This week we celebrated my daughter’s 15th birthday, but 17 years ago I was having a stressful time trying to get pregnant. I knew that I was a little older to be trying as I was already over 35. I had to wait for tests and help from the NHS as you always do. If you are younger you can be waiting even longer. I was lucky enough to be picked for a study at Oxford University on fertility and it help me immensely to understand my body.
Lets Get Checked for Fertility
LetsGetChecked provide home testing for a whole range of different health issues. Recently I did a test to see if I had Coeliac Disease. You can also test for diabetes, lyme disease, liver, thyroid and kidneys just to name a few. You can also test your fertility.
Lets Get Checked has three fertility tests;
The Progesterone-Ovulation test offers you an insight into your ability to ovulate by measuring the level of Progesterone in your blood.
Ovarian Reserve Test
The Ovarian Reserve Test offers you an insight into how many eggs you have left in your ovaries by testing the range of Anti Mullerian Hormone (AMH) in the blood.
Female Hormone Test
The Female Hormone test offers a comprehensive picture of your fertility status by looking at a number of key hormones including Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH), Luteinizing Hormone (LH), Prolactin and Oestradiol.
