Learn about important fertility tests on Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day
Our Tennessee fertility clinic provides fertility evaluations that can reveal genetic abnormalities and issues with a patient’s reproductive system. These evaluations are an important first step in helping patients conceive their healthy rainbow baby.
Preconception genetic testing. This test helps the doctor discover if a woman or her partner has chromosomal abnormalities or other genetic conditions. These issues could cause a pregnancy to end in a miscarriage.
Bloodwork. Blood tests provide helpful information about a patient’s immune system and reproductive hormones. They can also uncover the presence of issues like blood clotting complications or sexually transmitted diseases.
Ultrasound. A transvaginal ultrasound can help the doctor determine if the woman has uterine fibroids, polyps or other uterine challenges. In some cases, the doctor recommends more extensive testing after the ultrasound.
On Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day, we want women to know that when they are ready to continue building their families, we can support them through each step of the process.
We provide fertility treatments that help reduce the chance of a miscarriage
After reviewing the results of a patient’s fertility tests, the doctor works with them to develop a customized treatment plan.
Hysteroscopy. Doctors can use this procedure to correct uterine issues like fibroids, polyps and scar tissue.
IVF with PGT. Patients can increase the likelihood that the doctor will transfer a healthy embryo into their uterus if they do IVF with PGT. PGT-A allows fertility specialists to determine if an embryo has too few or too many chromosomes. PGT-M screens embryos for genetic defects involving a single gene, like cystic fibrosis and sickle cell disease.
Medication for excessive blood clotting. Doctors sometimes recommend that a patient with autoimmune problems take a medication like aspirin or heparin to help reduce the chance of miscarriage.
Medication for hormonal issues. Medications like Clomid or Femara can support women with certain ovulatory disorders.
