  • Menopause terms explained

    Menopause: This is when a person stops having periods. To have reached menopause, periods must have stopped for 12 months. The average age for menopause is 51.

    Early menopause: This is when a person’s period stops before the age of 45. It can happen for a variety of reasons:

    • Naturally as the ovaries stop making hormones
    • Secondary to cancer treatments like radiotherapy or chemotherapy
    • After surgical removal of both ovaries.

    When early menopause occurs, this change is permanent. Pregnancy cannot occur naturally.

  • How to prepare for my first fertility appointment? (Free Guide)

    During your first consultation, the doctor will take time to learn about you, your health (and if it’s relevant, your partner’s health) and will design a fertility treatment plan for you. The consultation is also an opportunity for you to ask questions and to learn about the clinic and your doctor.

    There can be a lot of new information for you to take on-board; you may feel overwhelmed and unsure about where to start. Gynii Me has put together a list of key questions that you might want to ask at that first consultation (and feel free to adapt the question sheet to suit your personal style).

    Why not print out the questions to take along to your consultation appointment? It’ll help to jog your memory.

  • Understanding Embryo Transfer: A Step-by-Step Guide

    Embryo transfer is the last stage of your IVF treatment and takes place following the fertilisation of your eggs by IVF or ICSI.
