6 Questions To Ask During Your First IVF Consultation

Women who go to consultation for IVF treatment are likely undergoing it for the first time. That’s why we make sure to keep you educated and aware of our treatments to keep the risk of making mistakes or becoming overwhelmed as small as possible. If you’re new to IVF treatments, here are the most important questions you can ask us, your local IVF clinic in Davao City.


“What would you like me to know?”

Before you ask any further questions, let your doctor finish. Doctors usually have a structured discussion ready — making sure he or she is covering all the things you have to know. From there, you can personally come up with your own questions.


“What is the success rate for patients like me?”

There are a lot of factors that affect the success rates like age, lifestyle, and diet of the patient. To answer this question, expect the doctor to ask about your lifestyle, age, habits, and relevant events during your earlier periods in life.


“What is the timeline for my treatment?”

A lot of women may assume that every treatment is the same. However, depending on your lifestyle, habits, and age, your treatment can be longer or shorter than others. IVF treatment varies from case to case. Yes, it’s normal to have a longer treatment than other women.


“Is your staff prompt in responding to questions and updates?”

This is not exactly a question, but rather a reminder for them to keep updating you with important information. This also opens up to a question regarding possible communication channels and possible dates when they can regularly update you.


“Are you flexible with appointments?”

A lot of women may have difficulty getting out of work. If you consider yourself to be one of these women, then asking if their availability in the evening or weekend is relevant.


“What are the medications needed for me and/or my partner?”

Asking about the treatments can help you explain to your partner the actual diagnostic process of IVF treatment for the both of you (that is, if he’s unavailable during the first consultation). Medications and recommended habit changes that are mentioned by your doctor can also help you increase your chances of conceiving.
