At The Bridge Clinic we are committed to helping you realise your dream of having a family. With FertilitySure we can make an accurate diagnosis and design a treatment plan to suit your specific needs.

What is FertilitySure?

FertilitySure is a series of assessments which help us to diagnose the reasons for infertility challenges in patients.

There are three fertility assessments; FertilitySure Lite, FertilitySure Comprehensive and FertilitySure Plus, and an additional, optional assessment called FertilitySure Life which assesses your general health.

The fertility assessments increase in complexity, if your first assessment reveals the source of the problem, you may not need to progress to the next assessment. They each fulfil different requirements. Couples who are unaware of their fertility status require certain tests. Different tests are required for a couple who have already undergone treatment without success.

FertilitySure Lite is the first and most accessible step toward diagnosing any fertility challenges you may have.

What sets FertilitySure apart?

There is more to a FertilitySure fertility assessment than diagnosing the reasons for your fertility challenges and presenting the correct treatment plan. What sets FertilitySure apart is the fact that each assessment includes additional services which add value and ensure an all-round reassuring experience.

After your initial appointment at The Bridge Clinic, your specialist may recommend a FertilitySure assessment. Prior to this assessment you need to have blood tests in a PathCare laboratory. Remember to take the results of your tests to your appointment with your specialist.

A detailed report PLUS a review appointment with a specialist

At the end of your FertilitySure assessment, your specialist will review all the tests and procedures undergone and give you a comprehensive report. This report will help you to understand the challenges you face and will be clear and easy to understand. You can take it home to study at your leisure.

Diagnosis and treatment plan

Propose based on the report and findings during the assessment, your fertility specialist will propose the best treatment plan for you. At The Bridge Clinic, we consider all possible treatment options for our patients. These options fall into four different categories; Primary Care , Specialist Care , Advanced Care , Alternatives Care.

When we have found the cause of your fertility challenge and suggested a treatment plan, we compile a schedule and explain the various steps and procedures. The treatment plan will identify the treatment process in detail and, in some primary care treatment options, we may refer you to our doctor partners to ensure you get the best possible care, without paying specialist rates.

Financial planning

Specialist medical care is costly the world over. It is the same in Nigeria, where access to world class healthcare is not readily available. During your treatment at The Bridge Clinic, you will receive excellent care from internationally-trained doctors who use top quality, imported equipment and leading brand medication.

Infertility treatment can pose a financial challenge but we don’t want the lack of money to prevent you from fulfilling your dream. We offer our patients assistance with financial planning in terms of loans and savings plans, free of charge.

This service was developed in partnership with Access Bank and Page Bank.

Counselling

Coping with infertility can be traumatic and place an unnecessary strain on your relationship. Stress can make becoming pregnant even more difficult. We believe in supporting the emotional as well as the physical wellbeing of our patients and, when you choose FertilitySure, you can consult one of our professional counsellors at no additional cost. He or she will give you invaluable support throughout your assessments and subsequent treatments.

Peer-to-Peer Support

Once a quarter on the first Saturday of that month, The Bridge Clinic hosts a get together for couples facing fertility issues. At these Welcome Forums, you can meet other couples experiencing the same challenges and families who have gone through the treatment process successfully. This is the ideal opportunity to exchange experiences and ask any questions you may have about our treatments. Read about our upcoming Welcome Forums for 2016 and the topics we will discuss on the day here.
