Tests are often used to identify the cause of infertility, and in turn, determine the best course of treatment. The Reproductive Health and Fertility Center offers a wide range of tests, services and procedures, all of which can be done at the Essentia Health–Duluth Clinic 1st Street Building.
Our care team uses a variety of lab tests to assess hormone levels necessary for reproduction. These include the follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), luteinizing hormone (LH), estradiol (E2), thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) and prolactin, and progesterone.
Other diagnostic tests include uterus and fallopian tubes X-rays (hypersalpingograms – HSGs), saline infusion ultrasounds (sonohysterograms – SHGs), ovarian volume ultrasounds, follicle studies, cervical mucous and sperm motility exams (postcoital – PCT – also Huhners test), and semen/sperm analysis for men.
Fertility treatments offered at the Reproductive Health and Fertility Center include ovulation induction/stimulation with fertility drugs, intrauterine inseminations (IUIs) and infertility surgery (including tubal reversals).
