When you have experienced negative pregnancy tests and months of disappointment, you want answers. Texas Fertility Center specializes in the care and treatment of infertility, with 30 years of experience in helping couples and individuals get pregnant. Our board certified reproductive endocrinologists will clearly define a path to getting pregnant, resolving even the most complex causes of female infertility.
Fertility testing to identify causes of female infertility
Testing for female infertility begins with a conversation about your health history, and progresses from fertility blood tests and sonograms, to non-surgical tests such as hysterosalpingogram (HSG) and, possibly, minimally invasive fertility surgery.
While we are testing you for female causes, your fertility doctor will order a semen analysis for your partner to rule out male factors.
Female infertility testing usually takes one menstrual cycle to complete.
It’s important to begin this process by focusing on the positive. Most cases of infertility will be resolved with fertility treatment and only a small percentage of women will need advanced reproductive technologies such as in vitro fertilization, IVF. Our website details the many options you have for overcoming female infertility, with fertility treatments to address ovulation factors, blocked tubes, endometriosis, recurrent miscarriage and unexplained infertility.
When to seek treatment for female infertility
Your age and symptoms will determine the ideal time to call a fertility specialist. If you have a history of pelvic disease, irregular or painful periods or uterine factors (fibroids or polyps), arrange for a fertility workup with Texas Fertility Center. We also follow the American Society for Reproductive Medicine’s recommendation that women over 35 enlist a fertility specialist after six months of timed intercourse.
