Before you start your treatment, the nurses will explain how to follow the medication protocol and how/when to take the tests the doctor subscribed. They assist the doctor during your sonograms, the oocyte retrieval and the embryo transfer. They are there for you when you need to ask something or when you need help and they keep you updated about the course of the treatment (results of your tests, if you need to change your medication dosage etc). They also help you out with all the paperwork for the insurance companies. They all work together as a team and their goal is to support you during your treatment.
All our nurses are there for you to help you go through the fertility treatments in the most comfortable and stress-free way. You will find their practical advice very helpful and you will feel their support in case you meet any difficulties during the treatment.
