Fertility - Infertility

Hormonal tests

Hormonal testing is an irreplaceable tool in investigating and treating infertility.

Ovulation problems are a major cause of female infertility. Follicular development, selection and follicle maturation, as well as maturation and oocyte ovulation, are all processes regulated by complex hormonal mechanisms. Measurements of hormone levels at certain days of the cycle can help diagnose abnormalities in the cycle, ovulation, etc.

Furthermore, the measurement of FSH and E2 levels at the beginning of the cycle allows us to roughly determine the so-called "biological age" of the ovary and its ability to develop follicles.

In special cases, hormone testing is supplemented with measurements of testosterone, free testosterone, Δ4- Androstenedione, dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), DHEA sulfate, sex hormone-binding globulin (SHGB) and 17-hydroxyprogesterone (17OH-PRG). In thyroid disorders, an endocrinologist’s examination is considered necessary and, depending on his/her recommendations, TSH, T3, T4, anti-thyroid antibodies, thyroid ultrasound, etc. are performed.
