Whether you’ve had investigations previously done or you’re starting from scratch the first fertility consultation is your starting point.
We will review what you have done already, explain the fertility investigation process and make a plan for you.
For most people the journey stops here as they just need a bit of reassurance and we will be able to investigate if everything is working as it should be.
For other patients this might be the starting point towards getting some help to speed up the process or starting fertility treatment if needed.
Whatever plan we make you can dictate how far you want to go and at which speed you need to proceed. Your first consultation will include a consultation with a Gynecologist, a chlamydia test and full pelvic ultrasound. After this appointment you can arrange your blood tests if needed and sperm analysis.
First Consultation €200
General fertility bloods if needed €40
Sperm analysis €120
