Diagnosis of Infertility

It has long been well known that one out of every seven marriages turns out to be childless, though a couple wants to have children. In half of the cases, the cause of the problem is either a man or a woman or both. Modern medicine can help many of the infertile couples.

Targeted check-ups of both partners should be carried out in order to start the necessary treatment at an early stage. This is especially true for women over 35 years old, as this is when the ovaries begin to be depleted and the number of eggs decreases.

Approximately one third of female infertility is caused by a blockage in one or both fallopian tubes. Several techniques are suitable for the diagnosis of this functional pathology.

On the one hand, it is X-ray examination, on the other hand, it is laparoscopy with chromopertubation, when a blue dye solution is injected into the uterine cavity with an adapter. The blue solution passes through the fallopian tubes into the abdominal cavity and is visible during laparoscopy. If the blue solution is not visualized, this means that the fallopian tube is blocked. Laparoscopy is the most accurate way to diagnose potential problems, but it requires a small surgical intervention under general anesthesia. If it is necessary to detect uterine malformations, adhesions, endometrial implants or small myomas, laparoscopy is used.
