Speak with a fertility test specialist and find out which fertility test option is right for you.
Should I Get A Fertility Test?
Trying to conceive for an extended period of time without becoming pregnant is called “infertility.” Since both males and females can be infertile, being tested by fertility specialists like the ones at Oregon Reproductive Medicine can give couples a chance to treat infertility and achieve a viable pregnancy and birth.
Each person – male or female – is different, and diagnosing medical issues begins with a full medical assessment and history to find the best possible options for treating fertility issues.
Female Fertility Testing
For a female patient, specialists at a fertility clinic such as Oregon Reproductive Medicine will test hormone levels, ovulation, and the thickness of the endometrium (lining of the uterus) and FSH (follicle stimulating hormone) levels. Additionally, fertility specialists will evaluate the health and condition of the
fallopian tubes, uterus, and surrounding environments and determine if there are any abnormalities, or if there is a blockage.
Male Fertility Testing
Male infertility can factor into as many as 40-50% of all infertility cases. Male fertility problems can be caused by issues with sperm production, hormone imbalances, or conditions like weight or smoking that can affect fertility in general. To test for male infertility, a semen analysis is performed. This test measures sperm production, mobility, and size and shape of the sperm.
From Testing to Treating Infertility
Because specialists build treatments for infertility around each individual case and patient, each fertility treatment plan will be approached differently. Fertility specialists at Oregon Reproductive Services have one of the highest IVF birth rates in the nation for women under 35.
