The package includes:
1. Two office consultations (in-office or virtual)
2. Review of comprehensive health history (male and female)
3. Infertility Testing (Hormone studies and uterine evaluation)
a. Hormonal Studies (Anti-mullerian, Thyroid Stimulating Hormone and Free Thyroxine, Prolactin): These tests help identify any hormonal imbalance that may impair infertility. There are different hormones in the body that play a role in conception, it is important for your body to produce a specific amount at a precise time during your menstrual cycle for conception to occur naturally.
b. Complete blood count (No diff/Platelet): A complete blood count test measures several components and features of your blood, including: Red blood cells, which carry oxygen, White blood cells, which fight infection, Hemoglobin, the oxygen-carrying protein in red blood cellsHematocrit, the proportion of red blood cells to the fluid component, or plasma in your blood, Platelets, which help with blood clotting
c. Blood type and RH factor
d. Pelvic Ultrasound: An infertility Pelvic US with antral follicular count (AFC) is used to verify that the uterus and both ovaries are present. The shape, size, and the position of the uterus is recorded. Any abnormalities within the uterus such as fibroids are measured and mapped.
e. Sonohysterogram/Saline Infused Sonogram (SIS): is a special kind of ultrasound exam. Normal saline is put into the uterus through the cervix using a thin plastic tube. Sound waves are then used to create images of the lining of the uterus. The fluid helps show more detail than when ultrasound is used alone. SIS can find the underlying cause of many problems such as abnormal uterine bleeding, infertility, and repeated miscarriage. It is able to detect the following:
• Abnormal growths inside the uterus, such as fibroids or polyps, and information about their size and depth
• Scar tissue inside the uterus
• Abnormal uterine shape
• Problems with the lining of the uterus
f. Sonohysterosalpingogram: is a non-radiologic method that can provide valuable information about the fallopian tubes as well as the uterine cavity, with results that are comparable to HSG.
What it detects: Similar to an HSG, a sonohysterosalpingogram assesses fallopian tubes and uterine shape.
How it works: A sonohysterosalpingogram uses sterile saline and air or contrast, which is passed through the cervix into the uterus and visualized by transvaginal ultrasound.
Benefits: Unlike the HSG, this test does not require any exposure to radiation and can be done in the doctor’s office.
***It is best to have Sonohysterogram/Sonohysterosalpingogram done in the day 1 to 12 of the menstrual cycle. This timing reduces the chance that you may be pregnant.
f. Semen Analysis: The semen analysis consists of a series of tests that evaluate the quality and quantity of the sperm, as well as the semen, the fluid that contains them.
e. Follow-up Consultation: is to review the test results and discuss treatment options. The follow-up appointment can be scheduled via Telemedicine.
*** The Sonohysterogram/Sonohysterosalpinogram is included in the $999 Package
