Patient Resources at Bnoon Fertility Center
You may feel helpless and hopeless when pregnancy does not come easily. You might even feel alone, like no one understands what you are going through. 15% of married couples deal with delayed conception. This means you are not alone and rest assured that your situation is not hopeless.
Wondering what to take with you to your first fertility clinic appointment? Here are things that you do not want to leave behind:
A list of questions to ask your fertility physician (do not be afraid to speak up and advocate for yourself!). Please pay attention to your time during the visit and don’t lose time by remembering and suffering the past. Make use of your present time where we all care for you.
Documents including your medical history
Documents including your medical history, hospital discharge summaries, laboratory test results, results of medical imaging examinations (e.g. ultrasound), medical reports with attached test results confirming the diagnosis and treatment, information about previous surgeries and interventions (including inseminations, IVF programs) and other documents providing the basis for the verification of your medical situation by the previous physicians.
This would be helpful to save your time and commence your treatment as early as possible.
When it comes to infertility, time is not always on your side. The sooner you seek help and begin treatment, the better your chances of success.
At your first fertility appointment, your doctor will ask you many questions to make an accurate diagnosis. Be prepared to share details about the followings:
Previous pregnancies, births, and miscarriages
- Ovulation and menstrual cycle patterns
- Current and past symptoms, medications, surgeries, illnesses, and injuries
- Exposures to environmental toxins or major life stressors
- Any family history of infertility or reproductive health problems
- Certain illnesses like sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), and others
- Birth defects and previous surgeries
- Scar tissue, fibroids, or polyps in the uterus
- Male sexual dysfunction
If you have had any other health issues, be initiative and prepared to discuss them with your fertility physician.
After your first appointment, you may need to come back for more fertility tests.
Fertility tests may include hormonal tests, ultrasound, hysterosalpingography, semen analysis and other additional tests may be required based on your condition.
After extensive review, your physician will create a fertility treatment plan just suitable for you. Our goal is to maximize your chance of getting pregnant and having a healthy baby.
After the first visit, follow-up the instruction given to you and any fertility tests request must be completed before the next visit. Fertility testing results will be communicated between you and the center through our coordinators in order to be discussed with your physician in your next clinic visit.
