The guidelines by the government's health advisory board, NICE, mean more couples are eligible for treatment.
Today's fertility treatment guidelines offer hope to couples unable to conceive, but they need to be properly implemented, across the NHS.

A woman whose life has been transformed by a £250,000 a year drug is calling for it to be made available on the NHS. Kelly Bazzichi from Newbury was diagnosed with a rare kidney condition called A-H-U-S in 2011.
Since then she's been getting the drug as part of a trial - but unless the government approve it, she could have to go back on dialysis. Kate Bunkall reports
Today's new fertility treatment guidelines should make three IVF cycles available to couples unable to conceive as standard, across the NHS, thus ending the so-called 'postcode lottery'.
Professor Tim Child from the Oxford Fertility Centre said the new recommendations, if implemented properly by NHS providers, will improve access to treatment and make it more fair.
More couples struggling to conceive are to get IVF under new guidelines finalised today.
The age at which women can have treatment on the NHS will be raised from the current age limit of 39 to 42.
Mandy Parry spent £60,000 to have her daughter Violet, after seven cycles of IVF.
She told Daybreak that the experience of infertility is "so devastating", women needed all the help they can get.
Chief Executive of NICE, Sir Andrew Dillon, says including same-sex couples in the IVF guidelines for the first time "reflects the right thing to do".
The National Infertility Awareness Campaign warned that as NICE guidelines are not mandatory, fears still remained over local implementation.
By updating the fertility guideline and extending the range of people it is recommending receive treatment, NICE clearly understands the impact which infertility has on people.
And we must be clear that infertility is a medical condition that causes significant distress for those trying to have a baby and has a devastating impact on people's lives.
– Clare Lewis-Jones, Chairwoman of National Infertility Awareness Campaign
The current 'postcode lottery' approach to the treatment of infertility here has gone on for far too long and it is vital that the Government supports the measures in the updated guideline and communicates the need to implement them to those who commission fertility services in the NHS.
We know the current system leaves many people unable to access NHS treatment and we need reassurance about the future of NHS fertility treatment as we move towards GP commissioning in 2013.
Dr Clare Searle, who works as a GP says the guidelines from NICE are not about addressing social change, but about taking advantage of clinical effectiveness.
