Q: Can an at-home test help identify diminished ovarian reserve?
A: Yes, through testing for various hormones, including low levels of AMH. Your follicles release a hormone called anti-mullerian hormone (AMH), and this can give an indication of your ovarian reserve, and your fertility. Low levels of AMH can suggest a small ovarian reserve.
Q: I struggle with irregular periods. Can Hertility help me work out why?
A: Irregular periods can happen for lots of reasons. You might have a hormonal imbalance, your lifestyle or diet could contribute, or you may have an underlying condition.
At Hertility, many of the hormones we test for can give you an insight into your hormonal health, and could help explain what’s causing the issue. Once you have your results, we’re on hand for a follow-up session to take you through next steps, like tackling those irregular cycles.
Q: Can an at-home test pick up a thyroid issue?
A: Once we’ve got your finger-prick blood test, we can test T3, T4 and TSH in our lab. All of these are key players in both general health and ovulation. And from there, one of our gynaecology team can run through your results, highlighting anything that raises a red flag for thyroid concerns.
Q: What about PCOS?
A: Yes, we can definitely help with an indicated PCOS condition, based on your individual test results.
Q: I have a family history of endometriosis – can an at-home test give me a head-start on diagnosis?
A: Based on your results (and that initial health assessment), your report will recommend further assessment for endometriosis. Again, we’re here for your next steps – once you have your results, you can book a private consultation with my amazing team.
