How Fertility Clinics Can Be More Convenient For You

Convenient_Fertility_ClinicWhen you’re planning for fertility treatment, there are so many things on your mind. First and foremost you’ve got big dreams and major excitement about becoming a parent—and anxiety about whether or not that will happen. But once you start treatment, those thoughts tend to be pushed aside by a lot of day-to-day logistics and details: there are appointments to be scheduled, tests to be taken, and treatment decisions to be made in consultation with your fertility specialists.

Choosing a Fertility Clinic

Convenience may not be the first thing you consider when evaluating a fertility clinic, but it should be near the top of the list. Because finding a fertility clinic that does everything it can to be convenient for you considerably reduces the stress of fertility treatment so you can focus on the things that truly matter.

Here are some of the different ways that fertility clinics can make the experience more convenient for you.

Location

Find a fertility clinic that offers several locations. This allows you to schedule appointments on your time, as the likelihood of a clinic being near your home or work increases with the more offices that the clinic has. Going to a fertility clinic that is near you helps remove some of the stress of the situation, as it is one less thing to worry about.

Also, some infertility treatments may require multiple visits, so finding a clinic that is convenient for you is important.

Multiple Treatments Offered

If your clinic is unable to provide you with the specific types of fertility treatments needed to address your issues, that can mean starting over with a new provider and further delay your dreams of having a child. For example, some clinics may start you down a treatment path that can be done at the clinic, but later realize that they will need to refer you to an outside source for further help.

This can prove to be frustrating because, as mentioned above, some treatments can require multiple visits. By the time you realize you need a new provider, you’ve already invested considerable time in the process, and now you’ll need to add time to travel to and see another provider to get the treatments that you need.

The right fertility clinic for you should offer a variety of treatment options, including:

In the scenario where you require additional procedures that cannot be completed in a fertility clinic setting, the clinic should be aligned with a network of partners that they can refer you to if needed so that you don’t have to spend time researching.

Communication

An all-too-common situation is when patients meet with their fertility specialist and end up leaving unsure about what just happened. When you are about to begin an IVF treatment plan, your doctor should take the time to go over everything, speak in terms that you understand, and ensure everything he or she has said is clear to you.

When it comes to infertility, clinics and their staff should do everything they can to help you get the treatment that you need, and communicating effectively is an important part of that.

Language barriers can also cause problems when fertility clinic staff are not able to communicate complicated issues in your first language. You can make sure you’re all of your questions answered accurately by working with highly-trained fertility specialists who are fluent in multiple languages.

Working with a clinic that is convenient for you is important, because dealing with infertility is stressful enough without additional, unnecessary complications. To see a board-certified fertility specialist who is qualified to determine and provide the treatment for you, make an appointment at one of InVia's four Chicago area fertility clinics.
