Fertility Tests to be conducted prior to conception

Alternative Text By: MamyPoko | June 20, 2018

Nothing compares to the feeling of bringing a new life into the world, and if you and your partner are thinking of having kids, then that is the beginning of the whole journey for you! However, if you have been trying for some time now and haven’t been able to conceive, then going in for a few fertility tests won’t hurt! Don’t worry, bringing a child into the world requires a lot of effort, and might just require you to try even more than you already are.

It is always better to take fertility tests together with your partner since this will help you determine the further course of action better. When you do visit your doctor, there are many questions that you will be riddled with. Questions about your medical history, medicines that you might be taking, or whether you drink/smoke.

There are also many tests that you and your partner might be subjected to in the name of fertility tests, and these will, in the long run, help you determine how you can begin your journey of becoming parents:

Sperm Tests

In almost 50% cases where couples are not able to conceive, it so happens that the problem lies with the male partner, so getting a test done is always a good idea whenever you are thinking about going in for getting fertility tests done. In males, sometimes low sperm count or having sperm that is not moving particularly fast could be a reason behind the inability to conceive.

Ovulation Checks via Blood Tests

Did you know that the levels of hormones in a woman’s blood usually happen to be a direct link to her ovulation status? Ovulation is essentially the process in which an egg is released every month into the fallopian tube. If there is hormone imbalance in women, then it might cause issues with ovulation itself.

If you have been experiencing irregular periods or the lack of them, then that could be an indication that you are experiencing problems during ovulation.


During the course of your fertility tests, an ultrasound might also be carried out of your fallopian tubes, ovaries, and uterus. This is usually done using a transvaginal ultrasound, in which a small device is placed in the vagina and helps your doctors determine how healthy your ovaries and uterus is.

Thanks to the transvaginal ultrasound, your doctor will also be able to check for any blockages in the fallopian tube that might be preventing the egg from entering them.

Fertility tests are merely a routine formality that will play a vital role in helping you take a step further in the direction of bringing your own little bundle of joy into the world!
