Diagnosis is the first and foremost important step towards building your personal treatment plan. It also helps us to determine more accurately the origin of infertility in a couple (male/female). As a whole, this sounds invasive, but its not really the case. Most of these questions can be answered by analysis of semen and few other enquiries like:
- how long the individual (couple) have tried to conceive
- simple questions regarding menstrual cycle
- and any recent weight gains or losses.
Age plays as important role mainly in female fertility. Studies have shown that female fertility reduces with age and this might also be a factor that impacts outcome of an IVF treatment. As overwhelming as it might sound, these are factors that helps tailor out the best treatment plan for you.
At GMS IVF we ensure to look at infertility from both Male and Female perspective. We use modern and advanced diagnosis to create treatment plan tailored to each specific case.

For Diagnosis we use modern testing methods like:
- An examination of the fallopian tubes using Hysterosalpingography (HSG).
- Hysterosalpingography is a procedure that examines the fallopian tubes and shows the condition of the endometrium in the uterine cavity. The test can also uncover fallopian tube malformations or developmental abnormalities. The method includes injecting of a contrast agent into the uterus, which enters the fallopian tubes, and then spills out into the body cavity if the fallopian tubes are permeable enough. An X-ray is taken to see the contrast in the body cavity. This method makes it possible to see fallopian tube malformations which can cause tubal obstructions leading to infertility.
- A fallopian tube ultrasound, also known as a hysterosalpingo-contrast-sonography (HyCoSy), is one of the fastest and the safest types of examinations. To improve visibility, during the procedure sodium chloride is injected into the cervix, allowing it to enter the fallopian tubes, and then track the solution using the ultrasound.
- Genetic testing makes the risk of unsuccessful fertilization attempts, gestation issues, or genetic abnormalities in the child as low as possible.
If more specific information or data is necessary, a doctor can recommend additional tests which also can be done at our fertility clinic — we have both highly professional specialists and modern equipment necessary for this purpose.
