At Cork Fertility centre we have been helping couples conceive using donor services since 2002. Our donor programmes provide couples with a chance of a pregnancy they never thought possible.

Cork Fertility Centre currently offers three donor programmes to patients:

Supporting professionals

Approximately 84% of couples in the general population will conceive within one year if they do not use contraception and if they have regular sexual intercourse. About 50% of those who do not conceive in the first year will do so in the second year, giving a cumulative pregnancy rate of 92% over two years (NICE, 2004).

Taking Fertility Seriously

"Getting pregnant and having a baby should be the most natural thing in the world. When it isn't happening quickly enough, you may need expert advice and investigations to see if an explanation can be found and to see if fertility treatment is indicated.

In today's increasingly specialised medical world, it is important to be assessed in a fertility unit where the clinicians have a proven track record in fertility enhancing surgery and assisted reproductive techniques.

With Cork Fertility Centre, you are in good hands; you can be assured that our clinicians have the necessary skills, experience and integrity you need to help you create your family."

Dr John Waterstone Medical Director

Our Philosophy

We aim to deliver a sensitive service focused on individual needs and emotional wellbeing.

We have a strong commitment to evidence based treatments and promise that we will provide honest and clear advice and will only suggest investigations or treatments that are in your best interests.

We are a welcoming and friendly centre with a highly experienced team dedicated to achieving the best results for our patients.

Although the success rates of our treatments are among the very best, we cannot guarantee that every woman attending the centre will become pregnant.

We can promise however, that each couple will receive our very best attention, expertise and care.
