Repeating all my fertility tests all over again

  1.  Anna Lincoln

    Hello there, my name is Anna and I’m 36. About 4.5 years ago, I took a series of fertility tests to check my fertility status. It wasn’t because I was trying to conceive, but because someone was conducting a study at university and I decided to help him. Today I’m actually trying to conceive, but I found that I can’t get pregnant after almost a year trying to so so. I don’t understand, because in that moment everything was as it should. Could my fertility has changed after nearly 4 years? Will I have to repeat all the tests all over again?

    Dear Anna,

    female fertility keeps on diminishing over time, as the woman gets older, especially from age 35 onwards and more markedly after the age of 40 up until menopause. This means that yes, the results of your hormone analyses may have changed considerably if compared to those you obtained 4.5 years ago.

    My advice in your case is that you repeat all the tests all over again to determine what is the reason that is your hindering your possibilities of getting pregnant.

    I hope I have been able to help,
