Initial Consultation  During the consultation session a qualified member of our staff will take records of the medical histories of the patients. The female partner will be physically examined and receive an ultra sound scan. The male partner will be asked to provide a fresh semen specimen for assessment and should have therefore abstained from ejaculation for a period of 3-5 days. Following the findings of the initial consultation the couple may be asked to carry out a number of blood tests which will enable subsequent investigation.


Diagnosis  A prerequisite to successful fertility treatments is the establishment of the correct diagnosis. The investigations preceding treatment implementation include the assessment of the semen quality in the male partner and a series of examinations relating to the female spouse. Such screenings may involve a detailed ultra sound scan to evaluate the appearance and quality of the ovaries and the uterus, a hystero-salpyngogram to assess the endometrial cavity and the patency of the fallopian tubes, blood tests for infectious, immunological and/or genetic markers. In certain cases a hysteroscopy and/or a laparoscopy may be advised.

Follow-up Consultation  Almost always a follow-up consultation is necessary in view of discussing the findings of the diagnosis and to advise future options to treatment. A decision is taken at this stage as to which treatment modality is more appropriate for each couple. A treatment plan is also described at this stage and the relevant protocols, prescriptions and consent forms are reviewed for consideration.

Treatment

The type of treatment which a couple will pursue would have already been discussed and analyzed in detail by this stage. Almost all treatment protocols entail the administration of hormonal analogs to the female partner. These compounds are safe when administered using the correct dosage and have not been proven to be associated with the incidence of cancer to the recipients.
