Female Fertility Assessment
Female Fertility Testing at Dallas Fort Worth Fertility Associates
If you and your partner have been trying to conceive and have been unsuccessful for one year (6 months if you are over the age of 35), it might be time to seek specialized fertility care to examine your reproductive system, hormone levels, and overall fertility health to investigate what might be contributing to your inability to become pregnant. A family history of fertility issues, medical event (such as chemotherapy or surgery), or history of irregular periods may also contribute to infertility. Because of this, making an appointment to start evaluation is encouraged as part of your family-building journey.
While finding answers may feel daunting, having a better understanding of your fertility can help put you on track to build your family. Here at Dallas-Fort Worth Fertility Associates, our team of experienced professionals work closely with you to make the testing process comfortable and quick.
Your Fertility Assessment
If this is your first visit to a fertility clinic, your physician at Dallas Fort-Worth Fertility Associates will test both you and your partner (if applicable). Since conception issues can be either male or female factor (or both), it is important for each partner to get tested.
For females, the testing process answers two questions: Are there eggs and is there a path for sperm to reach an egg? Hormone tests and an ovarian ultrasound can help doctors predict the remaining amount of eggs in a woman’s body and help to conclude if there are any hormones restricting ovulation. A hysterosalpingogram, or HSG test, allows your physician to look at your fallopian tubes, confirming there is a clear path for the egg to release and the sperm to meet it. These tests can all be performed in any of our offices in Dallas, Southlake, Medical City, or Plano.
These diagnostic tests provide your physician with information to help diagnose a wide range of conditions that may cause infertility including tubal blockage, ovulation issues, diminished ovarian reserve, and more. With these answers, your physician will be able to provide you with the options that give you the highest chance of success.
