As your gynaecologist and obstetrician, Dr Ati can assist those who are struggling to fall pregnant. While infertility can be challenging to diagnose, if you and your partner have been actively trying to conceive for several months, your gynaecologist may be able to find out the underlying cause for your difficulty.

While there is a range of factors involved in infertility and many things can make falling pregnant a bit trickier for you and your partner. It could be a problem with the cervical canal, the fallopian tubes, the female hormones or the presence of a gynaecological disorder such as fibroids or endometriosis. With that in mind, during your consultation, you will be able to discuss your challenges together with Dr Ati before the following tests are done to assess infertility and its causes:

  • A pelvic exam including a pap smear
  • Blood tests
  • Hormone testing
  • Ovarian reserve testing
  • A hysteroscopy to view the cervix and uterus
  • A biopsy of the endometrial lining
  • An ultrasound or x-ray of the reproductive organs (known as hysterosalpingography)
  • Investigation using laparoscopic tools (minimally invasive surgery)


It may be comforting to know that the majority of infertile couples will go on to conceive a child.

SSince each woman is unique, no one treatment works for all women, and it may take some time to find the right treatment. Dr Ati will refer you to the best infertility specialists once the underlying cause has been investigated. Remember, there is no one way to start a family.
