Fertility Diagnosis

Personalized Reproductive Care

The first steps of your journey begin with finding out the cause or issue of your fertility problems. The physician will meet with you to review your previous medical records. By assessing your previous medical records, we are able to avoid any unnecessary tests, and save time in coming to a diagnosis. A number of tests will be conducted, which can be broken up into the following main categories listed below. These tests could be described in the overarching theme as your Fertility Status Assessment (FSA). FSA includes assessment of your ovarian reserve, which measures the capacity of your ovary to make eggs that are capable of fertilization resulting in a healthy and successful pregnancy. There are also several genetic tests that gives the you and the physician a variety of information such as, the ability to predict ovarian insufficiency, screening of diseases, and testicular dysfunction.

Several of these tests could be covered by your provincial or private insurance plan. Speak to your doctor to inquire about it further.

Hormone/Blood testing:
We withdraw a minimal amount of blood to test a large variety of factors in men and women. These tests will look at several factors such as, hormones that help eggs and sperm develop, hormones that gives clues about the quality and quantity of your eggs, and helps us time your ovulation for maximal efficiency.

Male semen testing:
Half of fertility cases pertain to male-related issues. At Juno, we find it important to look at both partners. We will use state-of-the-art technology to examine sperm concentration, motility, movement, shape, and sperm antibodies that could be harming sperm.

Fertility potential analysis:
Plans for starting a family can be incredibly difficult when balancing a career. Often times, individuals and couples delay having a child while they focus on their career. However, it is a well-known that fertility potential decreases as individuals age, and for women this decline is more rapid due to autoimmune, inflammatory or genetic conditions. Furthermore, some individuals despite being perfectly healthy, carry in their genes a defect that may lead to a birth of an affected child. Thus, in addition to your physical and hormonal analysis, we’ll also conduct a thorough serological and genetic analysis that will help us determine your current and future fertility potential and help decide your treatment options.
