You've tried to get pregnant without success and you've decided to turn to a fertility specialist for help. Now what? At Gundersen Health System Fertility Center, we take you through an evaluation process that is customized to you and your partner's needs.
Before your first appointment, we review health records, test results, and operative reports related to your fertility issues. This helps us know your history better so we can provide the best options and prevent you from unnecessary tests and procedures.
You and your partner should come to the first appointment together. Causes of infertility can be due to problems with the woman, man or both. Testing and treatment may be needed for both of you.
In order to assess your fertility, we evaluate each step the sperm and egg must go through, including production of the egg and sperm and whether they can come into proper contact with each other.
Because each situation is different, the tests will vary and you may need a variety of tests. Learn more about some of the more common fertility evaluations we provide:
