Can I Test My Fertility At Home?
One in eight couples has trouble trying to conceive and, surprisingly, infertility affects men and women equally. Approximately 1/3 of infertility is related to female factors, approximately 1/3 is related to male factors, and the remaining 1/3 is a combination of factors or unexplained.
In order to best understand your fertility and whether or not you will need fertility treatment, you should undergo a fertility workup with a trained Reproductive Endocrinologist (fertility doctor). Don’t worry, a fertility workup is not intimidating. Here’s what you can expect:
- Medical and sexual history for both partners,
- Blood work tests for both partners, including FSH and AMH tests for female partner
- Transvaginal ultrasound for female partner
- Semen analysis for male partner
If you’re really anxious or want answers without delay, you may be able to purchase an at-home fertility test. Find out how you and your partner can test your fertility at home so you have some answers, direction, and peace of mind before your fertility consultation, by reading this article by Fertility Authority and EPT.
