PRE-DIAGNOSTICS

The American Fertility Medical Center administers Pre-Diagnostic Tests to ensure the AFMC Care Team is able to gain as much information to implement an appropriate, individually tailored fertility treatment at the start of a patient’s fertility journey.


ANTI-MULLERIAN HORMONE (AMH) TEST


Anti-Mullerian Hormone (AMH) is a protein hormone produced by cells within the ovarian follicles. An AFMC physician will be able to test the level of the hormone within the blood to estimate the number of follicles inside the ovaries, and accordingly, the female patient’s egg count. If the Pre-Diagnostic Test has not been administered recently, AFMC is able to administer the test.


LUTEINIZING HORMONE (LH) TEST


Luteinizing Hormone (LH) is a gonadotrophic hormone that is produced and released in the anterior pituitary gland. The Luteinizing Hormone’s role in the control in the function of ovaries in females as the hormone causes the ovaries to release an egg during a female’s ovulation, as well as stimulate progesterone to sustain a pregnancy. An AFMC physician will conduct the LH Test to determine if there is a potential hormone imbalance. If the Pre-Diagnostic Test has not been administered recently, AFMC is able to administer the test.


ESTRADIOL (E2) TEST


Estradiol (E2) is one of two within the 2 major biologically active estrogens in nonpregnant females. Specifically, E2 plays an essential role in a female’s reproductive system as it is necessary for the development of the female’s reproductive system. The E2 test is administered by an AFMC physician as females tend to have higher amounts of E2 during their reproductive years, which decreases as a female nears menopause. If the Pre-Diagnostic Test has not been administered recently, AFMC is able to administer the test.


PROGESTERONE (P4) TEST


Progesterone (P4) belongs to a group of steroid hormones called progestogens. The P4 hormone plays a vital role in a female’s pregnancy as the hormone does the preparation of the uterus to support a fertilized egg, as well as the maintenance of the early stages of pregnancy. An AFMC physician will conduct a P4 Test to measure the overall P4 levels in the blood. If the Pre-Diagnostic Test has not been administered recently, AFMC is able to administer the test.


THYROID STIMULATING HORMONE (TSH) TEST


The Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) is produced by the pituitary gland and tells a person’s thyroid to release the thyroid hormone into the blood. An AFMC physician conducts the TSH Test to measure for any potential abnormal thyroid function and if a thyroid disease may be the cause of infertility. If the Pre-Diagnostic Test has not been administered recently, AFMC is able to administer the test.


FOLLICLE STIMULATING HORMONE (FSH) TEST


The Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) is essential to the function of a female’s ovaries as the hormone stimulates the growth of eggs in the ovary and increases as the egg releases during ovulation. The FSH Test is done to check the level of the hormone in the blood to determine a potential cause of infertility. If the Pre-Diagnostic Test has not been administered recently, AFMC is able to administer the test.


SEXUALLY TRANSMITTED DISEASE (STD) TEST


Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs) are passed through orally, vaginally, or anally during unprotected intercourse. An AFMC physician conducts an STD Test as some of the most common STDs have the potential to cause infertility. If the Pre-Diagnostic Test has not been administered recently, AFMC is able to administer the test.


ULTRASOUND


Ultrasounds are an essential part of each patient’s infertility testing process and fertility treatment. The overall goal of an ultrasound is to provide the AFMC Care Team information of the female’s ovaries and reserves; endometrial lining; uterus and uterine lining; as well as the fallopian tubes. As the female patient is within the fertility treatment journey, ultrasounds will be utilized in different methods depending on the chosen treatment. If the Pre-Diagnostic Test has not been administered recently, AFMC is able to administer the test.


The American Fertility Medical Center (AFMC) is an assisted reproductive technology (A.R.T) medical center, genetics laboratory, and research institution equipped with an internationally experienced medical and management team. Beyond that, we are a team that come to work every day to help solve one of the common, unspoken issues individuals and couples internationally experience – infertility. At AFMC, we understand one journey to fertility is different to another and we also understand infertility is not everyone’s journey. Still we aspire to join into a diversity of journeys to learn, support, advocate, and build for each family.
