Female fertility tests

Female fertility tests

1. Female infertility tests

The gynaecologist performs the primary examination of the lesser pelvis bimanually and with the help of the vaginal ultrasound scan. The photo of the ultrasound scan is the first document in your file of results.

2. Cervix cancer check

We analyse your cervix swab – if it is abnormal, involving an oncologist, and if necessary we determine HPV type as well.

The Human papillomavirus is reponsible for 7% of all tumours in humans, and for 99,7% of all cervical cancers. Today HPV is the most common sexually transmitted disease.More than 130 types of HPV are known and 40 of them cause diseases in the genitals.

3. Bacterial panel

During the female bacteriology panel we look for bacteriological infections in urine, vaginal discharge and cervical swab with the help of a culture. With the help of the cervical swab we look for Chlamydia, Ureaplasma and Neisseria bacteria.

4. Hormone tests

Basic hormone tests

Third day of the cycle: FSH, LH, Estradiol, Prolactin, Progesteron, Testosterone, TSH

21 st day of the cycle: Progesteron, Prolactin tests are done.

Further hormone tests can be taken if needed: DHEA-S, FT3, FT4, aTPO, AMH (Anti Müller Hormone), Inhibin, Insulin resistence tests.

5. Blood tests

We test for the following virus and other infections based on blood tests:

  • HIV
  • Syphilis
  • Chlamydia trachomatis antibody
  • Toxoplasma gondii antibody
  • Rubeola virus antibody
  • Cytomegalovirus antibody
  • Herpes simplex virus 1-2
  • Varicella zoster virus
  • Hepatitis panel (HBsAg, HbsAt, HBc At, anti HCV)

6. Permeability tests

Permeability tests aim to discover the anatomic states of the female genitals to find out the permeability of the uterine cavity and the fallopian tubes. Depending on how detailed a description is needed and how the case should be handled there are three types of permeability tests.

  • HSG

    Hysterosalpingogram is an x-ray process, it is a bit of an uncomfortable procedure. It gives a perfectly clear picture on the state of the fallopian tubes and a bit less clear picture about the uterine cavity. It is one of the most common procedures that can be financed by National Health Insurance Fund in Hungary


    A Hystero Contrast Salpingographia is an ultrasound scan, that is less painful. We can examine the uterine cavity and the fallopian tubes quite precisely with minimal strain on the body. Analysing the results requires an experienced professional.

  • Hysteroscopy, Laparoscopy

    These procedures examine the uterine and abdominal cavities through surgery. Hysteroscopy and laparoscopy are the most precise methods for determining the anatomical state, but they cause a considerable strain on the body of the patient.

7. Genetic tests (if needed)

During the fertility tests we may discover that infertility could be caused by genetic disorders. After several unsuccessful fertility treatments or recurring miscarriages this may mean there is a genetic disorder. That is why we need to test for this before starting the treatment. The diagnosis is carried out by a professional in genetics after several consultations and genetic tests.

8. Immunology tests (if needed)

After recurring miscarriages and unsuccessful fertility treatments an immunology test is essential. It is quite rare but possible that pregnancy or keeping the baby are prevented by immunological factors. After the tests have established the cause, the problem can be treated.

9. Haemophylia (if needed)

Minor problems with blood clotting quite often appear. They can also be the cause of infertility, sequential unsuccessful treatments and miscarriages too. In these cases, a haematology consultation, tests and the appropriate treatment can solve the problem.
