Fertility Evaluation

Approximately 85% of couples should achieve a pregnancy within one year of regular unprotected intercourse. This translates into about 12-15% of couples seeking some form of fertility investigation at some point during their lifetime.

It is extremely common and you are definitely not alone. The diagnosis of sub fertility is immensely anxiety provoking and stressful. At ARS, we have extensive experience not only in the realm of diagnosis and the surgical and medical management of sub fertility, but also in managing the stress and anxiety that this diagnosis brings. We have a comprehensive approach that will enable couples to know all of the options. You have a choice and it should be a well informed and knowledgeable one made only after understanding the underlying diagnosis and all of the available options.

When should we evaluate?

Recommendations for an evaluation stem mainly from age, duration of sub fertility, and whether there are additional underlying factors that may impact reproductive success. Couples should seek assistance immediately if menstrual cycles are irregular/unpredictable, they suffer from pelvic pain, or the partner is known or suspected to have a potential health factor that may impact the quality of sperm. Many times a brief history can uncover issues that have never been addressed.

At ARS, we also believe that we are able to reduce the stress associated with infertility by evaluating a couple when they are concerned that there may be a problem, regardless of the time interval over which fertility has been attempted. It is also an excellent option for women that would like to determine how to optimize fertility for the future.

How long does this process take?

ARS offers a complete couple-oriented fertility diagnostic evaluation. We take one menstrual cycle to figure out all of the underlying problems. Each test is performed at a particular point in the cycle. After a short time (usually a few weeks), we have all of the information back. We then sit down and go over each test and what options are available. Success rates from continuing to try on your own through aggressive treatments would be discussed along with our own recommendations. The majority of our patients achieve a healthy pregnancy with less aggressive means.
