Have you been struggling with conceiving? Have you been told you have unexplained fertility? Or perhaps you are just wanting to prepare your body as a pre-conception measure.
The fertility health check looks at key metabolic, nutrient and hormonal reasons that might be affecting your fertility. Nutrient status is not commonly checked for in fertility clinics and can be a cause of not being able to conceive.
The fertility health check will test your key nutrients, your thyroid function and your hormone levels, including:
Serum B12, Folate, Vitamin D, Ferritin, TSH
FT4, FT3, TSH, Anti TPO antibodies, Anti TG antibodies,
LH, FSH, LH:FSH, Prolactin, oestradiol, *Progesterone, Testosterone, SHBG, Free Androgen Index, AMH
*Progesterone is ideally screened on day 21 of your cycle, or mid point between ovulation and your period. It is ok to take your blood at a different time, but please let me know (if you can) where about you are in your cycle.
*Please note that HRT and hormonal birth control will alter your hormone results.
The Fertility health check includes all testing and a 1:1 session, offering advice to help support your health.
