Yesterday we discovered that my husband has a low sperm count. We have been advised to seek ICSI/IVF help. Can anyone recommend a clinic in London which they know has had good results? I feel quite overwhelmed and unsure where to start. Any advice would be much appreciated. Thank you.

We found CRM London good and they have good results :-)

Would highly recommend ARGC. Also I found this article really useful to compare clinic success rates. All the very best of luck x

I'm 19 weeks pregnant after IVF ICSI at Chelsea and Westminster hospital. Good luck x

I would go straight to Zita West. Only recently started doing ivf but have pulled best experts from all over. If I was going for icsi, I'd go straight to them.

Hey, I have just finished my 1st cycle with the lister clinic and they have been so amazing. I can't rate them enough. Good luck x

Hello! I am in exactly the same position as you! I'm trying to try and find a London clinic for IVF/ICSI for DH and I (we also have male factor infertility. It's really sad and daunting and hard to know where to start to find the right place. I'm trying to stay positive for my DH who is finding it very hard to come to terms with. Wishing you loads of luck X

Another vote for the lister. My gorgeous sleeping babe is down to them.

Thanks for your support. We met with CRM this week and found them to be very professional/kind/reassuring. We are going to go with them as Dr Foreman has such good reviews and statistics. Felt in very safe hands. I will keep you posted.
I may well do some acupuncture and get some massages to keep me relaxed.
Best of luck to you all.

Londongirl84, congratulations! Can you share a view of the all in cost with C&W? they were just recommended by my GP. I already have a son, so it is out of pocket for me. thanks

I think the total figure for our icsi was £5-6000. A scary figure but hopefully will give us the best present in the workd in just a few months time!! So much luck x

I would agree with dannygirl and would highly recommend ARGC. It is v expensive but totally worth it in my opinion - currently sat here with my 5 week old twins who are the result of my first IVF cycle.

My 6 year old DS is a result of ICSI at the ARGC. They throw everything at the 'problem'. When I did ICSI they were amongst the best in the country for results. Good luck. I know how awful infertility is but you will get through it and I didn't find the experience too bad IMO.
