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.
We have recently introduced electronic consent forms which patients can complete in the comfort of their own home. Patients about to undergo treatment will receive a text message with information on how to access the electronic consents site. The information on the site is provided by video and reading material which can be read at your leisure, as long as the consents are completed at least seven days before your appointment. We look forward to your feedback on this exciting new development.
Fertility Network Scotland and representatives from NHS clinics in Scotland came together to talk about the new Fertility Consents platform. Please click here to view the webinar.

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.
