Starting a fertility treatment at california fertility partners

    Hi ladies!

    I most probably need a fertility treatment since I’ve been trying for over a year without results. I’m interested in this clinic. Can someone tell me what to expect? I already scheduled an appointment. Do I need to bring something? Medical history, etc?

  2. Hello Felicia,

    During the first visit an exhaustive case history will be carried out, as well as all the tests needed for diagnosing the problem and choosing the proper treatment.

    During the first part of this visit, the case history will be analyzed. All the medical records of the couple, related to previous or current fertility treatments, or treatments unrelated to that, surgical interventions, family history, and hereditary diseases, etc., will be written down. If the patients have any medical reports it would be interesting to bring them to this first visit, so that the case history is as complete as possible and enables the specialist to reach a proper diagnosis.

    After that, a gynecological examination will be performed and from that moment on, the doctor will determine other tests that need to be carried out before making up his mind about the treatment or actions needed to take, in order to achieve pregnancy. If the couple brings the results of some tests that have already been performed and if they are still valid, they won’t be done again. For more information about what happens at your first clinic visit, have a look at this post: First visit to the fertility clinic.
    Hope this helps you,

    wish you all the best for your first appointment.

    • Hi Romina,

      thank you, this information was really useful. Do you think it would also be recommendable to visit another fertility center?

    • Hello Felicia,

      it is indeed highly recommended to visit at least two or three fertility centers in order to compare your impression of each of them and make the best decision for you. Feeling comfortable at your fertility clinic is key- a fertility treatment is already physically and mentally exhausting so avoid any additional stress factors.

      In order to obtain more information about fertility centers in your area I recommend you have a look at our Clinic directory of fertility centers in California.

      Good luck!

  3. Hi Felicia!!

    I had to bring my medical history for the first appointment. If you have a partner, it’s also highly recommended to bring him with you. You both will get some tests done in order to find out your fertility issues. In my case it was my poor husband with sterility problems as he sufferes from moderate oligozoospermia, so we needed an IVF.

  4. Hi Melly!

    thanks for responding. How did it go? Were you successful?

    06/28/2019 at 1:00 pm
    • yep, we were successful at our first IVF. However, I also know couples that weren’t successful until their 3rd or 4th intent. It depends on lots of factors and it’s also always a little bit of luck 😉

  5. Hi!

    We are a gay couple and looking for fertility clinics who offer surrogacy. Anyone here experience with California Fertility Partners in this regard? We are also considering other clinics and we have no problem in traveling to a different state.

    • Hi Julien,

      my husband and I resorted to surrogacy as our last option. We were at California Fertility Partners and we absolutely recommend it! They work with a surrogacy agency and perform a strict screening for a suitable surrogate. We got to meet her and we got along so well. Everything went so smoothly. We were lucky to have been able to get a positive embryo transfer at the first cycle thanks to her. We still maintain contact.

    • Thank you so much for your insight. May I ask how much this process will cost us? How about bureaucracy? Which documents and steps are involved after childbirth?

    • Hi Julien,

      thanks to favorable legislation, most U.S. states allow surrogacy procedures. However, keep in mind that the requirements differ from state to state. Since you’re interested in a Californian surrogacy, this place is considered a pre-birth order state. This means that this order is issued prior to birth by the court in which you will be declared a legal parent. However, this document is not effective until birth occurs, but is intended to offer some peace of mind.

      If you want to know how the legislation looks like in every U.S. state, I recommend you have a look at this post: Surrogacy in the USA – Is It Legal in All 50 States?

      Since you are interested in California Fertility Partners, I invite you to have a look at their clinic profile here: Analysis of California Fertility Partners.

      For a general overview of fertility clinics throughout the U.S. I suggest you have a look at our clinic directory. There you will find useful information about services provided, costs, reviews and much more.

      Hope this helps,

      all the best.
