To create a full-fledged family and give birth to a healthy child, that is a significant, but not always achievable desire that most couples face. Fortunately, nothing is impossible for modern medicine. Thanks to IVF, thousands of couples were able to experience the happiness of motherhood and fatherhood.

IVF is a complex and serious method for which the couple must prepare in advance. The initial stage of preparation for artificial insemination involves the delivery of tests. In vitro fertilization is done after preliminary diagnosis.

Why do couples need examinations before IVF?

A thorough examination before IVF is the key to a successful pregnancy and the birth of a healthy baby. Having passed a full examination before the IVF procedure, the doctor will be able to identify and timely determine the factors that could prevent the onset of pregnancy. 

Many couples who plan to take part in an ART (assisted reproductive technology) program are concerned about what tests need to be done before planning a child. To participate in the IVF program, both partners must undergo examinations. Examination before in vitro fertilization includes a number of mandatory and additional studies. 

Mandatory examinations for women: 

  • the conclusion of the therapist on the state of health and the absence of contraindications for bearing a baby;
  • determination of blood group and Rh factor;
  • general blood analysis;
  • coagulogram;
  • blood test for syphilis, HIV, hepatitis B and C;

  • ultrasound of the pelvic organs. ⠀⠀

Examinations for men: 

  • blood test for syphilis, HIV, hepatitis B and C;
