Local clients live near one of our locations and have the majority of their appointments done right at our offices. They also have the benefit of enjoying our one of a kind fertility wellness spa CNY healing arts for the duration of their treatment and beyond. Generally, your process will follow the main steps below.
Scheduling Your Consultation
After scheduling your consultation (or even before) we recommend you start many of the non-pharmacological changes found on these pages for males and females: including a high fat low carbohydrate diet (Kiltz’s Keto), taking supplements, and a number of other fertility enhancing lifestyle changes.
The primary goal of the consultation is for us to listen and understand your hopes and expectations so we can collectively create a suitable plan of action. You can expect the initial consultation to last around 30-60 minutes and is best if both partners can attend.
The consultation is also a wonderful time to perform some necessary testing for both male and female partners. Most testing is complete the same day and can help us inform a treatment plan. If anything can’t be run that day like an HSG is done later and changes our recommended course of action, you will be notified at that time and have the opportunity to discuss your options again with a provider.
After reviewing your medical history and goals we may recommend a certain course of action, but we will never force anyone away from the treatment they desire.
You’ll also have the time to review your insurance with one of our financial coordinators and go over any pricing and payment plan information if need be.
Outside of a few one day treatments (often surgical procedures like tubal ligation reversals or vasectomy reversals) fertility treatment cycles follow a woman’s natural menstrual cycle and last anywhere from 2-8 weeks. Amazingly, eggs, sperm, and embryos can remain frozen for decades so some treatments could similarly take decades to come to a final resolution.
Because many fertility treatments use medications to stimulate egg development and properly time procedures, one most often has a number of office visits during the fertility treatment cycle called monitoring appointments. These appointments look at the woman’s follicular/egg and uterine lining development so that your provider knows when to perform the necessary procedure in an IUI, IVF, or other fertility treatment cycle.
