We’ve had quite the number of people in our Facebook group ask what happens at your first appointment at the fertility clinic, and rightly so.

What the heck DOES happen at this first appointment?

Well, the short answer is that they ask you a tonne of questions and send you for a tonne of tests.

The first appointment is all about starting to investigate what could be wrong. For some, who already know they have some issues, they may move straight to treatment of some sort, but they will usually test both parties, because often it can be more than one factor.

Possible tests include:

  • Tracking cycle
  • STD check
  • Genetic test
  • Sperm test
  • Physical test (for both parties)
