Specialised Fertility Evaluation

A specialised fertility evaluation is a comprehensive assessment of reproductive health. It looks at factors such as hormone balance and sperm quality that can affect fertility, providing an in-depth analysis of the couple’s reproductive chances. With advanced technology, accurate diagnostic tests, and experienced fertility experts, it offers a detailed insight into the chances of conception. This evaluation helps couples to make informed decisions about treatment options with greater confidence.

What is a specialised fertility evaluation?

A specialised fertility evaluation is a comprehensive assessment of fertility. It involves a detailed physical examination, an ultrasound scan to assess the uterus and ovaries, blood tests to measure hormone levels, and an analysis of medical history. It may also include genetic testing, semen analysis, and procedures such as hysterosalpingography or laparoscopy. The evaluation helps identify both male and female fertility issues that can be addressed through treatment or lifestyle changes.

When would a doctor suggest undergoing a specialised fertility evaluation?

It is often recommended that patients undergo a specialised fertility evaluation when they have been trying to conceive for over a year without success or when fertility issues are suspected due to age, recurrent miscarriages, or known medical conditions. Additionally, if a couple has had failed pregnancies with IVF treatment, doctors may suggest further testing of the fertility factors involved. A specialised fertility evaluation can help pinpoint any specific issues and provide guidance for the best course of action for the patient.

What are the risks or complications associated with a specialised fertility evaluation?

  • A specialised fertility evaluation carries some risks, such as the risk of infection, minor bleeding or bruising from the procedure, and potential damage to organs.
  • Some individuals may experience an allergic reaction or nausea as a result of the evaluation.
  • In rare cases, complications may include ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS), miscarriage, or a serious blood clotting disorder called thrombophlebitis.

What is the post-surgical course and recovery period for a specialised fertility evaluation?

After a specialised fertility evaluation, it is normal to experience some discomfort. Pain relief medication should be taken as advised. For the first two weeks, it is important to rest and avoid heavy lifting or exercise. After that, light activity is allowed and gradually increased over the following few weeks. Bleeding or spotting may occur for a few days, and any concerns should be discussed with a medical professional. To minimise the risk of infection, showers are preferred to baths during this time. Following the full recovery period of 4-6 weeks, fertility levels will be evaluated again.

What is the follow-up period for a specialised fertility evaluation?

Following a specialised fertility evaluation, patients should expect to be monitored closely over several months. Regular appointments with their doctor may be recommended to track hormone levels, monitor follicular growth, and assess the overall health of the patient. Further tests may also be necessary to gain a full understanding of the patient's fertility status. During this follow-up period, lifestyle changes or treatments may be recommended as required.


A specialised fertility evaluation provides an in-depth analysis of a patient's reproductive health and determines the best path forward to achieve successful conception. It is an important step in the process of family planning, as it can help identify any underlying issues or concerns that may be preventing pregnancy. By understanding your body and its unique needs, you can take the necessary steps to become a parent with confidence. Specialised fertility evaluation offers hope for those who are struggling with infertility and helps them create their own families.
