A team of industry-leading experts on hand to guide you through your fertility journey

Female Fertility Tests

Female fertility tests look at key indicators of female reproductive health to determine a woman’s likelihood of becoming pregnant. All female fertility tests are reviewed and discussed with you by an experienced consultant gynaecologist.


What are female fertility tests?

Female fertility tests are specialist investigations that assess factors that could influence a woman’s ability to conceive. This could include:

  • Ovarian reserve – The number of eggs in your ovaries. A low ovarian reserve can reduce the chances of conception.
  • Ovulation – If an egg is not released from the ovaries a pregnancy cannot occur.
  • Fallopian tubes – Fertilisation happens in the fallopian tubes. Any damage or blockage in the fallopian tubes could stop the sperm reaching the egg.
  • Endometriosis – A condition where tissue that usually only grows inside of the uterus also grows in other parts of the body. This can interfere with conception.
  • Fibroids – Non-cancerous growths in or around the uterus that could stop a successful pregnancy.

Who should have this test?

The tests that are suitable for you will depend on factors like your fertility history and medical background. When you become a patient of Fertility Solutions, we will help you work out which tests would be most useful to you.

In general, anyone who is trying or thinking of trying for a baby may benefit from female fertility tests, especially if:

  • You have been trying to conceive for more than 6 months and/ or
  • The female partner is over 30 years old


What tests do we offer?

We pride ourselves on our patient focused, individualised approach. The way that we test female fertility varies from patient to patient and could include:

  • Hormone Testing - Egg quantity declines with age with a quicker decline seen during your mid-to-late thirties. A hormone blood test is a quick and easy way to check your ovarian reserve. We look at hormones like AMH (anti mullerian hormone), FSH (follicle stimulating hormone), and E2 (estradiol) to assess the number of eggs in your ovaries.
  • Hysterosalpingogram - An X-ray to check whether your fallopian tubes are blocked. A small tube is placed into the opening of the cervix and fluid visible on X-rays is injected through your cervix into the uterus and fallopian tubes.
  • Trans-vaginal ultrasound - A small ultrasound probe is placed into the vagina to visualise the size, shape, and position of the uterus and ovaries. The test allows us to see any abnormalities like fibroids, cysts, or polyps, that could interfere with fertility.
