Diagnosing Infertility

A diagnostic evaluation for infertility often begins with a physical exam and a thorough health history.

Afterward, your doctor may further evaluate you using one or more of the following methods:

  • Performing a pelvic ultrasound to determine if the uterus and ovaries are normal in appearance.
  • Performing an hysterosalpingogram test (HSG) or saline ultrasound to examine the inside contour of the uterus and to assess your fallopian tubes to see if they are open.
  • Assessing your ovarian reserve, which may include measuring the level of Anti-Mullerian Hormone (AMH) and Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) in your blood.
  • Measuring hormone levels including progesterone to determine whether you are ovulating.

Depending on your condition, additional detailed tests may be needed to determine the cause of infertility.
