The fertility journey can be difficult—but the first step doesn’t have to be.

Whether you are years away from having children or have already started trying, you deserve to know your reproductive potential. Our Women's Fertility package is a good place to start.

This package provides an assessment of a woman's ability to conceive by measuring the hormones that play a vital role in the production of eggs (oocytes).

It’s important to understand that no laboratory test can predict the likelihood of pregnancy. However, ovarian reserve tests can assess egg quantity to help predict ovarian response to stimulation (if you decide egg freezing or in vitro fertilization are right for you). It can also indicate conditions like PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome) which may affect your ability to conceive.

This test does not evaluate egg quality. However, tracking your levels over time can provide you information to help you discuss your options with your doctor to make informed decisions about your reproductive journey.

Preparation

The timing of sample collection is important. Your sample should be collected on the third day of your menstrual period. FSH (follicle-stimulating hormone) and estradiol levels can rise and fluctuate after day three; samples collected on the second or fourth cycle day may also be acceptable. This test is not recommended if you are receiving hormone therapies of any kind.

What's Included

AMH (Anti-Müllerian Hormone):

A hormone produced by reproductive tissues in both sexes. AMH is secreted by developing egg sacs (in women), which is generally a good indicator of egg quantity (ovarian reserve).

FSH (Follicle-Stimulating Hormone):

A hormone that plays a vital role in reproduction by helping the body develop eggs.

Estradiol:

The most common type of estrogen, produced by the ovaries, that regulates reproductive cycles in women.

Why Consider This Test

Age Affects Fertility

About 20 percent of women in the U.S. now have their first child after age 35. About one-third of couples in which the woman trying to get pregnant is older than 35 years have fertility problems.1

    Fertility Treatments & Egg Preservation

    AMH is the best measure of ovarian reserve to help women make decisions regarding IVF and egg preservation (egg freezing) treatments. Freezing eggs at a younger age can help women preserve their fertility for the future; More than 10,000 American women elected to freeze their eggs in 2017.2,3

    PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome)

    In the same way that AMH can help predict the likelihood of a successful IVF procedure, it can aid in the diagnosis of PCOS in women who may not have obvious signs of the syndrome.
