Wondering About Your Fertility?
If becoming a parent is one of your future goals, there is no better time than right now to understand your fertility status. The earlier you have your fertility checked, the better you will be able to plan for the future when you decide to pursue parenthood.
Why get a Fertility Awareness Checkup?
A Fertility Awareness Checkup will help you in your quest to plan a family by providing an initial overview of your reproductive potential. This will help alleviate stress, as well as save valuable time and financial resources in your journey to become a parent.
What is a Fertility Awareness Checkup?
This checkup includes the most predictive fertility testing to date to determine your potential for getting pregnant. For women, the checkup includes two blood tests and an ultrasound (called an Antral Follicle Count).
Who should get tested?
Approximately half of infertility cases involve female fertility issues, so any woman who plans to be a parent in the future should consider being tested. We also offer male fertility testing for a separate fee.
Fertility Testing For Women:
Four (4) blood tests are recommended — Anti-Mullerian Hormone (AMH), Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH), Luteinizing Hormone (LH) and Estradiol (E2) measurements. These will provide information about your basic fertility status. The four blood tests measure the function of your ovaries and tell us about your fertility potential. The best time to have these tests performed is between Days 1 and 4 of your menstrual cycle. Call us at 646-792-7476 (New York) or 702-533-2691 (Las Vegas) so that we can facilitate you undergoing these tests along with a transvaginal ultrasound (usually be performed on the same day). Please contact us on Day-1 of your cycle . If Day-1 falls on a weekend please call the following Monday to determine which day is best for your tests to be performed. Those of you who reside outside of the New York area will be directed to your local physician’s (Gynecologist’s) office for the tests to be performed. Those who reside in the New York area, can undergo such testing onsite at our SFS Manhattan facility. We will follow up by phone or via secure email and results be uploaded to your patient portal.
While these results do not give a definitive analysis of all possible fertility issues, they offer an estimate of your fertility potential. You should also be aware that these tests do not guarantee future fertility, but the results will help answer questions about when and how to start planning your family.
How much does it cost?
When the Fertility Awareness Checkup is performed by us, on location at SFS in New York, the fee will be $150 paid, at the testing visit.
Fertility Testing For Men:
Why is the semen analysis so important?
Together with the evaluation of the female’s ovarian reserve, confirmation of ovulatory status and normalcy of uterus and tubes (by hysterosalpingography, saline ultrasound and hysteroscopy), the assessment of the male by the semen analysis constitute the more critical tests to be performed by a couple trying to conceive. Keep in mind that:
- Male infertility is present in 30-50% of couples.
- It is truly unacceptable that females undergo diagnosis and treatment without a prior thorough examination of the semen.
- The semen analysis therefore must be performed as an initial test, in order not to delay proper diagnosis and undergo unnecessary and inefficient treatments.
- The male partner should receive a complete semen evaluation by a properly accredited and experienced laboratory, after 3-4 days of abstinence The routine evaluation consists of the so-called “basic semen analysis”. At our New York center, this analysis is performed microscopically by trained technicians, is also computer-aided as appropriate, and is supervised by a CAP and ABB Board-Certified Laboratory Director.
