For your infertility test, your doctor will begin by gathering historical detail about you and your family’s medical background. They also will perform some of the following tests:
During your initial consultation, Dr. Saadat will administer an anti-mullerian hormone (AMH) blood test and a vaginal ultrasound unless you have a specific issue or medical history that would indicate starting with different tests. The AMH test is used to assess your ovarian (egg) reserve, and the ultrasound is used to do a follicle count and check for any issues that are visible on the ultrasound.
A serum progesterone test determines how much progesterone is in the blood, which is a hormone produced in the ovaries after ovulation. This test can help discover whether a woman is ovulating (whether an egg is being released from her ovaries) with each menstrual cycle.
If a woman is experiencing anovulation (when the ovaries do not release an egg), the following lab tests can help determine why:
Evaluation of tubal patency will determine whether a woman’s fallopian tubes are open or not. If necessary, Dr. Saadat will recommend that you undergo a hysterosalpingogram (an X-ray that uses dye) to examine the fallopian tubes at an outside imaging center. The HSG X-ray is a time-sensitive test done between the 7th and 10th day of a woman’s cycle.
A hydro sonogram (water ultrasound) is used to evaluate the uterus and determine if there are fibroids or polyps present in the uterine cavity. For some patients, a hysterosalpingogram (X-ray that uses dye) at an outside imaging center may be recommended instead of a hydro sonogram to evaluate the uterine cavity.
The cost of a female infertility test could vary by person depending on the tests we have to perform to understand the source of your infertility. Some tests are faster, simpler, and less expensive than others.
Some may be eligible for financing or insurance coverage for your female infertility tests. Our team will be happy to review these options with you during the initial consultation. Contact us online or through call us at 310-881-8846 to get started.
Patients with recurrent pregnancy loss may need an additional evaluation that includes genetic testing to check for any chromosomal irregularities, an examination of the uterus to evaluate any congenital abnormalities (such as uterine septum or bicornuate uterus), and testing to determine if there are antibodies present in the maternal serum that may affect pregnancy outcomes.
Chlamydia, ureaplasma, and other infectious agents can potentially interfere with conception, so testing for these infections and bacterium may be needed. Evaluation of infertility may also require testing for the presence of antisperm antibodies, which work against the sperm, and paternal leukocyte antigens in the female partner. Laparoscopy, a surgical procedure to look into the pelvic cavity, may be
