WHAT OUR PATIENTS SAY

Women Tests

Amenorrhea / PCOS Add-on Blood Test

Tests included:
Test: Blood



Patient instructions:
The patient should fast for 12 hours preceding collection of specimen.

These tests should not be done when you are taking the hormonal contraceptives as the results will not be valid.



Turnaround time:
3 days



What does it look at:

This can be requested if you have missed your period on more than 2 consecutive occasions and you have done a urine pregnancy test to ensure that you are not pregnant. It can also be requested if you are having irregular periods or if you are experiencing increased acne, facial hair, infertility +/- obesity or having infertility problems (that is, trouble conceiving). This can also be requested to check if you have reached your menopause.
FSH levels– High levels suggest a primary ovarian failure (ovaries themselves are malfunctioning. High FSH levels are also seen when a woman enters the menopause.

Oestradiol, testosterone, progesterone prolactin

Fasting glucose and insulin – insulin resistance can cause anovulation

TSH and free T4 – thyroid disorders can affect periods,

Ovarian Reserve Add-On Blood Tests

Tests included:
Type of Test:

Blood Test

Patient instructions: To be performed on day 3 of the cycle. This test cannot be performed if you are taking hormonal contraceptives as the results will not be valid.



Turnaround time:
7 days



What does it look at:
This may be requested to assess the capacity of your ovaries to provide eggs that are capable of fertilisation, resulting in a healthy and successful pregnancy. The higher your maternal age, the less the number of eggs available for fertilisation.

FSH and oestradiol – this allows you to assess if there is any ovarian failure.
Antimullerian hormone - low levels suggest that you may respond less well to ovarian stimulation by your IVF specialist and an alternative protocol may be required. High levels suggest that you may have an excessive response to ovarian stimulation and again, an alternative protocol may be needed.
Day 3 inhibin B test– This protein produced by your ovaries blocks FSH (which is needed to help your ovarian follicles develop). Inhibin B decreases with age and indicates your egg quality and quantity. Low levels are associated with reduced ovulation, reduced success with IVF, lower pregnancy rates and an increased risk of miscarriage.

Follicular Tracking Add-On Blood Tests

Tests included:
Test: blood test

Patient instructions:
This test must be done 7 days before your next period is due (ie day 21 of a 28-day cycle). This test must not be done whilst you are taking the oral contraceptive pill otherwise the results will not be valid.



Turnaround time:
3 days



What does it look at:
This may be requested to check if you have ovulated (that is, released an egg from your ovary). Progesterone levels start to rise when an egg is released from the ovary and continues to rise for several days and then either continues to rise with early pregnancy or rapidly falls to start menstruation.
If levels do not rise (usually checked at Day 21 or Day 23 of your cycle– depending on your cycle length), you may not be ovulating properly. If concentrations do not rise normally during early pregnancy, the pregnancy may be an ectopic or a failing pregnancy.

PELVIC STD BASIC ADD-On Tests

Blood

Urine



Patient Instructions:

Blood test:
HIV (early detection screen)

Syphilis.

Urine test:

Chlamydia

Gonorrhoea

Chlamydia:

Chlamydia is the most common curable STD. It can cause pain during sex or discharge however many people don’t have any symptoms.

Gonorrhoea

Ovarian screening

Tests included:
Type of Test: Blood Test



Patient instructions:
None

Turnaround time:
3 days



What does it look at:

HE4 is found in high levels in Ovarian Cancer. Serum levels are less affected by menstruation, ovulation and other benign ovarian conditions such as endometriosis (unlike CA 125).
In pre-menopausal women, HE4 is more sensitive/specific for even an early-stage ovarian cancer.
In post-menopausal women the non-specific CA 125 is more suitable for assessing Ovarian Malignancy (as benign ovarian conditions occur less frequently).
The Risk of Ovarian Malignancy Algorithm (ROMA) is a calculation combining the CA 125 and HE4 and classifies women as being at low or high risk of having an Ovarian cancer.

Mycoplasma

Infection with mycoplasma genitalium has surpassed gonorrhoea in prevalence but most cases don’t cause symptoms. It can be associated with serious longterm consequences such as infertility from pelvic inflammatory disease.

Ureaplasma

Urea urealyticum is part of the normal genital flora of both men and women. It is found in about 70% of sexually active humans, usually without symptoms. It has been associated with non-specific urethritis, infertility and associated discharge.

Trichomoniasis

Trichomonas vaginalis is the most common STD in sexually active young women Some women may mistake this infection for a yeast infection or bacterial vaginosis. Men can get trichomoniasis too but they don’t tend to get symptoms.

Gardnerealla vaginalis

Gardnerella vaginalis is a bacterium. It is one of a number of bacteria and other anaerobic organisms known to cause BV. It is characterised by a fishy-smelling and white vaginal discharge and in women of childbearing age it will most commonly cause vaginal infection.

Herpes/Herpes simplex virus I/II

Herpes is another viral STD. HSV1 is most often associated with cold sores and HSV2 is most often associated with genital sores. However it is possible to transmit herpes from the mouth to the genitals and vice versa. Herpes symptoms can be treated with anti-viral drugs but the virus cannot be cured. People with the herpes virus need to know that they can transmit the virus even when they do not have any sores or other symptoms.

What does it look at:

This can be requested if there are infertility issues for you and your partner.
LH and FSH levels– LH controls the production of testosterone from your testes and FSH controls the production of your sperm. High LH and FSH levels are due to a primary testicular failure (failure of the testicles themselves). This may be caused by developmental abnormalities of the testes at birth or from damage later on (such as a mumps infection, alcoholism, anabolic steroid use, trauma, autoimmune disorders or a testicular tumour). Low levels of FSH suggest a brain pituitary or hypothalamic disorder.

Testosterone– a low testosterone level may be due to a brain hypothalamic or pituitary disease (there will be a reduced LH and FSH) or may be due to a primary testicular failure (as above). Increased testosterone levels may indicate a testicular tumour.

Prolactin– Raised levels associated with a low testosterone level suggest a brain pituitary cause (such as a prolactinoma) for your infertility.

Fasting glucose – poorly controlled diabetes can cause infertility

TSH ft4 – thyroid levels can contribute to fertility issues

Sperm Sample - This may be done to check if you may be infertile If abnormal, you should repeat the test 1 month later. The fertility semen test checks for semen volume, sperm concentration, motility, progression and morphology. It also tests for fructose in the semen and anti-sperm antibodies.

General Health Screening

Abdominal Screening

Tests included:
Blood

Stool

Patient instructions
None



Turnaround time:
7 days



What does it look at:

Comprehensive blood test including amylase: This includes haematology, biochemistry (Us and Es ,lfts, bone profile) uric acid, Cholesterol + glucose inflammatory markers, iron and amylase. Amylase is usually used to diagnose acute pancreatitis through very high levels of amylase may also indicate other conditions such as cancer of the pancreas, gallbladder disease, perforation of a peptic ulcer etc. If you have abnormal liver tests, it may be recommended that you go on to have the liver profile.


– Faecal occult blood (FOB) – this is a stool test which identifies blood in the stools even if it’s not visible to the naked eye. A positive result can potentially indicate bowel cancer, however, there are other causes such as ulcers, haemorrhoids, diverticular disease etc. Anyone with a positive FOB would require further investigations.


- Faecal calprotectin- raised levels suggests inflammation in the gut and faecal Calprotectin can be raised in infective colitis and in bowel cancer.

H pylori antigen – raised levels to suggest H pylori infection

Thyroid add-on blood Tests

Tests included:
Type of Test: Blood Test



Patient instructions:
None



Turnaround time:
3 days



What does it look at:
TSH, free T4, free t3 and thyroid autoantibodies. This is used to diagnose overactive (hyperthyroidism) and underactive (hypothyroidism) thyroid disease.
If you had hypothyroidism (elevated TSH, decreased T4), you may present with weight gain, dry skin, constipation, cold intolerance, hair loss, fatigue and menstrual irregularity (in women).
If you had hyperthyroidism (decreased TSH, elevated T4), you may present with a fast heart rate, anxiety, weight loss, hand tremor, weakness and diarrhoea.
Occasionally false positive’s (bloods suggest you have a thyroid disease falsely) occur and may be related to concominant medication use, acute illness (even a common cold) or pregnancy. Hence it is important to recheck you thyroid profile at least after 1 month, to ensure that you truly do have a thyroid disease.
