Fertility tests for women

If you’re feeling concerned about your fertility after a long period of trying to conceive or interested in learning about the best options for you if you’re wanting to conceive later on, a fertility test can offer the information, reassurance and expert advice you need.

You need to have completed a fertility assessment before you can start fertility treatment.

How do female fertility tests work?

We offer fertility tests for women at all our TFP Fertility clinics, with various packages designed to suit your personal circumstances.  

You don’t need to have seen a GP or have been referred to book an assessment with us. It takes just one or two visits to our clinic to complete all the necessary investigations and have a consultation with one of our specialists.  

Most importantly, after your fertility test, you’ll be given the appropriate advice and have the chance to ask questions about potential next steps.  

What is checked?

Firstly, you’ll need to complete a medical questionnaire that includes your BMI, blood pressure and a lifestyle evaluation. Depending on the outcomes, we’ll arrange for some tests to be carried out.  

The right tests for you will depend on your personal circumstances and health struggles. That’s why we use a variety of fertility assessments to identify what may be causing your fertility trouble. 

These include:

AMH blood test

The AMH blood test assesses your ovarian reserve by checking your levels of the anti-Mullerian hormone, a hormone produced by cells in the ovary.

This enables us to assess your potential reaction to stimulating drugs as well as predict how many eggs we might be able to collect during treatment.

AFC trans-vaginal scan

The AFC scan is a pelvic ultrasound examination to assess your uterus and check for any abnormalities.

We will also assess your ovaries for their volume - ovaries tend to decrease in size in the time before menopause and smaller ovaries have been linked to a poor response to stimulating drugs – as well as the number of antral follicles.

It’s important to know that your ovarian antral follicle count (AFC) declines as you age.

Together, these tests give an accurate measure of your fertility and likely your response to any medication. We recommend that the scan should be carried out in the first half of your menstrual cycle.  

What can I expect from the fertility tests process?

We’ll aim for your blood test and scan to be carried out on the same day for your convenience. You may also require other tests to check your levels of the follicle stimulating hormone (FSH), luteinizing hormone (LH) and progesterone.  

We’ll then book you in for a consultation the following week where we’ll talk you through your results and recommend and explain any treatment options that may benefit you.

Of course, there is no obligation to go ahead with treatment following your consultation.  

What are the chances of identifying a problem?

At TFP Fertility, we’re specialists in fertility problems and treatments. We will work with you (and your partner) to find out why you’re struggling to conceive and how we can help.  

Most individuals and couples who come to us do receive a diagnosis, however, in some cases, it can be difficult to find out exactly why some people are struggling to conceive.  

Whatever the case, at TFP, we will work tirelessly to understand the reason for your fertility issues and to recommend a treatment plan that will best suit your needs.  

Unexplained infertility diagnosis

We know a diagnosis for unexplained infertility can be upsetting and frustrating.

However, many individuals and couples with unexplained infertility do go on to conceive naturally and there are treatments we can recommend to improve your chances of conception.
