Fertility testing is the most accurate way to start your journey to parenthood. Once you know what’s keeping you from becoming pregnant, we can work to find the best solution. The results of these tests can determine the complexity and course of your treatment.
Your medical, reproductive, and family history can play a major factor in your fertility today. It’s the first stage in determining what additional tests should be performed. Please bring any medical records with you to help us understand where you’re at, so we can establish your journey ahead.
A comprehensive analysis includes an evaluation of sperm count, motility, and proportion of normal sperm (morphology) present in the sample. The objective is to get a sense of the semen quality and determine the need for additional testing. This includes hormonal and genetic testing, or a referral to a urologist specializing in male reproduction.
A Hysterosalpingogram (HSG) is an outpatient radiologic procedure that examines the uterus for congenital or acquired problems and determines if the fallopian tubes are open. Laparoscopy, hysteroscopy, and sonohysterography are alternatives that may provide similar information as an HSG.
Pelvic examinations and ultrasounds are very simple tests that provide further insights into your condition.
Hormone testing may reveal the causes of infertility and help us determine if you’re ovulating normally and which fertility therapy will be best for you.
Pelvic ultrasounds provide information about the female reproductive organs and help monitor response to various medical treatments.
