Want to Find Out About Your Fertility?
Struggling to fall pregnant and not sure where to start with testing?
You can do some simple tests here to get started.

If you are currently (or planning on) doing treatment or fertility coaching with me, you can send them into me to have a look over and help you understand what is happening. Otherwise you can take them to your GP and they can help you with them.
Simple Initial Fertility Checks
A great test to give an overview of male fertility hormones.
Recommended on day 3 of your cycle - the 3rd day of your period. If you cycle is not regular then a random test may help determine why.
Seminal fluid test to determine male fertility.
Recommended 7 days after ovulation if you are aware of when that is occurring or if you have a regular 28 day cycle then test on day 21.
Blood test to confirm pregnancy - this tests gives you a quantitative hCG level which can help determine how many weeks you are.
Advanced Fertility Checks

If age is a factor or you are concerned about your ability to conceive then this AMH test can be helpful to ascertain how many eggs (ovarian reserve) are in store.
Insulin resistance is often a factor with PCOS or metabolic syndrome. It causes weight gain especially around the abdomen. Knowing whether this is affecting your cycle can be helpful and determine the best type of foods for fertility and hormones.
