Obviously, testing is key to addressing fertility issues. Usually the first question regarding female fertility is whether you are ovulating or not. The next step in fertility testing is tracking your ovulation through fertility awareness or a fertility monitor. This will provide Dr. Starks with valuable information about your ovulation.

The first test performed by your fertility specialists involves measuring your follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH) to establish a baseline. This is performed on the third day of your cycle. This test is performed during your first visit.

Your second visit will occur on the day of the LH surge, which is before ovulation in most cases. During your first cycle, it is common for your fertility specialists to perform several tests.
