The babystart® FertilCheck™ Female Fertility screening test for women measures the sex hormone that is an indicator of their biological fertility clock. A woman's fertility starts to decline after she gets to 30 and the decline gradually accelerates until she gets to menopause. This reduction in fertility is reflected in a similar gradual increase in the hormone FSH (follicle stimulating hormone). Rising levels of FSH tend to be associated with reduced fertility. The FSH hormone can also be raised in women with irregular periods and without doubt will steadily rise as a woman gets older. As menopause approaches the levels get particularly high and act as an early warning system for peri-menopause.
The babystart® FertilCheck™ Female Fertility home diagnostic screening test is a rapid test of FSH concentration in urine. The kit contains two ECOstrip™Midstream Female Fertility tests and if both test results are positive it is an indicator of reduced fertility. The test is greater than 99% accurate.
With this test a negative result is going to be good news although its not proof of fertility. A positive test result suggests that fertility is reduced and we recommend that a woman see her doctor to discuss the results and perhaps have more tests done.
The babystart® FertilCheck™ Female Fertility test will allow you to test your fertility potential, privately and discreetly in your own home.
