What do you do during the first visit to a fertility dr?

Basically you just talk and go over your history and talk about everything. Make sure you bring a copy of all of your medical records with you from your previous doctors and tests you have had done, it will save you time. They will probably schedule testing first if you have not had any done yet, take your BBT Chart with you if you have it. My first visit they scheduled tests out for a whole cycle, I had to go almost once a week, sometimes more often to get blood work and tests done at specific times in my cycle. Then you go see the doctor at the end (the following month) and they go over all the tests and then decide where to go from there and what medications will help you. This was just my experience yours may be different.

My first appointment: 1- Consultation with doctor about my history and my husband’s history 2- Blood drawn 3- Transvagial ultrasound 4- Met with doctor again to discuss ultrasound findings and set a plan for next steps. My doctor knew from my history and ultrasounds that I had PCOS, so he gave me an Rx for Provera that day, and I started Clomid my next cycle. It varies, depending on your history and what they can see on that first visit. Many women have to wait for bloodwork to come back to see what’s going on, so don’t be disappointed if you don’t get something on that first appointment. You should definitely walk out of there with a clear idea of what you’re going to try, and when. For example, if blood shows x, then we’ll do y. If it shows a, then you’ll have test b. Also, after first round of Clomid I had an HSG test. Good luck.
