Allow NIAW 2022 to inspire you to start your fertility care journey
Maybe you’ve only just started thinking about visiting a fertility doctor, Or perhaps starting fertility care has been on your mind for a while. Either way, National Infertility Awareness Week (NIAW) is a great time to meet with one of our Austin infertility doctors. During NIAW 2022, people around the United States are thinking about the causes of infertility and how to overcome them, so why not use this time to take your first step on your fertility care journey?
What does taking the first step look like?
For many people, starting fertility care can be overwhelming. There’s a lot of new terminology and information to learn. Not only that, but there’s also a bit of grieving over not being able to conceive “the old fashioned way.” However, some of our patients take comfort in learning that they aren’t alone. In fact, NIAW 2022 reminds us that millions of women and men face these same struggles on their path to parenthood.
Our Austin infertility doctors and team members are here to support you as you’re getting started with fertility care. You can turn to our team to get answers to your questions and learn more about your family-building options. If you decide to take the next step, your doctor can order testing to determine what’s making it difficult for you to conceive and how you can overcome it.
Here are some of the tests you might encounter when starting fertility care.
- Fertility bloodwork to assess your levels of reproductive hormones.
- Transvaginal ultrasound to view your ovaries and uterus.
- HSG to determine whether your fallopian tubes are open or closed.
- Semen analysis to learn more about sperm count and quality.
Other tests, including surgical evaluation of infertility, are also available to help make an infertility diagnosis and develop a treatment plan. Your doctor will review your medical history and perform a physical exam to determine which tests might be right for you.
