All successful fertility treatments start with a thorough diagnosis. Let's find out what's been going on, and decide what the best course of action is.
We want to know about any changes to the menstrual cycle, how long you've been trying, any relavent medical information and a few other pieces of information that will help us weave together an idea of where the fertility issue could lie.
Cycle monitoring helps couples prepare for “sexual intercourse at the optimal time." With this method, it is important that the fallopian tubes are unobstructed and fully operational and that semen quality is normal.
A sperm analysis is typically one of the very first steps in diagnosis. We'll examine the shape, number and speed of any sperm in our laboratory to see if this is where the problem lies.
If the embryo is not sufficiently protected by certain antibodies, it can be identified as a foreign body by the woman's immune system and rejected. The result is recurrent miscarriages or no pregnancy at all. In our laboratories, we perform comprehensive diagnostics to establish the possible immunological causes for conception issues.
This form of diagnosis is used for the selection of good embryos for use in IVF and ICSI treatments. Fertilised eggs are examined in order to rule out hereditary diseases or incorrect chromosome set distribution that could pose a threat to the pregnancy.
