Choosing a Fertility Clinic in Cape Town
There are a number of fertility clinics in Cape Town and there a several reasons for this.
Firstly, Cape Town is an important economic hub in South Africa and on the African continent. It is a vibrant, modern city, offering an extensive range of medical facilities like other major cities in the world.
Cape Town is also medical hotspot with medical facilities ranging from private specialist clinics to the world-famous Groote Schuur Hospital – probably one of South Africa’s premier hospitals – known worldwide as the location of the world’s first successful human heart transplant – and locally renowned as the training ground for some of South Africa’s best doctors, surgeons and nurses.
In addition, there are growing numbers of fertility clinics across global cities as more and more couples worldwide face fertility challenges.
While it is great to know that your choices of fertility clinics in Cape Town are not limited, it also poses a challenge in terms of how you can choose a fertility clinic from the various options, and how to make sure your choice is the best for your own unique circumstances.
Whichever fertility clinic you choose in Cape Town, make sure that you have asked the following questions:
1. Is the fertility clinic accredited?
Make sure that the fertility clinic you choose is accredited by the Southern African Society for Reproductive Medicine and Gynaecological Endoscopy (SASREG). Visit the SASREG website www.fertilitysa.co.za to check if the fertility clinic you are considering is registered.
2. Are the clinic’s fertility specialists qualified and experienced?
The fertility clinic you choose should be staffed by experts in fertility. Remember that fertility treatments require more than a single reproductive specialist – an entire team of fertility experts are required to achieve the best results.
3. What facilities do the fertility clinic offer?
Check whether the fertility clinic you are considering has dedicated facilities for fertility treatments and state-of-the-art equipment that will allow for advanced fertility treatments.
4. Does the fertility clinic offer a range of treatments?
A fertility clinic that offers the full spectrum of fertility treatments will ensure you can receive all the fertility treatments you may require at one clinic and with one fertility team.
5. What results do the fertility clinic achieve?
The better the success rates of a fertility clinic, the better your chances of falling pregnant. Check the fertility clinic’s success rate and compare it to other clinics and national or international success rates.
6. What do the fertility clinic’s patients say?
The comments, feedback and testimonials of a fertility clinic’s patients will also give you a good idea of what you can expect when choosing a fertility clinic.
