Fertility diagnostic testing occurs in conjunction with or shortly after your initial consultation. In some cases, patients have diagnostic insurance coverage that can be used to cover some or all testing needed. It is important to note that some insurance companies stipulate that diagnostic coverage is only available for those who have not already sought fertility treatment. This means that if a patient has already been prescribed Clomid by their OB/GYN to try and achieve pregnancy they might not be able to use the diagnostic coverage because they have already received medication used to treat infertility. Our insurance coordinators can help you navigate your plan and what your coverage options are available to you.
Fertility Diagnostic Testing can include:
- Ovarian Reserve Testing
- Blood work to test hormones Follicle Stimulate Hormone (FSH), Estradial (E2) and Anti-Mullerian Hormone (AMH). When these levels are too high or too low, it can indicate a lower fertility potential.
- Antral Follicle Count (AFC) ultrasound gives a good indication of the number of resting follicle you have during your current menstrual cycle. There is an ideal range based on your age that the physician will review with you.
- Semen Analysis looks at the count, shape, and movement of a man’s sperm.
- A Saline Sonohysterogram (SHG) also known as SIS (saline infusion sonography) or and an Hysterosalpingogram (HSG) maybe performed to rule out blockages or masses in the fallopian tubes and uterus.
