How it works?

For your part, all is needed is a simple blood draw from your arm. Then your sample is shipped in appropriate packaging to certified laboratories for the most thorough and advanced look at the possible genetic causes of your infertility. The answer is available approximately 2-3 weeks after your sample is received from the laboratories. 

Guidelines and recommendations of Medical Societies 

Many professional medical societies, including the American Society of Reproductive Medicine (ASRM), the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) and the American Urology Society (AUA), recommend that men and women with infertility be genetically screened.

To which women is referred the female fertility screening ?

Any woman who wants to know the possible genetic risks of infertility before IVF or conception. Early knowledge and awareness will later reduce costs, save time, and save stress by giving you and your doctors better preparation and choices to achieve a healthy pregnancy.

Consult your doctor about the benefits of fertility testing if you have experienced any of the following:

  • Known family history of fertility problems.
  • Failure to become pregnant after trying to conceive for six months or longer.
  • History of more than one miscarriages.
