COVID-19 vaccine update

Kia ora,

We know our clients will be wondering about the safety of being immunised when undergoing, or about to start, fertility treatment. The advice remains the same from The Ministry of Health – there is no evidence that the COVID-19 vaccine effects fertility, so fertility treatment can continue during immunisation. However, it will be a personal decision and we encourage you to discuss any concerns with your Repromed fertility doctor.

We follow the advice of RANZCOG (Royal Australian & NZ College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists), read their new update HERE. A summary of key points is below:

A short survey for clients having undergone IVF within the last 24 months

If you have completed one round of IVF, the University of Auckland invites you to complete a survey. The purpose of this survey is to ask you about how you would feel about some things that might be asked of consumers when taking part in clinical trial research, for example, taking extra medicines during fertility treatment. The results of the survey will help shape a planned clinical research trial and help improve the quality of medicines and procedures offered by health services in support of women’s reproductive health.
The survey will take around 5 minutes, is confidential and there is no obligation to be part of a future clinical trial.
