The Top 5 Fertility Tests
What tests are done for fertility? - How is a woman’s fertility tested?
At your very first visit at Audubon Fertility you’ll be introduced to the fertility workup, which starts with your medical and fertility history. This is important as our team prides itself on personalized care and makes a point to avoid unnecessary testing which might delay your treatment. The entire workup usually takes less than a month and may include one or more of the following tests:
AMH Blood Test
Genetic Carrier Screening
The Antimullerian hormone is primarily released from the ovary and is an important measure of ovarian reserve. This simple lab test is a great peek into your reproductive potential, and clinically it helps us chose the right treatment for you. A low AMH usually means your reserve could be low and when treating you we would move toward more aggressive dosing and treatment sooner. This is important as we value your time and resources and would not want you to go through treatment not likely to result in pregnancy. Likewise, we can use this test when counseling patients about fertility preservation. For example, if a woman is considering oocyte or egg cryopreservation, a low AMH may help in decision-making by alerting her to low or diminished reserve so she can freeze eggs now before it is too late.
