WHAT TO EXPECT ON YOUR FIRST VISIT
At Fertility First, there are no waiting times, as we believe it is important for you to receive the most appropriate treatment as and when it’s required. The timing of a visitation is determined by you, within the constraints of the menstrual cycle.
As infertility can involve both the man and the woman, if you have a partner, it would be beneficial for you both to attend your first consultation together, so we provide you with the most accurate assessment and begin your treatment as soon as possible.
In order to assist you, we offer a range of appointments throughout the week so you can find one that suits you best.
To be eligible for Medicare rebates from your first visit, you will need a current referral to Fertility First. GP referrals are valid for 12 months, and specialist referrals are valid for 3 months.
We aim to have your test results back within 2 to 3 weeks, which means, unless any assessment of the fallopian tubes is required, treatment options can then be considered.
If a semen analysis is required, our staff can help you arrange an appointment as soon as possible at our Andrology laboratory. You will need to make the appointment in advance, so we can ensure that we have the correct staff available to carry out your test. In addition to a full semen analysis, our clinic will assess of the level of sperm DNA damage and screen for the Zika virus with all our male patients.
At Fertility First, we believe that it’s important to minimise the invasiveness of the testing process and only carry out the necessary investigations, maximising your chance of a successful outcome. In order to make this possible, our clinic will ensure there has been an assessment of the fallopian tubes in all female patients seeking fertility treatment.
