Fertility screening provides a better understanding on one’s reproductive health. In the case of infertility, fertility screening can indicate the root cause for appropriate treatment to be provided.
Female fertility screening focuses on 3 components:
o Hormonal Blood Tests
To screen for any hormonal abnormality present.
o Pre-conception Tests
To screen for presence of blood abnormalities and infections that may cause complications during pregnancy.
Ultrasound scan of the pelvic area or a Hysterosalpingogram (HSG) allows the physician to assess the fallopian tubes, uterus and ovaries to identify any abnormalities that may affect pregnancy.
