Conditions That Impact Fertility

Common Tests Related to Infertility

Because of the complex nature of the female reproductive tract, there can be many reasons a woman is having trouble becoming pregnant. Our experts will conduct various diagnostic tests to pinpoint the cause of your infertility. Tests can include:

  • A physical pelvic exam
  • A pelvic ultrasound
  • A saline ultrasound (also called saline infusion sonography, saline is infused in the uterus and combined with 3D ultrasound to evaluate the uterus shape)
  • A hysterosalpingogram (X-ray of the uterus and fallopian tubes) or saline infusion sonogram (ultrasound evaluation of the uterus, ovaries and fallopian tubes)
  • Bloodwork

These procedures can tell us about the health and structure of the fallopian tubes, uterus and ovaries, specifically whether there are abnormalities in size or shape, fibroids, scar tissue or other masses. We are also able to learn if you have other conditions that may be affecting your fertility, such as hormonal disorders.
