Which blood test should I chose?
« on: 18/02/21, 00:06 »
Hi  :)
I'm almost 37 and trying for a baby. I have never been to the doctor so I have no idea if there are any problems with my fertility. I'm planning on going for a private Pelvic Scan Fertility + 1 Bloods. Which of these do you think would be most important to get please?.

FSH
LH
Oestradiol
Progesterone

Thanks

    If you can only choose one Id have your fsh tested, ideally you would want all of them tested as youd get a much better idea of where your body is at fertility wise.

    Hi there

    I would also add AMH in there too, will give you an idea of ovarian reserve

    Good luck

    Hi

    All of them are important!  One test in isolation won't give enough of a picture.  Also, FSH/E2 bloods need to be taken on day 2-4 of your period for accuracy.

    I would also add Thyroid if you can as abnormal results are a big factor in potential implantation failure and miscarriage.  You need to actually get the TSH results which MUST be between 1 and 2 for fertility.  Many doctors will say your thyroid is normal at 2 and above but it is not normal for fertility.

    Best of luck,
