Female Fertility Assessments

Whatever age you are, you may be anxious or worried by the thought of being unable to conceive. And it’s understandable. So, whether you have tried to get pregnant or are yet to start your family, you may want to have a female fertility test to explore your chances.

Not only will this help to put your mind at rest, but finding out that you may experience some struggles, allows you more time to explore different fertility treatments.

Testing female fertility is conducted by taking a range of factors, such as your lifestyle, height, age and weight, into consideration. We’ll explore how your lifestyle habits are affecting your female fertility, and carry out a few medical tests to see if there’s anything happening within your reproductive system that’s causing your pregnancy struggle.

Depending on your results, you may be offered different types of test to gain deeper insight to your fertility. This is usually decided from the results of your ovarian reserve tests.

Thank you for all your hard work not just for us, but for everyone and for making all those wishes come true.

We recommend you to anyone we know who is going through fertility problems as you make the whole journey much more manageable.

Fertility tests for women

You’ll receive a tailored consultation with one of our specialists, who may recommend one of the following fertility tests for women:

  • Anti-Mullerian Hormone (AMH) – Measuring your egg reserve through a blood test.
  • Follicle-Stimulating Hormone (FSH) – Measuring the level of the hormone in your blood through a blood test.
  • Antral Follicle Counts (AFC) – Another method for testing your egg reserve, commonly done through a vaginal ultrasound.
  • Cycle monitoring – Recommended as part of a female fertility test for women with irregular menstruation cycles, this helps to determine when a woman is most fertile.
  • Cytology – Examining the cells of your reproductive system to search for any problems which may be causing your infertility.
  • Hysteroscopy – An investigation of the womb, whereby a tiny telescope is introduced through the opening of the cervix. This method helps to investigate uterine abnormalities.a
  • HyCoSy – A type of scan which checks if your fallopian tubes are blocked or patent, using dye.
  • Immunology testing – This investigates your blood serum to assess how this affects your ability to get pregnant.
  • Genetic testing – If your parents have experienced struggle with infertility, this part of the fertility tests for women will predict the chances of you having the same, or carrying a genetic condition.
  • Chlamydia testing – By using a urine sample or vaginal swab, this test will reveal if you have the sexually transmitted infection which may affect female fertility.
  • Karyotype – The test can be used to identify a genetic cause for a disease or disorder, and it is arranged for couples who have experienced recurrent miscarriage or repeated failed IVF cycles. It is also requested where there is a significant male fertility problem.
