If I have more or fewer eggs than the average for my age 🥚

We’re born with all the eggs we’ll ever have and as we age, they decline in quantity and quality. Every woman has a different fertility curve. So, understanding your personal fertility can help you make think about adjusting your timeline and have informed convos with your doctor about your options. Measuring your hormones, particularly your Anti-Mullerian Hormone (AMH) will help you understand egg count, while your age is the best measure of egg quality.

How I might respond to egg freezing and IVF 🥶

The first step in the egg freezing and IVF process is collecting the eggs from your ovaries. Your hormones along with your age can help you understand whether you would be able to expect a suitable amount of eggs to be collected in one cycle. We’ll dig into what you need to know if you’re considering egg freezing.

Whether I might have signs of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome 🍓

PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome) is a reproductive condition impacting 1 in 10 women. It’s a hormonal imbalance involving excess androgens (male hormones), which typically results in irregular ovulation. While more difficult, women are still able to get pregnant with PCOS. Picking up signs of PCOS, talking to your doctor about it early and understanding how to manage it if you have it can help you to take proactive steps to get it under control before starting to try for a family.

If I could hit menopause earlier or later than the average ✨

Your reproductive timeline kicks into gear with your first period and ends with menopause. The average menopause age in Australia is 51, but, on average, we begin transitioning into menopause 4-8 years earlier. Understanding when menopause might be for you can help you make more informed decisions about family planning.

Whether anything may be impacting my ovulation cycles 🐣

Ovulation is the process your body goes through to release an egg from the ovaries. It’s a necessary ingredient when it comes to getting pregnant naturally. We’ll look at your hormone levels and lifestyle factors to understand whether anything could be getting in the way of your ovulation.

How my thyroid might impact my fertility health 📊

Checking in on your thyroid hormones can help to pick up whether there are issues that might get in the way of conceiving when you’re ready. Having too much or too few thyroid hormones can impact your ovulation and your metabolism. If you’re thinking about starting a family soon, thyroid hormone imbalances can also affect the ability to have a healthy pregnancy. So, by picking up on these signals early, you can work with a doctor to create a prescription plan to balance these hormones back out.

Hormones are just one piece of the puzzle

This test can’t tell you your exact chances of falling pregnant. Or whether you are infertile.

There is no sure-fire test that can.

This Fertility Hormone Test is the best first step in understanding your fertility proactively.

Hormone testing can’t tell you everything.

But it can tell you a lot.

Some of the information you can get from this test is vital to making plans for your future, including:
Talking to your doctor or even partner about your future plans
Giving you the confidence to make informed decisions
Deciding how to be proactive about improving your hormonal balance

A proactive approach to your fertility gives you the important information you need to understand how your body changes over time.

It's proactive, not reactive.

We could talk about it all day.

But don't take our word for it.

FAQs

Is this Medicare Rebateable?

Unfortunately, Kin is unable to access any Medicare rebates at this point in time due to telehealth regulations (we’re working on changing this!).

Some private health insurers may cover you for Kin’s video consultations. As each insurer and insurance plan is different, please consult your insurance provider to find out whether you are able to get your rebates.

Will this test tell me my chances of falling pregnant?

If you are wondering whether this test can tell you if you’re infertile, or your chances of falling pregnant, the answer is no. No test can tell you this.

Your hormones are just one important piece of the puzzle that can tell you a lot of other things.

The answers you get from this test will help you make decisions regarding hormonal imbalances that might affect your chances of conceiving, whether or not to freeze your eggs, when to start thinking about a family, and what to discuss with your doctor.

Why should I test my fertility?

With the information you learn about your hormones, you are better positioned to make decisions about when (and if) you want to start a family, whether or not egg freezing might be for you, and take action if your proactive tests show any red flags.

Fertility testing is about arming ourselves with knowledge about our fertility earlier in life. Science can tell us a lot, but it can be confusing.

This fertility test has been designed to help you use science to inform your family planning decisions and do what’s extremely personal and right for you. And, if things interrupt your timeline, give you options.

With a simple hormone blood test, you don’t have to wonder, you can get answers.

When can I expect my results to come back?

You can expect your results to come back within 7-10 business days.

From here, you’ll be asked to schedule an appointment in with a Kin doctor online to have your results interpreted.

When should I take the test?

If your hormone panel contains E2, FSH or LH, it’s a good idea to test on Day 2-5 of your period.

To identify this, count Day 1 of your period as the first day of a full flow that begins before 5pm. If you’re unsure, just email [email protected] and the team will get right back to you with next steps.

Can I go to any collection centre?

It's important that you only present your pathology request form at one of our designated collection centres:

QML Pathology –  Queensland and Northern NSW

Laverty Pathology – New South Wales and Australian Capital Territory

Dorevitch Pathology – Victoria

TML Pathology – Tasmania

Abbott Pathology – South Australia

Western Diagnostics Pathology – Western Australia and Northern Territory

While a non-designated collection centre may accept your form, they will bill you again for the test.

What happens after the test?

Your Kin doctor will explain your results to you in your consult and give you clear next steps, personalised to you.

You will receive a dashboard of your results which you can always refer to and show your partner, GP or specialist.

Can I do the Fertility Hormone Test at any age?

The test is most accurate for women aged 25 to 45. As we want to make sure the Fertility Hormone Test will be most accurate for you and that the results are actionable and reflective of your situation, you unfortunately will not qualify for a Fertility Hormone Test via Kin if you are younger than 25 or older than 45.
