Starting Infertility Treatments

The evaluation process typically takes one completed monthly cycle and may include:

  • Hormonal assessment through blood work and ultrasounds
  • Semen analysis and SCSA
  • Hysterosalpingogram (HSG), an X-ray that detects blockages or malformations in the fallopian tubes
  • Endometrial biopsy, which can detect inflammation in the uterine cavity
  • Surgical evaluation and treatment including hysteroscopy and laparoscopy, which enables the physician to diagnose and correct problems in the uterus and pelvic cavity

Initial treatment

Once the evaluation process is complete, we will develop a customized treatment plan based on your diagnosis, age and goals. Initial treatment options may include:

  • Ovulation induction using fertility medications
  • Timed intercourse cycles
  • Intrauterine inseminations (IUI)
  • Donor sperm
  • Surgical treatment including hysteroscopy, laparoscopy, fibroid surgery and removal of endometriosis

With every step, we will work with you to make sure you understand the procedures and the chances of a successful outcome. Our goal is to help you be an active, informed and empowered patient.
