If a couple is unable to conceive a baby after one year of regular and unprotected sexual intercourse, it can be considered as an infertility evaluation. A standard evaluation of fertility includes various tests including medical and physical, sexual histories of both partners and other tests like semen analysis etc.
Laparoscopy is a diagnostic procedure or surgical treatment which is performed for examining the organs inside the abdomen. It is also termed as diagnostic laparoscopy. In this procedure, an instrument called a laparoscope is used that has a light and a camera on it. The light and the camera on the device enables the doctor to see and observe your abdominal organs easily. This procedure is typically used for identifying and diagnosing the actual cause of pain in the abdomen or pelvis or miscarriage. The doctors mostly recommend this procedure to examine the inner organs, including the liver, appendix, gallbladder, stomach, spleen, colon, pancreas, and the reproductive organs. Some of the reasons for diagnostic laparoscopy include unexplained infertility, unexplained Pelvic Pain, and any pelvic infection in the medical history
Hysteroscopy refers to a procedure that allows the healthcare provider to look inside the uterus of a woman for diagnosing and treating the causes of abnormal bleeding. The hysteroscopy procedure is performed by inserting a device called Hysteroscopy, a thin, lighted tube into the vagina to examine the inside of the uterus and the cervix.
Sonography is a medical test that uses sound waves of higher frequencies for capturing live images from the inside of your body. It is also termed as an Ultrasound. Ultrasonography allows your health care provider to see problems with organs, tissues, and vessels without making an incision. This procedure is mainly used during pregnancy to view the fetus.
A Doppler ultrasound is defined as an imaging test that uses high-frequency sound waves for showing blood moving through blood vessels. A regular ultrasound also uses sound waves in order to create images of the structure of the inner body, but it cannot show blood flow. The test of doppler ultrasound works by measuring sound waves reflected from moving objects like red blood cells. This is referred to as the Doppler effect. Some of the common types of Doppler test include Color Doppler, Spectral Doppler, Power Doppler, Continuous Wave Doppler, and Duplex Doppler. This test allows your health care provider in identifying the conditions that are blocking or reducing the flow of the blood. It can also be used for diagnosing conditions like heart diseases.
Intrauterine Insemination is a technique that includes the placement of viable sperm directly into the woman's uterine cavity while she is ovulating. This procedure is performed when there are abnormalities in the sperm-like low sperm count, low motility etc. The goal of this fertility treatment is to increase the count of sperms in a male that would reach the fallopian tube in a woman and subsequently result in an increased chance of or conception or fertilisation.
IVF-ICSI is a specialised form of in-vitro fertilisation treatment that is used in the cases of male infertility. It is typically used after repeated IVF failures after oocyte preservation. ICSI stands for Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection, a procedure considered to be an addition to IVF. It is a technique in which a single sperm is selected and then injected into an egg directly. This procedure results in a higher rate of fertilisation, in comparison to that of IVF. If the sperm parameters are weak such as low motility, low concentration, poor morphology etc., it indicates the use of this procedure. If you are suffering from male infertility, we recommend you consult Dr. Ajit Mopkar, a Gynaecologist, Obstetrician, and Infertility Specialist in Goa, Maharashtra.
