a variety of things. First off is a blood test, taken a specific times during the cycle, to see if the hormones are enough to make you ovulate.
Then they might have a lap and dye (squirting dye into fallopian tubes to see if they are patent)
they might have follicular tracking (to see if follicles are being produced and travelling to the right place.

thank you, have just always wondered x
Male fertility tests are not limited to a sperm count either 4get - they also check the sperm's quality and motility. A man can have a high count but still be infertile cos the sperm's no good.

thanks karen. I wonder where they keep frozen sperm? Do you think theres a huge warehouse of it somewhere?
Its easy to tell if your man has a high sperm count, you will have to chew before you swallow.
It's kept in a freezer at either the hospital laboratory or a fertility centre...
