Patient Support

Fertility treatment can be an emotional roller coaster so getting support from people who can relate to what you’re going through is very important.

Because fertility treatment is such a complicated process, CRGW offer you an opportunity to talk to a counsellor before you start treatment. This will help you to think about your treatment in advance and how it might affect you and those close to you – now and in the future.

When you have had treatment, finding out treatment hasn’t worked can be heartbreaking. Even if you’ve tried not to get your hopes up, it’s natural to be disappointed when things don’t work out.

If you’re in that situation, it’s important to take the time to come to terms with it and give your body a chance to recover. When you’re ready, you can talk to the CRGW team about whether you should try again and what the chance of conceiving might be if you did. We may suggest a different treatment or discuss any other options for maximising your chances of conceiving.

If you’re unable to have more treatment, or you’re not sure if you want to go through treatment again, you may find it helpful to talk your feelings through with our counsellor. Some couples have different opinions on whether to continue with treatment; talking to an impartial professional may help you to think through the issues together and come to an agreement about how to move forward. Couples often feel huge benefit from counselling and gain much positivity from it.

When treatment hasn't worked the team at CRGW are here to support you. We will always see you after treatment fails but we know it’s not always easy to ask for help. But we’re here if you do. We’re here to listen...and to help. 

You don’t have to face it alone. Call us if you feel you need support or alternatively if you don't feel ready to pick up the phone or feel its easier to put your feelings into a message on your smartphone for instance which will be received and responded to by members of the team you can do that below.
