Gynaecology is the field of medicine involving the treatment of female reproductive health. Whatever your age, you will get an extensive range of services, from sophisticated diagnostics to management of adolescent gynaecological disorders, menstrual disorders, urinary tract infections, fibroids and so on.
If you wish to decide to have the Ovarian reserve test at your home and at your convenience then
please follow 3 easy steps.
Test kit arrives home by post, blood self-drawn and posts it back
Blood sample gets analysed in the laboratory and report gets emailed back with the interpretation (normal, borderline, reduced, severely reduced)
Anti-Mullerian Hormone (AMH) is the best current available measure of ovarian reserve for different clinical conditions.
The AMH test is used as a representative of a woman’s ovarian reserve or the remaining ovarian egg supply. With growing age, the number of small ovarian follicles decreases, so, in turn, the level of AMH in the blood will decrease.
Few women often wait too long to address their desire to conceive and sometimes miss their window for successful pregnancy.
Without an easily available test for assessing egg supply, women have had to make decisions about when to have children with little or no information about their personal risk of diminished ovarian reserve.
If you are under 35 and wish to delay pregnancy for personal reasons, consider scheduling fertility testing to assess ovarian reserve.
Anti-Müllerian hormone, or AMH, is present in very immature follicles within a woman’s ovarian reserve. A blood test administered at any time during a woman’s cycle measures AMH released by these egg-bearing follicles. AMH concentrations slowly decrease with increasing age until becoming undetectable about 5 years before the menopause.
Many studies have convincingly demonstrated that AMH is the best currently available measure of ovarian reserve under a variety of clinical situations, such as infertility treatment (especially IVF), the forecasting of reproductive lifespan, ovarian dysfunction (especially polycystic ovary syndrome) and ovarian surgery as well as premature ovarian insufficiency.
While it cannot provide definitive answers, this test is considered as an essential element in a full fertility workup, particularly for women of advanced maternal age (over 35), those with a history of failed IVF cycles or family history of premature ovarian failure.
Other reasons for evaluating your future fertility potential include:
Results from AMH testing may warrant proactive fertility treatment and also take necessary actions before the precious time has been missed.
Based on the results of the test, sometimes additional tests may be needed.
One should be aware that the AMH test will not give an indication as to egg quality. However, the higher the level of AMH and the bigger the pool of small follicles.

Non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT) is a new approach to testing whether a baby may be affected by a chromosome disorder. From a small sample of the mother’s blood, we are able to identify certain chromosomal conditions, such as Down syndrome.
During pregnancy, some of the baby’s DNA circulates in the mother’s blood stream. DNA is the substance that our chromosomes are made of and contains all our genetic information.
Usually, each human being has 46 chromosomes, arranged in 23 pairs. Occasionally, a baby is born with three copies of a particular chromosome, rather than two. This is known as a trisomy. The most common trisomies are Down syndrome, Edwards syndrome and Patau syndrome.
By analyzing the baby’s DNA found in the mother’s blood, we can detect whether or not there are abnormalities in the baby’s chromosomes.
