Fertility is usually considered to be the woman's department, which is why most women feel that they are obligated to take a battery of fertility tests, while their husbands do nothing.

Testing is an important part of understanding why a seemingly normal, healthy couple is not conceiving . Here are some of the common female fertility tests recommended by fertility specialists from all over the world.

Interview

The doctor would first like to interview you and talk about your:

  • Medical history
  • Past surgeries
  • Birth control methods
  • Sexual life and history
  • Sexually transmitted diseases
  • Previous pregnancies and their outcomes
  • Questions on the menstrual cycle

Once the doctor takes down a detailed medical history , other tests are usually recommended:
 
  • Ovulation Tests- There are several tests to detect whether a woman is ovulating normally. A home ovulation test strip can help detect if the woman is ovulating, by detecting elevated levels of the luteinizing hormone. Levels of progesterone may be checked through a blood test or the woman may be recommended to have trans-vaginal ultrasounds to check for the maturation of follicles and their rupture. The ultrasound scans help understand a woman's cycle much better
  • Tests for Tubal patency Organs- A hysterosalpinogram, using a liquid dye, is used to detect the health and potential blockages in the Fallopian tubes. Trans-vaginal ultrasound may be performed to check the health of the uterus and the ovaries.
Other Tests

Other female fertility tests include:
  • Blood hormonal tests, to check for AMH, FSH,LH,prolactin and TSH levels


Summary: Female fertility tests help us to find out why the woman is infertile.
