Fertility Diagnosis

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. 

Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART)

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.

Fertility Counseling and Support

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 start seeing an OB-GYN?

 What is a Pap smear, and why is it important? 

A Pap smear, also known as a Pap test, is a screening test used to detect abnormal cells in the cervix. It is a crucial tool for early detection and prevention of cervical cancer. Women should start getting regular Pap smears around the age of 21, and the frequency may vary based on individual risk factors. 

What services are provided by an OB-GYN? 

OB-GYNs provide a wide range of services, including prenatal care, childbirth and delivery, management of gynecological conditions, family planning and contraception, menopause management, cancer screenings, infertility evaluations, and surgical procedures related to the reproductive system. 

What is the role of an OB-GYN during pregnancy? 

During pregnancy, an OB-GYN provides prenatal care to monitor the health of both the mother and the developing baby. They perform regular check-ups, order necessary tests and screenings, monitor fetal growth and development, and provide guidance on a healthy pregnancy, including nutrition, exercise, and childbirth preparation. 

Are OB-GYNs also surgeons? 

Yes, OB-GYNs are trained to perform various surgical procedures related to the female reproductive system. These can include hysterectomy, tubal ligation, myomectomy (fibroid removal), ovarian cystectomy, and surgical interventions for endometriosis or pelvic organ prolapse

 How often should I visit my OB-GYN? 

The frequency of visits can vary depending on your age, medical history, and specific needs. Generally, women should have a yearly well-woman exam, which includes a pelvic exam, breast exam, and Pap smear. Pregnant women typically have more frequent visits throughout their pregnancy

What are common gynecological conditions? 

Common gynecological conditions include menstrual disorders, such as irregular periods or heavy bleeding, pelvic pain, urinary tract infections (UTIs), endometriosis, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), fibroids, and ovarian cysts. These conditions can be diagnosed and treated by an OB-GYN. 

Can an OB-GYN help with family planning and contraception? 

Yes, OB-GYNs are well-equipped to provide counseling on various methods of contraception and help you choose the most suitable option based on your lifestyle and reproductive goals. They can also provide preconception counseling to help you prepare for a healthy pregnancy. 

When should I consider consulting an infertility specialist? 

If you have been trying to conceive for a year (or six months if you're over 35) without success, it may be time to consult an infertility specialist. However, if you have known medical conditions or irregular menstrual cycles, it may be appropriate to seek help sooner.
