You may consider visiting a clinic specializing in reproductive medicine
well before you’re ready to start your family. By having fertility
assessments conducted now, you can make informed decisions regarding your
family planning in the future. For example, female fertility services
may include assessments of ovarian reserve, which is the number of eggs
present in the ovaries. A Fertility Specialist can perform blood tests
to determine a person’s normal hormonal fluctuations. Women can
also have their medical information thoroughly reviewed and they may decide
to freeze their eggs if pregnancy later in life is planned.
Men can also benefit from undergoing fertility assessments at a reproductive
center. Male fertility services may include the assessment of semen, including
volume, motility, concentration, and sperm count. Sometimes, an in-depth
semen analysis is called for, which includes computer analysis and tests
for anti-sperm antibodies. Men who are under the age of 40 and plan to
have children later on may freeze their sperm to improve the chances of
a healthy pregnancy.
