Fertility Treatments

Ovulation Induction

The release of an egg from the ovary is necessary for spontaneous pregnancy to occur. If this does not happen naturally, various medications can be used to stimulate the ovaries. This is called ovulation induction. There are a couple of tablets available, Letrozole and Clomiphene. They are only taken for five days in each cycle and are effective ovulation induction agents. These tablets can be used if the cycles are irregular or infrequent, or if the progesterone levels are low.



Assisted Fertility Treatments

Counselling Service

At Fertility Fusion we are proud to offer a specialised, professional counselling service for people undergoing fertility treatment.


Fertility treatment can be both physically and emotionally stressful. It’s not unusual to feel anxious, stressed and even depressed, which can affect not only your own wellbeing but also your relationships.


Not everyone will be able to understand what you are going through and some people don’t want to share with others that they are experiencing problems with fertility and are undergoing treatment. This is where counselling can be really helpful.

All sessions with our counselling service are confidential.


In line with the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act 1990 (amended HFEA, 2008), Counselling is offered in combination with the treatment provided by Fertility Fusion. There are many benefits to the counselling that will be offered to patients during their fertility treatment. It will always include the opportunity to talk through the implications of the treatment that have been suggested and it will also include elements of support and therapy.
