Increasingly women are choosing to postpone the start of a family until later in life. Whilst this may suit personal lifestyles it can lower chances of conception significantly. Generally speaking by the age of 35 most women are half as fertile as they were at 25.
Accurate and comprehensive female blood hormone testing combined with an ultrasound scan can reliably predict the ovarian reserve of the eggs. This is far superior compared to over-the-counter fertility tests.
A two step process involves an initial consultation with Mr. Shah or Mr. Gudi and a blood test to check FSH, LH, Estradiol and AMH levels between days 1-5 of your period combined with an internal scan to assess the follicles in your ovaries. This also helps with deciding the dosage of any medication you may require when undergoing fertility treatment.
