In brief: It depends

The primary test for men is the semen analysis, best done by a fertility specialist.
For women, you can do your own ovulation predictor kit and see if you are ovulating. There is an office test called femvue to see if your fallopian tubes are open. There are also blood tests to evaluate your hormones. You may enjoy my book tick tock www.Ticktock.Ws, about my own infertility journey.
