Female fertility testing
We offer fertility health and wellbeing packages at our clinics in Cambridge, Norwich, Wickford, or at home. All testing packages include individual consultations with one of our experienced specialists to discuss your results.
Our female package includes the option of AMH blood tests for ovarian reserve; TSH to assess your thyroid stimulating hormone, an ultrasound scan; and private consultation. Additionally, we include a free 30-minute consultation with our fertility nutritionist to provide you with nutrition and lifestyle advice.
How are my eggs?
Ovarian function and reserve tests – sometimes known as an ‘egg count’ – tell us a lot about your fertility.
Women are born with a finite number of eggs that are stored in the ovaries. These are released over time, until the stock runs out (the menopause). The quality of the egg also diminishes as stock levels decline.
To get an accurate picture of your stock of eggs, we carry out a number of blood tests and an ultrasound assessment of your ovaries.
The blood tests measure levels of anti-müllerian hormone (AMH). This provides guidance on the likelihood of natural conception, your potential egg count from fertility treatments, and how well your ovaries are likely to respond to different medication regimes.
The ultrasound assessment tells you how many immature follicles – structures containing potential eggs – are visible in the ovary, giving an estimation of stock levels. While performing this test, we also evaluate any problems or abnormalities in your uterus and its lining, as well as around your reproductive organs.
Understanding your results
The outcomes of female fertility checks might give you reassurance and peace of mind about your ability to conceive naturally or they may lead us to advise you about lifestyle changes that could increase your chances of achieving a pregnancy.
Following your consultation with one of our fertility specialist doctors to discuss your results, we may also recommend further tests, such as a HyCoSy tubal patency test, which uses ultrasound to look for common symptoms such as blocked fallopian tubes. If we identify that treatment or surgical intervention is needed, we will guide you through your options, with advice and support every step of the way.
At-home testing option
We also offer you the choice of conducting your AMH and TSH check at home with a test kit. Should you decide on this option, an analysis kit will be sent to you with full instructions on how to conduct the tests and return them to the labs for analysis.*
Your test results will be reviewed and discussed with you in your consultation with one of our fertility specialist doctors.
