Heterosexual Couples & Fertility Testing
Infertility affects as many as 1 in 8 couples. Over 90% of the time, couples with infertility will have a detectable medical condition that is interfering with the ability to become pregnant. The only way to determine the cause of infertility and the best treatment for you is to perform fertility testing on both the male and female partners.
Testing the Male partner involves one test:
Testing the Female partner requires the combination of the following tests:
- Hormonal evaluation
- Uterine and fallopian tube evaluation
We understand that some patients may prefer to first discuss their situation with their primary care doctor or their OB/GYN. For many patients, this conversation may result in preliminary testing using one or more of the tests listed above. Depending on the results, your doctor may refer you to a fertility specialist or suggest a basic treatment using drugs such as clomiphene citrate (Clomid) or letrozole (Femara). Whether you have undergone previous fertility testing or not, our physicians can pick up where someone left off and help determine the most effective treatments for you.
