Couple's Fertility Test FAQs
What is an Advanced Ultrasound Scan?
The female partner will get a fertility ultrasound scan which takes around 20 minutes and can be performed on any day of the cycle. This fertility test looks at the number of follicles present within the ovaries, also known as the antral follicle count (AFC).
We'll also look at the quality of the womb lining and checking blood flow to the follicles and uterus which will give us a good estimate of your ovarian reserve.
What is a Semen Analysis?
The male partner will be asked to produce a sperm sample in one of our private sample rooms, which will then be analysed by our experienced embryologists in the laboratory.
The semen analysis looks at sperm motility, as well as assessing the density and morphology. Your results will be available the same day.
Abstinence must be observed for 2-5 days prior to the appointment.
What happens in a consultation?
After both partners have had their fertility tests, you will then have a joint consultation with one of our experienced fertility consultants to discuss your results, answer any questions you might have and get advice.
If you have already had fertility treatment or are seeking fertility treatment, it is more appropriate to book an Initial Consultation and Scan which will include a potential fertility treatment protocol. A treatment plan not included in the couples fertility test.
