Booking a fertility consultation

Perhaps you’ve just stumbled across our website and are interested in learning more about how the whole sperm testing and freezing process works — it may even be the first time you’ve ever thought about freezing your sperm. Or perhaps you’ve spent hours poring over our resource hub and digging deeper into learning about the difference between a semen analysis and a sperm DNA fragmentation analysis. Regardless of where you are in your journey, our fertility advisors are here to help. 

Who should book an appointment with a fertility advisor?

When you are in the discovery phase, you may naturally have a lot of questions. Our resource guides can get you up to speed pretty quickly, but online articles can never replace the experience of speaking to a trusted advisor. Fertility consultations are a great resource for those who prefer to engage with learning about sperm testing and freezing in a live format.  

On the other end of the spectrum, even after having completed a lot of independent research, questions can still remain. Fertility consultations can provide a dedicated space for those who want to talk about their individual situations and have their questions answered. Meeting with a fertility advisor can offer the opportunity to go deeper into topics you are curious about while putting potential fears and concerns to rest. 

Why book a fertility consultation?

Speaking with a fertility advisor can offer a lot of emotional support for individuals throughout the process of trying to conceive. When it comes to talking about fertility — a deeply personal topic — some people may feel anxious or scared. 

By booking a fertility consultation, you have the opportunity to build rapport with a trusted advisor, talk through the nuances of your situation, connect with someone who can address any concerns you may have, and receive personalized recommendations on the best sperm testing and freezing options for you. 

How to book an appointment

Booking a free fertility consultation is quick and easy. In the header of Legacy’s website, hover over the “Support” menu in the top right corner. From there, you can select the option to “Schedule a call” under the “Contact” header. This will open a Calendly link where you can find a time that works best for you. To book a time, you’ll need to provide your name, a phone number, and any information the fertility advisor should know to prepare for the appointment. Make sure you hit “Schedule event” to book the consultation and receive an email confirmation with a calendar invite.   

Preparing for your appointment

So now you’ve booked your fertility consultation, what comes next? Read up about what you can expect at your appointment and how to best prepare so you get the most out of your time with your fertility advisor. 

What to expect

During your fertility consultation, your advisor will conduct a needs analysis to better understand your situation and develop personalized recommendations. You should come prepared to talk about your fertility goals, any medical considerations, and your ideal timeline to parenthood. Next, you’ll have the chance to ask any questions you may have about the sperm testing and sperm freezing. Take advantage of this time to ask questions that will help you understand what options would make the most sense for you. Finally, at the end of the consultation, our fertility advisors can help you purchase a kit, if you choose, based on your unique situation and goals. 

Questions to ask at the consultation

Each appointment lasts approximately 15 minutes. To get the most out of your time, consider getting a list of questions written down before your fertility consultation to ensure you don’t forget anything and get all your questions answered. Some common questions our fertility advisors can talk through with you include:

  • How many vials of sperm should I freeze?
  • What are the benefits of storing more vials?
  • Which sperm freezing and/or testing options would be best for me given the number of children I would like to have in the future?
  • How can my relationship situation play into my decision to test or freeze my sperm?
  • When is the best time for me to test or freeze my sperm given my circumstances?
  • Is there a timeline for testing and freezing my sperm?
  • Should I get an STI test before sperm freezing, and if so, when?

Please note, this is not a call with a medical provider, and as a result, our fertility advisors will not be able to answer medical questions that pertain to specific medical cases, such as oncology treatments and hormone replacement therapy. 

Discover a personalized experience

Our fertility advisors are here to help you have the best possible experience with sperm testing and freezing. They can help you discover your fertility goals while serving as a sympathetic and compassionate ally on your fertility journey. Talking about fertility (and potential infertility) can be scary. Booking a free fertility consultation offers a dedicated space and time for you to talk about your concerns. Our advisors are here to eliminate your fears and any ambiguity around the planning process.
