When Should I Seek Infertility Testing?

At RBA, we possess an extensive body of experience in helping people achieve their pregnancy goals. As such, your chances of becoming pregnant will increase when you consult with one of our fertility specialists. We can determine whether testing and treatment — and which types — are needed for your unique circumstances.

Typically, it’s a good idea to see a fertility specialist if you have been unsuccessfully trying to get pregnant for one year or more. However, if a woman is over the age of 35, and has been unsuccessful after six months, we recommend scheduling a visit.

  • For a woman to become pregnant, her body must release a healthy, mature egg that travels to her uterus. There, this egg becomes fertilized by male sperm, and it implants itself in her uterus. However, if any of these steps are unable to occur, pregnancy likely cannot happen without assistance. Common causes of female infertility include:

    • Diminished ovarian reserve
    • Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS)
    • Tubal disease/blockage
    • Endometriosis
    • Other disorders of ovulation
    • Unexplained infertility
  • Men can be born with or develop infertility problems. Common infertility challenges for men may include:

    • Varicocele, or large veins in the testicle(s)
    • Infections in the testicles
    • An undescended testicle
    • Low sperm count
    • Blocked or damaged sperm
    • Hormone concerns or imbalances
    • Genetic abnormalities
  • At RBA, our physicians work collaboratively with you to tailor a custom fertility plan. We are here to help you decide the best course of action to take when it comes to your personal pregnancy goals, and your specific life situation. You can always feel free to contact us with questions or for support, as you travel the road to starting “your” family.

  • At RBA, our fertility testing is unique to your body and circumstances, and our cost and payment options are, as well. Therefore, checking in with our financial specialists for help and information is a great idea.

    Pricing fertility testing is not as simple as just handing out a standardized price tag. While your insurance providers may cover some – or all – of the fertility test process, not all testing procedures are identical. So again, we encourage you to contact our financial specialists for more information.
