Fertility Test & Fertility Assessment Clinic

Many people are faced with difficult choices over when to start a family; the pursuit of career, the urge to travel, the need to finish one adventure before starting the next.

The most common question we are asked by people is ‘can I safely delay starting a family?’ This is where our fertility assessment can help.

The CRGH Fertility Test & Fertility Assessment Clinic is designed to help you answer that question.

We offer fertility tests for women and for men, as well as for couples. As a Fertility clinic in London we aim to support all aspects of your fertility, often starting before you have decided to start a family – our fertility tests for women and male fertility tests are a great first step.

CRGH believe it is never too early to start preparing for a family. Our dedicated team can offer men and women, individuals or couples, a chance to assess your ability to conceive and allowing you to make plans for the future. Our assessments include a holistic examination of the physical, mental, emotional and social factors that could impact your fertility.

You will be in expert hands at CRGH.

Our consultant Dr Vidya Seshadri is well known and respected in her field, and has published research on Prepregnancy care. Dr Seshadri is responsible for overseeing fertility check ups in London and works closely with colleagues at our Canterbury clinic to offer fertility tests for women and for men.

Fertility Lifestyle Changes

You can potentially boost your chances of conceiving (now and in the future) by making sure your body is healthy enough to become pregnant and support a developing baby. Both men and women can make lifestyle changes that may make them more likely to conceive. All women who are trying to conceive should have 400 mcg of folic acid daily to prevent the baby from having neural tube defects. In addition, they should also be immunised for Rubella infection.

Eat healthily

A balanced diet will help ensure your body is healthy enough to become pregnant and can also help to keep sperm production at optimum levels.

Exercise regularly

Regular exercise will keep you fit and help you to maintain a healthy weight. It can also help to reduce your stress levels, in what can be an emotionally draining situation.

Drink sensibly

Alcohol may affect fertility and sperm quality, so aim to limit your drinking to the government guidelines.

Medication and drugs

Some prescription drugs can reduce your chances of conceiving, so if you are taking regular medication ask your GP about suitable alternatives. All illegal drugs should be completely avoided.

Stop smoking

Smoking has been linked to infertility and early menopause in women, and has been shown to reduce sperm quality. It is also a factor in premature or low birth-weight babies.

Keep cool

For maximum sperm production, the testes should be a couple of degrees cooler than the rest of your body. It may help to avoid tight-fitting clothing, saunas and hot showers.
