Infertility is often a multifactorial problem and in any given couple may be related to the female partner, the male partner or the combination of both. Here we look at the lab tests, examinations and procedures, which help in diagnosing and predicting the fertility of the couple.
A basic infertility evaluation begins with a thorough medical history of the couple and a physical examination is routinely done.
The workup varies and depends upon the medical history and the ages of the patients involved. Only the essential and relevant tests are prescribed with an emphasis on cost effectiveness of the investigation.
