Specialised Fertility Evaluation

Fertility evaluation is a specialized medical procedure used to assess an individual's or couple's ability to conceive. The procedure can be performed to determine the cause of infertility, evaluate the feasibility of conceiving using assisted reproductive technologies (ART), or screen for potential genetic disorders.

Fertility evaluation typically involves a series of tests and procedures, including medical history and physical examination, hormone testing, ovarian reserve testing, hysterosalpingography (HSG), semen analysis, and laparoscopy. This surgical procedure allows the doctor to look closely at the reproductive organs.

The procedure of the Fertility Evaluation

Fertility evaluation is a series of tests and procedures to determine whether a couple can conceive a child. This evaluation is done for couples having difficulty getting pregnant or for women considering fertility treatments.

Fertility evaluation usually begins with a complete medical history and physical examination. The next step is often a series of blood tests to check for hormone levels, genetic disorders, and other factors affecting fertility.

Based on the results, a fertility specialist can recommend the next steps. If no obvious cause of fertility problems is found, couples may be advised to keep trying to conceive on their own or based on the results of the consultation and tests. The fertility specialist will develop a treatment plan.

Qualifying the Procedure

This procedure can help to identify any underlying reasons for your infertility and may help you to finally achieve your dream of becoming a parent. To qualify for the Fertility Evaluation Procedure (FEP), you must:

  • Be an adult over 18 years, and the upper age can be discussed with the doctor depending upon your medical condition.
  • People who have a history of fertility problems or who have had multiple miscarriages.
  • Have a medical condition that causes infertility
  • Have been trying to conceive for at least 12 months without using birth control.

Why is the procedure conducted?

The fertility evaluation is often the first step in diagnosing and treating fertility issues. There are many reasons why fertility evaluation may be conducted. One reason is to check for any underlying health conditions affecting your ability to conceive. Another reason is to assess your ovarian reserve, which is the number of eggs left in your ovaries. The fertility evaluation can also help to determine the quality of your eggs and your partner’s sperm.
