RobertWinston[1]The internet and print media are awash with misinformation and spurious facts about fertility and the causes of infertility. This is your opportunity to ask leading fertility expert, Professor Robert Winston those burning questions that keep you awake at night regarding fertility, IVF and general advice about getting pregnant.
This is a confidential service. However, anonymised extracts from real questions and answers (with your permission) may be posted on this page as a help to others in a similar situation. Professor Winston will answer all questions personally so please be patient as it may take a while to get to your question.Please understand that you must not expect very specific advice from Professor Winston about your precise problems because he does not have full information and has never met or examined you. A website cannot replace a full consultation. Clearly, without having taken a full history, examined you carefully, looked at ALL the tests results including X-rays and ultrasound etc. it would be presumptuous to make very specific suggestions.

IMPORTANT– Before submitting your question please read other Q&As on this site. AS WE ARE CURRENTLY EXPERIENCING A HIGH NUMBER OF SUBMISSIONS YOUR QUESTION MAY NOT BE ANSWERED IF A SIMILAR QUESTION HAS BEEN ANSWERED BEFORE. Please do not ask basic questions that should be asked of your GP.
