INFERTILITY SCREENING IN BANGKOK
Understanding Infertility Screening
Infertility screening or a fertility test for couples is a comprehensive set of medical evaluations and tests aimed at identifying the causes of infertility in individuals or couples who have been unable to conceive after a year of regular, unprotected intercourse.
At Vejthani Hospital’s VFC Center in Bangkok, Thailand, the infertility screening process is comprehensive and tailored to each individual’s medical background. This evaluation begins with a detailed review of your and your spouse’s medical histories, including any past illnesses, surgeries, and drug therapies, which might be linked to infertility issues. It also considers factors like menstrual cycle patterns, contraception usage, lubricant use during intercourse, and any stress-related disorders. Additionally, the screening delves into specific reproductive and hormonal conditions such as galactorrhea disease and hirsutism, as well as changes in body weight and male sexual health.
The physical examination at our center is equally thorough. It includes assessments of height, weight, arm span, hair distribution, and breast development. For males, it involves a detailed examination of the penis and testicles, including their size, shape, and overall appearance, and checks for conditions like varicose veins in the scrotum or abnormalities in the urethra. This meticulous approach ensures a holistic understanding of potential fertility issues, aiding in accurate diagnosis and effective treatment planning.
What Causes Infertility?
Infertility can stem from a variety of causes, often involving complex interactions between genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors. In women, common causes include issues with ovulation, fallopian tube damage or blockage, and endometriosis. For men, infertility is frequently linked to problems with sperm production or delivery. Factors like age, smoking, excessive alcohol use, stress, poor diet, and being overweight or underweight can also impact fertility in both sexes.
Am I A Candidate For Screening?
Knowing when to get screened for infertility largely depends on individual circumstances and specific health factors. Here are some general guidelines to consider:
- Duration of Trying to Conceive: If you have been trying to conceive for over a year without success, it’s recommended to undergo infertility screening. This duration is reduced to six months if the woman is over the age of 35, due to the decrease in fertility that occurs with age.
- Irregular Menstrual Cycles: Women with irregular, very painful, or absent menstrual cycles should consider an infertility check. These can be signs of conditions like polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) or endometriosis, which can affect fertility.
- Known Medical Conditions: If you or your partner have known health issues that can affect fertility, such as hormonal imbalances, previous reproductive surgeries, or conditions like endometriosis in women or issues with sperm count or quality in men, it’s prudent to seek screening.
- Age Considerations: Women over the age of 35 and men over 40 might consider earlier screening, as fertility declines with age.
- History of Miscarriages: Multiple miscarriages could be a sign of an underlying fertility issue, warranting a check.
- Lifestyle Factors: Factors like significant weight fluctuations, excessive alcohol consumption, smoking, or a history of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) can impact fertility and are reasons to consider screening.
- Family History: A family history of fertility issues can also be a reason for early screening.
