Infertility work-up procedure
Many different things can cause childlessness. If a couple has tried to achieve pregnancy for one year (or six months if the woman is older than 35) it is a good idea to investigate the reasons. The first step is to do an infertility work-up procedure.
During a work-up procedure, among other things, the woman’s egg reserve is measured and analyzed. The quality and motility of the sperm is also examined. Thereafter the most suitable treatment method for best possible result is presented to and discussed with the couple. The age of the woman, how long the infertility has been known as well as the factors behind the infertility are taken into consideration. Women under 30 years old usually still have a good chance of becoming pregnant while women who are closer to 40 are short on time.
Individual treatment means always considering the unique needs and desires of every couple when choosing treatment method. All of Livio’s clinics perform work-up procedures. You may also go to your gynaecologist to do a fertility examination. A fertility examination takes 2-4 weeks.
