Get started with an assessment.
A Fertility Assessment is a way to learn more about your fertility and your options. It includes a 1:1 consultation, fertility hormone testing, an ultrasound of your ovaries, and a personalized plan for your next steps. Assessments are covered by most major insurance plans.
Here’s What You Should Know About Fertility
The reality is, you’re never too young (or too old) to learn more about your body, your fertility, and better understand where things stand. The good news is it’s possible to be proactive with your fertility care. A great first step is coming in for a personalized Fertility Assessment.
When it comes to fertility, the most important thing to think about is our age.
It's all about the eggs.
We are born with all the eggs we’re ever going to have – about 2 million. By the time we reach our first period, we’re already down to 300,000-400,000 eggs (totally unfair, we know). From there – whether we’re on birth control and actually bleed or not – we lose up to 1,000 eggs every month.
Quality is just as important as quantity.
As we get older, the quantity of our eggs declines, but the quality declines too. Poor egg quality could result in a higher rate of miscarriage or having a child with a genetic abnormality.
Knowledge is power.
Doctors typically point to 35 as the age at which fertility declines. But, this isn’t just a switch that turns off one day. As we age, our eggs age with us. In addition, 1 in 20 women experiences premature low ovarian reserve under the age of 35.
Fertility Assessments are covered by most major insurance plans and include fertility hormone testing, ultrasound, and 1:1 consultation with a fertility specialist. Assessments include all of the below, but laboratory fees may be extra if not covered by insurance.
A blood test of the AMH hormone, which is produced in your ovaries
Hormones involved in the ovulation process can be measured to provide a better sense of your current ovarian reserve. The Anti-Mullerian Hormone (AMH), which is released by your eggs as they grow, is one of the most reliable measures of your ovarian reserve. Your levels of AMH levels can be measured through a simple blood test.
A vaginal ultrasound that lets us count the number of egg cells in your ovaries
Follicles are small bumps on your ovaries that contain the eggs released every cycle during menstruation. The number of follicles detected can indicate the number of eggs available in a given month.
A medical exam and family history review
Your age, lifestyle, medical history, and genetic background can all contribute to your fertility. These factors will be assessed and taken into account by our fertility specialists when creating a personalized plan.
A personalized plan based on your results and your personal fertility goals
You will have a 1:1 meeting with one of our fertility specialists to discuss your results and your family planning goals. The specialist will work with you to come up with a personalized plan that works for you.
