Out-of-town and International Patients


Patients Monitoring Outside of Life IVF Center

Please complete the pre-IVF requirements and send us the results; without these results, we will not be able to perform any procedure. If you have any question or concerns regarding completing our pre-IVF requirement, please contact our office for assistance. Similarly, you and your partner must complete all consent forms. You may contact our front desk to send you a set of consent forms. Please read thoroughly, sign, date, and send them to us via fax or e-mail.

Next, find a local monitoring facility. Just like those patients who monitor at Life IVF Center, you will be asked to take blood test and ultrasound during the cycle. For the blood test, please find a facility that can run these hormone tests as STAT order (same day result). Most facilities can run these tests, but not all of them are able to run them as STAT. Please verify with your facility as early as possible. For ultrasound, please find a facility that can perform trans-vaginal ultrasounds. We will need them to provide us the follicle count, sizes, and endometrium lining measurement. Please also locate a local pharmacy so we can order most of your oral medication, and a specialty pharmacy of choice so we may order your fertility medications. Please provide us with the phone number and fax number to these pharmacies.

Give us a call on your CD1 so the nurse can send the lab order sheet to you via e-mail (You will need to install Adobe to download the PDF document). Please print out the order form and take it to your facility for CD2 or 3 baseline monitoring. Please try to do your monitoring test as early in the day as possible. We need to receive your results before 4:00 PM California time for the doctor to review it on the same day. Finally, please patiently wait for your treatment plan, it will be sent via E-mail at the end of our clinic business day.
