We believe every parenting journey should start with a fertility assessment, or fertility MOT as we call them.
We offer fertility MOTs to both NHS and private patients who are worried about their, or their partner’s fertility. It will help us guide you in your parenting journey, either now or in the future and help us to plan a bespoke treatment program tailored specifically to your needs.
Female Fertility Assessment
What does it mean to have a ‘good’ ovarian reserve? How might that affect whether you can have children now or later in life? And how quickly could your ovarian reserve drop?
Many women worry about their ability to have children, either now or in the future. But until you try to conceive, there’s really no way to tell how easy it will be.
During the female Fertility MOT, we’ll check your ovarian reserve and thyroid hormone levels. If you’ve been trying to conceive for a while, or you’re just thinking about having a family in the future, it’s the first step in exploring your fertility.
Most GPs don’t offer these tests as standard. And they may have limited experience of interpreting the results.
Female Fertility Assessment
There comes a time in every woman’s life when you start to worry about your ability to have children, but until you try there’s really no real indication of how easy it will be.
Male and Female Couple’s Fertility Assessment
This is a combination of the tests in the Female and Male Fertility MOTs, followed by a detailed Fertility Consultation with one of our doctors.
“We cannot put into words how extremely happy and blessed we now feel to have our beautiful daughter.”
Same-Sex Couple Fertility Assessment
This is an ideal option if you are in a same-sex relationship, and you haven’t decided who is to be the genetic parent first.
Ovarian reserve testing allows you to make a better-informed choice.
“I love how every time I walk into the Agora I am welcomed by my name. I popped in today and as soon as I walk in the door I hear, Hello Christina. I feel like a person and not just a customer.“
Male Fertility Assessment
How do you know if you’re producing enough sperm? What could you do to improve your sperm quality?
The Male Fertility MOT includes a semen analysis. This means you’ll need to provide a fresh sample of sperm, either at home or in the clinic. You need to avoid ejaculation for 3-5 days beforehand. If you prefer to produce a sample at home, remember to ask us for a sample pot. You will then need to bring your sample to your appointment within 30-60 minutes of producing it.
We’ll send a copy of your result to your GP.
Enhanced Male Fertility Assessment
Some men opt to have an Enhanced Fertility MOT, which is a more detailed male fertility test. It includes some additional tests of sperm health and function. And it gives us a far greater insight into your reproductive health.
It can be very helpful if previous or home sperm tests have been normal and your infertility remains ‘unexplained’. Or when these tests have been abnormal but you have not been given an explanation as to why.
The Enhanced Fertility MOT also includes a short telephone consultation with your doctor. They’ll discuss your results with you, and may recommend some lifestyle changes or treatments.
