A GOOD DIAGNOSIS: KNOW YOUR FERTILITY POTENTIAL
The vast majority of the cases of infertility can be explained if we look at the 5 key ingredients to achieve conception: eggs, sperm, embryos, Fallopian Tubes (embryo transfer to the uterus) and the endometrium (or receptivity). That is why having a clear vision of the good or bad operation of each of these, it is important to start to look for a pregnancy.
If you make a timely diagnosis, it is possible to understand what we in Latid call FERTILITY POTENTIAL, or the ability of the couple to conceive without difficulty. We explain a bit more what these diagnostic tools with which we work to trace the route to a pregnancy, and, ultimately, a healthy baby in the house.
The ultrasound allows us to evaluate the presence or absence of images suggestive of endometriosis, the morphology of the uterus, the appearance of the endometrium, signs of ovulation or anovulation, the presence of polyps or fibroids and their location. This is done on day 2 or three periods, and also made a count of antral follicles to measure the ovarian reserve of women.
HORMONAL TESTS IN BLOOD
The hormonal tests that are performed to analyze the hormone TSH, FSH, Antimulleriana and estradiol. The hormonal environment is important because they regulate fertility. Hormone Analysis allows us to evaluate the ovarian reserve and detect anovulatory cycles, hyperprolactinemia, hypothyroidism, profiles, polycystic ovary, among others.
The hysterosalpingogram is a diagnostic test very important to evaluate both the potential of fertility, as the assisted reproduction technique that you need to achieve to conceive. It is an X-Ray examination is performed between day 8 and 12 of the menstrual cycle to study the uterus and fallopian Tubes. Remember that the correct reading, and professional, this test is just as important to get an accurate diagnosis.
The semen analysis is the analysis of the sample of sperm of the man which evaluated the physical aspects of the semen, such as volume, pH, viscosity, color. In addition, we studied the number of sperm, their motility, morphology and vitality. This test provides valuable information on the presence of other cells such as macrophages, lymphocytes, leukocytes, bacteria, and fungi, which, depending on their number, they may be the cause of infertility.
Once a diagnosis is made, it is possible to take the right decisions and informed. If you do not detect any problem or obstacle, the couple can begin to work with the security that, at least on a physical level, there is nothing, apparently, that may hinder the conception. On the contrary, if you discover any problems, you can fix previously or she can plan the use of any assisted reproduction technique based on the problems of each pair, maximizing your results. We know that a woman's fertility decreases with time, and that the pursuit of a pregnancy without success, can be a source of much frustration. The advantage to know the fertility potential is that you do not lose such valuable time tested “blind”. Once patients understand the causes of your infertility and why the recommended treatment, decreases anxiety and cope better with the situation.
