What to Expect When Traveling to Dominion Fertility for Care
Initial Phone Consultation
At the time of your appointment, you will receive a phone call from our office. Your initial phone consultation with the doctor will last approximately 30 minutes. If you require more time with the doctor, we will be happy to schedule follow-up consultations.
After your initial phone consultation, we will schedule a one-day medical evaluation in our office. The scheduling of your medical evaluation will depend upon the timing of your menstrual cycles. This will be the first appointment where you will be traveling to us.
Your medical evaluation will include several tests, which might include a sonogram, cervical cultures, an HSG, and a mock embryo transfer.
If you are part of a female/male couple, the male partner might want to consider having his sperm collected and cryopreserved at this time. If a sample is frozen, the male partner will not necessarily need to return to our clinic when the IVF procedure is performed. If this is an option you would like to consider, the male partner must have STD testing completed and sent to our office before arriving for the medical evaluation. We will not be able to do the collection and cryopreservation without STD testing.
Depending on your treatment plan, additional consultations with our nurses, our billing department, or a psychologist may be necessary.
When arranging for your visit to our office, our nurses will inform you if additional testing or consultations will be necessary.
Out-of Town Patients FAQ
After your initial visit to Dominion Fertility for your medical evaluation, your treatment cycle will likely take place within 2 months. You will need to travel to Dominion Fertility for your final sonograms prior to your egg retrieval and embryo transfer. This process lasts about 7–10 days. When you are medically released to leave, usually 24 hours after the procedure, you may travel back to your home.
Yes, though we do not recommend it. Our cutting-edge laboratory is part of what makes Dominion Fertility great. Choosing to do your testing with us helps ensure accurate and timely results. If you choose to do some of your testing elsewhere, we are willing to work with various clinics for certain parts of your medical evaluation, but we cannot take responsibility for mistakes in testing or in the transmission of test results to our office. Additionally, all prescribed tests must be performed within three months of initial consultation with the exception of the HSG.
