Fertility Evaluation is an individualized evaluation done by a fertility specialist. It is done to ease the patient of his/her worries and provide useful information and answers related to the reproductive potential of a person. Any standard fertility evaluation includes a physical examination, medical examination, and sexual history of the individual. The complete evaluation and diagnosis helps to access the fertility factors and enables the doctor to focus more on the treatment to make one conceive.
Some of the factors which the fertility evaluation will take into account are:
Physical Health: Physical health stands for different illnesses, birth defects, and anatomical disorders that can interfere with a healthy pregnancy.
Age of Female: An extremely important consideration while evaluating fertility is the age of the female. Conception is largely dependent on the quality of a woman’s eggs, and her egg quality & production. One of the harshest truths of life is that the egg quantity and quality decline with age. A woman’s egg count declines with age. At puberty, from 2 million eggs, she has only 300,000. By mid-30s and further, the eggs remaining are of lower quality and lower fertility potential. The reason behind this is, that as eggs age, they are likely to have more abnormal chromosomes leading to a failure of the fertilized egg to develop and thereby increasing the chances of miscarriage. With age, the production of important hormones like estrogen and progesterone essential for establishing pregnancy may also get affected.
Male Fertility Health: Fertility evaluation will also assess the male sperm and the male’s reproductive history and lifestyle. Some types of information required for the evaluation include the male’s habits and medications being taken, etc.
Evaluating Male Sperm: An analysis of the sperm can provide a lot of answers relating to the fertility struggles. The major properties which can be measured through a sperm test include:
- Semen Volume: If the ejaculate produced is lower than normal, it indicates blockage of seminal vesicles. This can be due to retrograde ejaculation. In retrograde ejaculation, the sperm enters the bladder instead of exiting the urethra.
- Morphology: This is done to check the percentage of normally shaped sperm as a poorly shaped sperm may be unable to fertilize the female egg.
- Motility: This is to check the percentage of sperm that is alive, healthy, and forward-moving as the sperm needs to unite with the egg in the fallopian tube.
