Fertility treatment and advice for getting pregnant

When you need help getting pregnant, it can feel overwhelming knowing where to turn.
Our team of fertility experts will provide advice and help get you to the right place.

How long does it take to get pregnant?

Most heterosexual couples conceive within a year of trying, however this depends on a multitude of factors including the couples’ ages, their general health and their reproductive health. For many it can happen quicker or take longer. 

According to the World Health Organisation, around 1 in 6 people experience infertility. But there are many options available for those who need help getting pregnant.

If you’ve been trying to get pregnant for a year or more, it’s a good idea to see a doctor or talk to a fertility specialist. You should do this sooner if you are over 35 and have been trying for 6 months or more, or you have pre-diagnosed fertility issues.

Depending on your situation or diagnosis, our fertility experts can recommend the best next step to conceiving whether that be through a fertility test or exploring different treatments.
