Additional treatment (add-ons)
Additional fertility treatment, often known as ‘add-ons’, are optional extras that you can choose to have on top of your fertility treatment. At the Wolfson Fertility Clinic, we offer additional treatments, free of charge.
Our team provide evidence-based treatments and we actively participate in research to further knowledge and develop new treatment options. We are also open-minded about emerging techniques, which have not yet been proven to improve pregnancy rates. Some add-on treatments are emerging, or new treatments that have only just started to be used. Other add-on treatments have been around for several years, but there is limited evidence that they improve pregnancy or birth rates.
We are happy to discuss all add-on treatments with you, including the risks, success rates and how much research has been conducted into them. We do not charge for low cost add-on treatments, because we only believe in charging for treatments which are proven to work. We do charge for genetic testing as there are high costs associated with these tests.
The HEFA website lists all add-on treatments and uses a traffic light system to explain which add-on treatments have no evidence to support them, and which need further research.
Some patients may wish to have more than one cycle. This could be because you have a low ovarian reserve later date. As we have no guarantee of how you will respond to a cycle, we only charge for one treatment cycle at a time and aim to keep the overall cost of a cycle as low as possible. We do not offer bulk-booking options.
