More and more fertility clinics are now holding open evenings for prospective patients which can be a really good opportunity to find out more about the options for treatment. Some even offer mini consultations with a fertility specialist to discuss your individual situation and what might be best for you.
It’s worth going along to as many of these as you can to get a feel for what would suit you. Open evenings are a great source of information and will help you to understand the types of treatment on offer. Remember that going to an open evening doesn’t mean you are committed to having treatment at any particular clinic. Success rates and cost of treatment are important factors when you are choosing a fertility clinic, but atmosphere is important too – if you feel comfortable in an environment and like the staff, it is going to make treatment easier.
