Dr Gary Swift operates one of the leading IVF & Fertility clinics on the Gold Coast.
Global estimates of infertility range between 8 and 12% of couples with women of childbearing age, affecting between 50 and 80 million people worldwide.
There are many assisted reproductive technologies (ARTs), including in vitro fertilisation (IVF) and embryo transfer (ET), as well as surgical treatments which may correct fertility problems or improve the chances of success.
Infertility is often perceived as a predominantly female disorder, even though male-factor infertility is equally prevalent. At least half of the couples we meet who have fertility issues fail to reproduce because of problems with the man’s fertility. The majority of problems can be overcome with current technology.
Both women and men experience considerable distress when experiencing reproductive health problems.
So what is IVF and how can it help with fertility issues?
What does IVF stand for? It stands for In Vitro Fertilisation and is a type of assisted reproductive technology that helps women become pregnant. There are certain factors that may impact a woman’s ability to have children and give reason to look at the IVF process and IVF treatment.
Some of these would be :
- Damaged Fallopian Tubes
- Ovulation Issues
- Low sperm count and motility
Dr Gary Swift is also a leading surgeon who specialises in laparoscopic surgery for endometriosis. If you would like to see the full list of fertility treatments available through our clinic you can head across to our fertility treatments page.
One of the first questions people understandably have when considering visiting our Gold Coast IVF clinic is: ‘how much does IVF cost’?
Dr Gary Swift’s fertility clinic is associated with the Queensland Fertility Group and they have a website that outlines the fees involved and the options available. You are also welcome to contact our clinic for more information. Another common question is in regards to IVF success rate and in particular IVF success rate for women over 40.
The Queensland Fertility Group has partner clinics in New South Wales and in Victoria. Collectively they are responsible for more births through IVF treatment than any other clinic group in Australia. Whilst this is positive generic information we want to be honest and real about the outcomes because we are dealing with you and your opportunity to have a family.
