Our fertility package is perfect for you who are thinking about or trying to have children and want to control how your body feels. The samples in our fertility package are intended to control various hormones that affect fertility, as well as samples that give you a deeper understanding of your menstrual cycle and ovarian function (ovarian function).
What is included in the fertility package?
A complete blood count will be taken to rule out various causes that may affect the blood count. In the case of vitamin and mineral deficiencies, it is common for blood values to be affected. This in turn can affect fertility and pregnancy. In the event of an anemia, you need to look at more blood values to get a deeper understanding of what it is that may be behind the anemia.
The following samples are therefore included in our blood status:
Hemoglobin is a protein found in our blood cells and helps transport oxygen to the body. Hemoglobin is a simple test that can reflect how the body feels and also indicate deficiency of various kinds. With low hemoglobin, the body is affected in many ways and the ovaries and ovulation are something that can be affected.
Measure of the proportion of red blood cells in the blood. This test is not interpreted separately but is part of the assessment of blood status. The sample is used to investigate the underlying causes of a possible anemia.
Platelets or platelets as they are also called in everyday speech are important for blood coagulation. In cases of haemorrhagic diseases, inflammation and coagulation diseases, among other things, an effect on platelets is seen.
MCH is a measure of the average amount of hemoglobin in a red blood cell. This test is not interpreted separately but is part of the assessment of blood status. The sample is used to investigate the underlying causes of a possible anemia.
The number of erythrocytes, red blood cells, in the blood. If you have too few red blood cells, it indicates that you have anemia. This test is not interpreted separately but is part of the assessment of blood status. The sample is used to investigate the underlying causes of a possible anemia.
MCV is a measure of the average volume of red blood cells and helps to evaluate the appearance of the red blood cell. This test is not interpreted separately but is part of the assessment of blood status. The sample is used to investigate the underlying causes of a possible anemia.
Estradiol is a female sex hormone and a form of estrogen. The levels of estradiol differ depending on where in your menstrual cycle you are. Estradiol is secreted by egg follicles in the ovaries and the level can therefore be used to control the function and activity of the ovaries.
Prolactin is a hormone that has several functions during and after a pregnancy. Prolactin has the task of blocking the secretion of the reproductive hormones follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and gonadotropin. Reproductive hormones are important for ovulation and egg maturation. Excessive levels of prolactin in a non-pregnant woman can therefore cause infertility, why one chooses to measure prolactin in connection with a fertility examination.
Progesterone is a hormone that is mainly produced by the ovaries. It has the role of helping one fertilized eggs to be implanted in the uterus. Progesterone also has the task of preparing the body for a pregnancy by helping do the uterine environment more favorable infront of the pregnancy and reduces the risk of premature contractions of the uterus.
In women, FSH has the task of getting eggthe follicles and eggs in the ovaries to grow. By measuring FSH, you can get information on how the ovaries works but also gain more understanding of a woman's menstrual cycle. The levels vary during the menstrual cycle, so it is important to know where in your cycle you are. Elevated levels can be a sign that you are approaching menopause. Too low values may indicate that you are not producing any eggs.
Antimülleriskt hormone (AMH) is a hormone produced in eggfollicles. AMH has an important role both before and during a pregnancy. Since each follicle produces AMH, the AMH level reflects the number of follicles and thus eggs that the woman has in her ovaries. Low values of AMH may indicate failure of the ovaries. Note that AMH does not say anything about the quality of the eggs but only gives an indication of how many eggs you have in the ovaries.
TSH is a hormone that regulates thyroid hormoneet T4. TSH and T4 usually go hand in hand and their levels affect each other, which is why they are often measured together. At both too high and too low levels of thyroid hormone, fertility can be affected. Too low levels can cause elevated prolactin levels which in turn causes ovulation problems. At too high levels, the risk of miscarriage increases.
Folate is a B vitamin and plays an important role in cell division and blood formation in the body. Folate is also important for the development and quality of the eggs and also has an impact on the implantation process. Folate playing also a role in the production of milk in pregnant mothers and counteracts birth defects in the fetus.
Creatinine is a residual product formed during the degradation of creatine phosphate (energy reserve in muscles). Creatinine leaves the body via the kidneys into the urine. You use creatinine as an indirect measure of renal function. Kidney function reflects the body's health and is a basic test that provides a lot of information.
White blood cells, leukocytes, are an important marker for inflammation in the body. Inflammation of the fallopian tubes or uterus can affect fertility. It is good to rule out an inflammatory cause for any difficulty in getting pregnant.
The tests in our fertility package aim to check various hormones that affect fertility, and tests that give you a deeper understanding of your menstrual cycle and ovarian function (function of the ovaries). Metabolism via the thyroid gland, B vitamin status, kidney function tests and a blood status are also included in the package. It should be mentioned that fertility is complex and that a sample taken with us does not rule out another cause of possible infertility. Many of the samples should not be interpreted separately but should be part of a joint assessment. Fertility woman does not replace an investigation for infertility. If you have had difficulty getting pregnant, you should contact a fertility clinic. Below you can read briefly about which samples are included in the package and why we choose to check these values. All analyzes take place at an ISO 15189-accredited laboratory in Sweden.
