Your answer would greatly help!

you can have normal pregnancy with one ovary.
check your hormones and genetic test to find any problems.
  • for Woman

The first infertility test performed by our infertility testing specialist involves measuring follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH) to establish a baseline. The infertility test is performed on the third day of your cycle. The female infertility testing is performed during your first visit. Your second visit will occur on the day of the LH surge, which is before ovulation in most cases. During your first cycle, it is common for our infertility testing specialist to perform the following tests:

Home test

Home LH urine test kits can be used to see when ovulation occurs. Sometimes a woman's basal body temperature (BBT) is also checked at the same time. For more information, see the topic Fertility Awareness.

Postcoital test

The postcoital test checks a woman's cervical mucus after sex to see whether sperm are alive and able to move normally through the mucus. This test must be done the day before or the day of ovulation. Many doctors question the value of the postcoital test to check for infertility. It is not done very often. For more information, see the topic Postcoital Test.

Pelvic ultrasound

A pelvic ultrasound looks at the size and structure of the uterus and both ovaries. It can also check the condition and size of the ovaries during treatment for infertility. For more information, see the topic Pelvic Ultrasound


A hysterosalpingogram is an X-ray test that looks at the inside of the uterus and the fallopian tubes. The pictures can show a blockage of the fallopian tubes that would prevent an egg from reaching the uterus or prevent sperm from moving into a fallopian tube to join (fertilize) an egg. This test may also see problems on the inside of the uterus that might prevent a fertilized egg from attaching (implanting) to it. For more information, see the topic Hysterosalpingogram.


A sonohysterogram is an ultrasound test that uses saline and ultrasound to look at the female reproductive organs.

Endometrial biopsy

An endometrial biopsy is done to take out a small piece of the uterine lining (endometrium) to see whether the lining has normal changes during the menstrual cycle. For more information, see the topic Endometrial Biopsy.


Laparoscopy is a procedure to look at a woman's pelvic organs (uterus, fallopian tubes, and ovaries) using a thin, lighted scope that is put through a small cut (incision) in the belly. This procedure is used to find cysts, scar tissue (adhesions), fibroids, and infections that can affect fertility. Laparoscopy can also be used to treat conditions, such as endometriosis. Laparoscopy is usually done with general anesthesia. For more information, see the topic Laparoscopy.


Hysteroscopy is a procedure that looks at the lining of the uterus using a thin, lighted scope that is put through the vagina and cervix into the uterus. Hysteroscopy is used to find problems in the uterine lining. Sometimes your doctor can use small tools during the procedure to take out growths or take samples of tissue (biopsy) or open a blocked fallopian tube. For more information, see the topic Hysteroscopy.

for Both :
Antibody blood tests

Antibody blood tests may be done to find antisperm antibodies in blood, semen, or vaginal fluids. Doctors question the value of antibody tests for finding the cause of infertility. For more information, see the topic Antisperm Antibody Test.

Karyotype (chromosome analysis) or genetic test
  • Karyotyping is a blood test that looks for problems in the genetic material (chromosomes) in your cells. Some genetic problems make it hard to become pregnant or cause miscarriages. For more information, see the topic Karyotype Test.
  • Genetic tests may be done to help find the cause of infertility. For more information, refer Genetic Test.


Sperm test: for quality and quantity of sperm


Ultrasound uses sound waves to make a picture of structures inside the body. It may be done to see whether a problem in the testicles is causing a problem with the sperm. For more information, see the topic Testicular Ultrasound.

Testicular biopsy

In rare cases, when men have no sperm in their semen, a testicular biopsy may be done to check the sperm in the man's testicles. For more information, see the topic Testicular Biopsy.
