Galway Satellite Clinic

Merrion Fertility Clinic has a satellite clinic in Galway City for our patients based in the West of Ireland

History of our Relationship with FFH

We have a long history of working with Fertility & Fetal Health, beginning in 2019. The practice is owned by Dr Nikhil Purandare, who is a very respected Consultant Obstetrician & Gynaecologist, with a sub-speciality in fertility. Together, we have co-managed hundreds of fertility treatment cycles over the years.

How Does the Process Work?

Initial Investigations

You can have your initial investigations, the ultrasound scan and semen analysis, in Galway. There are also blood tests that need to be carried out, and these can be done with your GP.

Doctor Consultation

After you carry out your investigations, you will be booked for a consultation with a Merrion Fertility Clinic Doctor. You can opt to do this consultation online or, if you would prefer, you can travel to our clinic in Dublin to see the Doctor in-person.

IVF & ICSI Cycles

If the Doctor refers you for an IVF or ICSI treatment cycle, you will be able to have your ultrasound scan appointments in Galway. There are generally about three scans per cycle. There are also some blood tests, which can be carried out in Galway.

Attending the Clinic in Dublin

For an IVF or ICSI cycle, you would need to attend for a pre-treatment appointment which would include:

  • meeting a fertility nurse to go through your medication plan
  • the nurse will also arrange your treatment dates
  • viral screening (blood tests)

You would also need to attend for the egg retrieval and the embryo transfer.

Frozen Embryo Transfer (FET) Cycles

In a FET cycle, you will be able to have your ultrasound scan appointments in Galway. There are generally about two scans per cycle. There may also be some blood tests, which can also be carried out in Galway.

We will call you with your treatment dates and we will send you your medication instructions via our patient portal.

You would only need to attend the Dublin clinic for the embryo transfer.

Pregnancy Testing & Early Scans

These would take place in Galway.

Cancelled or Unsuccessful Treatment Cycles

If your cycle had to be cancelled or did not result in a pregnancy, it is discussed at a weekly multidisciplinary meeting attended by our Doctors, Nurses and Embryologists.

Recommendations are made for the ongoing care of each patient. A review consultation will then be booked so you can discuss your next steps with the Doctor.

Your Journey with Merrion Fertility Clinic

As soon as we receive your referral, our Patient Coordinator will be in touch with you to organise a consultation with one of our expert medical team and to book any required tests.
