|To be referred|
To be seen in consultation at Conceptia Clinic, please read carefully the information shared below:
If you have a female partner, she will require a referral from her family doctor, gynecologist or a nurse practitioner.
If you have a male partner, he does not require a referral, unless he is followed by a Urologist for known infertility issues.
Male clients that are without a partner or that have a same-sex partner can contact the clinic directly to schedule an appointment.
Other important information:
Basic hormonal blood tests may be very useful for the fertility specialist if available at the time of the initial consultation. It may help him to inform you more quickly about your specific treatment options. Please refer to the consultation request form.
With same sex female couples, the result of the investigation often helps them determine which one of them is most likely to conceive. The health of the person who will carry the foetus, or baby to be born, is also one of our main priorities.
Couples wish to conceive a child together and take collaborative responsibility for that child; therefore, regardless of the sexual orientation of the couple, the screening of some sexually transmitted infections (e.g. Hepatitis B and C, HIV, etc.) for both partners is strongly recommended in order to prevent problems and complications that might affect the pregnancy itself and the health of both mother and child.
Usual wait time is four to eight weeks.
