It’s one of those things we should be able to take for granted. But with one in six couples affected by infertility, have you ever wondered whether you or your partner can actually have a baby?
A Repromed Fertility Health Check is recommended as the first step when considering having a baby, or if you’ve been trying for more than six months and not yet pregnant, or if you simply want to find out about your biological clock.
The results will give you and your partner the answers you need about your fertility to make decisions about your future.
The Repromed Fertility Health Check is now being offered for $85 for an individual or $135 per couple and includes a simple range of tests including:
- Anti-Mullerian Hormone (AMH) Blood Test
- Semen Analysis
- Review Appointment
Anti-Mullerian Hormone (AMH) Test
The AMH Blood Test helps to measure the hormone associated with a woman’s ovarian reserve levels – the lower the number of eggs, the lower the level of Anti-Mullerian Hormone. Women with a diminished ovarian reserve have diminished fertility and an increased risk of miscarriage. This test provides a snapshot early on so a decision can be made on when to start trying for a baby and when to access fertility treatment. This test can be done at any time during a normal menstrual cycle
Anti-Mullerian Hormone has also shown to be a good marker for Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS).
Smoking, alcohol, certain chemicals and a variety of other factors can affect the health of sperm. A semen analysis is the single most important piece of information needed to assess male fertility. It measures the amount and quality of a man’s semen and sperm – assessing characteristics such as sperm movement.
At Repromed we are committed to providing the highest quality standards when providing a semen analysis. We perform our analysis according to the latest World Health Organisation (WHO) criteria – the gold standard in performing a semen analysis. Samples are analysed within an hour to get the most accurate results.
A follow-up appointment will be scheduled with a Repromed Doctor or Specialist to review the results of these tests and discuss your available options.
