Fertility Investigation - step by step

A basic fertility investigation can be performed as described below. If an investigation has already been done through another health care institution, the arrangement may be different. The medical records from that clinic can be handed in and information about what might be added will be given.

For persons living close to the clinic in Uppsala the fertility investigation might be devided into two appointments. For persons traveling from longer distances we try to optimize and plan in advance so that one appointment might be enough for investigation and it might even include plan for start of treatment.

Initial Investigation - At the initial contact, a general review of the general state of health occurs and factors of specific relevance to fertility are checked more carefully. The investigation is performed by a doctor who is a specilist in fertility. Both persons in a couple are examined, in cases of treatments for singles, only the woman is examined.
It is beneficial if a health declaration form has been filled out before the visit.
A gynecological examination is performed including an ultrasound on the woman where the uterus and ovaries are evaluated from a fertility perspective, the ovarian reserve is also evaluated. Blood samples for analyses are collected, these are individualized based on what might be of relevance. 

To investigate a possible male factor, a sperm sample analysis is needed - The man is instructed on how and when a sperm test can be dropped off for analysis.

The results of this test are obtained in connection with the appointment at the clinic. The analysis of the sperm sample is performed by the clinic's embryologists.

Further Investigation -

 In some cases a supplementary ultrasound examination is needed to obtain additional information about the uterus and fallopian tubes. 

The investigation is called hystero salpingo sono graphy (HSSG). There might also be reasons for extended blood sample analyses if needed. 

Summary and recommendation - When all investigations needed are performed and all answers of the blood sample analyses are available, a a suggestion for treatment will be presented.
