The Reproductive Medicine Clinic at King Edward Memorial Hospital (KEMH) provides limited, publicly funded assessment and treatment for women and couples experiencing fertility issues.
The Clinic provides investigation, education, counselling, cycle tracking, ovulation induction and surgery to women from around the state, who meet certain inclusion criteria, to assist them to conceive.
The Clinic assesses women with recurrent miscarriages and both women and men who are concerned about the implications of impending cancer treatment on their fertility (these patients can be seen at short notice).
Inclusion criteria for referral to the clinic:
Exclusion criteria for referral to the clinic:
Tests need to be performed approximately two months (60 days) prior to the appointment so that results are current at the time of the appointment.

The waiting times from GP referral to assessment in the Clinic are lengthy and may be up to 18 months. The Clinic only runs on a Monday afternoon. There are currently around 300 women waiting for an appointment to the Clinic.
Some women, following appropriate clinical assessment at the Clinic, may require surgery under the care of the Gynaecology Endoscopy team.
The Reproductive Medicine Clinic at KEMH does not provide egg or sperm donation treatment, surrogacy or pre-implantation genetic diagnosis or pre-implantation genetic screening.
Women over the age of 35 years or who have a child from their current relationship are unable to access public funding for IVF treatment.
