A couple is considered infertile after actively seeking pregnancy for one year.
When pregnancy does not occur, fertility testing is started.
For the female, testing consists of checking for ovulation; this can be done by using an ovulation predictor kit or checking basal body temperatures daily. Blood tests which check hormone levels and special x-rays are also done.
For the male; a semen analysis is obtained.
If needed, fertility medications are used for both men and women. These medications cause a woman to ovulate and increase a man’s sperm count.
Intrauterine insemination is a procedure where the man’s sperm is inserted into the woman’s uterus after being washed in the laboratory. The wash procedure clears dead sperm and debris from the sample thus enhancing the viability of the sperm.
Fertility medications are used alone or in conjunction with intrauterine insemination.
