Tests for Men
For a man to be fertile, the testicles must produce enough healthy sperm, and the sperm must be ejaculated effectively into the woman’s vagina. Tests for male infertility attempt to determine whether any of these processes are impaired.
- General physical examination –
This includes examination of your genitals and questions concerning your medical history, illnesses and disabilities, medications and sexual habits.
- Semen analysis –
This is the most important test for the male partner. Your doctor may ask for one or more semen specimens. Semen is generally obtained by masturbating or by interrupting intercourse and ejaculating your semen into a clean container. A laboratory analyzes your semen specimen for quantity, color, and presence of infections or blood. Detailed analysis of the sperm also is done. The laboratory will determine the number of sperm present and any abnormalities in the shape and movement (motility) of the sperm. Often sperm counts fluctuate from one specimen to the next.
- Hormone testing –
A blood test to determine the level of testosterone and other male hormones is common.
- Transrectal and scrotal ultrasound-
Ultrasound can help your doctor look for evidence of conditions such as retrograde ejaculation and ejaculatory duct obstruction.
- Testicular Biopsy –
This is a process, where the specialist retrieves a small portion of testicle for the examination behind the infertility matter. The biopsy is done by performing a minor incision in the skin of the patient’s scrotum. A small or say tiny, pea-sized amount of testicular tissue is retrieved. The patient might feel a bit discomfort after the procedure.
Tests for Women
For a woman to be fertile, the ovaries must release healthy eggs regularly, and her reproductive tract must allow the eggs and sperm to pass into her fallopian tubes to become fertilized by a sperm. Her reproductive organs must be healthy and functional.
After your doctor asks questions regarding your health history, menstrual cycle and sexual habits, you’ll undergo a general physical examination. This includes a regular gynecological examination. Specific fertility tests may include:
- Ovulation testing-
A blood test is sometimes performed to measure hormone levels to determine whether you are ovulating or not.
- Hysterosalpingography –
This test evaluates the condition of your uterus and fallopian tubes. Fluid is injected into your uterus, and an X-ray is taken to determine whether the fluid progresses out of the uterus and into your fallopian tubes. Blockage or problems often can be located and may be corrected with surgery.
- Laparoscopy –
Performed under general anesthesia, this procedure involves inserting a thin viewing device into your abdomen and pelvis to examine your fallopian tubes, ovaries and uterus. A small incision (8 to 10 millimeters) is made beneath your navel, and a needle is inserted into your abdominal cavity. A small amount of gas (usually carbon dioxide) is inserted into the abdomen to create space for entry of the laparoscope – an illuminated, fiber-optic telescope. The most common problems identified by laparoscopy are endometriosis and scarring. Your doctor can also detect blockages or irregularities of the fallopian tubes and uterus. Laparoscopy generally is done on an outpatient basis.
- Hormone testing –
Hormone tests may be done to check levels of ovulatory hormones as well as thyroid and pituitary hormones.
- Ovarian reserve testing –
Testing may be done to determine the potential effectiveness of the eggs after ovulation. This approach often begins with hormone testing early in a woman’s menstrual cycle.
- Genetic testing –
Genetic testing may be done to determine whether there’s a genetic defect causing infertility.
- Pelvic ultrasound –
Pelvic ultrasound may be done to look for uterine or fallopian tube disease.
Not everyone needs to undergo all, or even many, of these tests before the cause of infertility is found. Which tests are used and their sequence depend on discussion and agreement between you and your doctor.
Unexplained infertility –
In some infertile couples, no specific cause is found (unexplained infertility). Couples receivingthe diagnosis of unexplained infertility are more likely to seek multiple health care providers and be influenced by the experiences of family and friends or literature that promises new hope. Although infertility is unexplained, the pregnancy rate for these couples with infertility treatment is among the highest.
