Through the Microscope: A close-up look at the basic elements of fertility

A complete medical evaluation is recommended if you are unable to conceive after 1 year of unprotected intercourse, or 6 months of unprotected intercourse if you or your partner are/is over the age of 35. Time is an increasingly important factor after 35 years of age, especially for your female partner. An evaluation should be performed earlier if male or female infertility risk factors exist (family history of infertility, exposure to gonadotoxins, history of undescended testicle, etc.) or if you simply question your fertility potential.

The purpose of the evaluation is to identify conditions contributing to infertility that are either potentially reversible, meaning we can assist you in achieving a pregnancy in a conventional manner, or irreversible and better suited to assisted reproductive technologies. This will be your first and most important step in diagnosis and treatment. A careful and in-depth preliminary evaluation will allow our team to select the most appropriate, cutting-edge treatment options available, tailored to your unique case and needs.
