Infertility Evaluation

Who should be evaluated for Infertility?

Over the course of 1 year, 85% of couples having unprotected intercourse will become pregnant. You should see a doctor if you:

  • Are under 35 and not pregnant after 12 months of attempting pregnancy.
  • Are 35 or older and not pregnant after 6 months of attempting pregnancy.
  • Women with irregular or no menstrual cycles
  • Women with history of known pelvic infection or endometriosis
  • History of infertility.
What are the causes of infertility?

There are three categories of cause for infertility:  Male, Female and Unexplained.

  • Female infertility:  this can be caused by a decline in fertility as a woman ages, failure to ovulate or release an egg, blockage of fallopian tubes, abnormal shaped uterus.
  • Male infertility: abnormal sperm count, shape, motility (ability to swim) or erectile dysfunction
  • Unexplained:  no cause is found in testing
What tests are there for infertility?
  • Male: Semen analysis
  • Female:
    • Blood hormone tests:  Recommended hormones vary based on your menstrual cycle and age.  Common tests ordered include: thyroid testing, prolactin testing, ovarian reserve testing (FSH, estradiol, anti-mullerian hormone)
    • Imaging:  Hysterosalpingogram which shows the inside of the uterus and whether fallopian tubes are blocked, pelvic ultrasound which looks at uterus and ovaries
    • Surgeries: hysteroscopy which looks at inside of uterus or laparoscopy which looks into abdomen to exam the fallopian tubes, ovaries and outside of uterus.
