  • Hi,

    I would like to know if the hospital offers fertility treatment and how much it costs for a 1st appointment and sperm count exam.

    I plan to go to SA end of Sep this year.

    Please also send me the contacts for the fertility doctor.

    • Hi Raquel. It is best to speak to the hospital directly about the treatments they offer. In most instances you will have to consult with one of the gynecologists in their medical centre. Refer to their website for specialists at the hospital. We are an independent website on private hospitals in south African and not affiliated with the hospital in question.
