A fertility test is a diagnostic procedure to uncover the underlying cause of infertility, the inability to become pregnant after a year of unprotected sex. Infertility can also describe difficulties maintaining a pregnancy and preventing a miscarriage.
The providers at Center for Reproductive Medicine offer on-site fertility testing for both men and women. Depending on your unique needs, they can determine which type of fertility tests are right for you.
Fertility testing for women starts with a review of your personal and family medical history. Your Center for Reproductive Medicine provider also performs a physical exam to evaluate your general health.
Your doctor may request diagnostic tests like:
Blood work to evaluate your hormone levels can identify imbalances in your estrogen and other reproductive hormone levels. This information can help your provider identify other diagnostic testing or treatments you need in order to address infertility.
Ultrasound imaging uses soundwaves to create images of your inner reproductive organs and identify obstructions and structural issues in your fallopian tubes and uterus.
A hysterosalpingogram (HSG) is a special X-ray technology that can pinpoint blockages in your fallopian tubes or other structures. The procedure involves an injection of a contrast dye that moves through your uterine cavity. Your doctor monitors real-time X-ray images to follow the dye and confirm structural abnormalities.
An endometrial biopsy is a minimally invasive procedure to collect a sample of tissue from the uterine lining (endometrium). This type of fertility test can identify infections or inflammation and help your provider determine if your uterus is ready for the implantation of a fertilized egg.
The endocrinology team also specializes in minimally invasive diagnostic surgery to identify issues that don’t show up on imaging tests or blood work.
The endocrinology team at the Center for Reproductive Medicine can diagnose and treat a variety of issues that contribute to male infertility. They offer several in-office fertility tests including:
During a physical exam, your physician evaluates your male reproductive organs to identify irregularities in size, position, or shape of the organs. They may also request ultrasound imaging to get a closer look at your inner reproductive structures to identify blockages or other structural issues.
Blood work is available in the office to detect hormone imbalances that affect your fertility. Blood tests can also uncover genetic issues that contribute to infertility.
A semen analysis involves the collection of a semen sample from you at home or in the office. The providers then examine the sample to assess the volume and consistency of your semen, the motility of your sperm, and the overall sperm count.
Based on the results of your fertility test, the reproductive endocrinologists work closely with you on a treatment plan to correct underlying obstructions or organ damage that interferes with fertility. They can recommend fertility preservation services and medical-assisted reproduction options like in vitro fertilization (IVF).
