The study is conducted to the two partners, if they take at least a year trying to conceive a child without contraception without success. Studies generally last between one and two months, they are relatively simple and consist in finding out if the man has a sperm of normal characteristics, if the sperm reach the uterus after intercourse, if the woman has a right ovulation or the uterus and the fallopian tubes are normal. To do this, the fertility study may include tests such as transvaginal ultrasound, bacteriologías, hormonal study and hysterosalpingography, in the case of women; in the case of men, sperm count and sperm capacitation test.

In vitro fertilization (IVF) is the union of egg and sperm artificially in the laboratory in order to obtain a suitable number of embryos to transfer to the uterus and fertilize; thus she becomes pregnant women. This procedure can solve certain cases of infertility, and is usually resorted to when other assisted reproduction techniques have failed, such as artificial insemination. Insemination of the oocytes can be performed by conventional technique or IVF using intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), which is used mainly when there is a male sterility factor.

Infertility is the inability to father children after a period of 12 months or more keeping unprotected sex. This term should be distinguished from sterility, which is the absolute inability to achieve pregnancy. According to the World Health Organization, infertility affects 15% of couples. In approximately 40% of cases, it is male infertility; in another 40%, the problem comes from the woman, and the remaining 20% either of the two, or unspecified causes. The causes may be varied: genetics, immune, endocrine, toxic, infectious, etc. So both partners must undergo medical tests. Treatment may include techniques such as in vitro fertilization, artificial insemination, transfer of zygotes to the fallopian tubes, intracytoplasmic sperm injection.

Subsequently, an analysis of this fluid is done to rule out genetic and chromosome problems in the baby, such as anencephaly, Down syndrome, spina bifida, Rh disease, infections and rare metabolic disorders passed down through families. Amniocentesis is usually recommended for women at risk of having a child with congenital family history anomalies with genetic disorders, among other reasons. Although the risks of the test are minor, they can include: infection or injury to the baby, spontaneous abortion, loss of amniotic fluid and vaginal bleeding.
Artificial insemination is a method of insemination in which sperm is deposited in the vagina of women through mechanical means that replace copulation, and in the near ovulation time. In this way, the sperm travel up the fallopian tubes is shortened, and therefore, there are more likely to approach the more sperm egg. The aim is to increase the chances of pregnancy in couples who have difficulty conceiving a child. The technique consists, first, to collect a semen sample which is treated in the laboratory to concentrate sperm. The doctor inserts a speculum into the vagina to see the cervix and injecting the sperm into the uterus. Usually, it's a bit painful process, and usually accompanied by ovarian stimulation techniques.
Ovarian stimulation is used to increase the number of eggs in women who want to undergo assisted reproduction technique, either by artificial insemination or in vitro fertilization, because they have difficulty getting pregnant. The treatment involves placing a subcutaneous injection of a hormone prepared daily from the third day of the menstrual cycle. On the fourth day begins tracking the number and size of follicles (where the eggs will develop future) by vaginal ultrasound to determine the best day for the egg retrieval. Oocytes are extracted for several cycles to fertilize and then implanting the embryo in the uterus. Ovarian stimulation may increase the risk of a multiple pregnancy. Meanwhile, intercourse is usually applied directed, a treatment that involves sex on your most fertile days.
The operative hysteroscopy is a clinical procedure that involves inserting an optical instrument (one lighted tube connected to a video camera and a television monitor) through the vulva and vagina which allows the doctor to look inside specialist the uterine cavity. Being a closed space, it is necessary to distend the cavity. This generally used saline. This is a minimally invasive technique to diagnose some intrauterine pathologies that could not be clearly determined with other medical tests, such as a cancer or a polyp. Surgical hysteroscopy requires general or local anesthesia, and the patient returns home the same day the surgery. The technique often produces no further complications.
