An online referral form is to be submitted for all participants in the fertility journey, with the reason for referral clearly indicated as well as relevant clinical information.
Referral is also to be made to for preliminary radiology, pathology and andrology tests as appropriate. Further details are provided via Healthlink (see referral link below) and the referral guideline documents.
Patients will be notified via email upon receipt of the e-referral and their placement on a service waitlist. As appointments become available, Monash Health Fertility will contact patients to arrange their initial visit. Patients should not undertake preliminary tests until contacted by Monash Health Fertility who will assist in appointment coordination.
Please select the appropriate pathology template for all participants in the fertility journey.
Please note: AMH has been deliberately omitted from these templates as Monash Health Fertility will fund this test for females just before their consultation with our Clinician.
Female primary patients (egg source and/or intending pregnancy) will also require a referral for a Gynaecological Ultrasound.
Male partners (intended sperm source) will require a referral for a Semen Analysis + Anti-Sperm Antibodies.
For donor and surrogacy arrangements, please email MHFadmin@monashhealth.org for guidance on the diagnostic tests required for each participant.
