Pre-pregnancy planning and consultation
Seeking fertility advice can be both daunting and exciting.Pregnancy consultation and planning is an opportunity to maximise the possibility of natural conception. Specialist consultation prior to embarking on pregnancy is intended to identify and modify any medical, social and genetic factors that may potentially effect a a future pregnancy.
Not all couples who are trying to conceive need assisted reproductive technology (ART) to manage their fertility. Anju will assist you with the necessary investigations required for you and your partner.
Sometimes assistance is required in the form of medications and cycle monitoring which can be managed from our consulting rooms, such as ovulation induction with follicle tracking for women with ovulatory disorders.
Some women may require surgical assistance, such as a laparoscopy, to help with conception. ART is usually offered when all conservative options are exhausted.
Assisted Reproductive Technology (IUI/IVF)
There are a wide range of assisted reproductive technologies (ART) available and Anju works with each couple to create a unique fertility plan that is best suited to them. Sometimes IVF with embryo testing is electively undertaken when a woman is advanced in age.
Information for you
Initial consultations can take up to 60 minutes. Your partner is encouraged to attend this appointment. Anju will take a thorough history, perform a gynaecological examination (if indicated) and review any investigations already performed. More investigation may be ordered if required. Further appointments may then be organised to discuss results and plan treatment as necessary.
