Common Misconceptions About Fertility Tests

Should you consider a fertility test? When is the best time to have a fertility test? What type of tests are available? These are all questions that we get asked about our fertility testing. Most people don’t really consider fertility tests until after they have been trying to conceive for a while. But this can really delay your journey to creating a family and you’ll find that fertility testing can actually be very beneficial.

Here at London IVF and Genetics Centre, we can offer you high quality fertility testing in Milton Keynes, making it easy for you to know where you stand with your own fertility. We’ve found that many people are hesitant to get themselves tested, perhaps because they have a number of misconceptions about the test. There are a number misconceptions surrounding infertility, and the tests and treatments that help to combat it. Below, we have highlighted some of the common misconceptions, surrounding fertility tests.

Are Fertility Treatments Just for those who are Infertile?

How would you know if you’re infertile if you haven’t been properly tested? Infertility is actually surprisingly difficult to spot, especially as it can take a number of months to conceive even if you’re not infertile. And if you do suspect that something is wrong, how will you know exactly what is wrong or how to bypass these issues? It’s best for you to book yourself in for a fertility MOT at our clinic. This will take you through all of the fertility tests you need to make sure that everything is working the way that it should. 

But, I’m young, Shouldn’t Everything be Working Properly?

As women age, the number and quality of eggs they have tend to deteriorate, making it much harder for you to conceive. This can be incredibly frustrating and our fertility tests can help to identify any issues you might be facing. But, age isn’t the only thing that can impact your fertility, so there’s no need to wait to get yourself properly checked out. Fertility testing is for everyone and you’ll save yourself a lot of time and heartbreak by getting yourself fully checked out.

Will Just One Test Be Enough?

This misconception is one that we can explain. We want to ensure your fertility journey is as straightforward and transparent as possible, which is why we offer a fertility MOT. This service allows you to take a number of fertility tests in Milton Keynes. We leave no stone unturned when we’re running our tests because we want to make sure that you have all the information that you need to improve your fertility. Having all of your tests done at the same time and from the same clinic can offer you real peace of mind and confidence in your fertility journey. 

Are Fertility Tests Only for Women?

This is a big misconception that can really impact your journey to parenthood. While there are certainly a number of different ways that a woman can find herself infertal, the blame is often aimed at males. Low sperm counts, low sperm quality, lazy or slow moving sperm, or abnormal sperm morphology can all impact a man’s fertility and could seriously damage your chances of pregnancy. Fortunately, we offer fertility testing for both men and women, ensuring that you have the full picture for your fertility journey.
