Single Women

With three events taking place in Wales and the South West in the next month, we take a closer look at what happens during our open days and why people should come along.

The latest figures from the HFEA report that the number of IVF cycles completed by single women increased by 4% between 2016-2017.

 

The latest figures from the HFEA show that same-sex female couples seeking IVF has risen eight-fold in the last decade and the number of single women having fertility treatment has more than doubled. 

Woman’s Hour featured two women who had opted to start a family as solo mothers:  Genevieve Roberts who used donor sperm to have her children and Beth who used donor sperm and donor eggs from the London Egg Bank

The LWC are proud to be sponsoring a whole day of events at Fertility Fest 2019 called What Comes First: the Career or the Egg which takes place on Saturday 4th May 2019 at the Barbican, London.

Recently we worked with the BBC on their egg freezing documentary. You can see their video here, and the audio version goes out on Radio 4 at 5pm today (Tuesday 19th March).

On International Women’s Day it’s a good opportunity for us as a clinic to reflect on how things have changed for women and their fertility choices. 

You may have seen the news about fertility experts and campaigners putting pressure on the government to change the law about the length of time women can store their frozen eggs. Currently, this storage time limit is ten years for women who freeze their eggs for social reasons.
