Women’s Health

Evaluation Process

St. Luke’s University Health Network works with couples to achieve healthy pregnancies by trying to figure out the root cause of the couple's infertility.

Couples will usually want to consider an evaluation for infertility after 12 months of trying to conceive (for women under 35) and after 6 months if older than 35. Our physicians and staff are trained in guiding patients through diagnostic testing, which may include:

  • History, physical and pelvic exams
  • Blood tests to determine hormone levels, ovulation function and ovarian reserve
  • Semen analysis
  • Pelvic ultrasounds and x-rays to check quality of fallopian tubes

Additional testing will be performed based on these results to continue to determine the cause of the couple's infertility.

We are happy to work with couples in the Lehigh Valley and beyond to not only treat infertility but to get to the root cause of the problem.
