What Should I Do Now?

The first thing you need to do is set up an initial appointment so we can diagnose the exact cause of your infertility and devise an integrated, individualized treatment plan.

What will your fertility specialist discuss with you during your first visit?

  • Your past medical history. You will be asked about many important health issues, including menstrual history, ovulation, miscarriages, past surgeries, childhood illnesses, family medical history, etc.

  • Pre-screening tests. Individualized pre-screening tests for males and females can help your physician determine why you’re having difficulty getting pregnant. These may include tests for ovulation, quantity and quality of sperm, and adequate hormonal levels to support the embryo. The results of these tests help the doctor decide which fertility treatments are most likely to be effective.

  • Treatment advice. Once your specific diagnosis is established, your physician will recommend a treatment plan best suited to your personal situation, including such factors as your age and the duration of your infertility.
