Initial Steps

Fortunately for many couples experiencing infertility, the testing process is relatively straightforward. The initial visit usually includes a number of questions about your sexual and reproductive histories. However, if your doctor cannot determine the cause of your condition from the first round of tests he/she will have to perform additional tests until a diagnosis is made. These subsequent tests are different for women and men and will likely require additional visits.

Knowing what to expect in the first consultation visit may make this experience a little easier. This section outlines the typical tests you and your partner will have during infertility evaluation. There is also information about testing options you can do at home.
