Infertility Evaluation & Testing Services

One in six couples have difficulty conceiving. Who should seek assistance from a reproductive endocrinologist?  If you meet any of these criteria, it is time to make an appointment:

  1. If you have been trying (not using any form of contraception) to conceive for one year or longer without success
  2. If the female partner is 35 or older and you have been trying for six months or longer
  3. If you have had two or more miscarriages
  4. If you think that there may be a reason for you to have difficulty conceiving (e.g. prior chemotherapy or radiation treatment)

Our tests  for infertility are individualized and based on a patient’s medical problems. Some of the most common tests performed for a fertility evaluation include:

  • Hormonal assessment during the first few days of the menstrual cycle checking a woman’s ovarian reserve with a follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and estradiol levels.
  • Transvaginal ultrasound exam – an ultrasound done using a probe inserted into a woman’s vagina (which is the best way to visualize the ovaries and uterus).

  • Hysterosalpingogram (HSG) – a series of X-rays of the pelvis taken while contrast is placed inside the uterus and fallopian tubes (this test is done in a radiology suite under fluoroscopy).
