How can you use this guide?

Use the guide as a checklist. Your clinic may be good at keeping you well informed, but it’s nice to have some general questions on hand before your meeting with the clinic. It’s a long list with a lot of questions, so keep in mind that not all of the questions will be relevant for you.

Get a good overview of your type of treatment

  • Which type of treatment am I/we offered and why?
  • What are my chances of getting pregnant?
  • How many rounds of treatment do we have?
  • What will be the next step if I/we are unsuccessful in our current treatment?

Questions about time (because waiting can be tough)

  • How long before I/we start treatment?
  • Do we contact you or do you contact us?

Questions about the treatment

  • What is the process? Step for step explanation
  • Do I need hormone treatment?
  • Does egg retrieval hurt?
  • Does insemination hurt?
  • Will I be sedated during the treatment?
  • When do we provide a semen sample?
  • Do we provide the semen sample at home or at the clinic?
  • What side effects and risks are connected to the treatment?

Questions about the medicine

  • What medicine will I be taking?
  • How and when do I take the medicine?
  • Will I be provided with the medicine at the clinic or do I need to pick it up at the pharmacy?
  • Do I need to store the medicine in a particular way?
  • What does the medicine cost (and what should we be expecting regarding expenses in general?)
  • What are the side effects to the different types of medication?
  • If you’re taking other types of medication, it may be a good idea to ask if you can take the different types of medicine at the same time

Questions about the time after being in treatment

  • Can I go to work after being in treatment?
  • How long do we need to wait to have sex?
  • Can I do sports after being in treatment? Is there anything I shouldn’t do?
  • When can we take a pregnancy test?
  • How are the risks of having an abortion?
  • When is our next appointment with the clinic?
  • What should we do if I start to bleed?
  • When can we start the next round if we don’t get pregnant this time?
