Fertility Testing

Fertility Testing near Me

Infertility is a common issue that many couples struggle with when trying to conceive. Fertility testing can help pinpoint a potential cause of infertility that you and your partner may be experiencing. The Fertility Institute offers extensive fertility testing and treatments across Louisiana to help people make informed decisions when building their families.

When is the Right Time for Fertility Testing?

Infertility has several causes, including factors such as age, family history, medical history, and genetics. Though commonly thought of as a female issue, the truth is that both men and women can experience infertility equally.

When you are trying to have a family, our fertility specialists recommend fertility testing for both male and female partners when:

  • You are under the age of 35 and have been unable to conceive for at least a year. 
  • You are 35 or older and have been unable to conceive for at least six months. 
  • You are a woman over 40 and have been unable to conceive for 3 months. 
  • If you have a known condition that can impact your fertility, such as PCOS or endometriosis.
  • You are an LGBTQ individual or couple considering using donor sperm, donor egg, or a gestational surrogate. 

If you meet any of the criteria above, it is time to consider fertility testing. Our fertility specialists walk you through each aspect of our fertility tests so you feel supported every step of the way. Fertility testing is an essential step of the fertility treatment process at The Fertility Institute for all treatment options.

What’s Involved in Fertility Testing?

Comprehensive fertility testing involves a variety of tests and exams, beginning with a thorough review of the medical and family history of yourself and your partner. Your fertility specialist will ask for this information prior to your first appointment to review and make your initial appointment as productive as possible.

Your fertility specialist may also recommend a pelvic exam, ultrasound, or bloodwork for female patients and a semen analysis for male patients. These tests measure your hormone levels and help provide a better understanding of what factors may be influencing your infertility. A semen analysis looks at the volume of sperm in semen, as well as the motility and morphology of the sperm. Then, your fertility specialist can create a personalized treatment plan based on the findings of your fertility testing.
