Step One: Infertility Evaluation
At Coastal Fertility Specialists the first step in the Ovulation Induction and Intrauterine Insemination (OI/IUI) process is a complete infertility evaluation. That evaluation typically includes a semen analysis, hysterosalpingogram, female hormone testing on the 3rd day of the menstrual cycle and a ultrasound. This approach helps us identify all of the causes of infertility and helps the physicians individualize your ovarian stimulation protocol based upon patient age, infertility diagnosis, ovarian reserve testing, and prior treatments.
Your infertility evaluation will typically take less than a month. Once this is complete you will then be able to start your treatment.
