“Most couples would be able to conceive in a year if they
have regular intercourse without the use of contraceptives.
Infertility could be a result of reproductive problems in both
male and female.”

Fertility Assessment

What is a fertility assessment?

Screening prior to trying for a baby can help a couple better understand their reproductive systems and help to identify some factors which can contribute to the success of the process. There are different screenings for male and female.

Dr. Fong Yang will recommend the relevant tests appropriate for your condition upon consultation.

Male Fertility Assessment

  • A simple sperm analysis can determine sperm count, motility and morphology (structure).
  • Laboratory investigations or ultrasound scans to assess if there are obstructions in the sperm delivery system (if needed).
  • Other specialised tests for sperm quality and function (if needed).

Female Fertility Assessment

  • Preliminary tests involve blood tests to investigate if there are any hormonal factors affecting fertility.
  • Ultrasound scans can monitor the ovaries for developing follicles. It would also be possible to detect abnormalities in the womb.
  • A hysterosalpingogram (HSG) can be done to detect any blockage in the fallopian tubes. This procedure, done in the hospital, involves infusing a solution through the cervical cavity. An x-ray would then be done to show if there is any flow of the solution through the tubes.
  • Hysteroscopy and laparoscopy are surgical procedures done in the hospital, using a tiny camera. This allows the doctor to observe the uterus, its surroundings and the ovaries, to see if there are any polyps, fibroids or cysts.
