Working on fertility issues is stressful for couples. If you’ve been on the TTC (trying-to-conceive) path, or are currently on it, you know how anxiety can trail you every step of the way. Exacerbating the situation is the fact that you have to travel back and forth between different clinics and doctors to get the information and the treatments you need, an exhausting process made worse by worry. Wouldn’t it be good to have them all under one roof instead?
One place that offers this is Thomson Fertility Centre (TFC), which recently moved to Paragon Medical Centre, right in the heart of Orchard Road. Here, you can find a comprehensive suite of fertility services, for example screening and consultations, to scans, egg collection, and embryo transfer. All these services are housed within the Centre. Thus every couple can be assured of a seamless experience from fertility planning to conception.
As a result, your journey to parenthood can be a smoother, calmer one at the new Thomson Fertility Centre. Find out how:
1. Bigger space with more facilities
The new and bigger Thomson Fertility Centre is a bigger space, with an increase in facilities. Firstly, it has two operating theatres (OT), up from one at its old premises. Both OTs are fitted with brand new equipment and OT tables. In addition, there are now four consultation rooms (up from two previously) as well as more recovery beds (an increase from three to five beds). Furthermore, each recovery bed comes with individually-controlled lights, curtains, and a private lockable bedside cabinet. These thoughtful details ensure comfort and privacy for every patient.
2. In-house laboratory at Thomson Fertility Centre
Thomson Fertility Centre has its own in-house laboratory for the handling and freezing of eggs, sperm, and embryos. This, together with the Centre’s in-house OTs (see #1) for egg and sperm retrieval and embryo implantation, ensure that all specimens stay in the same facility. In short, this ensures their safety and reduces the risk of mix-ups. Moreover, only one individual or couple’s specimens are worked on at any one time. Finally, every step is witnessed and counter-signed by a second staff member. These steps, among others, help to eliminate human error.
3. One centre for all services
Thomson Fertility Centre offers a full range of assisted reproductive treatments including (but not limited to):
- Fertility Screening
- Assisted Reproductive Technologies such as In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF and Intrauterine Insemination (IUI)
- Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD)
- Surgical Sperm Retrieval
- Semen Analysis
- Fertility Preservation, and
- Donor Programme
Other than reproductive surgery (like fibroid removal) which takes places at Thomson Medical Centre, all services can be done here. That is to say, you can even receive your blood test results at Thomson Fertility Centre. Hence the experience is thoroughly seamless, unlike at some restructured hospitals where you have to visit different departments under different appointments for different procedures.
4. One team for your care
Your fertility needs are unique, just like you. And every couple is different, with different fertility needs. Hence you and your spouse will get a bespoke treatment plan tailored just for the two of you. You will also have the same team of doctors, embryologists, and nurses working seamlessly to provide quality care for you throughout your fertility journey with Thomson Fertility Centre.
5. Western IVF procedures complemented with TCM
Thomson Fertility Centre offers a holistic approach that allows couples to receive treatment from Thomson Chinese Medicine. If you choose to have the Holistic Fertility Consult, you will receive consultation from both western and TCM specialists — giving you a truly holistic fertility assessment. With this in hand, you can go on to enjoy the best of East and West in your fertility treatments.
6. Convenient TCM consultation and treatment
Thomson Chinese Medicine is located within the same building (on the 18th floor) as Thomson Fertility Centre. Hence there is added convenience for those who opt for TCM treatments to complement their IVF/IUI treatments. For instance, you can choose to have acupuncture (which can help increase blood flow to the uterus and stimulate ovaries to improve the changes of pregnancy) on the very same day as your appointments for IVF/IUI treatment.
7. Wellness services
Similarly, couples can also enjoy a wide range of health and wellness services at Thomson Wellth Clinic in Paragon. This means that treatment, management and prevention have been integrated into a single location. In short, you have health screening, imaging, musculoskeletal health, and medical aesthetics under one roof.
