When it’s time to start your family, Midwest Fertility Specialists understands you may have many questions about your fertility and your chances of getting pregnant. Our team has made it easy to get your questions answered with our convenient Fertility Check.
Our Fertility Check offers couples or individuals three basic fertility tests for just $99. Request an appointment to schedule yours today.
Day 3 FSH Test and Estradiol Test
The Fertility Check is comprised of the following two female tests: Day 3 FSH Test and Estradiol Test. A Day 3 FSH test is a blood test that measures ovarian function based on the levels of follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) in your body. An Estradiol Test then measures the amount of estradiol, a form of estrogen, in your body and helps validate your FSH levels.
For both female tests, a blood draw must be scheduled two days after your first full day of menstrual flow. If you would like to move forward with the Fertility Check, please call the Midwest Fertility offices at 317.571.1637 on the first day of your full menstrual flow. At that time, your blood tests will be scheduled for two days later. Appointments can be made by calling Monday through Sunday, and appointment times are available Monday through Saturday. Please call to schedule an appointment even if the first full day of your menstrual flow falls on a weekend.
The Fertility Check is comprised of one male test: a semen analysis. The analysis measures key indicators for sperm health, including number of sperm, shape of the sperm and sperm motility (or the movement and speed of the sperm).
The semen analysis must be scheduled ahead of time and should be scheduled at the same time as the female tests (if you are testing with your partner). If you would like to move forward with the Fertility Check, please contact our Carmel or Fort Wayne offices to schedule your semen analysis. Once scheduled, the specimen is collected on site in one of our specially designed private rooms. We ask that men abstain from ejaculating for two to five days prior to the scheduled semen analysis.
Results and Next Steps
Your Fertility Check results are generally available four business days after the date of collection. Once your tests have been reviewed by a physician, our office will contact you regarding the best next steps or recommended follow up.
Fertility Check results are not 100 percent predictive of your reproductive potential, but they help us to start a conversation about your current status and potential options moving forward.
