A faster road to conception

Infertility is defined as the inability to conceive after 12 months of trying and affects 1 in 6 couples.

There are many reasons why a woman may struggle to conceive including a blockage in the fallopian tubes, lack of ovulation, or lifestyle issues such as high stress. This fertility test assesses whether your hormones are in the correct balance to achieve a pregnancy.

Hormones communicate to create the right environment for conception, such as the maturation and properly timed release of healthy eggs from the ovaries, and preparation of the uterus lining for implantation. A hormone imbalance can significantly disrupt this delicate system reducing the chance of a successful pregnancy. Sadly many women waste months or even years trying to conceive before they discover a hormone imbalance. This fertility test can give you the answers now so you won’t need to waste precious time before taking action.

What we test

Female Hormone Panel

This fertility test checks the hormones which play an important role in controlling and supporting reproduction. This fertility test should be conducted on Day 3 of the menstrual cycle.

This fertility test measures:

Stimulates the ovary to mature an egg. High levels indicate poor ovarian reserves which means the quality and quantity of eggs may be low. This doesn’t necessarily mean that pregnancy is impossible, but it may be more difficult to achieve.

Governs the menstrual cycle, peaking before ovulation. Raised LH can signal that a woman is not ovulating, is menopausal or that the hormones are not in balance. A high LH/FSH ratio can indicate Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS).

Stimulates follicle growth in the ovaries and also prepares the uterus for implantation. High day 3 levels may indicate a cyst in the ovary or reduced ovarian reserves.

High levels commonly seen in polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) which can lead to difficulties in conceiving. Symptoms can include irregular periods, loss of hair from the head, excess facial and body hair, unexplained weight gain and acne.

A normal FSH:LH ratio is 1. However if FSH levels are much higher than LH levels then this suggests poor ovarian reserve.
