Frequently asked questions
We always adapt the fertilitycheck to your needs, but normally the fertilitycheck includes
- blood tests to map your hormone levels (including AMH and FSH), your general health status and risk of contamination.
- medical history
- gynecological examination
- ultrasound examination of the uterus and ovaries
examination of fallopian tube function
The examinations performed:
- semen examination at the laboratory
- with reduced sperm quality, hormone samples are also taken.
- sometimes there will also be an examination of external genitalia, especially the testicles and spermatic cord, as well as the prostate gland in regards to infection or nodules
At Medicus our sperm analysis has been made to asses not only that you have sperm, but also factors that can affect the quality of your sperm. From these results we can create a treatmentplan to potentially improve your spermquality and give you the best outcome. You can read more about it here.
Du have to be sexual abstinent for a minimum of 2 days, but no longer than 3 days before the sample is provided. Too short or too long abstinence can affect the sample and the assessment of it. You can provide the sample at the clinic or at home. If you provide it at home,y you can buy sample tubes/urine tubes at the pharmacie. In addition we must have the sample in the lab within 30 minutes after the sample has been provided. The sample should be stored warm during transport to the clinic, e.g . in the armpit.
We know, and collaborate with gynecologists in most places in the country and can often set up a plan where tests and physical examinations can be done near where you live. We are happy to combine this with a digital consultation where we plan this together.
The examinations are performed by one of our experienced gynecologists. The samples that are taken are analyzed in the lab by our embryologists.
Some may experience that they have not always recieved good enough answers, even though they have undergone a fertilitycheck/assessment previously. Then you are welcome to a new assessment with us.
If you know you want treatment and have already taken a fertility check somewhere else, we can normally use those test results without you needing another fertility check. In some cases, if it has been a long time since the test samples were taken, we will need to do a new hormone sample from the woman or a new sperm sample from the man, so we can have the information we need to start your treatment.
You can take the blood test at our clinic, at your regular doctors office or at the laboratory at the hospital. Normally it is not necessary to book an appointment to have blood tests.
The consultation itself takes only 30-60 minutes. If you have taken a blood- and/or sperm test in advance, all the test results will normally be available at this consultation and you will have answers and advice on the sam day as the consultation.
We have a short waiting time to have a fertilitycheck. With us, you can start when you want to.
