BRISTOL-IVF Research Study

By: | Tags:

Dr Amy Taylor is lead researcher on the BRIST-IVF study, running now at the Bristol Centre for Reproductive Medicine.    Louise Brown, the world’s first IVF baby, grew up here in Bristol. Now, around 20,000 babies are born through IVF in the UK every year.    Research has enabled us to learn a great deal about IVF since Louise’s birth in 1978. We know, for example, that maternal age and the number of eggs a woman has – their ‘ovarian reserve’ – are factors which affect the success of IVF treatment. But there’s still a lot that we don’t know.    IVF treatment outcomes are still improving, albeit slowly. If we want to try and increase […]

Although this excitement was coupled with a secret feeling of dread, I had been diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome some years earlier and began to worry this wasn’t going to be as easy as we first hoped.

Amanda Jefferys, Fertility Specialist Bristol

By: | Tags: , , ,

Having worked in the field of gynaecology for the past 13 years I knew from an early stage that I was destined for a career in the fertility field. For me the field of fertility combines a number of passions – a fascination with the underlying science, and an enjoyment of the practical side including scanning and surgery but mostly I am driven by the patients I meet and the fulfilment of guiding couples and individuals through their fertility journey, in the hope of achieving the long-held dream of a […]
