MY FIRST APPOINTMENT

Dealing with difficulties in fertility can be a challenging and overwhelming experience, leading to stress, confusion, and frustration. Insufficient information can amplify these emotions when considering options for treatment.

Our devoted team of experts, comprising fertility doctors, nurses, and clinicians, recognizes the significance of providing comprehensive knowledge to assist you throughout your treatment journey.

Our primary aim is to ensure your ease and confidence in the care you receive, leveraging advanced technologies and expertise to enhance your chances of achieving success. With over three decades of experience and a collaborative approach to addressing intricate reproductive disorders, we deliver exceptional care conveniently accessible to you.

Since 1986, we have had the privilege of witnessing the arrival of more than 90,000 babies, and we are unwavering in our commitment to helping you realize your dream of starting or expanding your family.

WHAT TO EXPECT

During your first appointment, we will comprehensively assess your fertility health, medical background, and available reproductive choices. Our team of fertility specialists will dedicate the necessary time to conduct a thorough evaluation and create a personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific requirements. 

Whether your situation is simple or complex, we will navigate the consultation process together and steer you toward the most efficient path for achieving a successful and timely pregnancy.

During your initial appointment, you will have the opportunity to:

  • Familiarize yourself with your fertility physician
  • Engage in a dialogue regarding your fertility aspirations
  • Delve into your medical background
  • Receive comprehensive explanations and address any inquiries or anxieties
  • Gain insights into reproductive alternatives that align with your specific requirements
  • Meet the nursing staff dedicated to your care
  • Formulate a personalized fertility plan
  • Arrange for forthcoming assessments or examinations

BRING SUPPORT

Having a robust social support system is highly beneficial. We highly recommend that both partners attend the initial appointment together, as it is crucial for both individuals to comprehend the upcoming journey. Infertility impacts both men and women equally, so it is vital for both partners to be well-informed. 

If you are single, you might consider inviting a trusted friend or family member to accompany you, if you feel comfortable. Having an additional person present can assist in digesting the significant information provided.

WHO YOU WILL MEET

Our objective is to ensure that you depart from your initial fertility appointment feeling self-assured and with a distinct, optimistic comprehension of your actionable strategy moving forward.

During your initial visit, you will have the opportunity to meet with:

  • A fertility specialist from Boston IVF who will gather essential details and develop a personalized treatment strategy to support your fertility objectives.
  • A dedicated nurse specializing in fertility care who will work closely with the doctor to implement your customized treatment plan.
  • A financial coordinator who will act as a liaison between you and your insurance provider, advocating on your behalf to reduce costs and alleviate financial concerns.

Central to your initial appointment is a candid and transparent conversation that will facilitate the initiation of an accurate diagnosis and a well-defined treatment strategy.

MAXIMIZE YOUR VISIT

It is common for individuals to feel hesitant when it comes to asking multiple questions. However, during your initial fertility consultation, we encourage you to feel at ease in asking as many questions as you need. 

We want to make sure that you have a clear understanding of the topics we cover and that you feel confident in comprehending any potential diagnoses or recommended treatments that align with your specific situation. Rest assured, our primary aim during this meeting is to address all your concerns and ensure your comfort and understanding.

To assist you in preparing for your first fertility visit, we have compiled a range of potential areas and inquiries that may be discussed:

  • Duration of sexual activity without contraception
  • Length of active attempts to conceive
  • Regularity and symptoms of menstrual cycles
  • History of miscarriages, if any
  • Genetic conditions present in your family background
  • Prior medical or fertility interventions, if applicable
  • Recent fluctuations in body weight
  • Coping mechanisms employed by you and your partner in addressing infertility

We hope this outline provides you with a useful starting point for the discussions that may take place during your initial fertility consultation.
