Your normal ovarian cycle is so complex that even a slight change can disrupt it and prevent you from ovulating. Your ovulation might be abnormal or perhaps you’re experiencing anovulation (the absence of ovulation) - there are a number of reasons for both of these situations and some are treatable with drugs and lifestyle changes. Essentially, if you’re having problems with your ovulation, you’re releasing less eggs than normal or none at all and that means you have fewer opportunities to get pregnant. Approximately 25 per cent of all infertile women have problems related to ovulation.

For some time, Genea has offered a simple, inexpensive blood test to measure the level of Anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH) in our female patients. Colloquially known as the Egg Timer Test, it’s a useful predictor of the number of functionally useful eggs remaining in your ovaries (your Genea Oxford Fertility Specialist might refer to this as your ovarian reserve). It can also be used as a predictor of the quality of your response to IVF treatment.
Get in touch with us if you are interested in having this test.
