How to Prepare for First Fertility Appointment?   

Scheduling your first fertility appointment at NewLife Fertility can bring up many emotions. Many people want their first appointment to be as productive and successful as possible. One way to ensure you get the most out of your appointment is to do a little preparation. Your fertility specialist will help you navigate your first appointment and every appointment after. 

Below are some ways patients around Mobile, Alabama; Dothan, Alabama; Biloxi, Mississippi; Destin Florida; Tallahassee, Florida; Panama City, Florida; and Pensacola, Florida, can prepare for their first fertility appointment. 

Compile Your Medical Records 

Your medical records and family history are an essential part of the fertility process. These records tell your fertility specialist about your history, including any conditions you may have that can affect your fertility. You can contact your primary care doctor to request your medical records be sent to your fertility specialist. This will likely include the current medications you are taking. 

Family history can also hint at genetic conditions that could affect fertility or your future child. If you’re unsure of your family medical history, speak to your family members before the appointment. 

After you submit a new patient form on our website, you will receive instructions via email for providing us with this information before your appointment. Please be aware that in an effort to make your first appointment as productive as possible, you will not be able to schedule a new patient consultation until after this information is provided.  

Put Together Some Questions to Ask Your Fertility Specialist 

Lots of people have questions about the fertility process. If you or your partner have any questions, take some time before your first appointment to write them down. Then, bring that page with you to your appointment. You can use this page to guide any questions you have during your appointment so you get all the information you need to move forward. Common questions people ask during their first appointment include: 

  • What types of treatments does this fertility center offer? 
  • What is the general timeline of our fertility journey? 
  • Are there some lifestyle changes I should make? 
  • How do you decide what treatments are right for me or my partner? 
  • How much are treatment costs? 

Your fertility specialist is here to provide you with the knowledge and support you need for your fertility journey. Some people choose to bring a notebook with them to their appointments in order to write down important details. This can help you remember key information later if you’re feeling overwhelmed during your appointment. 

Seek Support From Your Friends or Partner 

The fertility process brings up a lot of emotions. Emotional and physical support from your friends and partner can make the process easier. You are welcome to bring a friend or family member to your appointment if you are exploring your fertility options as a single parent. 

Partners are encouraged to attend the first fertility appointment together. You and your partner can emotionally support each other on this journey, during and outside of appointments. They may even be able to help you answer questions about your fertility history. If they have questions about the fertility process, they can ask and be present for the answers.
