If you have any concerns about your reproductive health or fertility and want to talk about your options, our friendly and experienced team at Orchid Fertility are here to help. Even if you are not ready to embark on fertility treatment being aware of your choices can be of great help. We intend to fully support you a much as possible helping you to make informed decisions about your fertility journey.

What are the first steps to take?

If you have been unsuccessfully trying for a baby, the very first step, and maybe the hardest to take, is to book a consultation with one of our Infertility Specialists.  Remember that you are not alone; infertility can affect as many as one in six couples of reproductive age and the pathway to pregnancy is very clearly set out.  Whether you are concerned about your fertility or looking for some expert guidance, we will do our best to help you find the right path for you.

The Consultation

The first consultation is absolutely necessary before any treatment begins. When you meet one of our fertility specialists, your medical history will be discussed in full and all your questions concerning fertility will be answered. You will receive a lot of information during your consultation and therefore, take notes, ask questions, and remember that it is always okay for you to call or email us with any follow-up questions you may have.  During the initial consultation, blood tests will be taken to determine your hormone balances and a pelvic ultrasound will be given, along with a semen analysis for the husband.

Once your tests are completed, your consultant will suggest an individual personalised treatment plan based on your results.

Your consultation is in complete confidence and you can be assured that your privacy and integrity will be protected at all times.


Next Steps

After you and your husband have undergone a physical examination and testing, your fertility specialist will organise a second consultation with you both to recommend a bespoke fertility treatment plan to help you conceive.

Depending on the test results and before you and your partner start any fertility treatment, your Fertility Specialist will discuss the likelihood of success together with any associated risks. At Orchid Fertility, we recognise the importance of providing both quality physical and emotional care during your treatment and our patient’s will have access to our fertility counselling service which is included in your initial consultation and is available at any time during the remainder of your treatment with us.
