Infertility Counselling, Treatment & Support
Dimbayaa fertility project is deeply committed to provide all the primary and ancillary services related to infertility counseling, diagnosis and treatment. We strive to deliver affordable, simple, safe and effective help with infertility to the people of The Gambia.
At Africmed Medical Services in Brusubi, the Gambia we have developed a program for infertility care, providing counseling, standardized diagnosis and treatment; currently being ovulation induction and IUI (intra uterine insemination).
In the near future we hope to expand these services to cryopreservation (freezing) of semen and low cost IVF.
Infertility Education and Prevention in Gambia
We strongly believe education and prevention should also be part of our program. Demystifying the causes and creating awareness on fertility on the one hand, and primary prevention; sexual education of young people on how to avoid STD’s, as well as secondary prevention; early and appropriate diagnosis and treatment of STD’s, on the other hand.
Because of the wide range of psychological and social implications, counseling, education and guidance is an important part of the process of infertility investigation and treatment.
