Fertility Test for Women and Men
Our fertility test offers an in-depth blood screening for women and men that are looking to find out more about their fertility status.
If you are trying to conceive you need to bear in mind that there are multiple biological and lifestyle factors that might negatively impact on conception, implantation and carrying the pregnancy to term.
Female age is for sure the most important factor affecting fertility, but not the only one. Weight for instance plays a key role in conception and female obesity is associated with anovulation. Moreover, excess fat in women is directly linked to poorer embryo development, as well as its effects on the endometrium.
The obesity epidemic has been accompanied by a potential rise in male infertility, due to hormonal disturbances and compromised semen parameters.
Beside alcohol, smoking and drugs, an unhealthy diet that does not provide the right nutrients, such as Vitamin D and iron, or one high in sugar will compromise your fertility, altering the quality of your semen and eggs. Hormonal issues, thyroid dysfunctionality, liver problems, infection and inflammation are also keys areas that we will assess for a better health status and thus boost your fertility.
For fertility issues we also recommend our Vitamin and Mineral Test plus Digestive Health that will include more markers for a broader analysis of your general health and wellbeing.
Infertility affects 1 in 7 couples, take action and book your fertility test.
