Fertility Testing

Fertility Testing can include the following tests and services:

Semen Analysis

The first step in determining male infertility is to evaluate the sperm for numbers, movement, appearance and shape. Sperm problems can be caused by deficient production, blocked sperm ducts, hormone abnormalities, testicular trauma, and birth defects.

Ovarian Reserve Test

As part of a fertility evaluation, ovarian reserve tests check FSH, estradiol, anti-mullerian hormone and ovarian antral follicle count levels.

Testing the Uterus

A basic infertility evaluation should include an assessment of the uterus to check for irregularities such as uterine fibroids or polyps.

Blocked Fallopian Tubes and Tubal Factor Infertility

Blocked fallopian tubes are a common cause of infertility and an assessment for damage to discover this can be done through a hysterosalpingogram (HSG).

Hysterosalpingogram (HSG) Test

A hysterosalpingogram (HSG) test is an x-ray using special contrast liquid to determine if the uterine cavity has a normal shape and if the fallopian tubes are open.
