Monash Health Fertility is committed to the provision of safe, evidence-based, high-value management and treatment options for those who would like to grow their family but have been unable to become pregnant, or, who have medical conditions that reduce their fertility.

The fertility journey

The tests, therapies and treatments given as part of the fertility journey vary between individuals and couples. A fertility specialist will consult with each patient to design a management plan tailored to each person’s needs.


The GP or gynaecologist refer the individual or couple:

1. To Monash Health Fertility
2. For preliminary tests such as a blood test, pelvic ultrasound or semen analysis

Patients are advised not to undertake preliminary tests until contacted by Monash Health Fertility who coordinate all appointments.


Monash Health Fertility contacts prospective patient/s to book their initial appointment with the fertility doctor and arrange other preliminary tests such as ultrasound or blood tests.


The Fertility Specialist assesses the patient and may refer for further diagnostic medical tests.

The Fertility Specialist then develops a management plan tailored to the patient/s needs.


The clinical team delivers fertility services in line with the management plan. This may involve IVF/ICSI or a non-IVF approach, with nurse, counsellor, dietician or other consultation as appropriate.


If a pregnancy results, the patient will be discharged from Monash Health Fertility and transitioned to a maternity care program.

If a pregnancy does not result, further treatment options can be discussed with the Fertility Specialist.
