Ovulation Check (venesection)
Trying to conceive can be a very frustrating experience with one in six couples struggling to fall pregnant. As well as making sure your body is in good physical shape you can improve your chances of conceiving by checking whether you are ovulating with a simple ovulation test.

A faster route to conception

Infertility is defined as the inability to conceive a pregnancy after 12 months of unprotected sexual intercourse, and it affects 1 in 6 couples. If you have been trying to conceive for over 12 months, your GP may determine that your situation warrants further investigation and may suggest a referral to a fertility specialist.

There are many reasons why a woman may struggle to conceive, from a blockage in the fallopian tubes to lack of ovulation.


This ovulation test aims to identify infertility that is caused by anovulation or lack of ovulation. Over-the-counter ovulation prediction kits or ovulation tests tend to measure LH (luteinising hormone) surge but a surge does not necessarily guarantee that ovulation will take place. To accurately determine whether ovulation has occurred, a progesterone ovulation test measured on day 21 of the menstrual cycle is necessary.

If your blood test results do indicate that you are not ovulating, in many situations treatment is simple and involves a prescription from your GP to help release the eggs.
