After your initial consultation with a physician, an individualized, diagnostic plan will be outlined to determine the cause of your infertility. This plan is based on the information provided by your medical history and physical examination. It is designed to focus on and answer many important questions including:
- Are you ovulating?
- Are your fallopian tubes normal?
- Is your uterus receptive to implantation?
- Are the sperm normal in number and in function?
Once your diagnosis is established, a treatment plan will be tailored to suit your personal situation. The recommended approach will depend on your age, diagnosis, the duration of infertility, any previous treatments, and your personal preferences.
The tests performed to diagnose infertility are typically referred to as pre-screening tests. Before you initiate a treatment cycle, it is critical that we identify any potential obstacles to achieving a pregnancy. This assessment is determined by the results of the male and female pre-screening tests. Testing is individualized, every test is not performed on every person.
We encourage you to learn as much as you can about your situation and to be proactive in your own care.

Having a baby should be an easy, uncomplicated, and joyous time. But for those experiencing infertility, the results can be something altogether different. Infertility affects couples as individuals and as partners in a marriage. It is a life crisis that can lead to feelings of loss, frustration, anger and even depression. The most effective way for couples to cope with these natural and normal feelings is to become educated about infertility, investigate thoroughly, and then to make a fully informed decision about their fertility care.
There are no guarantees with any fertility treatment but there is a better chance for a faster, less expensive and less stressful experience with a positive outcome when you do your homework first.
The various sections of NCCRM’s website are designed to give you an overview of infertility. There’s a lot to understand and we want to be your patient advocate through the process. Our experienced staff at our Cary and Greensboro offices of NCCRM are here to help you realize your dream of becoming a parent.
