Female Fertility Tests
Essential Initial Fertility Tests
Merrion Fertility Clinic performs a range of tests to assess female fertility. These include hormone blood tests and an ultrasound scan.
Women who hope to conceive are required to take these initial essential fertility tests. An up-to-date, normal cervical smear test is also strongly advised for pregnancy planning.
We can arrange many of these tests for you in advance of your first appointment. Results are then available for discussion with you and your partner at your Merrion Fertility Clinic Doctor consultation.
This transvaginal pelvic assessment scan gives us a lot of information about the uterus and ovaries. Ultrasound scan is used to check for cysts, fibroids, polycystic ovaries, endometriosis, polyps or swollen fallopian tubes (hydrosalpinx). The scan also allows us to look for antral follicle count, an indicator of ovarian reserve i.e. how many eggs are left in the ovaries.
Anti-Mullerian Hormone (AMH) blood test
The AMH test, in combination with your scan, is used to assess ovarian reserve. AMH blood levels are also helpful for diagnosing polycystic ovaries.
Rubella blood test
This blood test confirms Rubella immunity by measuring Rubella antibodies.
