Fertility Evaluation


An infertility evaluation consists of exams and tests to determine the reason for your infertility. Treatment may be possible if a cause is identified. Many cases of infertility can be successfully treated even without a cause being found. Both partners’ medical and sexual histories are included in a standard fertility evaluation. Men undergo a semen analysis to determine the number of sperm and the movement and structure of the sperm. In the case of women, we check to see if they are ovulating. Ovulation can be detected and monitored through blood tests detecting hormones, ultrasound exams of the ovaries,
