Women should be informed about their reproductive capacity which depends on their age.
It’s hard for a woman to know that it is too late to get pregnant even if she is not an advanced reproductive age patient.
The experience gets worse especially after many fail attempts.
The chances of conceiving are decreased after the age of 40. However, it might be also difficult for younger women suffering from premature ovarian aging (low ovarian reverse without absence of periods).
Ovaries are some of the major organs of reproductive system which mainly determine the reproductive potential of a woman.
How to know my reproductive capacity in order to plan a pregnancy before it’s too late for me?
- Hormonological tests (FSH, LH, estradiol)
- Measurement anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH)
- Ultrasound measurement of the ovarian volume and the ovarian follicles
- Checking the frequency of your menstrual cycle

Our goal is to solve the root causes of infertility in order to have a greater chance of achieving a natural conception. Only in case fertilisation does not take place naturally we advise on going to IVF, so as to avoid IVF as a “one-way street” without reason.
