The First Visit Procedure

During the first visit, the doctor conducts a precise medical interview with both partners, analyses their medical history and any medical records provided. Gynecological tests and an ultrasound are also performed.

If it is necessary, the patient will undergo further tests which can be performed directly at the clinic. After the test results are available, the doctor consults the couple, often the same day, to establish the subsequent plan of treatment. If it is medically possible, the couple can directly qualify for the insemination or in vitro procedures.
