If you have been to the nurse appointment then your paperwork and test results will be ready for discussion with the doctor. If you have not been to a nurse appointment then we encourage you to bring along reports of all tests or treatment you have had previously.
Doctors appointments are available at both clinics locations or by telehealth.
We encourage both partners to attend your first doctor’s appointment so that you can both be involved in the discussions and decision-making. On the day of your appointment you should plan on spending at least one hour at our office. Please make sure that you are on time for your appointment and allow plenty of time for parking and traffic problems. If you have chosen a telehealth appointment, find a quiet space with good wifi.
Before your appointment you will need to provide photo ID and complete our medical questionnaire via our secure patient portal. It helps if you can provide copies of any previous medical tests you may have done along with treatment reports if you have had fertility surgery or fertility treatments before. If you have had the free nurse appointment, then these items, will all be sorted and ready.
The doctor will review all your information, explain your tests results, advise if there are any remaining tests you should consider and provide information on your possible treatment options.
Any blood tests that you may need can be performed by the nurses in clinic. Some tests that we perform, such as testing the tubes with a HyCoSy procedure, will require special timing with your periods. Sperm testing requires appointments and special timing as well.
The next steps for you depend on your individual situation. There are many different treatment options available.
Often some further tests are required before the doctor can help you choose your treatment plan, and provide you with the success rates and treatment options for you both as a couple.
