Treatment add ons survey
If you are having or have had fertility treatment you may have been offered add ons which aim to increase the success rate of your treatment. This survey is designed to find out what patients think about these add ons, how they should be offered by clinics and what information patients needs and how much they should expect to pay.
During fertility treatment, you may be offered additions to your treatment which aim to increase the success rate. These additional treatments, often called add ons, include drugs for reproductive immunology, laboratory-based interventions such as embryo glue or incubators with time-lapse imaging, or surgical methods such as endometrial scratching.
Most of these add ons are not fully proven to increase your chance of getting pregnant, but clinics normally charge extra for them.
Fertility Network UK, the UK’s leading patient-focussed fertility charity, and the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority, the UK’s dedicated fertility regulator, are working together to make sure that patients get access to high quality, effective fertility treatment. We also want patients to be able to take part in research to improve fertility treatment, if they want to.
