• What could fertility clinics change?
    Have you had fertility treatment in Victoria in the past five years or have you worked in a clinic? We are looking for feedback on what fertility clinics do well at the moment and what they could change to improve their focus on patients' needs. Please consider helping us with this important project.
  • COVID-19 and fertility treatment
    Good news! IVF clinics will gradually resume their procedural work from April 27.
  • Changes to our services
    We are currently operating at reduced capacity, so there may be delays and changes to our services in coming weeks and months.
  • Understanding DNA tests
    DNA tests to establish a relationship or find relatives online are becoming more popular. If you are thinking of doing a test, or have already done one, there are some important things to consider.
  • What you need to know about IVF ‘add-ons’
    In the last few years a number of so called ‘add-ons’, or ‘adjuvant’ therapies, have been offered by IVF clinics. But many of these ‘add-ons’ are experimental or have not been properly tested.
