      • Hello Noreen,

        If you need to go to a fertility clinic but are unsure what to look for or where to start I recommend you use our Fertility Report. This is a free tool designed to provide based on your characteristics and family dynamic what reproductive technique is recommended. We also provide a list of clinics that provide these services and an estimation of the prices that range from that specific procedure. Here is our tool: Fertility Report.

        I hope I could help,

        All the best.
