He has then received his accreditation from MOH for IVF, intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), and surgical sperm retrieval. With his expertise in women’s health, he can help families smoothly transition from fertility solutions to natal care.
Apart from fertility tests and IVF treatments, STO+G also offers SOIUI, ovulation induction, and reproductive surgery. With these services, Dr Teo can thus help couples try other methods with the aid of medical science.
This clinic also has a preconception fertility package, which includes lab tests, bedside scans, semen analysis, and even counselling. But what makes STO+G unique is that its staff have excellent bedside manners, thus providing great comfort to its patients.

This clinic’s approach pairs IVF treatments with ICSI for a simplified, cost-effective, and convenient fertility solution. It even makes a hole in the egg to improve the chances of fertilisation.
Dr Charles is also skilled in laparoscopic surgeries, thus providing a way to improve the chances of fertilisation. Aside from his expertise and years of experience, Dr Charles brings his proficiency in multiple languages when dealing with clients.
However, since the clinic only has one doctor, you may have to wait longer for an appointment with this clinic.

The Women Fertility & Fetal Care Centre is one of the best IVF clinics in Singapore with a relaxing environment. With extensive training and over 20 years of experience, Dr Ann Tan of this clinic handles all phases with precision and compassion.
First of all, she optimises her skill and interest in nutrition and its effects on the body when it comes to fertility and reproduction. Next, her clinic has the necessary tests needed before and during the IVF treatment.
And lastly, Dr Ann guides her clients through pregnancy as she is also an OB-GYN. To add to that, she is also well-known for her ability to handle high-risk pregnancies.
The clinic also offers its services in English and Chinese for inclusivity. The only downside we found of this clinic is its comparatively smaller team, with only one doctor available to oversee the staff and provide medical services.
Aside from her extensive skills and truthful service guarantees, Dr Ann Tan and the Women Fertility & Fetal Care clinic is well-praised for their supportive yet honest care. Here are the reviews that say so:
“Dr Tan truly lives up to her reputation. Not only did our IVF succeed, the high risky pregnancy was also closely and carefully managed under her care. She really made our stressful journey a much smoother and hopeful one!”Melissa
“My husband and I had a hard time conceiving for years. Our first round of IVF was not successful, but our second cycle finally got me pregnant. I’m very appreciative that Dr Tan was so supportive throughout, and also kept us informed and didnt give us false hopes, yet remained encouraging. I now have two beautiful daughters, and it still feels surreal sometimes. All my thanks to Dr Tan and her dedicated team!”Portia

Health and Fertility Centre for Women is yet another MOH-accredited IVF clinic. Dr Kelly Loi, who has received numerous accolades, trained internationally, and served for over 20 years, heads this clinic
What makes it part of the best IVF clinics in Singapore is that it offers natural and thawed IVF cycles. For thaw IVF cycles, Health and Fertility Centre allows the annual renewal of frozen eggs for up to 5 years.
To increase the chances of fertilisation, this clinic offers two options, with the first being the pairing of IVF with ICSI. The other solution that Health and Fertility Centre has includes thorough gynaecological assessment, laparoscopic and hysteroscopic procedures.
Another great thing about this clinic is that it breaks language barriers. The clinic offers its services in languages, namely English, Chinese, Bahasa, Vietnamese, and Russian.
Despite Dr Loi’s efforts and expertise, the Health and Fertility Centre still has its faults, specifically when it comes to customer services. Not only were there reports about long waiting times, but also of poor front desk hospitality.
Dr Loi and her clinic are also praised well for their relaxing and comfortable care. Read these customer reviews to know what to expect should you choose The Health and Fertility Centre as your IVF clinic:
“I’d definitely recommend Dr Kelly Loi to all couples considering doing IVF. She was the one we saw for our second IVF attempt (successful!), and she was extremely supportive, calm and honest throughout. She is now our obstetrician and we really feel well taken care of “—Seng Seng
“We’re grateful to have Dr Loi with us on our IVF journey. I know success is not a guarantee, but having such an invested and experienced doctor like Dr Loi with us has been a relief.”—Lim

Virtus Fertility Centre boasts itself of its high success rates for all ages (average of 55.9%), all thanks to its Freeze-All Approach. This approach uses the latest vitrification methods to freeze embryos, so patients can wait until the best possible time for the transfer.
What really sets this clinic apart is it values the effects of hormonal injections. Virtus thus provides private counselling for couples to ensure safety during the hormonal injection phase, and optimal conditions during the embryo implantation stage.
To cater to all steps of the IVF process, the clinic has state-of-the-art equipment for screening tests. Virtus also has six on-call doctors to oversee the process and the resulting pregnancy.
Aside from fertility services, Virtus also offers a free 4-week pre-pregnancy guide. This will help future parents handle the emotional, mental, physical, and financial requirements of bearing a child.
However, you should also be made aware that the clinic may be slow in processing public funding requests. And believe us when we say that you’d need funding assistance because Virtus’s prices are reasonable yet still on the expensive end.
Read this review from one of its customers to know what to prepare for IVF treatments with Virtus Fertility Centre:
“Success achieved 🙂 Bundle of joy created ! Prepare deep pockets, but you pay for what u get … good doctors, good lab to grow your embryos, good service, good location”

Couples who want a clinic to take care of all the aspects of the pregnancy, from prenatal care to pediatric care, may benefit from this next entry.
The Women’s Centre of the National University Hospital (NUH) is a leading institution in research and education for gynaecology, obstetrics, and fertility. It offers IVF treatments as well as embryo and sperm cryopreservation.
With its commitment to new methods, NUH is capable of providing the preimplantation genetic diagnosis. So, clients can make sure their babies are healthy and free of any genetic defects before the embryo transfer.
It is also one of the first IVF clinics in Singapore as it was established in 1982. And because it is a training ground for many clinicians, NUH has an abundance of specialists and thus caters to more patients at a given time.
Among all these benefits, you should know that the NUH doesn’t have the best customer services. With complaints about long waiting lines, difficult visitation policies, and payment fees, NUH may not be the best for those avoiding inconveniences.

Center for Assisted Reproduction (CARE) is a clinic that offers all types of services for IVF treatment, from pre-screening to implantation. The clinic has a large team of fertility specialists, embryologists, and nurses for a positive experience.
For its IVF services, CARE offers both natural and frozen cycles. It also accepts donors so clients don’t necessarily have to supply the sperm or the egg, so long as they know someone willing to donate.
Apart from IVF, CARE also provides preimplantation genetic diagnosis to find any irregularities even before pregnancy. Additionally, this clinic also offers assisted hatching to increase the chances of implanting the embryo into the uterus.
But IVF doesn’t only involve egg harvesting, embryo culture, and implanting as it also has other stages like pre-testing and hormonal stimulation. These services, however, are beyond CARE’s scope of services so you’ll have to find another clinic for such.

Aside from being highly skilled in IVF treatments, Sincere Healthcare Group is also known for its warm attitude towards its patients. Here are the reviews that’ll tell you the same thing:
“After going through treatment with Professor Ng, I was blessed with my own baby boy. During my first trimester, I had some bleeding and made urgent trips down to A&E. But throughout the journey, Professor Ng and the staff at Sincere were always calm and reassuring. This gave me tremendous amount of confidence that my pregnancies will pull through. My husband and I are really grateful to them.”—Jamie
“Before we came here wanted to seek help with my infertility problem. We searched through the website and contacted Ms Atarah, and she has explained and given us lots of encouragement. After discussing with my husband, we made a trip to meet the specialist. Service was good. We also attended the IVF counselling with their Clinic Manger Ms Han Dan. Deeply grateful for the help in making our dreams come true.”—Maggie
What to Expect with Fertility Treatment
Here are some things you should expect with IVF treatments
- Numerous preliminary tests. Your IVF specialist will need preliminary tests to determine the possible cause of infertility and address it before proceeding with IVF.
- Constant monitoring. Your fertility specialist will be monitoring your cycle as well as the egg development during the stimulation phase.
- Emotional journey. We’re not talking about the joys of becoming a mother soon. One phase of IVF will require hormonal injections or medications.
- Multiple eggs during retrieval and multiple embryos. This approach will increase the chances of getting pregnant.
- Pregnancy tests. A pregnancy test will be due around 2 weeks after the embryo implantation.
What to Look for in the Best IVF Clinic
1. Fertility rate.
First of all, you need to make sure you are dealing with a clinic that has impressive fertility rates. The higher the fertility rates, the more likely you’ll have a successful fertilisation process and the more valuable your money will be.
2. Licenses and certification of the team.
In vitro fertilisation is a complex process that requires not only delicateness but also scientific expertise. Make sure the clinic has a registered fertility specialist to conduct and oversee the procedures.
3. Patient care and customer services.
IVF is an emotional process, not only because of the excitement of finally having a baby but also because of hormonal changes. So, find customer reviews and ratings to ensure the clinic you’re choosing understands what its clients need during the fertilisation cycle.
Last but not the least, you have to make sure you can afford a clinic’s prices from start to finish. So, when enquiring about their rates, make sure you also learn about their consultation fees and not just the costs per treatment cycle.
You should also ask whether or not they accept insurance and co-funding benefits.
