If you’re struggling to get pregnant and want to understand why, fertility tests can be used to determine the cause of infertility and to help guide the best treatment possible. As a fertility specialist, I’m here to help you and your partner understand your bodies, the potential reasons for infertility and to find a way forward.
Our fertility testing services in Sydney
There are a range of different ways of testing for fertility that our Sydney clinic can use, along with your medical history and preliminary testing you may have undergone with a GP or gynaecologist, in order to establish the reasons you’re not falling pregnant.
- Ovulation tests
- A pelvic ultrasound to check your endometrium, or womb lining
- AMH blood testing to check your ovarian reserve (how many eggs you have in your ovaries)
- Tests for fallopian tube and uterus health
- Diagnostic laparoscopy and hysteroscopy
- Chromosome checks
- Hormonal testing
- Semen analysis
You may need several tests to establish a reason for infertility, or you may not need very many at all – everyone is different, and we use a range of different kinds of tests that vary depending on your individual needs.
Once we’ve established a good understanding of your and your partner’s fertility, we can identify the underlying causes delaying a pregnancy, and move forward with the process of helping you conceive.
What comes next?
When we’ve established your fertility issues using testing, we can then move forward with formulating the right fertility treatment plan to give you the best possible chance of falling pregnant and carrying your baby to term. Along the way, I’ll be here to monitor your progress and to assist you in any way I can as you begin this exciting journey.
If fertility issues are leaving you and your partner unable to conceive, talk to me about organising a fertility assessment today.
The fertility testing process does involve various different medical tests to assess you and your partner, but it’s also an important time for me to get to know you both, understand your medical backgrounds, your fertility journey so far and what might be holding you back from successfully falling pregnant.
Once we’ve established these things, there are a range of fertility testing services in our Sydney clinic that we can perform to properly assess you and your partner’s fertility issues. Some of these tests only require a small sample of blood or an ultrasound to get results.
Not necessarily. In some cases, the results of your previous testing with a doctor or gynaecologist may be enough for us to move forward with treatment, or only a few tests will be required. In other situations, we may perform more extensive fertility testing in order to get to the bottom of your infertility issues.
There is no one prescribed way to do fertility testing in Sydney; it varies from couple to couple and situation to situation. Any testing we do is with the aim of creating the most effective fertility treatment plan possible for you, and to give you and your partner the best chance of starting your family.
