A fertility assessment is a medical investigation which assesses your ability to conceive. It is sometimes referred to as a fertility test or fertility MOT. This assessment allows your doctor to detect if there are any problems which may be affecting your ability to have a child. If an issue is found that requires fertility treatment, a fertility assessment is an important diagnostic tool which helps you and your doctor plan your treatment safely and effectively.
A fertility assessment is suitable for couples or individuals who are considering a fertility treatment or who just wish to gain an understanding of their fertility for the future.
At IVI, we offer a Diagnostic Pack for women who wish to assess their level of fertility.
With IVI, the cost of the Diagnostic Pack is £ 275 . To book, please call us on 0800 52 00 161 or request a call back here .
If you are part of a female couple, we also offer fertility assessments for the same sex couples .
The most common cause of male factor infertility is due to semen abnormalities . For men, a fertility assessment involves a semen analysis , otherwise known as a seminogram . During a semen analysis, a semen sample is analyzed to establish the sperm count (the number of sperm present), sperm motility (how the sperm move) and sperm morphology (the shape of the sperm).
In some cases, sperm quality is affected by certain lifestyle factors, such as drinking alcohol, smoking or being overweight. Your consultant can discuss your results with you and advise whether changing lifestyle habits could increase your potential to conceive.
With IVI, a semen analysis is included in the Diagnostic Pack Plus or it can be booked separately for £ 150 . To book, please call us on 0800 52 00 161 or request a call back here.
