Fertility Test For Women in Manchester
Planning a pregnancy can be daunting and is often the first time we question if we are in good health. We can examine you and perform routine bloods. We can also offer you a fertility test in Manchester to check your hormones and AMH (anti-müllerian hormone) level to guide you on your egg reserve.
In women, cells inside the follicles of the ovaries produce AMH. Follicles are tiny fluid-filled sacs in the ovary that contain and release eggs.
AMH levels correspond to the number of eggs you have or your ovarian reserve:
- Higher AMH levels mean more eggs and a higher ovarian reserve.
- Lower AMH levels mean fewer eggs and a lower ovarian reserve.

Don’t worry alone, we’re here to help.
WHAT DOES AN AMH TEST TELL YOU?
An AMH test tells you the number of remaining eggs you have and whether your ovaries might be aging too quickly. It may reveal that you have a shorter window to get pregnant.
An AMH test may also reveal how well you respond to injectable fertility drugs to stimulate your ovaries to mature multiple eggs in preparation for in vitro fertilization (IVF).
WHAT CAN’T AN AMH TEST TELL YOU?
While AMH is connected to your egg count, it doesn’t predict your fertility (with or without treatments), or when you’ll go through menopause.
Also, keep in mind that even if your AMH levels are in the typical range, other factors may influence your ability to conceive, such as:
- Age, medical conditions, smoking, etc.
- Sperm count and motility.
- Not ovulating regularly, blocked fallopian tubes, pelvic scarring, endometriosis and uterine abnormalities like fibroids.
Should you wish we can refer you to our partners, Starlight Ultrasound in Hale, to exclude structural issues that could impact fertility or a future pregnancy such as polyps, large fibroids or polycystic ovaries.
