Dr Orford has been practicing IVF since 2001. In 2007 he became one of the founding directors of Fertility Solutions Sunshine Coast, and Fertility Solutions Bundaberg, and in 2013 became one of the founding directors of Affordable IVF Sunshine Coast & Bundaberg.

Since 2010 Dr Orford has been Medical Director of Fertility Solutions Sunshine Coast & Bundaberg and since opening in 2013, he has been Medical Director of Affordable IVF Sunshine Coast & Bundaberg.

Infertility is medically defined as the inability to conceive within 12 months of trying. By this stage 80-90% of couples, having regular midcycle intercourse will have conceived. Therefore about 1 in 6 couples will fall into the group of fertility problems. This figure increases as women age.

We usually recommend trying for 12 months before seeking medical advice, but a history of:

  • irregular periods
  • painful periods
  • pain with intercourse
  • suspected male factor reasons
  • previous fertility issues, or womans age > 35

may indicate the need for earlier investigation and / or treatment.

Success with fertility treatments is usually closely correlated to a woman’s age, regardless of whether couples are trying naturally, or with assistance.
