If you’d like to make sure you have the best chance of fulfilling your dream of becoming a parent, make an appointment to speak with a City Fertility Centre specialist.
At your first consultation, your specialist will take a thorough medical history from you and your partner (if applicable) and perform any relevant examinations. The specialist will use this information to provide you with the best options to maximise your chance of conceiving a baby.
Your specialist will want to discuss things such as your menstrual cycle, how long you have been trying to conceive, lifestyle factors, and whether you have had any previous fertility treatment. Both partners are encouraged to attend this appointment.
If you have had investigations ordered by your GP, it is important to make it known to your specialist before the first consultation so that these can be accessed. Most of these do not need to be repeated. Some tests are ordered to ensure you are ready for pregnancy, while others assess the specific cause of your fertility problem. These tests may include:
At City Fertility Centre, we recommend you seek medical advice from your GP or a specialist if you have not conceived after 12 months of trying, or after six months of trying if you are over 35 years old.
There are also other instances where you might want to seek earlier fertility advice. These include: early menopause; polycystic ovaries; irregular or non-existent menstruation; history of endometriosis; when either you are or your partner is a current or past cancer patient; or when the male partner has had a vasectomy.
You and your partner will require a referral from your GP to see one of City Fertility Centre’s specialists.
Our friendly, caring staff share the same goal – to maximise your chance of conceiving a baby.
