Diagnostic Tests

Endocrine Studies

During your fertility evaluation, it may be necessary to obtain blood samples and test for evidence of any hormone abnormalities. Read More »

Follicle Growth Series

The Follicle Growth Series evaluation is designed to follow the growth and maturation of an ovum (egg) in the ovary. Read More »

Ovulation Stimulation

Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) is the hormone used to stimulate multiple eggs. FSH is given by daily injection in the form of Gonal-f®, Follistim®, Repronex®, and Bravelle®. Read More »

Semen Analysis

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. Read More »

Hormonal Therapy

Among the most promising treatments is medical stimulation of ovulation in women who do not ovulate or ovulate irregularly. The best candidates are women who are otherwise normal, and have fertile partners. Read More »

Post-Coital Test

This test is designed to evaluate factors that influence the sperm’s ability to travel up through the cervix (or mouth of the uterus). Read More »

Hysterosalpingogram

This test is designed to evaluate the uterine cavity and the fallopian tubes using contrast material (dye) that appears white on an X-ray. Read More »

Male Factor Therapy

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. Read More »

Endometrial Biopsy

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. Read More »

Immunological Therapy

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. Read More »

Sonohysterogram

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. Read More »

Immunological Tests

The immune system works to protect us from substances that try to invade our bodies (for example, infections), recognizing what is “self” and what is foreign to our system. Read More »

Immunobead Binding

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. Read More »

Genetic Tests

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. Read More »
