This first step is to make an appointment to evaluate your particular case, and remember you’re not alone.  In the first consultation you can come alone or with your partner.  You will be attended to by an OB/GYN – specialist in reproductive medicine, where you will receive an assessment of the overall status of your case.  They will explain the operations of the center, next steps and answer general questions about how to start the processes. Your medical history, past exams and important partner data is recorded. The diagnosis will indicate whether any further examination is required, or they will proceed to explain the type of treatment indicated in your case.  Each case is different, and has an individualized response depending on the needs. Remember that each procedure is performed under strict confidentiality and the amount of time needed for treatment will depend on each individual case.
