Fertility Checkup for Couples

Couple fertility check-up

If you are struggling to conceive, the best and most cost-effective option is to ensure both you and your partner have gone through a fertility check-up. Our check-ups for couples involve complete assessments of both partners.

We strongly recommend that prior to undergoing any form of fertility treatment, a patient’s fertility should be assessed thoroughly. HSFC offers fertility check-ups for both men and women, including hormone blood tests, semen analysis, ultrasound scans, and follow-up advice and consultations.

What is checked

For the female, we will check the ovaries and uterus for any abnormalities. For the male, we’ll look at sperm density and motility and check for any infections or other abnormalities.

 

 

How do we perform the checks

You will have first a remote fertility consultation with one of our specialists, and then we will ask you to attend the clinic for your assessments (or to provide samples, in the male’s case). Both of your check-ups will likely be completed within 1 hour.

 

Before the assessment, we ask patients to abstain from any form of sexual acgtivity for between 2-5 days. This is to ensure we get the best, most accurate samples and results.

What is analysed

During the female fertility check-up, we will analyse:

  • The ovaries and uterus (via a pevlic ultrasound scan).
  • Hormone levels, including the Antimullerian Hormone (AMH), follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), lutenising hormone (LH), oestradiol (E2), Prolactin, Thyroid function (TSH and Free T4) and vitamin D.

During the male fertility check-up, we will analyse:

  • The sperm (including its density, volume, count, morphology and motility).
  • Any anti-sperm antibodies or infections.

Results and further testing

Directly after the fertility assesments of yourself and your partner, you will be provided with a thorough report of your results. All of the results can be explained to you in detail by our experts.

 

Our doctors will arrange a second consultation with you (which can be done remotely) to discuss your results and options for fertility treatment if necessary.

 

Please note that, in some case, further testing might be advised.
