What We Test For
is a hormone produced by the pituitary gland in the brain. FSH is responsible for ensuring the normal function of the ovaries and the menstrual cycle. Day 3 FSH levels increase as ovarian reserve falls.
Anti-Mullerian Hormone (AMH)
is only produced by ovarian egg follicles and so levels of this hormone can be used to estimate ovarian reserve. The test can be used to determine whether your ovarian reserve levels are as expected for your age.
Female Fertility Test - FAQs
How do you test fertility for women?
There are various methods of testing for female fertility which may include physical examinations such as hysterosalpingography, laparoscopy, and/or imaging tests. Hormone blood tests can also inform you on your reproductive status: These may include luteinizing hormone (LH), follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), or prolactin. Additionally, ovarian reserve testing may be used to determine the quantity of eggs available for ovulation, by measuring the Anti-Mullerian Hormone (AMH).
Why does female fertility decline with age?
The human ovary contains a fixed number of eggs developed before birth and female fertility declines with age due to a decrease in egg quantity and in egg quality: Women lose eggs each month and with age, eggs are more likely to contain chromosomal abnormalities. Women are most fertile in their teens and early 20s and fertility declines throughout adult life. It is estimated that by the age of 30 years only 12% of a woman’s (pre-birth) maximum egg count is still available.
What’s the difference between the Female Fertility and Female Hormones Test?
The YorkTest Female Fertility Test provides results for 2 different health markers from a finger-prick blood sample. The Female Fertility Test includes the anti-Mullerian Hormone (AMH) which is produced by ovarian egg follicles giving an indication of your ovarian reserve.
Which hormones play a role in female fertility?
Follicle-stimulating Hormone (FSH) is a hormone produced by the pituitary gland in the brain. FSH is responsible for ensuring the normal function of the ovaries and the menstrual cycle, stimulating the follicles in the ovaries to grow and develop.
Anti-Mullerian Hormone (AMH) is produced by the cells which surround the eggs inside the follicles therefore levels of this hormone can be used to estimate ovarian reserve (i.e., the lower the value, the lower the egg count). The test can be used to determine whether your ovarian reserve levels are as expected for your age.
What’s the normal range for female fertility hormones?
FSH levels vary throughout the menstrual cycle and peak prior to ovulation which is around day 14 of the menstrual cycle.
It is important that the blood sample for the test is taken on day 3 of the menstrual cycle, FSH levels at day 3 are typically low. Typical anti-Mullerian Hormone (AMH) levels for a fertile female vary depending on age. AMH levels are measured in pmol/L and reference range levels fall with age. Measuring levels is important as it is then easy to compare to the expected level for your age. Your level can also then be compared with expected levels for other age groups.
What else affects fertility in females?
There are many factors that may affect female fertility including the following:-
- Being overweight, obese or underweight
- Taking over the counter or recreational drugs
- Levels of vitamins such as Vitamin B12 and folate
- Medical conditions such as polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) or endometriosis
