Infertility is a growing concern with a rising number of couples having difficulty becoming pregnant. Currently, one in six Australian couples experience trouble conceiving. Generally, it is highly recommended that you consult a healthcare specialist who can assess your overall reproductive health and conduct simple diagnostic assessments to identify any underlying causes of pregnancy delay.

NutriPATH offers a simple, cost-effective test profile to identify treatable hormonal imbalances that affect fertility. Early detection can help your patients address these issues and identify the need for more specialised care. This Fertility Profile meets the requirement for initial screening for fertility assessment by reproductive endocrinologists.

Who should be tested: The NutriPATH Fertility profile is focused on women who have irregular cycles or fertility issues, who have been trying to get pregnant without success, or who would like to be proactive in their preconception planning by getting a baseline screening.

Women are urged to seek testing if they:

  • Are under the age of 35 and have tried for 1 year to become pregnant
  • Are over the age of 35 and have tried for 6 months to become pregnant
  • Have had more than 1 miscarriage
  • Have symptoms of infertility
