      Package

      What's included?

      Our packages are carefully designed to ensure you are aware of costs upfront, with no surprises. This approach allows us to focus on providing you with the best possible care.

      This package includes all of the medical necessities that both mothers will need for a full IVF cycle. A full IVF cycle consists of one episode of ovarian stimulation followed by egg collection for the biological mother and one transfer event of resultant embryo(s) for the gestational mother.

      The package does not include donor sperm. This is something that Semovo, our trusted partner and UK-based sperm bank, can help with. We do accept donor sperm from a selection of other reputable sperm banks - please contact our team if you wish to use another sperm bank.

      Not included

      Covid tests

      Please note that during the Covid-19 situation, to protect you and staff we have decided to carry out Covid Antigen tests for those undergoing treatment. We feel these are necessary to ensure that treatment is carried out safely.

      Covid Antigen tests cost £80 each, and you should expect around two tests per cycle.  Apricity’s Covid Antigen tests are priced at cost price without applying a premium or profit margin. 

      If you are experiencing Covid symptoms, please be aware that you are able to access a free Covid antigen test available through the NHS by visiting the following website:  https://www.nhs.uk/ask-for-a-coronavirus-test

      Donor sperm

      The package does not include donor sperm, but our trusted partner, UK-based egg bank Semovo, can help. Price for one treatment cycle is £975. Start your journey with Semovo here

      We do accept donor sperm from a selection of other reputable sperm banks - please contact our team if you wish to use another sperm bank.

      Once you have identified your donor sperm, our team can place the order and make arrangements on your behalf.

      The HFEA considers that there isn't enough evidence to support the efficacy of some "add-on" treatments such as time-lapse imaging or PGS, which is why we do not include them in our standard pricing packages. We also do not include non-routine tests such as Natural Killer Cells or DNA fragmentation, although if required we would be happy to arrange them for you at additional cost.

      Additional Services

      We are committed to providing a fertility journey based around your needs and preferences. Explore our additional services, which you can add to enhance your package upfront or any stage of your treatment.

      *Evidence on the effectiveness of acupuncture and reflexology for this purpose is unclear and for most patients having routine in vitro fertilisation (IVF) is effective without using any complementary therapies.

      Termination, Cancellation and Refunds

      In the unfortunate event that your cycle is canceled, or certain milestones are not met, we are committed to refunding you part of your treatment cost.

      View our Termination, Cancellation and Refunds policy below.

      Legal aspects

      We will provide you with all the legal information necessary regarding parenthood and parental responsibility. 

      We will also ensure that all required consent forms are completed, including the HFEA Legal parenthood consents, which gives both partners legal parenthood of any child born as a result of their treatment.

      Other treatments and services

      We also offer other treatment options for lesbian couples interested in conceiving:

      • Intra-Uterine Insemination (IUI) with donor sperm: This if often the simplest method of conceiving as a lesbian couple. IUI is less invasive than IVF, and involves minimal discomfort. In this process, donor sperm is injected directly into the womb during time of high ovulation. You can learn more on our IUI package page
      • IVF with donor sperm: In vitro fertilisation with donor sperm involves collecting eggs from your ovaries and fertilising them using donor sperm. The best-quality fertilised egg (the embryo), is then placed back in your womb. You can learn more on our IVF package page

      If you would like to learn more about our treatment options for lesbian couples, book a call with one of our Fertility Advisors.
