In Vitro Fertilization brings hope and promise, but along with this can come a lot of unfamiliar fertility language and many complex procedures. That’s why, at The Center for Reproductive Medicine, we go out of our way to ensure that you have the education and understanding you need not only to make informed decisions but to feel comfortable in the steps you do decide to take – all in a pressure-free environment.
At our New Patient Orientation, those new to IVF and their partners are invited to a day-long group session along with other patients at a similar stage in treatment. Topics – which run the gamut from emotional considerations to tracking the actual stages of embryo development – include:
- What is IVF?
- How does IVF work?
- What to expect during IVF treatment.
- How to prepare for IVF treatment.
- Health and wellness recommendations (pre- and post-treatment).
- IVF treatment timelines.
- What to expect at each appointment.
- Keeping track of fertility medications.
- Stress management, and more.
In addition, a Registered Nurse is there to guide you through different fertility medications, how to administer individual fertility medications, general injection instructions, and answer any questions you may have in regards to your fertility treatment plan.
