Ovarian Reserve Fertility Test
Dears Pharmacy provides the LetsGetChecked Ovarian Reserve fertility test in all 5 of their pharmacies. This test measures the level of AMH (Anti-Mullerian Hormone) in a woman’s blood. In simple terms, this gives a good indication of the number of eggs you have left, providing you with valuable information about your fertility potential.
The Ovarian Reserve requires a small blood sample that you can take from the convenience of your own home. Fertility testing facilitates the accurate monitoring of a woman’s reproductive status over time.
