Many patients have undergone some investigations prior to their first visit, however I see many patients either single or as a couple, who are just after some more information about their fertility and some guidance along the journey.
Common tests included blood tests, ultrasounds and semen analysis. Most information can be ascertained from speaking with patients and arranging some straightforward testing.
Several couples need further investigations to identify previously undiagnosed conditions. In particular, if they have been trying for many years without success, or if they have completed previous courses of treatment. This can all be arranged with minimal stress or impact upon your life.
