Treatment Prerequisites

Only a few treatment, FDA, and the State of California required prerequisites are needed, and you can complete them within a very short period of time.


The treatment prerequisites are needed to make sure that normal quality eggs can be produced by the ovaries (antral follicle count and Ovarian Reserve Assay), and that embryos can be accurately placed in a healthy uterus (measurement of the uterus and sonohysterogram). Unless you will be using frozen semen from a sperm bank, we will also need to examine your semen sample.

The FDA, and the State of California prerequisites are required to screen for the presence of blood-borne pathogens.

If you have already completed some of the required prerequisites, they may not need to be repeated.

If you live outside of the San Francisco Bay Area, please see Out of Area Patients for additional important information.
