The Aberdeen Fertility Centre has been at the forefront of fertility treatments for more than 33 years. Once a diagnosis has been made by our caring team of expert clinicians and embryology staff, we can offer a range of treatments across our Centre to suit your individual needs.
In line with Government advice the Fertility Centre will continue to provide medical care

UPDATE - COVID-19 Vaccination
The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) published updated advice on 30 December 2020 to advise that women who are trying to become pregnant do not need to avoid pregnancy after vaccination.
Getting vaccinated before pregnancy will help prevent COVID-19 infection and its serious consequences. In some cases, women will need to make a decision about whether to delay pregnancy until after the vaccine becomes available to them. There is no evidence to suggest these type of vaccines cause issues with fertility.
Community Hubs - Blood Tests
If you are a Grampian patient and require a blood test, an appointment can be made at one of our community hubs rather than you having to attend the hospital or your GP. In order to book your appointment please ring the Central Booking Team on: Tel: 01224 555177. Further information can be found here.
If you have a query regarding a clinic appointment please contact our reception team at firstname.lastname@example.org. If your query relates to IVF or donor treatment please contact our administration team at email@example.com.
If you are considering self funded treatment we can offer you an initial Consultation to discuss your personal situation. Should you have previously had treatment in the Centre and wish to have a self funded cycle please contact the email above.

As we can no longer undertake our fortnightly patient information evenings, we have updated our presentation which we would ask all patients to watch prior to first consultation with medical staff. There is a lot of information about fertility treatments available in various websites, on TV, magazines and newspapers however, within the Aberdeen Fertility Centre our experienced and caring staff will explore all options that may be suitable for you and together we will work out your individual journey.
Information will be provided by our medical, nursing and laboratory colleagues to ensure you are confident in giving your consent prior to any procedure or process being undertaken.
Fertility is something that most take for granted, for some however fertility issues can mean that having a child is difficult or impossible without help from a donor. Donors are people from all walks of life - there is no such thing as a standard donor. What they have in common is a desire to give the gift of life and help people to achieve the family they otherwise could not have.
A cycle of IVF can take 8-10 weeks from a menstrual bleed to the completion of the embryo transfer and it is essential that couples fully understand each step involved.
Sperm, egg or embryo freezing may be required as part of a fertility treatment cycle or for fertility preservation purposes.
