In brief: Age & other info.

Her age is important.
Other important factors are her previous pregnancy history, including miscarriages and ectopic pregnancies, and whether or not she has regular periods. We will ask if she has any history of endometriosis, ovarian surgery, chlamydia or pid infections, smoking, or cancer therapy (rare). Previous fertility treatment such as clomid, (clomiphene) inseminations (iui) or ivf is important too.
