In order to effectively treat fertility conditions, we must understand what causes them. Finding the underlying cause of infertility is vital to effective treatment. The clinic provides accurate assessment to couples with a view to reach a diagnosis with effective measures. The clinic is coordinated by an infertility expert. The assessment will include the following:
This shows our devotion and hard work towards our profession. The credit goes to our team efforts, proper guidance to the patients, valuing their money as well as their time. We do care the mental status of our patients and the agony they may feel for the negative results.
To examine if female patient has problems concerning ovulation, egg transport, fertilization or implantation, various tests may be administered based on the physician's examination and analysis. They include:
Urinary Luteinizing Hormone (LH) Test - The test detects the increase in luteinizing hormone that occurs before ovulation. Luteinizing hormone is emitted by the pituitary gland throughout the cycle, yet increases mid-cycle to induce the release of the egg (oocyte).
Serum Hormone Testing - The test measures the levels of luteinizing hormone, Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH), Prolactin, Progesterone and Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH). FSH is the hormone involved in producing mature eggs in the ovaries. Follicle stimulating hormone is done when a woman goes into menopause she has high FSH hormone levels. By measuring a woman's FSH, we get an indication as to whether she has normal "ovarian reserve". Prolactin (a hormone that empowers bosom drain generation) levels are done to check whether an unreasonable sum has caused hyperprolactinemia, a condition that meddles with ovulation. Progesterone levels are performed to decide whether insufficient levels are meddling with the improvement of the endometrium, the covering of the uterus that gets ready incipient organism implantation. TSH is checked as a measure for ordinary thyroid capacity.
Cervical Mucus Testing - This procedure involves a post coital test (PCT) which determines if the sperm is able to penetrate and survive in the cervical mucus. It also involves a bacterial screening.
Postcoital Testing - This test evaluates the quality and quantity of cervical mucus fluid within a few hours of sexual intercourse to inspect the interaction between sperm and cervical mucus.
Hysterosalpingogram (HSG) - This is a radiology procedure that examines the health of the uterus and fallopian tubes. A radio-opaque fluid is injected into the uterus and fallopian tubes and photographed via x-rays to check the shape of the uterus for fibroids, and scar tissue, and whether the tubes are blocked. It is relatively safe, simple, inexpensive and reliable test.
Diagnostic Laparoscopy - Laparoscopy is an out-patient surgical procedure that uses a thin, lighted tube (a laparoscope). It is also used to look for abnormalities inside the pelvis. It is generally accurate in diagnosing infertility. It is used to treat problems that cause infertility such as scar tissue, endometriosis, ovarian cysts, fibroids and endometriosis, a condition in which uterine lining tissue grows outside the uterus.
Hysteroscopy - This test is a minimally invasive procedure in which a fiberoptic ‘telescope’ is passed through the vagina into the uterus to examine and check for abnormalities. It can be used to find polyps, fibroids, scar tissue or other abnormalities inside the uterus.
Ultrasound Scans - This test is performed to evaluate the thickness of the lining of the uterus(endometrium), to monitor follicle development and to check the situation of the uterus and ovaries, for an instance, whether you have any fibroids or polyps before, and ovarian cysts. It is essential to determine the presence of fibroids or polyps before treatment is initiated. The presence of any of these structure could significantly compromise the likelihood of embryo implantation.
Endometrial Biopsy - This is a procedure that involves scraping a small amount of tissue from the endometrium. This procedure is performed to assess the lining of the uterus.
