4 Questions to Ask During Your First Meeting with a Fertility Specialist

4 Questions to Ask During Your First Meeting with a Fertility Specialist

by | January 19th, 2016


When you make an appointment at a fertility clinic, you should aim to get everything out of it that you can.

Questions for a New York Fertility Specialist At New York Fertility Services, we want you to leave your first appointment feeling hopeful and more in control of your fertility options. We understand the appointment can be a little overwhelming and that you may have so many questions that you aren’t sure where to begin. However, you should be sure to get the answers to these four questions:

What Are the First Steps I Will Take? 
The first part of any infertility treatment is to determine the root cause of infertility. Ask about the tests the fertility doctor will use to test your fertility and why each recommended test is necessary. This question also opens up the door for you to talk about a very important part of fertility treatment with your doctor namely your financial concerns. If you have insurance or financial constraints that need to be weighed as your fertility issues are explored, let your doctor know.

What Fertility Treatments Do You Offer? 
Not all fertility clinics offer the same kinds of treatments. At New York Fertility Services, we offer  IUI, IVF, egg freezing, surrogacy, egg donation and treatments of underlying issues that contribute to infertility.

What Are Your Success Rates? 
Sometimes, more than one round of a fertility treatment is necessary to achieve pregnancy. Also, not all fertility treatments will work for everyone. Discuss the fertility clinic’s success rate with the doctor, so you understand your odds of becoming pregnant. If a doctor is unwilling to discuss these rates with you, be wary. At New York Fertility Services, our results are on our website.

When Do We Start? 
Your doctor may need some time to track information about you, like your menstrual cycle, before he or she can begin treatments. Your doctor may also need to complete medical testing. Ask about a time table for your ultimate fertility plan.

At New York Fertility Services, no question is ever too big or too small—we’re always available to talk about your needs and concerns. Schedule an appointment with our compassionate clinic today by calling (212) 679-2289.
