what kind of tests can doctors do 2 diagnose and determine the cause of infertility?
he has been checked. all is ok with him. now its my turn

for women they can do blood tests and vaginal ultrasounds to begin with, and for the men they to a sperm sample... it is just as likely for the male to be the cause of infertility as the female, so don't overlook that. good luck!  (+ info)

How much do infertility test costs if insurance will NOT cover it?

My husband and I are having problems conceiving. My periods are SUPER irregular, so my doctor has advised that I begin infertility tests. My husband and I are both healthy 24 years olds. Because of my lack of periods I would think that I could take Clomid or something, so I could ovulate. My doctor wants to do all kinds of tests and our insurance will not cover infertility tests and/or infertility drugs, so how much would I expect to pay out of pocket for all this to be done?

Thank You!

What article about infertility would you like to read?

I'm looking for topics that are of interest. So far I've written about holidays & infertility, coping with infertility, surviving the 2-week-wait, and tips for parents of children who are coping with infertility. Any ideas?

I would really love something that would compare and contrast going through the rigorous infertility treatments, waiting, and wondering with adoption.  (+ info)

What are some causes of infertility in men and women and are they treatable?

Just looking at the different things people might think can casue infertility and wether or not they know if it's treatable. And if you read an answer that you know isn't correct PLEASE let us know and give us some sources to rely on in case WE PANIC! I don't want a bunch of people freaking out or thinkin they'll never have babies!

Honestly Smoking and stress can both be a factor if you smoke both of you should stop if your both under stress (which u probably are worrying about infertility) then try to relax!  (+ info)

What are the chances of infertility for women who have monthly ovarian cysts?

I'm going in for my first ultrasound this week to see if there are any existing ovarian cysts that I may have. I've had terribly painful cysts for the last two/three months, with pain lasting a minimum of four hours. I'm only seventeen, and would like to raise a family someday. What are my odds of infertility? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

I was diagnosed at 20 with PCOS and I am now 25 years old. I have had alot of trouble getting pregnant. I HAVE been pregnant 2 times since the diagnosis, unfortunatly the 1st ended in miscarriage and the 2nd baby was still born Christmas Day 2009. NEITHER WHERE DUE TO THE CYSTS. We have been trying for 8 months now with no luck. Probably due to my cysts acting up and I havent had my period in the last 8 months either. If you are worried about it, I found some remedies that help concieve. Friends of mine have used it with real success, I have not tried it yet but am hopeful Its call Fertility Blend, you can find it at most GNC stores. All will be okay, either way. Good Luck!  (+ info)

How long is the process for infertility testing before the doctor start treatment?

I have infertility issue(s), one which is most obvious is that I do not ovulate. I did some lab work incl glucose and everything came back negative. Now I will do a ultrasound. I just want to know how long is this process going to be or a general idea from experiences. Thanks

This will vary depending on your Specialist and what tests they feel are needed. They also take into account how long you have been trying and your age. My partner and I were trying for 12 months, Im 30 his 36 after about 2 months of tests our specialist put me on clomid to help things along after 5 months of clomid we just found out were pregnant!!!!! No matter how long your tested poked and prodded it is all worth it when you get that positive result. Good luck x o x o  (+ info)

If testicles are exposed to bleach will infertility follow?

A good friend of mine had poison ivy on his inner thighs and testicles. He unfortunately treated the open sores and the entire area with straight bleach not diluted with water. He left the bleach on for about 15 minutes before washing it off. (as you can imagine it was very painful) The poison ivy did clear up, but is there a chance he might suffer from infertility?

Yes there is a chance - hopefully for all of us - that he will suffer from infertility. However, it may not be because of the bleach.  (+ info)

What are some name ideas for an infertility charity?

I am planning on starting a charity for infertile women that will help raise money for women trying to conceive their first child.

I myself have struggled with infertility for 8 years and the cost is just outrageous. My goal is to help other women who cannot afford the treatment.

Thanks in advance!!!!

I think this is a fantastic idea and I really hope it works out for you. I also know the pain and financial difficulty of ttc for a long time. I'm surprised no one has thought of this earlier. I cant think of any names but if I do i'll let u know. I just wanted to let you know how great and much appreciated your idea woud be. If you need any other help i'm in. you can email me at [email protected]
Good luck with your idea and ttc  (+ info)

Is it true that infertility issues start at 27?

I had a rude mom on here tell me that if I waited too much longer (I am 26) to have a kid I would wind up with infertility issues because it starts at 27!?! I really think she is wrong, but now I am worried! What do you think? Have you read any research?

Fertility issues can start earlier than 27. Age-related infertility could be said to start at 27 because that's when fertility starts declining, but that doesn't mean that anyone over the age of 27 will necessarily have problems. I wouldn't worry too much. There is a lot of misinformation that gets spread and people can be really rude sometimes.  (+ info)
