Dr Gavin Kemball

A fertility specialist for life

Fertility and IVF

“If you are having trouble falling pregnant, it’s important not to worry too much. There are many simple things we can do to achieve a pregnancy – it’s not as daunting as you might think, and not all treatments lead to IVF.”

An empathetic approach to fertility treatment

As many as one in six Australian couples have difficulty conceiving, so if it is taking longer than you expected you are not alone. However, as you get older your chance of falling pregnant decreases rapidly and you may want to seek specialist advice. With expertise in a wide range of fertility treatment options, Dr Kemball can help you realise your dream of having a baby.

His approach is to simplify and demystify as much as possible, and to be understanding and honest about the chances of success and the journey you are about to undertake.

Have confidence in our advanced science and experience

Dr Kemball was impressed by the accessibility of advanced fertility treatments in Australia when he first worked here with Professor Michael Chapman as a Reproductive Fellow more than 10 years ago, and he joined IVFAustralia as a Fertility Specialist in 2010. With expertise in embryology, andrology and reproductive science, this network gives him access to the most advanced fertility treatments available.

After your first consultation, you may undergo diagnostic tests to uncover any potential problems causing infertility. This could include laparoscopic surgery to investigate fertility issues at St George Hospital or City East Specialist Day Hospital.

It’s important to understand you may not need IVF treatment. Depending on your age and circumstances, it may be more beneficial to start with a more natural and less invasive approach, such as IUI or Ovulation Induction.
