During your fertility evaluation, it may be necessary to obtain blood samples and test for evidence of any hormone abnormalities.
The Follicle Growth Series evaluation is designed to follow the growth and maturation of an ovum (egg) in the ovary. Read More »
In an estimated 40 percent of all couples experiencing fertility problems, some abnormality in the male partner is present, making semen analysis an essential step in evaluation
This test is designed to evaluate factors that influence the sperm’s ability to travel up through the cervix (or mouth of the uterus).
This test is designed to evaluate the uterine cavity and the fallopian tubes using contrast material (dye) that appears white on an X-ray.
This procedure evaluates the inside cavity of the uterus, the endometrial cavity. The endometrial cavity is lined by hormonally active cells that provide the perfect environment for the human embryo to implant and grow into a fetus.
Many factors can contribute to male infertility, including low sperm production, blockages in the sperm conducting system, antibodies against sperm, injury to the testes, hormonal problems, poor descent of the testes, and varicocele.
This test is designed to evaluate whether the lining of the uterus (endometrium) has been properly stimulated hormonally to allow a fertilized egg to implant and grow into a pregnancy.

The immune system of the body detects and attacks things that are different (non-self). Research in this area has led to a greater understanding of pregnancy losses that were previously classified as unexplained.
It has been shown that some women as well as men may have substances in their systems that can attach to sperm and immobilize or even kill them
The major cause of an early miscarriage is probably a genetic (inherited) factor. An estimated 50 to 60 percent of all first trimester miscarriages of a single fetus (not twins or more) show evidence of genetic defects.
The more accurate your diagnosis is, particularly if you’re dealing with multiple infertility factors, the sooner you’ll be able to get the fertility treatment(s) you need.
Many people associate “fertility treatment” with in-vitro fertilization. While it’s true certain infertility factors mean jumping directly to IVF, many patients experience conception and live birth using simpler and more affordable fertility treatment options. These “first-rung” fertility treatments include:
Reproductive surgery to remove scar tissue, fibroids or other tubal/uterine blocks or abnormalities that can be corrected
Ovulation stimulation using oral or injectable fertility medications (made even more affordable by our discounted drug program)
If the first rung treatments aren’t the right fit for your diagnosis or aren’t successful within a reasonable amount of time, we will discuss more advanced fertility treatment options, referred to as assisted reproductive technology (ART). These treatments include:
Recurrent pregnancy loss evaluation and treatment
Intracytoplasmic sperm injections (ICSI) (historically referred to as artificial insemination)
In-vitro fertilization (IVF)
Pre-implantation genetic screening (PGS)
Pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD)
Fertility preservation for cancer patients
It’s no mystery that fertility testing, diagnostics and treatments add up. The good news is that more and more employers offer health insurance policies, like those offered by Progyny, making it possible for individuals and couples like you to obtain the fertility services they need for a fraction of the normal price. If your company isn’t one of them, the Fertility Center of Dallas aims to make our treatments as affordable as possible.
We do this via bundled fertility package options, financing options at reasonable interest rates, and discounted drug programs. FCD also offers a one-of-a-kind IVF refund program for qualifying candidates, that results in 50% of your money back if IVF treatments aren’t successful. This is how confident we are that we’ll be able to help you conceive and give birth to your own, little miracle within a reasonable timeframe.
We are certainly proud of the awards we’ve received over the years, and feel they’re a testimony to our unwavering commitment to serving individuals and couples in their quest to start or build their families. However, we also acknowledge that awards never tell the whole story (the real proof is in the bundle of love you’ll eventually hold in your arms).
