The women will undergo an ultrasound scan to check for the health of the ovaries. This test can be done during any stage of the menstrual cycle. The test looks for the antral follicle count which is the number of follicles in the ovaries.
Blood flow to the follicles and the uterus is also checked to find out the estimate of the ovarian reserve. We will also test the quality and hospitality of the womb and its lining.

A semen sample is to be provided by the male participant. A private room is provided for the male to provide his ejaculate material. Once done, the sperm sample is taken away by a fertility expert for further diagnostics and analysis. For a proper sample to be obtained, the male partner should abstain from sex and ejaculation for 2 – 5 days.
