Canadian Fertility Consultants – There are many possible reasons why our clients may have difficulty conceiving. The assessment your Dr will do will involve an evaluation of the factors that contribute to fertility:
- Quality of your sperm
- Egg Quality
- Health of fallopian tubes and uterus
- Your hormone levels
- infectious disease screening
- genetic testing
There are many fertility options available to clients, such as intrauterine insemination (IUI) or in vitro fertilization (IVF). Sometimes IUI or IVF therapies are used in conjunction with donor eggs or donor sperm. Many of our clients also consider the use of a Gestational carrier.
Many of CFC’s clients ask: When Should You See an Infertility Specialist (Reproductive Endocrinologist)?
If you are 35 years old or younger, and have attempted to become pregnant for one year or more without success.
If you are over 35 years old and have attempted to become pregnant for six months or more.
If you have had repeated losses when pregnancy has been achieved.
If you have had four or more unsuccessful cycles with Clomid.
If you are in premature menopause naturally or as a result of chemotherapy or other medical conditions.
If you have been told you will need assistance to conceive due to hysterectomy, blocked tubes, uterine damage, egg quality issues, or problems with ovulation.
If you want to have a baby after having tubal ligation or vasectomy.
If you have a family history of genetic issues, Huntington disease, Spinal Muscular Atrophy, sickle cell anemia, or cystic fibrosis.
How do we get a Referral to a Fertility clinic?
We suggest that clients speak to their family Dr about a referral to a Fertility clinic,as their family Dr will often be needed to run some of the routine tests, and then of course to care for you once you become pregnant.
Canadian Fertility Consultants also offers a Referral service. We research which clinics have had the best success in dealing with other clients, with similar fertility issues. We will then contact that clinic- whether in Canada, or the US, to book an appointment for you. During your treatment, we will be available to support you- helping you find outside monitoring facilities, pharmacies that stock some of the harder to find medications, as well as complementary therapists to support you through the treatment process.
