Learn about your fertility to start your year off right
Fertility is something most people don’t think about until they have a problem with it. However, getting fertility testing before any issues pop up can empower you with knowledge. Fertility Specialists of Texas wants to help you learn about your fertility in 2023, so we’re highlighting the different testing options. We’re also explaining how to get started at our Dallas-Fort Worth fertility center.
Proactive fertility testing can help you learn about your fertility
If you’re interested in learning about your reproductive potential and how fast your biological clock is ticking, we can help. Our Dallas-Fort Worth fertility center offers proactive fertility testing. This type of testing is designed to help people who are not currently trying to conceive learn more about their baseline fertility.
The testing options that are available to you will vary depending on whether you have ovaries or testes.
If you have ovaries, our doctors will typically order bloodwork and a transvaginal ultrasound. Bloodwork provides important information about your hormone levels. An ultrasound lets our team view your ovaries, which can help you learn more about your egg supply.
If you have testes, a semen analysis is the best way to learn about your fertility. This test involves providing a semen sample by masturbating into a sterile container. Lab technicians will then analyze the sample’s sperm count and other characteristics.
Once your test results are available, one of our doctors can help you understand them. You can then use the information to decide if you can wait to start your family or if you should start trying sooner. The results may also encourage you to think about fertility preservation options like egg freezing.
