Initial Evaluations

Providing you the highest chance at success

To provide you the best treatment plan, our physicians may recommend going through certain evaluations to better assess your fertility needs. Below are some tests we offer to our patients.

Evaluates characteristics of the male's sperm such as motility, count, and abnormalities

The use of high-frequency sound waves to create images of your uterus and/or ovaries to better assess fertility conditions

Helps identify hormonal imbalances that may impair your fertility. These may include Day 3 FSH/Estradiol, Anti-Mullerian Hormones (AMH), TSH, and/or Prolactin level

Evaluates the quality of the endometrial tissue that lines the inside walls of your uterus

Utilizes a sterile saline solution and ultrasound to examine the uterus to determine possible causes or issues that may be contributing to infertility such as abnormal bleeding, polyps, fibroids, overall health of endometrial lining, and/or cancer concerns

The use of a small telescope attached to a video camera allowing direct visualization of the uterine cavity when placed through the cervix

X-ray photos taken as sterile fluids are introduced into the cervix and pushed through the uterus and Fallopian tubes. This allows for evaluation of the uterine cavity for abnormalities. The Fallopian tubes will also be analyzed for tubal patency or blockage

Additional Laboratory Testing

Additional testing may include female prenatal panel, Vitamin-D level, and FDA-required infectious disease screening for both partners. A full evaluation based on your medical history, initial workup and evaluation, along with symptoms may uncover one or more factors that may be the cause of infertility. Any additional testing or appointment may be necessary based upon initial testing or evaluation, which will be scheduled accordingly.

Screening Appointments

At the beginning of the treatment cycle, both partners are encouraged to come in and review treatment schedule, consents, and financial responsibilities.

Lab Work should be done on Day 2 or Day 3 of your menstrual cycle, and may include your blood work for day 3 and any other lab work required by your physician.

AFC Ultrasound is also done on the 2nd or 3rd day of the cycle.

These diagnostic procedures are generally done on day 6-12 of the menstrual cycle:

  • Hysterosalpingogram
  • Mid-Cycle Ultrasound, and/or
  • Sonohysterogram

Partner’s lab work and Semen Analysis is done by appointment only and requires abstinence for a period of 2-7 days.
