Who is this for?

If you are not yet ready to talk to a doctor, you can start your fertility journey from your couch - all from the comfort of your own home.

What happens after my test is done? 

You can schedule a fertility consultation or evaluation with Dr. Wolff to review your results to learn about where to go from here.  The Pelex fee for ordering your baseline test can be applied towards a fertility consultation or evaluation. 

1. Initial Fertility Evaluation

We can order a series of baseline tests that measure the levels of certain hormones that can help determine causes of infertility and an overall picture of your health.

  • Anti-Mullerian hormone
  • Prolactin
  • Thyroid Stimulating Hormone

** Tests will be customized depending on your health history.


2. Day 3 Ovarian Reserve Labs 

‘Day 3’ labs or blood draws are done on your third day of your menstrual cycle. This is done to look at certain hormones that help determine ovarian reserve, and are an indirect measure of the quantity or quality of eggs remaining in your ovaries.

Where can I get testing done?  

These tests can only be performed at a doctors office or outpatient radiology center with a physician order. Dr. Wolff will review the results with you during a Fertility Consultation.

Who is this for?

This test is for women undergoing a fertility workup or prior to taking ovulation medicine (e.g. Clomid or Letrozole) or planning to undergo intrauterine insemination (IUI).
