The initiative to seek fertility advice is an exciting one. Pre-pregnancy counselling is ideal to maximise the possibility of natural conception. The idea behind a specialist consultation prior to embarking on pregnancy is to identify and modify any medical, social and genetic factors that could have a potential adverse effect on the forthcoming pregnancy.
Delay in conception
Studies have shown that most couples achieve a pregnancy during the investigation process. If there is a delay in falling pregnant Anju will assist you with all the necessary investigations required for you and your partner. Sometimes minor assistance is required in the form of medications that can be managed easily from her consulting rooms.
Anju recognises that fertility requirements for all patients are different and she works with each couple individually to create a fertility plan best suited for them. Anju works with Monash IVF to provide complete fertility care right here in town.
Information for you
These appointments can take up to 60 minutes. You and your partner are both encouraged to attend the initial appointment. Anju will take a thorough history, perform a gynaecological examination and review all the investigations already performed. She may then order more investigations as required based on your requirement.
Further appointments may then be organised to discuss results and plan treatment including IVF if necessary.
