Our Brisbane Fertility Specialists

Begin the path to pregnancy knowing you’re in experienced hands with Brisbane’s leading fertility specialists.

Eve Health is a specialist fertility clinic in Brisbane. We welcome everyone who wishes to become a parent and will help everyone who wishes to start a family. We have an exceptional team of specialists here to help you conceive and carry your baby to term via a range of treatment paths, including IVF if necessary.

Starting a family is an exciting, but sometimes stressful experience. Every woman is unique, which means starting a family may be more difficult for some than others.

There are many factors that can make conception more difficult for some couples, including age, weight and lifestyle factors. Eve Health offers a team of fertility experts with an unequalled range of skills including reproductive endocrinology, gynaecology, obstetrics and advanced laparoscopic surgery, as well as dedicated nurses and midwifery support for when you need it most.

Over the last 16 years, Eve Health have successfully assisted thousands of Brisbane couples with conception through world class fertility treatment. Eve Health is partnered with Monash IVF, ensuring that our fertility patients access the best scientific minds, state of the art technologies and resources.

Our team of fertility doctors are committed to understanding your individual circumstance and choosing the treatment path that best suits your personal and clinical needs. Your Doctor and dedicated fertility nurse will guide you through the process with support and care.

Not everyone requires IVF (In vitro fertilization) to achieve a family, and many couples successfully conceive with less invasive treatment.  Having a skilled fertility doctor will mean that your assessment and treatment will be tailored very carefully to your unique circumstances.  Eve Health is the only fertility clinic in Queensland to have two Gynaecologists who have completed the highest level of advanced specialist training in reproductive endocrinology and fertility (CREI subspecialty) and thus are an outstanding resource to our fertility team.

Our team have advanced laparoscopic surgical training and have trained internationally in leading hospitals. They are actively involved in clinical research and teaching and considered leaders in fertility.

Our clinic is centrally located in Spring Hill, Brisbane, QLD – call us now on 07 3332 1999 to book an appointment with one of our fertility specialists.

Common Fertility Treatments

Ovulation Induction

This involves using medication, either oral tablets for 5 days, starting around day 2 or 3 of the cycle or self-administering some injectable medication into the subcutaneous tissue of the abdomen every day for approx. 10-14 days. These medications are easy to use and help the body to produce an egg. We monitor the growth and development of this egg with blood tests and ultrasounds until we know it is mature enough to fertilise.  Once the body is ready to release the egg your doctor or nurse will tell you when is the right time to have intercourse and thus optimise the chance of fertilisation.

Intrauterine insemination (IUI)

As an added step to both ovulation monitoring and ovulation induction, patients may benefit from Intrauterine insemination (IUI). IUI is a method of inserting prepared sperm (a process which results in a higher concentration of motile sperm) directly into the uterus around the time of ovulation. IUI is also the first line treatment option available to women and couples requiring donor sperm. The procedure is very similar, to that of a pap smear and may be performed by either your doctor or clinic nurse. Most patients undergo a few cycles of IUI and if unsuccessful then they may choose to progress to IVF.

(IVF) In Vitro Fertilisation 

Follows the initial pathway of ovulation induction using injectable medication, but with an aim to grow many (but not too many) eggs. Our IVF Doctors do this by giving you a higher dose of medication and add in a second drug to stop you releasing these eggs on your own. The eggs are removed during a day surgery procedure which is performed trans-vaginally while you are asleep under a general anaesthetic. The eggs are fertilised in a laboratory with prepared sperm from your partner or donor and the resulting embryos are monitored for a few days before selecting the best one to transfer back into the uterus. The embryo transfer is also done in hospital but is essentially the same technique as the IUI procedure, so you are awake and there should be minimal discomfort if any. Additional embryos that you may have created can be frozen for future transfers if they are suitable. These embryos avoid the need to undergo a full IVF cycle in the future and can be thawed and transferred easily the next time you would like to try and fall pregnant. (This may be straight away if unsuccessful) or years down the track should you decide you want to grow your family even more!
