Fertility Assessment Options
There are a variety of tests your provider can perform to assess your fertility as part of your preconception planning. Some of those include:
- Blood work and urine tests
- Ultrasounds (including saline infusion sonograms)
- Assessments for tubal patency (unblocked fallopian tubes)
These tests can check several factors, including progesterone levels, thyroid function, prolactin levels, and your ovarian reserve (egg supply). You can also undergo a urine test to detect an increase in luteinizing hormone (LH) in the uterus that indicates when you’re near ovulation.
