What to expect during a couple’s fertility check-up
We’ll perform the following routine investigations
Step 1: Initial consultation – in person or remotely
Step 2: Investigations
For females, we’ll perform the following routine investigations:
a. A blood test to check a comprehensive panel of hormone levels, including anti-mullerian hormone (AMH), follicle stimulating hormone (FSH), oestradiol (E2), lutenising hormone (LH), prolactin, thyroid profile (Free T4, TSH) and vitamin D.
b. A pelvic ultrasound scan to assess ovarian reserve. A fertility specialist will also assess the general health of the uterus and ovaries.
Male partners will be asked to provide a semen sample for a comprehensive analysis that will analyse density, volume, count, morphology, motility, anti-sperm antibodies and infections. Prior to providing the sample, you’ll be asked to abstain for between 2 and 5 days so we obtain a good sample. Arrangements can be made for you to provide a sample from home, however, this should be discussed with our Andrology laboratory first to make the necessary arrangements.
