Before starting any kind of fertility treatment, there are a range of requirements that must be met to safely and securely begin. In this phase, you’ll work with our New Patient team to ensure everything is completed, up-to-date, and properly logged.

What’s Pre-IVF?

Before you’re ready for treatment, Pre-IVF is your first critical step!
Pre-IVF is the phase of completing documents and tests to get you ready for treatment

We’ll need some additional documents and medical records to review in order to better understand your case and medical history

There’s tough decisions to make with treatment: what to do with eggs or embryos if something happens, whether to test for certain diseases

Select Pre-IVF items we strongly recommend you complete here

Infectious Disease (ID) Panel

FDA-required blood panels to test both partners for certain infectious diseases and guide treatment:

Female: $750 | Male: $550
Sperm Count

Pre-IVF estimate of sperm concentration and quality and to ensure viability for fertilization

Pap Smear

Test for HPV, pre-cancerous cells, and cervical cancer that would affect treatment


Other Pre-IVF Items

These are additional items to complete prior to IVF Treatment depending on patient concerns, previous medical history, and individual / family risk factors

Pre-Embryo Transfer Tests

These tests are also important but may be performed later – if doing, they must be completed before the Embryo Transfer cycle but may be done after Egg Retrieval; however, many do them earlier for convenience

Submitting Medical Records

Aside from the required testing, another part of Pre-IVF is ensuring the Life IVF team has a complete picture of your medical history, which may include submitting records of services performed elsewhere.
