What is a fertility assessment?

When a woman has difficulty conceiving, there are a few questions that we need to answer:

  • Is she ovulating with a good store of eggs in the ovary?
  • Is the uterus structurally normal with open Fallopian tubes?

What sort of tests will you carry out?

The assessment will include:

  • A consultation for medical history
  • An AMH (Anti Mullerian Hormone) blood test to assess ovarian reserve or store of eggs
  • A transvaginal pelvic ultrasound scan for antral follicle count and to assess the uterus for any obvious structural problems

We will be able to identify if there is infrequent ovulation, and the reason for this. We will be able to highlight any factors affecting implantation due to changes in the uterus, such as polyps or fibroids, or Ovarian problems such as polycystic ovaries or endometriosis, all of which can contribute to problems with conception.

How long will the assessment take?

It will take approximately one hour for the consultation and scan. This will be followed by the blood test taken by a phlebotomist.

What happens after the assessment?

You will have the opportunity to discuss the next steps, which may include treatment plans as appropriate. This may include:

  • Medication to boost ovulation
  • Surgery to remove fibroids, polyps, or ovarian cysts
  • Ovarian drilling
  • Tubal patency testing
  • If necessary, you can be given information of assisted conception options including the potential chances of success
