What does the Female Fertility MOT involve?
Assessing your ovarian reserve involves having a blood test and internal pelvic ultrasound scan of your ovaries and womb before your consultation with the doctor. These tests are both done at the clinic. Sometimes it’s possible to have your scan on the same day you see the doctor, although the blood test is usually done a few days before so that we have the result back in time to see the doctor.
The internal scan allows us to count the number of ‘antral follicles’ (small fluid-filled sacs) which are present on each ovary. It’s usually done on the day of your consultation with the doctor. The blood test measures the anti-mullerian hormone (AMH ), follicle stimulating hormone (FSH ), luteinising hormone (LH) and oestradiol. It is normally done between day 2 and 4 of your cycle.
If you’ve already had some fertility tests elsewhere, we will create a bespoke package for you. This includes an initial consultation and any tests which may not have been done or are out of date.
