Fertility survey


This project aims to understand how the suspension of fertility services due to COVID-19 has affected those trying to conceive. We want to understand the impact of the suspension on patients, so that they can be properly supported now that services have resumed.

Your participation in this survey is voluntary.

The data you submit is anonymous. There is an opportunity to give your name and email address at the end of the survey, but this is entirely optional. Your name and email address will never be published or shared with any third parties.

The results of this survey will be published anonymously and used as part of our advocacy work to support patients who have been affected.

We are interested to hear from you if you are:

-       Living in the UK
-       Aged over 18
-       And you were having treatment, waiting to receive treatment, or planning to seek treatment for infertility when the global pandemic of COVID-19 was declared on 12th March 2020.

We are aware that the suspension of fertility treatments across the UK due to COVID-19 has affected many people who are currently trying to conceive (TTC). If you have been affected – because you were already undergoing treatment, on a waiting list, or considering fertility treatment – we would like to learn more about how the suspension affected you, and how things are for you now that services have resumed.

Thank you.

About the Centre for Reproductive Research and Communication

The Centre for Reproductive Research & Communication (CRRC) is run by the British Pregnancy Advisory Service (BPAS) to develop and deliver a research agenda that furthers patients’ access to evidence-based reproductive healthcare, driven by an understanding of patients’ perspectives and needs. The CRRC was established in 2019, with a mission to emphasise patients’ experiences of reproductive health and pregnancy-related issues, from infertility to infant feeding, and make recommendations for where improvements can be made. We draw directly on BPAS’s work providing care for people with an unplanned pregnancy or a pregnancy they cannot carry to term, but more importantly we apply BPAS’s belief in providing evidence-based information and delivering patient-centred care, across the spectrum of reproductive issues.
