A peak into the world class research laboratories at Westmead Fertility Centre

The meiotic spindle is a very important part of the egg (oocyte). It is responsible for dividing the chromosomes from the mother in half, and removing them from the oocyte – such that when the sperm arrives it brings the other half of the chromosomes from the father, which the embryo needs to start development.

couples struggling with fertility

With 1 in 6 couples struggling with fertility, you are not alone

Our patients often tell us that hearing and reading other people’s stories about infertility helped them realise that they’re not alone in having trouble conceiving and gave them greater strength to cope with their own journey.

While our team can explain fertility treatment to you, to truly understand how it feels, its better to hear it from someone who’s been through it. So, here is a real story that one of our patients, Alexia*, has chosen to share with the hope of helping others.

re-implantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) and Pre-implantation Genetic Screening

Pre-implantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) and Pre-implantation Genetic Screening (PGS) available at Westmead Fertility Centre

In a standard IVF or ICSI cycle, if more than one embryo is produced a choice must be made by our embryologists about which embryo to transfer to give you the best chance of achieving a pregnancy.  That choice is made on the appearance and the development of the embryos in the laboratory.

Advanced scientific techniques called Pre-implantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) and Pre-implantation Genetic Screening (PGS) give another factor to decide which embryo to transfer – the genetic health of your embryo.

We have been offering access to Pre-implantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) and Pre-implantation Genetic Screening (PGS) at Westmead Fertility Centre with great success.  If you would like to know more about these advanced techniques and if this is appropriate for your particular circumstance, make an appointment to talk to one of our Specialists.

New research publication for Westmead Fertility Centre

Did you know that research studies using animal gametes led to the first documented successful human IVF?

As a wholly owned subsidiary of the University of Sydney, at Westmead Fertility Centre we are different to other Sydney IVF providers. Our world leading scientists are experts in the field and make contributions to both human and animal research to continually improve IVF procedures.

We would like to congratulate our Embryologists and University colleagues for the recent publication in the Journal of Reproduction and Development looking at the optimal method to cryopreserve embryos.
