At Fertility Bristol, we know that coming to a fertility clinic for the first time can be daunting so we’ve put together the following information so you know what to expect.

During your first consultation, you will meet your consultant, Valentine Akande – a gynaecologist and fertility specialist with an outstanding international reputation and decades of experience. Your appointment could alternatively be with another of our highly experienced fertility specialists.

Your full medical history will be taken and will cover family history, reproductive, menstrual history and lifestyle.

The results and implication of any tests will be discussed. Usually, a pelvic ultrasound scan is performed during the first consultation to provide insight into the health of your uterus and ovaries.

Further investigation may be needed to reach a diagnosis and this will be discussed if necessary.

Our assessment will determine what advice or treatment we offer you as appropriate and will be tailored to your particular situation.

Your first consultation is also an opportunity to ask any questions you may have and to discuss any concerns.
