Fertility blood tests at Fertility North fall under two categories:
Screening blood tests occur at the very beginning of your journey, even before you have begun any treatment. These fertility tests are important as they allow us to check for any underlying health conditions that may contribute to a delay in conceiving, and also enable us to tailor treatment according to your individual needs.
Fertility North will assess your blood count, blood group, chromosome count, hormone levels and an infection screen, as well as a prostate cancer check for males. During your consultation, your Fertility North Doctor may also recommend additional screening fertility tests, in accordance with your medical and family history. These screening tests are carried out on both partners (if applicable), and consist of mainly blood tests, but a urine test is also performed, and the infectious screening tests are repeated on an annual basis.
During an investigative or treatment cycle, the female patient will be required to undertake regular blood tests to track the levels of reproductive hormones over the course of a month (or thereabouts). Throughout your cycle, Fertility North will monitor the levels of these hormones:
Please refer to our Cycle Tracking page for more information on how we conduct in-cycle blood tests at Fertility North.
The results of these screening and in-cycle blood tests are reviewed closely by our Team, and are used to help determine the next appropriate course of action during your cycle, and by your Specialist to ascertain the best treatment option/s for you going forward. Your treatment will be tailored in accordance with your results as your cycle progresses.
