GP Fertility Investigations

What fertility investigations do patients need?

Our aim is to provide your patient with the best advice, treatments and support we can to help them achieve a healthy pregnancy, and to do this as quickly and efficiently as possible. To help us do this, we would be grateful if you could ensure the following results are available to us at your patient’s first appointment, as we will often then be able to move straight ahead with a treatment plan for them.

  • FSH, LH and Oestrogen: This blood test should be taken on day 2-4 of the cycle
  • Progesterone: This blood test should be taken on day 21 of the cycle if 28 days long, or a day or two earlier or later if the cycle is shorter or longer respectively.
  • Rubella blood test. 
  • Chlamydia swab or urine test. 
  • Semen Analysis.

Please note that referral does not guarantee that a patient will be accepted for treatment, but all patients will be seen and assessed as to their suitability for assisted conception.
