Fertility Appointments - Your First & Follow-Ups

Get the greatest benefit from your appointments with fertility services and reproductive health specialists at OU Health in Oklahoma City by preparing your questions, completing required forms and bringing all documents, as well as your partner, a loved one, friend or support person with you.

Team-Based Approach to Care

At OU Health, you benefit from our hands-on, team-based, problem-solving approach that involves your primary doctor, fertility physicians, laboratory specialists and skilled nurses in delivering the comprehensive services that ensure you receive top-quality care for your particular situation.

Throughout your fertility and reproductive health journey with OU Health, your expert team members manage your individualized treatment plan, perform ultrasound tests, take bloodwork and use assisted reproductive technologies such as in vitro fertilization (IVF).

Before each visit, all appropriate healthcare providers and clinical staff on your team review related charts and treatment plans to stay current on the personalized, compassionate care you require.

Your First Appointment

For support and help with your questions, bring your partner or a friend or loved one with you to your first appointment. If you’re part of a couple experiencing infertility, bringing your partner to the first appointment can help both of you. If you’re attempting to get pregnant as a single person, a trusted friend or loved one can offer valuable support. Also:

  • Bring your list of questions and continue to educate yourself about fertility treatments, procedures and options
  • Review your insurance plan and visit with your insurance carrier or agent to understand your coverages, if any, for fertility services; before your first appointment, contact our financial department at (405) 271-1616

Request & Bring Medical Records from Previous Providers

For previous fertility-related testing or medical procedures from other physicians, bring all records to your first appointment at OU Health or have your records faxed or sent to our office before you arrive. The more information you provide, the better medical evaluation you’ll receive.

To comply with privacy regulations, you must request these records yourself from your other doctors. Begin your requests for information as soon as possible before your appointment to avoid delays in processing. Records might include:

  • Blood test and hormone test results
  • Cycle Day Three tests, FSH results, Estradiol levels
  • Cycle day and medication history
  • IUI or IVF cycle records or ovulation induction records
  • Pap test and cervical culture test results (most recent)
  • Radiology results, including HSG films on CD-ROM or in a printed report
  • Semen analysis results

What to Expect at Your Follow-Up Visits

You may return to our OU Health clinic for additional testing or treatment in a tightly scheduled program that respects your time and minimizes delays. We will do our best to inform you of any extended wait time.

Early morning appointments and our full-service onsite laboratory mean you often receive same-day results in an afternoon phone call from one of our clinical staff members. In addition, you receive bloodwork and ultrasound services and hands-on case management directly from our OU Health reproductive endocrinologists, providers and nurses who also provide compassionate care through every step of your personalized treatment program.
