Our fertility specialists conduct thorough medical examinations, tests, and assessments to identify the underlying causes of infertility. They evaluate factors such as hormone levels, sperm quality, egg production, and reproductive organ health. Aster Centre for Fertility offer a range of diagnostic tests to evaluate fertility factors in both partners.These include hormone level testing, semen analysis, ovarian reserve testing, hysterosalpingography (HSG) to assess fallopian tube blockages, and ultrasound imaging. We also offer genetic testing that helps identify any underlying genetic conditions or chromosomal abnormalities that may impact fertility or increase the risk of inherited disorders in offspring. These tests may include carrier screening, preimplantation genetic testing (PGT), or other specialized genetic evaluations.
Aster Fertility Centre provide various ART procedures to assist with conception. These include in vitro fertilization (IVF), where eggs and sperm are combined in a laboratory ICSI – where selected sperms are injected into the egg and then transferred to the uterus, or intrauterine insemination (IUI), where sperm is directly inserted into the uterus.
We offer counseling and emotional support to individuals and couples throughout their fertility journey. Dealing with infertility can be emotionally challenging, and these services can provide guidance, coping strategies, and a safe space to discuss concerns and emotions.
Aster Centre for Fertility also offers services for individuals who wish to preserve their fertility for future use. These includes freezing eggs, sperm, or embryos, particularly for those facing medical treatments such as chemotherapy that may impact fertility.

When should I consider consulting an infertility specialist?
