Genetic root cause of infertility
Primary Ovarian Insufficiency
POI occurs when a woman’s ovaries stop functioning normally and are unable to release eggs regularly before the age of 40. In the event you are at an elevated risk of POI, take corrective measures beforehand and ensure your future plans are not compromised
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome
PCOS is a condition that often results in irregular periods or lack of ovulation. In such cases, higher production of AMH and high levels of testosterone are generally observed. If your test results indicate an elevated risk of PCOS, consulting your doctor and initiating treatment coupled with lifestyle changes can help you manage it effectively and efficiently
Thyroid Health and General Wellness
The thyroid gland partakes in reproductive functions including regulating your period, ovulation and conception. It has an influence on your overall reproductive health and fertility. If your results indicate a thyroid disorder, consult your doctor and take corrective measures
Non Classical Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia
NCCAH is a genetic condition that causes a lack of genital ambiguity. Women with NCCAH experience excess male-like hair growth, irregular menstruation, and lowered fertility potential. If your results indicate an elevated risk for NCCAH, working with your doctor to understand the cause of the condition coupled with medications and follow-up treatment procedures can help you manage the condition effectively and efficiently
Hyperprolactinemia is a condition in which high levels of prolactin are detected in the blood which may disrupt the normal production and functions of the other reproductive hormones including LH and FSH. As a result, ovulation may be disrupted and this may influence your overall fertility. High prolactin levels are also associated with poor uterus lining preparation for embryo implantation
Functional Hypothalamic Amenorrhea
FHA is the absence of menstruation caused when the hypothalamus does not send signals to your body to produce FSH, E2 and LH. If your results indicate an elevated risk for FHA, consulting your doctor and understanding the cause of the condition coupled with medications and follow-up treatments can help you manage the condition
Ovarian reserve is like a bank that doesn’t take deposits though you’re withdrawing from it each month. The level of AMH in your blood can help doctors estimate the total number of eggs left in your ovarian reserve that can potentially be fertilized by sperm and result in pregnancy.
Egg Freezing and IVF Outcomes
Testing AMH can help you understand if egg freezing is a potential option to consider along with your chances of having a live birth using those frozen eggs. If your results indicate a rich ovarian reserve, you may choose to preserve your fertility for future use or you may consult a Fertility Specialist to plan accordingly
Ovulation is the process your body goes through while releasing an egg. LH surges are necessary for ovulation and PRL triggers ovulation which allows eggs to develop and mature fully. Testing your hormones can help ensure there’s nothing interfering with ovulation.
OvaScore test must be taken on Day 3 of your menstrual cycle as this is when your hormones are at a baseline and therefore gives an accurate understanding of your reproductive health. An ideal time for collection is in the morning after having fasted for at least 8 - 10 hours
