One Dubai clinic is offering free services in celebration of International Women’s Day.
According to Dubai Health Authority, around 50 per cent of women in the UAE struggle with infertility.
Many often don’t know what barriers they face before they try to conceive, however a few tests could help highlight potential issues.
And for the next month, you can have one for free as part of an International Women’s Day celebration.
Dubai’s Bourn Hall Fertility Centre is offering the complimentary service throughout March at their Jumeirah clinic.
The screening includes AMH, FSH and LH hormone blood tests, which help assess a woman’s reserve of eggs, and therefore can estimate the likelihood of falling pregnant.
“A healthy, fertile 30-year-old woman has about a 20 per cent chance of getting pregnant each month,” said Bourn Hall’s specialist obstetrician/gynecologist, Dr Shazia Magray.
“By the time she reaches the age of 40, her chances are less than 5 per cent per month and this is usually due to the decrease in the number and quality of eggs.”
The clinic is encouraging women under the age of 38 to take advantage of testing, as the results could change their mind about when to start a family.
“As a precaution, it is important that women take stock of their fertility health, so that they can make informed decisions on when to start a family and related treatment can be sought earlier than later,” said Magray.
