Couples who have been experiencing infertility issues for an extended period of time may choose to undergo an evaluation to determine the cause of their problem with fertility. An infertility evaluation may be performed to determine the source of infertility and diagnostic tests may also be used to detect any conditions or abnormalities that may inhibit one or both partner's ability to conceive a child. Candidates for infertility evaluation may include couples who have been trying to conceive a child for at least one year, couples who are over the age of 35, or couples or patients with certain physical or medical problems that may affect fertility. During the initial infertility evaluation, both the female and male partner will undergo a full physical examination and their complete medical histories will be reviewed. In addition, blood and urine tests will be performed. Additional tests to determine the cause of infertility will also be performed and may include: Evaluation For Women:
Hysterosalpingography to evaluate the condition of the uterus and fallopian tubes
Hormone testing to check levels of hormones that control reproductive processes
Ovulation testing
Imaging tests of reproductive organs
Evaluation For Men:
Semen analysis
Hormone level testing to check testosterone levels
Transrectal and scrotal ultrasound
Testicular biopsy
Pelvic ultrasound
Both partners may also be tested for any genetic defects that may be causing infertility. Treatment of Infertility
Once the cause of infertility is identified, a treatment plan can be created. Treatment for infertility aims to to maximize the couple's fertility potential and allow for successful conception. Recommendations for increasing fertility may be as simple as quitting smoking, avoiding alcohol and losing weight. Treatments may vary depending on the cause and may include: For Women:
Fertility drugs to induce ovulation
Surgery to repair blocked or damaged fallopian tubes
Surgery to correct problems with the uterus
Hormone treatments Many couples may experience physical and psychological stress during infertility treatments, which can be costly, and may not be covered by insurance. The couple should discuss all fertility treatment options with a physician in order to determine the best approach to treat issues of infertility.
