how will ever doctors find out if a woman and her partner have fertility problems?


shasha - September 8

well, definitely doctors will do some infertility checkup. physical examination is involved during checkups.


bless - September 8

exactly that will be the first move, that will be their basis to know if it's infertile or not.


heidi - September 8

it is better that the couple will go together to the doctor to consult. a checkup also with your partner is best to do so you will know if your partner also has this kind of problem.


keisha - September 8

you are right heidi. this is something that a couple would have to do first before planning to have a kid. the preparation is important.


viktoria - September 8

actually, when a couple would come together for a checkup, the doctor would ask for both partners' health and sexual histories. sometimes this can find problem.


deborah - September 8

yeah, but most of the time, this isn't a good basis then. the doctor will still need to do more tests for more accurate results.


]]kelly[[ - September 8

i would suggest that before anything else, you as a women will have to do some step to find out to if you are fertile or what.


dorphie - September 8

for men, doctors usually begin by testing the semen. they will look at the number, shape, and movement of the sperm. sometimes doctors also suggest testing the level of a man's hormones.


nerissa - September 8

aha, that's how doctors do for men. while on women's side, the first step is to find out if she is ovulating each month. we women can track down our ovulation at home.


claudia - September 8

is that so, how can that possibly be? would you mind to give some steps nerissa?


nerissa - September 8

yes sure why not. you can write down some changes in your morning body temperature for several months; write down how your cervical mucus looks for several months.


janice - September 8

you can also use a home ovulation test kit. you can buy those stuffs at drug or grocery stores.


liza - September 8

doctors have this checkup method like checking up ovulation with blood tests. they can even make it through ultrasound of the ovaries. well, if ovulation is normal, there are other fertility tests available.

guys, what do you think about this HYSTEROSALPINGOGRAPHY?


Sharee - September 8

it is an x-ray of the uterus and fallopian tube. actually, doctors inject a special dye into the uterus through the vagina and this dye shows up in the x-ray.


fatima - September 8

how would they know the results? i kind of curious about this method.
