Before going to the consultation, you must collect all relevant medical information. This includes medical history, previous test results, and any fertility treatments you have tried. Transparency with your doctor is key to an accurate evaluation and effective treatment plan.

Some basic tests are usually performed during this first visit. For women, this may include ultrasounds to assess the health of the uterus and ovaries, while in men, a semen analysis may be the first step in assessing your fertility.
