While there are common symptoms of female infertility, finding the reason you cannot become pregnant may require blood tests, diagnostic imaging, and some minimally invasive testing. Our team is here to provide comprehensive fertility testing to evaluate your fertility health and develop a personalized treatment plan.
There are specific ovulation tests we can perform to determine if and when a woman is releasing an egg based on a surge in luteinizing hormone (LH). The patient often does this test at home using an over-the-counter kit. Other ovulation tests may include blood tests to check a woman’s hormone levels.
Ovarian Reserve Testing
We can measure the quantity and quality of a woman’s egg supply. A woman’s ovarian reserve is evaluated by blood tests that examine hormone levels on specific days of her menstrual cycle. In addition, an antral follicle count may be performed via transvaginal ultrasound to examine the ovaries and make an estimate of how many immature eggs are available.
HSG is an outpatient x-ray dye test used to diagnose problems related to fertility. During an HSG, an x-ray records images of your uterine cavity and fallopian tubes while they are filled with dye. It can help your provider evaluate the shape of the uterus and condition of fallopian tubes.
A transvaginal ultrasonograph is performed by inserting an ultrasound probe into the woman’s vagina. This allows the fertility specialist to view the uterus and ovaries to examine for cysts, fibroids, or other abnormalities.
Saline Infusion Sonohysterography (SIS)
Saline infusion sonohysterography is an in-office procedure used to detect uterine abnormalities such as polyps or fibroids. The test is performed by filling the uterus with saline (a salt solution) prior to performing a transvaginal ultrasound.
More advanced fertility tests may be performed if necessary. Hysteroscopy can be used to look for signs of disease or damage to the uterus or fallopian tubes. Laparoscopy, a minimally invasive surgery, can evaluate a woman’s uterus, ovaries, and fallopian tubes for blockages, endometriosis, scar tissue, or other problems with the reproductive organs.
