Infertility

UC San Diego Health provides initial evaluations, preconception counseling, diagnostic testing and a range of individualized treatment options for couples having difficulty conceiving. 

Initial Appointment

A first visit is an important time to hear about your fertility journey and your goals and wishes. The visit usually also includes:

  • Ultrasound examination to detect abnormalities that could be affecting fertility and to determine further testing required
  • Preliminary conversation about possible treatment options

A treatment plan will be decided after any needed testing is completed, and will be based on your wishes and test results. (See Infertility FAQ for more information about treatment.)
