Fertility check for couples
starting point to check your fertility
Before you book a consultation with our women’s health GPs, it is good to know that ‘not trying long enough’ is one of the many reasons why nothing is happening. When you are under 35 years old and have been trying for over a year, or 35 and older and you have been trying for 6 months, we recommend making an appointment. Of course, you are very welcome to come and talk with our women’s health GPs about all fertility-related questions you may have, for example how to time intercourse.
A lot of couples with concerns about their fertility typically ring a fertility clinic and try to get a consultation with the fertility specialist. But fertility services are in high demand and couples are often disappointed when they hear about the long waiting lists.
This is where Woom offers a great solution.
Our women’s health GPs have a (w)holistic input process for your pre-fertility work-up. What people, women and men, do not always realise is that their whole health impacts their fertility health and that the impact is far bigger than we realise.
Looking at lifestyle factors like weight, nutrition, smoking habits, alcohol consumption and stress can make a huge impact on your fertility status. A women’s health GP will help you assess those factors.

Equally, our GPs can help direct you to specialist care sooner in case you need urgent fertility intervention or have significant gynaecological conditions. At Woom, both Dr Tamara Hunter and Dr Shital Julania are fertility specialists and our GPs are in direct contact should you need further help.
Fertility check Perth - What to expect?
Taking a family history is important to look for heritable genetic conditions or looking for conditions that impact fertility and may run in families. Examples are endometriosis and PCOS.
We will also check for immunity to measles, mumps, rubella and varicella and the presence of other infectious diseases.
So if you are younger than 35 and have been trying for a year or longer, or you are over 35 trying for 6 months without success, we encourage you to book your fertility check asap. We know that above all, age is the confounding factor for women so time is of utmost importance.
Seeing the GP quickly may enable early detection of significant issues (for example if you are not ovulating or you have blocked tubes). Or if we establish that you need to make some lifestyle changes prior to starting your fertility treatment. Our GPs are often the best people to manage this because of their holistic view on your situation.
A pre-fertility work-up usually consists of an initial longer consult, then shorter individual appointments with both partners. Follow-up appointments for both partners are also required to make a plan.
Access to fertility doctor Perth
Our Woom GPs will discuss your results in a follow-up consultation and they will propose a plan depending on the findings.
This could mean addressing lifestyle factors and calling on our dietitian, physiotherapist or psychologist at Woom to help improve your overall health.
Should your tests indicate a more urgent referral, then we can expedite your appointment with the fertility doctors or gynaecologists as necessary. For challenging cases, our women’s health GPs have access to fertility specialists at Woom where they can discuss your case and institute early management that will make your treatment journey at a fertility centre more streamlined and efficient.
