Q:What is the length of the treatment?

A: The initial stage of the treatment takes approximately 3 weeks before you will need to travel to an associate clinic in another country.

A: All the necessary drugs are sent directly to your home. We supply standard quantities based on long experience. Some people may need additional drugs which are charged for separately.

It is important for all prospective patients to note that, in accordance with international practice in fertility treatment, costs quoted cover treatment up to and including embryo transfer. Any subsequent medical costs and requirements are not included in our gender selection treatment costs.


Q: Where does the treatment take place?

A: The initial appointment and preparatory treatments take place in London, however, egg collection, fertilisation, biopsy and embryo transfer take place in another country. If you then return to the UK you will be monitored by The Rainsbury Clinic for the first 3 months of your subsequent pregnancy, if required.


Q: How long do I need to spend abroad?

A: The female partner will spend 10-12 days abroad. The male partner is required for two days for treatment purposes, any additional time is optional.


Q: Does the cost of the treatment include travel and accommodation whilst abroad?

A: No, but we can advise you about travel plans and our specialists can assist with arrangements. We have our own travel agent who can make excellent arrangements at competitive prices.


Q: Can I have my scans and blood tests done anywhere but The Rainsbury Clinic?

A: No. This is likely to substantially increase the cost of treatment and may fail to deliver the vital information we need.
