Dr David Crosby

Clinical Director, Merrion Fertility Clinic

Not all fertility journeys are the same, and it remains important to offer an individualised and tailored experience for all patients, allowing them to effectively plan for the future.

We, at Merrion Fertility Clinic, treat couples who are experiencing infertility, a common disorder estimated to affect one in six couples in Ireland. We provide egg freezing to those who wish to seek this option for social or medical reasons, including adolescents and young adults who may require egg freezing prior to undergoing cancer therapy.

We provide care to single women and same-sex female couples who opt to conceive using a donor. Our expert team of embryologists work closely with our patients to help them choose the right sperm donor for them.

Steps involved in treatment

You can make a self-referral for the treatment you are interested in on our website. A patient coordinator will then get in touch with you to set up an appointment with one of our highly qualified fertility Doctors to discuss treatment options.

Before this appointment, we will arrange some basic investigations, including a blood test and pelvic ultrasound scan. These tests are performed in our clinic, where you can meet our experienced team of nurses and midwives. If you have a male partner, he may need to attend for a semen analysis.

When undergoing treatments such as IVF or egg freezing, patients can be assured that the egg collection procedure is as comfortable as possible, as a Consultant Anaesthetist is present at every procedure to deliver sedation and or analgesia.

Undergoing fertility treatment can be
a very stressful and difficult time.

Caring for patients

Merrion Fertility Clinic is Ireland’s only not-for-profit fertility clinic, and we pride ourselves on offering evidence-based care to all.

We have a close relationship with the National Maternity Hospital, Holles Street, with many of our Doctors also working in the Hospital as Consultant Obstetricians and Gynaecologists. This allows our patients continuity of care and the option to begin and continue their journey with us.

We provide preimplantation genetic testing (PGT) services to check embryos for chromosomal abnormalities and to identify the embryos with the best chance of developing into a healthy pregnancy.

Undergoing fertility treatment can be a very stressful and difficult time. Our multidisciplinary team is here to help. Our experienced counsellors can offer emotional support throughout the journey.
