Pre-IVF Options

A fertility assessment is key to understanding where to start in your treatment journey. Before the need to undergo IVF there are usually other options that may be suitable for you.

  • Intercourse Timing: At Demeter we will help you to learn the best time to have sex if you’re trying to conceive. Figure out when you’re ovulating and exactly when to have intercourse.
  • Ovulation Induction: The use of hormonal therapy to stimulate egg development and release (called ovulation). These drugs are designed to induce ovulation mainly in women who did not ovulate on their own, typically women with irregular menstrual cycles, with the goal of producing an egg.
  • Tubal Flushing: Poppy seed oil IVF utilises an additional technique of tubal flushing to clear out the fallopian tubes prior to the IVF cycle. Studies have shown that flushing (with a medical grade poppy seed oil) can increase pregnancy rates by up to 37%.
  • Diet and supplement advice
  • Lifestyle changes
