Fertility Point Kenya (FPK) is holding a free fertility medical camp in Mombasa at the sidelines of the Kenya Primary School Heads Association (Kepsha) AGM held at Sheikh Zayed Hall in Mombasa.
During the four-day conference from December 27 to December 30, 2021, Fertility Point’s team of highly qualified and internationally trained fertility experts will help anyone who is struggling with infertility get the assistance they need.
Patients who visit the clinic’s tent at the conference will have a chance of getting a free consultation on any fertility-related concern, interact with FPK’s fertility experts, understand the available treatment options for infertility and ultimately get help. They will also be gifted with special hampers from the clinic.
The ongoing free fertility medical camp by Fertility Point has been hailed by delegates and Mombasa residents as timely.
Forty-three-year-old Amani Thethe could not hide her excitement after learning that the clinic had brought free fertility consultation services right to her doorstep. “We are privileged to have fertility treatment services brought close to us. I have been suffering from hormonal imbalances which have affected my chances of getting pregnant but the hassle of getting treatment here in Mombasa has put me off,” she narrates.
“Today, I’m overwhelmed with joy after receiving fertility treatment services I had longed for. I have been told that my condition is one of the common causes of infertility among women, so I shouldn’t lose hope because there are treatment options that can help me conceive. The most exciting thing is that I have not paid even a single coin. However, I have booked an appointment for further assessment of my condition and help,” she added.
For Jumuia Abdallah, 37, an opportunity to get free and personalized fertility services is always welcomed. She notes that the stigma associated with infertility scares a lot of people, resulting in a population that is silently suffering from diséases but unable to do much about it.
“I want to encourage those who haven’t taken advantage of this free medical camp to do so. I want to thank Fertility Point for trying to debunk the myths around infertility and bring such crucial services closer to the people,” she explains.
Fertility Point is among the world’s largest providers of fertility services with outlets in 12 countries globally. In Africa, it has set up a Centre of Excellence in Kenya.
Since its inception in 2018, Fertility Point has been offering quality and affordable treatment to men and women by providing a first-rate diagnosis of infertility and effective treatments, including In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) and Intrauterine Insemination (IUI). IVF treatment costs range between Ksh450,000 and Ksh550,000.
“We have undertaken over 700 successful cycles of IVF and helped more than 1000 patients become parents in our three years of operation. Considering the risk factors surrounding the IVF practice and the challenges presented by patients, Fertility Point’s over 65% success rate is one of the best,” said Dr. Rajesh Chaudhary, Fertility Point’s lead IVF expert.
On his part, Mr Philip Gacheru, Director Operations at Fertility Point Kenya attributed the need to hold the medical camp in Mombasa due to increased cases of infertility across the country.
“Every day we have clients who visit our clinic requesting to get help conceive a child, and we celebrate each time we get the news that a baby has been born. We feel privileged to have helped many people fulfill their dreams of becoming parents and we now want to expand our reach across the country.” said Philip Gacheru.
