Up to 1 in 10 Australian couples may have problems with conception. There are many different reasons why couples may be infertile or sub-fertile, and not uncommonly the cause is multi-factorial. Fertility treatment is tailored to individual circumstances, depending on results of investigations, practical factors (e.g. age), and the couple’s desires. Dr Ken Law will discuss your fertility treatment options with you at your consultation.
Some women may benefit from the use of medications such as Clomiphine (Clomid) or Letrozole, which induces ovulation (i.e. help release of eggs from the ovaries).
Other women may require specialised treatment such as in vitro fertilisation (IVF), intrauterine insemination (IUI) and intra-cytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI). Dr Ken Law provides these services through Care Fertility (previously known as Assisted Conception Australia) based at Greenslopes Private Hospital.

Dr Ken Law is a specialist Gynaecologist with special interest in fertility treatment. He offers comprehensive individualised care for sub-fertile or infertile women, from initial assessment and confirmation of the diagnosis of infertility, and can offer a full range of options depending on the cause of infertility, tailored towards the needs and desires of the couple.
When a pregnancy is achieved, Dr Ken Law is also a specialist Obstetrician who can continue to look after your pregnancy and delivery, providing continuity of care until the birth of your little one(s). This continuity of care is important, as couples with infertility may often have complex medical history. Having a specialist who can not only help you get pregnant but who can also continue to be your Obstetrician avoids having to explain everything again to someone else when you book in with your Obstetrician.
To discuss your specific concerns and fertility issues, please contact Dr Ken Law to arrange an appointment at Greenslopes Obstetrics and Gynaecology.
