A fertility assessment helps the doctors understand your overall health, and learn about any prior or current issues that may be inhibiting your ability to become pregnant. This assessment will include a detailed medical history for yourself and partner (if applicable), potentially a physical exam if necessary. You may then be asked to complete blood work and an ultrasound. If you have a partner with sperm, a semen analysis may be recommended.
Some examples of fertility treatment options are:
Since the fertility treatment depends on the underlying cause(s), we will work with you to determine which options may work best for your individual situation. Our goal is to help educate and empower you to make the best decisions for your fertility care. We work with fertility clinics throughout the GTA and will help expedite referrals for IVF/IUI, elective egg freezing, donor egg/sperm, and fertility preservation prior to gender-confirming surgery.
If you’d like to have a fertility assessment, please have your family physician fax a referral to Open Arms OB/GYN
