Uterine Fibroids FAQs

Following the series of articles about uterine fibroids by Consultant Gynaecologist, Mr Adrian Lower, many women have written to us with questions. These have now been answered by Mr Lower in his article on the most frequently asked questions on fibroids.

Fertility Treatment – planning for success

It is a sad fact that most of us will spend our early years responsibly trying to avoid unwanted pregnancies and feel that as soon as we are ready to start a family all we have to do is to stop using contraception. Unfortunately, the reality is slightly more complicated than this.  A couple with normal fertility only have a 20 to 30% chance of conceiving in any one cycle in which they have unprotected sex.  After a year of trying, around 80% of couples will have achieved a successful pregnancy and after two years of trying around 90% of women will be pregnant.
