Prior to coming in to see us, your GP will have already arranged for you to have basic tests to check for any likely fertility problems.

During your first consultation with us, one of our doctors will review your medical and fertility history and will identify and arrange any further tests that are needed.

We can usually give you a clear evaluation of your treatment options within a couple of clinic visits.

Additional tests we might request are:

Pre-treatment screening blood tests

Screening for the following in both partners is required before treatment commences:

  • Hepatitis B
  • Hepatitis C
  • Human Immuno-deficiency Virus (HIV)

A positive result does not exclude you from receiving treatment. 

Females will also be screened to confirm whether they are immune to rubella (German measles).

If you have questions about testing for infertility, email us on fertplus@adhb.govt.nz.
