An Efficient Infertility EvaluationHATASAKA, HARRY MDClinical Obstetrics & Gynecology: December 2011 - Volume 54 - Issue 4 - p 644–655 doi: 10.1097/GRF.0b013e3182353be6 Infertility Abstract Author Information Abstract The biological clock is a major adversary to human reproduction. Not only does fecundity wane with time, but so does an infertility patient’s emotional reserve. Therefore, a well-organized approach to evaluating, treating, and referring patients to subspecialty centers when necessary is critical to optimally manage infertility. The initial infertility evaluation has undergone evidence-based improvements in efficiency and has demonstrated that less testing has given more useful knowledge.
