What to Expect from Your Fertility Consult

You booked your Dandi Fertility Consultation, but what now? We understand that this can feel overwhelming and our team is here to support you and guide your expectations. Here is what you can anticipate during your consultation and how you can best prepare…

What to Expect

  • Personalized Attention: Your Dandi nurse will take the time to understand your unique fertility goals and history. Whether you're exploring fertility options, seeking to preserve fertility, or actively trying to conceive, we tailor our approach to meet your specific needs.
  • Comprehensive Discussion: During your consultation, we may cover a range of topics, including interpreting test results, procedure overviews, genetics education, and guidance for those who are already pregnant. No question is too small, and we're here to address all your concerns with warmth and expertise.
  • Guidance and Support: If this is your first step on your fertility journey, our team can assist you in finding the right provider or clinic. We'll walk you through the typical fertility work-up and help you understand what to expect during your clinical care appointments.
  • Review of Treatment Plans: For those who already have a clinical care team, your Dandi nurse will review your proposed treatment plan or protocol step by step. We'll ensure you have a clear understanding of your path forward and provide support as you navigate your fertility journey.

Tips to Prepare

Preparing for your fertility consultation can help ensure a productive and informative session. Here are a few tips to consider:

  • Gather Medical Records: Bring any relevant medical records, including previous fertility tests or treatments, to your consultation. This information will help our team better understand your fertility history and guide our discussion.
  • Write Down Questions: Take some time to jot down any questions or concerns you may have before your session. This will help ensure that nothing is overlooked during your consultation.
  • Bring a Support Person: You may find it helpful to bring a trusted friend or family member to your consultation for emotional support and an extra set of ears.
  • Stay Open-Minded: Keep an open mind and be prepared to explore different options and treatment plans. Our team is here to provide guidance and support as you make decisions about your fertility journey.

At Dandi, we're committed to providing compassionate care and support to individuals and couples on their fertility journey. Your consultation is a step toward understanding your options and taking control of your fertility. We look forward to supporting you, wherever you need us.
