Fertility Check Up
Our fertility test is perfect for patients who wish to check their current fertility
This unique service allows you to visit our fertility centre and get a clearer picture of your current fertility and what your potential future fertility may look like.
A Fertility MOT is a series of tests that will help you to understand your fertility and ability to conceive. We have three tests to choose from for women, men, and couples.
Female Fertility MOT / Test
Female fertility test, or Fertility MOT, will help you to understand your fertility status. It will help you to understand your ability to conceive. Some women use this to decide whether to delay having a baby until the time is right (often if they are yet to find the right partner). For many women, it is also the first step in deciding whether to have egg freezing or treatment using donor sperm. This appointment will help you make the decision about whether you need treatment and what would be right for you.
What to expect?
The pelvic ultrasound scan is an internal scan of the womb and the ovaries. Although for some women this may be a little uncomfortable it will allow us to get a much better result than with an abdominal scan. The results of these tests will then be ready for a consultation with a fertility specialist.
The results of your tests will be discussed with your consultant who will advise you on your fertility status as well as provide advice on any changes that may be required to your lifestyle to improve your health and maximise your fertility potential. They will also discuss with you if any assistance that may be needed to help you conceive. If you require fertility treatment, The iTrust Fertility Clinic offers a personalised care plan to give you the very best chance of pregnancy. A cost of treatment, including the cost of medication, will be given to you following your initial consultation.
A consultation with a fertility specialist consultant

Blood tests that measure a hormone known as Anti-Mullerian Hormone (AMH), which will give an idea about your ovarian reserve
Who should book a female fertility check up appointment?
- You just want to know about your fertility health for your own future plans or you are thinking about freezing your eggs
- You are thinking about having treatment with donor sperm

If your results from a fertility check show that treatment is advisable, your fertility consultant will explain the next steps if you wish to start treatment with iTrust. You will also receive information on NHS funding if you are eligible.
How will I receive my Fertility results?

It’s important to remember that your results are not the only indicator, there are other factors to consider too, in particular your age and lifestyle, which will be discussed by during your appointment.
At iTrust you will be given honest advice and your chances of success if you choose to start fertility treatment with us.
Optional extras: HyCoSy test
IIf appropriate, we can perform a HyCoSy (Hysterosalpingo-contrast-sonography) test but this is not part of the check-up’s it will cost an additional £550.
HyCoSy is a non-invasive transvaginal ultrasound technique which assesses the patency of your fallopian tubes, which must be clear of blockages in order to conceive. A HyCoSy involves injecting a contrast fluid into the uterine cavity through the cervix, which will indicate on ultrasound if there are any fallopian tube blockages or other changes in the womb such as polyps or fibroids.
Blocked fallopian tubes can be caused by a number of reasons, including infections, previous surgery and scar tissue. Blocked fallopian tubes do not typically show any symptoms and as such most women are unaware of a problem until they have difficulty conceive.
