Abstract

At present, several of the elements in widespread use in basic infertility testing are in dispute, marked variability exists in the work-up among specialists, and practice patterns are influenced both by modern assisted reproductive technologies (ART) and the increasing age of couples seeking help for infertility. This article is intended to stimulate the debate on a possible (lack of) usefulness of conventional methods of infertility evaluation in relation to both the modern techniques of assisted reproduction and the woman's age.
