Early Fertility Assessment

It is ideal for those who are thinking of starting a family or have been trying to conceive for a short time and would like an assessment of their reproductive health.

Prior to your appointment, you will be asked to complete a questionnaire to allow a thorough assessment of your reproductive health. As well as performing the necessary fertility tests, we aim to provide couples with advice on how to improve their chances of conceiving naturally.

If a fertility issue is identified, early investigation and management will be arranged.

What is involved in an early fertility assessment?

Semen Analysis- a detailed test carried out by one of our embryology/andrology specialists to identify if there are any sperm abnormalities

Female Hormone Profile- FSH, LH, oestradiol and a mid-luteal Progesterone level to assess the levels of female hormones and confirm ovulation

Anti-Mullerian Hormone (AMH) level- a blood test that can be performed at any time of the menstrual cycle and relates to a woman’s ovarian reserve (indicating the number of eggs left in the ovaries)

Pelvic Ultrasound and Antral Follicle Count- a detailed transvaginal ultrasound scan assessing the uterus and ovaries for any abnormalities and quantifying the number of follicles in each ovary (follicles contain immature eggs), indicating ovarian activity.

A 30 minute consultation with a fertility specialist where a full medical and fertility history will be taken and lifestyle factors will be addressed. Further investigation will be arranged where necessary and advice on increasing your chances of natural conception.
