start down the road to growing your family with Fertility SA, you will have a specialist who personally takes care of you from the day you arrive, to the day you no longer need us, unlike other clinics which work on doctor availability.
  • We have some of the best educated, trained and experienced doctors and surgical specialists working with us. This means that if you need surgery, we don’t need to refer you elsewhere like other clinics do. There are 3 doctors on the team who have completed a further 3 years CREI specialty in fertility, a sought-after national 2-year program which accepts very few applicants per year. We also have a number of other specialists with their own areas of expertise in the field of reproductive medicine who are a fundamental part of the Fertility SA team.

Our Success Rates

We are extremely proud of our results.
We also feel that you deserve an accurate sense of your chances for falling pregnant with a happy, healthy baby. To understand IVF success rates, it’s important to be aware that many clinics promote their success rates differently. However, accredited clinics in Australia and New Zealand report their success rates to a central body called ANZARD (Assisted Reproductive Technology in Australia and New Zealand), so it can be useful to compare your fertility clinic against the overall ANZARD statistics.
An important question to ask your doctor is,
“What is my individual chance, using my own eggs,
of having an embryo transferred?”
Some clinics report on pregnancy rates per cycle but skew the data in favour of cycles that have a higher number of good prognosis outcomes, younger patients, the use of donor eggs, or a higher rate of pre-genetic screening which can make success rates look better. At Fertility SA, we practice transparency in everything we do. We update our records regularly, to include all patient groups across all time periods.

After Medicare and other rebates, final out of pocket costs will depend on your individual circumstances.
