What to ask your doctor before undergoing fertility treatments say the IVI Fertility IVF experts Couples who have been trying to conceive for more than a year are normally recommended to make an appointment with ​IVF specialists ​without losing any further time. Since female fertility declines at an exponential rate after the age of 35 women aged 35 or above are advised to go for a consultation six months after they start trying. Visiting a fertility expert can make couples anxious especially if they are seeking treatments of this nature for the first time. After all the fertility journey is never an easy process and can even take a toll on ones emotional health. The initial consultation normally forms a basis for the doctor to establish the medical background of the patient including family history and health problems before outlining the next course of action suitable to the case. At this juncture it is important for the couples to ask questions seek clarifications and raise concerns fears and apprehension if any. Doing so will empower the couples and help them in arriving at an informed decision. Most couples are overwhelmed during their first few visits which can easily be avoided by researching on Assisted Reproductive Technology ART and various fertility treatments prior to consultation. Listing down all the questions before going for the doctors appointment also helps. Taking small measures before a visit to the doctor may help the couple in being fully informed and confident about the further course of action. Dr. Laura Melado ​ IVF Specialist ​at IVI Middle East Fertility Clinics - a world-renowned name in the field of IVF treatments says "There are some questions that can be raised with the fertility expert to understand the situation better. These can serve as a guide and help in making the most of the first appointment."

"After reviewing the history and discussing the current condition with the patient the doctor will decide if additional tests are necessary to determine the reproductive health. If a complete gynaecological examination is recommended for instance the patient will have to undergo an ultrasound scan. She may also be given medication to boost the chances of conception coupled with recommendations to make lifestyle adjustments as part of the holistic approach. It is ideal to maintain a healthy lifestyle during the entire medical process not only to increase the chances of pregnancy but to ensure the health of the baby as well. The doctor will discuss with the patient an appropriate fertility treatment necessary medications and other additional medical exams required during the course of treatment." said Dr. Melado. ● What are the recommended treatments at the first consultation The treatment depends on the couples medical history and current circumstances. The right treatment for one could be Intrauterine Insemination IUI in which the sperm is prepared in the laboratory and then placed directly into the womans uterus to increase the chances of the sperm reaching and fertilizing the egg.

For instance a physician may recommend a surgery to females with complications arising from fibroids blocked fallopian tubes polyps and endometriosis among others. Similarly males may go through an operation to treat the condition that is hindering their capability to cause pregnancy. ● How long would it take for the fertility treatment to work The duration depends on individual conditions and circumstances. Sometimes it would only take one cycle for a pregnancy to be achieved. Others take multiple attempts before achieving a successful conception. ● Will the treatment be successful
