Blood Test

  • A fertility blood test is used to measure your hormone levels and is usually the first fertility test that your doctor will prescribe if you are finding it difficult to conceive and suspect that you may be infertile.
  • Blood test results are primarily used to detect hormonal causes of infertility. The blood test is taken at the start of your menstrual cycle (days 2 to 5) and typically measure levels of the hormones FSH, LH, oestradiol and sometimes prolactin.

  • Blood tests are often performed alongside a semen analysis which allows your doctor to find out whether the problem is due to male or female-related fertility problems.
