Home fertility tests

One in seven couples in the UK experience fertility problems and have difficulty conceiving a child, making "sub-fertility" a fairly common problem. It also seems that the incidence of ‘sub-fertility’ is increasing. Men now account for more fertility issues within couples having difficulties conceiving than women. Male factors are usually diagnosed using a semen analysis.

 

Women lose their fertility as they get older because their eggs age and are more likely to be abnormal or abnormally fertilised and the rate of miscarriage also increases. 

 

With age the number one factor affecting fertility, early detection of any potential issue is an important step in helping couples to achieve their dream of conceiving and having a baby. Couples experiencing difficulties conceiving may have to wait 12 months before undergoing doctor-led tests to pinpoint infertility problems.

 

New home fertility tests have been introduced in the UK which can help to highlight potential issues with conceiving. Results from such tests can be taken sraight to your GP. So if you're wondering, "why can't I get pregnant?", one of these tests may help.
