Why check your fertility?

The “My Fertility IQ” program provides insight into your current reproductive health, not a prediction of future fertility. It is important to remember that fertility declines with age and other factors, meaning your fertility is ever changing. So choose to stay informed with periodic testing.

Every individual's journey is unique, but knowledge is universally empowering. Take the step to understand your body better and plan your future with clarity and confidence

Egg Quality & Age

A woman is born with a finite number of eggs, and as she ages, both the quality and quantity of her eggs gradually decline. This natural progression generally accelerates after the age of 35, which can potentially influence the chances of conception and the health of the offspring.

To guide you through this journey, our program focuses on providing critical insights into your egg quality, helping you to make informed decisions about your reproductive health and family planning strategies.

Sperm Quality & Age

Contrary to popular belief, age also affects sperm quality in men. Although men produce new sperm throughout their lives, the quality of the sperm tends to decline gradually over time, particularly after the age of 40. This decline might affect fertility potential and can have implications on the health of the future child.

What fertility tests are commonly part of My Fertility IQ?

Hormone Blood Tests: These blood tests evaluate various hormones (AMH, FSH, LH, Estradiol, Testosterone, Progesterone) to assess both egg and sperm quantity and quality.

Ovarian Reserve Testing: A combination of hormone blood tests (AMH, Day 3 FSH) and vaginal ultrasound evaluates if your egg count is in a normal range for your age. It also helps predict how you may respond to various fertility treatments.

Transvaginal Ultrasound: An internal ultrasound can evaluate the uterus and ovaries. This test helps determine antral follicle count (a marker of ovarian reserve of eggs), as well as diagnose ovarian cysts, fibroids, polyps, or other malformations.

Saline Infusion Sonohysterogram (SIS): This specialized transvaginal ultrasound procedure is used to evaluate the uterus and the fallopian tubes. Sterile saline fluid is infused inside the uterus via a thin catheter, allowing your physician to visualize the uterine shape and cavity, while assessing the patency (openness) of your fallopian tubes.

Semen Analysis: This sperm sample test evaluates complete sperm health, including volume, concentration (number of sperm), motility (swimming ability), morphology (sperm shape), and if there are any infections present.

Sperm DNA Fragmentation (DFI): Sperm DNA Fragmentation index (DFI) is a sperm test that measures any damage to the DNA, the genetic material of the sperm.

Are there any specific requirements or preparations for My Fertility IQ testing? Depending on your personalized diagnostic plan, preparation for fertility testing may involve specific instructions regarding medication, fasting, or timing related to your menstrual cycle.  Your care team will provide specific instructions prior to your tests to ensure you are fully informed on what to do and what to expect for your tests.

Who should have My Fertility IQ testing done? At Pollin, we believe that having a clear picture, and understanding of one’s own fertility and reproductive health is important for everyone and at any age. Whether you have a suspected or diagnosed reproductive health issue, have experienced pregnancy loss, or simply curious about your fertility health, fertility testing empowers you to move forward on your current or future fertility journey with more clarity and confidence.
