Fertility Tests

With one in six Irish couples experiencing trouble conceiving, it makes sense to familiarise yourself with your fertility status. Fertility tests typically involve investigations for both the male and female partner, as well as taking a comprehensive medical history. The results of these investigations will be used to make a diagnosis and recommendations for treatment if required.

If you have been trying to conceive for more than 12 months (or 6 months if the woman is 35 or older) without success a good first step is to see a fertility specialist who can assess your overall reproductive health and conduct some simple tests to identify any underlying issues.
