Further investigation

Tests for the female
Tests for the male


After your first appointment with your consultant, we may need to do other tests. Some of these tests may already have been done before you were referred to the Regional Fertility Centre.

These may include the following.

Tests for the female

  • Further hormone measurements
  • Dye test of the fallopian tubes
  • Laparoscopy to investigate the fallopian tubes

Tests for the male

  • Hormone measurements
  • Repeat or more detailed semen analysis
  • Testicular biopsy

Please note: Not every patient will require all tests. You will be given a personal plan at your first visit that will explain why some tests are or are not necessary.
