infertility investigation services
During your first appointment at KARMA, we will review your medical history. This includes background on your infertility issues as well as information about any previous treatments and outcomes.
A physical examination will take place on female patients typically one week after ovulation.
Your cycle is monitored (often on a daily basis) to assess how your hormones and ovaries respond throughout your menstrual cycle (medicated or non-medicated cycle). Monitoring is done through blood hormone assays and ultrasound examinations.
All new patients are assessed by our on-site counselor. Since stress is such a common factor in infertility, she determines the role stress may play in your particular instance and makes recommendations as to how to handle any stress that is present. The goal is to ultimately improve the chances of you achieving a pregnancy.
KARMA has a full service hormonal laboratory where your specimens are tested on-site, seven days a week – with results the same day. We also perform semen analysis as well as specialized testing on sperm to determine the best treatment options.

At our facility, we can also perform Sonohysterograms (SHG), which use ultrasound to evaluate the inside of the uterine cavity, assess anatomy and determine if the tubes are open.
