For men, a semen analysis is the first step. A semen analysis will discover if the quantity, shape and motility of sperm are normal.
Infertility due to abnormal sperm can be treated through:
- IUI using washed sperm and inserting a concentrated amount directly into the uterus
- IVF using ICSI - where a sperm is directly injected into the egg
For women, testing can be more rigorous.
- Blood work to evaluate hormone levels
- Ultrasound to examine the reproductive organs
Operative procedures may be warranted
Hysteroscopy - examination of the uterine cavity
Laparoscopy - examination of the uterus, fallopian tubes and ovaris
These procedures evaluate the shape and condition of a woman's uterus and verify her fallopian tubes are not blocked. If tubes are blocked, IVF treatment is recommended. Abnormal conditions of the uterus - such as fibroids - often require corrective surgery.
