So, how does it work? The process is incredibly straightforward. Simply go onto the website and take a short, simple test to see if you’re a candidate for the Australian-first Telehealth fertility test, which provides data on egg counts and hormone levels that relate to the chances of conceiving. Depending on your current contraception, the website will also inform you what hormones they want to check.
The fertility test will set you back $250, a price that covers everything from the referral, blood test and consult. Once the payment is processed, you’ll be given a referral for a blood test at a clinic near you. Once the blood test has been processed, you’ll book in for a 30-minute Telehealth consult with a specialist who will explain your results and what it means for your chance of conceiving. Women will also receive their hormone levels compared to the averages, detailed information on egg reserves compared to the average for their age, and doctor-reviewed results in an interface that is easy to understand and interpret.
The information garnered is invaluable. Thanks to insights into hormones and your own health questionnaire, you’ll learn more about your ovarian egg count, your reproductive timeline, whether you might be able to collect more or less than the average eggs in a single freezing or IVF cycle, regularity of ovulation cycles, whether you have signs of PCOS, as well as detailed information about your thyroid health which could impact your fertility or pregnancy.
The testing is the exact same accredited test one would receive at a Fertility Specialist and as experts suggest, it’s recommended to do testing if you’re aged between 25 and 45. Given the fact the Telehealth call can be done from the comfort of your own home, Kin Fertility is making it easier than ever to check in on your fertility, allowing us all to be more empowered to make our own decisions when it comes to conception and our bodies.
