Session 1: Primary investigation of the infertile couple

Author: Svend Lindenberg

The primary investigation of an infertile couple has to be sufficient to allocate the couple to the optimal treatment, using a minimum of resources on investigations and time for the patients. On the other hand, a thorough information and explanation is also mandatory for prescribing drugs, setting diagnosis and guidance of the couple through a sometimes very stressful treatment. This session is aimed at teaching doctors to handle the primary investigation of an infertile couple optimal in respect to the resources and information to the patients.
