Initial Infertility Workup
After your initial consultation with a physician, an individualized, diagnostic plan will be outlined to determine the cause of your infertility. This plan is based on the information provided by your medical history and physical examination. It is designed to focus on and answer many important questions including:
- Are you ovulating?
- Are your fallopian tubes normal?
- Is your uterus receptive to implantation?
- Are the sperm normal in number and in function?
Once your diagnosis is established, a treatment plan will be tailored to suit your personal situation. The recommended approach will depend on your age, diagnosis, the duration of infertility, any previous treatments, and your personal preferences.

The tests performed to diagnose infertility are typically referred to as pre-screening tests. Before you initiate a treatment cycle, it is critical for your physician to identify any potential obstacles to achieving a pregnancy. This assessment is determined by the results of the male and female pre-screening tests. Testing is individualized, every test is not performed on every person.
