  • In vitro fertilisation IVF

    Need to know

    IVF is used to treat a variety of fertility problems. During IVF treatment, sperm is combined with an egg in a laboratory. The fertilised egg (embryo) is then transferred to a woman's womb. IVF can be carried out with a couple's own sperm and eggs, or with donor sperm or donor eggs.

  • Egg donation

    Need to know

    Egg donation is a voluntary service that can offer a solution to women who want to have children but can't. We also run an egg sharing programme where you can share your eggs with women who need them in exchange for your own free IVF treatment. The whole egg donation process takes about a month.

  • Egg freezing

    Need to know

    At the Lister Fertility Clinic, we offer egg freezing to give women the option of freezing their eggs when younger. The main benefit of freezing your eggs is that it 'locks in' the quality of eggs at the age they were frozen so they may be used at a later stage.

  • Egg sharing programme

    Need to know

    Our egg sharing programme can help women who are unable to produce their own eggs and conventional treatment is not an option. Although we have the largest egg donation programme in the UK, many couples rely on other women to donate their eggs and are waiting for their chance to have a child. If you're...

  • Donor sperm

    Need to know

    Donor sperm can be used to help couples and individuals become parents, regardless of your sexual orientation or a male factor fertility problem. We've offered a successful donor sperm programme at the Lister Fertility Clinic for many years. We can guide you through the whole process, from choosing...

  • Fertility preservation and cancer

    Need to know

    Cancer treatments such as chemotherapy, radiation therapy and some surgeries may have a damaging effect on fertility. While these treatments are effective in improving survival rates, they can severely impact ovarian, testicular or uterine function. However cancer treatments don't have to end your...

  • Embryo freezing

    Need to know

    If you're having standard IVF treatment, any excess good quality embryos can be frozen instead of being transferred to the womb. Embryos can also be frozen as a stand-alone process to be used later for fertility preservation purposes. Frozen embryos can be thawed and transferred in a future cycle. Recent...
