Before Your First Visit

Please review our Fertility History Form prior to your first visit. This will help you prepare for our meeting.

We use a 3-step process that lays the foundation for your diagnosis and treatment plan.

1) Healthy Lifestyle

Make sure you’re both doing everything you can to have the kind of healthy lifestyle that maximizes your fertility and your chances for conception. Click here for a quick checklist of habits for a healthy fertile lifestyle that are known to have a positive impact on fertility, and a few things you’ll want to avoid.

2) Preconception Care

Women should take 0.4 mg of folic acid daily while trying to conceive and during the first trimester of pregnancy. Women with epilepsy or who have had an infant with a neural tube defect should increase this dose to 4 mg daily.

3) Tracking Your Periods

It is important for us to have a detailed record of your last 3-6 periods prior to your first visit. We need to know:
  • The date each period started
  • How many days there were between the first days of each period
