General infertility tests
Infertility may be brought about by a variety of factors. When establishing a course of treatment, it is essential to accurately identify infertility factors. A number of tests are conducted to that end:
Ovulatory factors: Follicular growth and ovulation are checked by ultrasonic diagnostics, and an endocrinological test is carried out by measuring circulating hormones. Anti-Mullerian hormones (AMH), an important marker of ovarian reserve, are also measured.
Fallopian tube factors:The patency of fallopian tubes and the presence or otherwise of adhesion within the pelvis are examined by uterosalpingography.
Male factors:Various sperm-related parameters, such as sperm concentration, the motility rate and speed, are measured using the computer assisted sperm analysis (CASA). In addition, for more thorough tests, it is possible to comprehensively judge the insemination capacity of sperms by such tests as the Kruger’s Strict Criteria and Swim-up Test.
Immunity factors:Immunological infertility is examined using postcoital testing and by measuring antisperm antibodies.
Male Infertility Test
In addition to male infertility tests mentioned above, endocrine tests, ultrasonography and azoospermia-related genetic test, and so on are carried out.
Male infertility medical specialists conduct optimal tests in accordance with conditions of individual patients to find appropriate treatment.
Endoscopic Test (Laparoscopy, Hysteroscopy, Salpingoscopy)
When general infertility tests alone are not sufficient, endoscopic tests are conducted. Laparoscopy is conducted under anesthesia, with an endoscope inserted into the abdominal cavity through a small 3mm diameter hole, in order to thoroughly observe the conditions of the uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes, and the peritoneum. It is also possible to examine the patency of fallopian tubes by chromotubation. Hysteroscopy can be conducted as an outpatient procedure. A fine fiber scope is fed into the uterine cavity to search for polyps and uterine fibroids or the adhesion within the uterine cavity.
The above tests may be conducted individually, but as a more comprehensive test, an integrated endoscopic examination (triple scope examination) is also conducted with the addition of salpingoscopy (wherein, during laparoscopy, a fine endoscope is inserted into the fallopian tube to observe the condition inside the fallopian tube) to the laparoscopy and hysteroscopy.
