Fertility Tests For the Woman

A female work-up is necessary to determine that there is not a female fertility problem in addition to the (potential) male infertility problem.  Blood work is necessary to determine normal hormone levels and that there are no other causes for fertility problems.  Part of a female infertility work-up also includes a hysterosalpingogram which is an X-ray of the uterus and fallopian tubes and allows visualization of the inside of the uterus and tubes.  

Once the blood tests and results of the hysterosalpingogram are complete, most times you will be provided with a definite answer as to  whether or not there is a FEMALE infertility factor.  This will assist you in deciding what your next step in creating a family will be.

And what to do...

The Clomid citrate challenge test is also an essential part of a fertility work-up, even if the reason is 
"male infertilityI"

-Each pill is 50mg's, take two pills a day for the next 5 days
-On day 11, go to the doctors office for  final blood test (FSH only), and that is the end of the test.
