Progesterone levels in the blood come from the corpus luteum and are helpful after ovulation and to find out if you ovulated or not. Low progesterone levels are not normal.
Spermanalysis is commonly used to examine male semen for possible
abnormalities. Many years ago, women were considered to be the cause of
infertility, but today, the medical community accepts the fact that both
men and women can suffer from infertility.
Antimullerian hormone (AMH) is a hormone produced by ovarian follicles.
The amount of AMH directly reflects level of fertility in women. If AMH
levels are too low, women may have trouble conceiving due to low oocyte
The Semen analysis or spermcount in an important part of an infertility evaluation. In fact, many doctors suggest to make the semenanalysis the very first infertility test.
The essential infertility work-up and testing includes an assessment of his sperms, whether and when ovulation takes places, and if the fallopian tubes are open.
Finding out about his fertility is the second most important information to know when trying to get pregnant (find the most important information HERE).
You will find here hCG levels and all the hCG information and facts about the pregnancy hormone which increases by at least 60% every 2 days until it reaches 1,200 mIU/ml.
FSH, or follicle-stimulating hormone, is a hormone which is being produced and excreted in a small gland inside the brain, the pituitary gland.
The urine FSH Tests detect elevated high FSH (follicle stimulating hormone) levels, and elevated FSH levels are associated with decreased fertility.
An ovulation prediction kit or OPK is created to measure the amount of luteinizing hormone in the urine.
It is important to start using the ovulation prediction kit at the right time during the menstrual cycle.

Ovulation prediction kits OPK are sensitive to the luteinizing hormone (LH). While most medications will have no effect on the test results, there are a certain sector of medications that can have a very real effect.
Using an ovulation prediction kit is very similar to using an at home pregnancy test. The kits are designed with sticks that are used to collect urine directly from the urine stream. If the woman is not comfortable urinating on the stick, a sterile container can be used to collect the urine and the stick dipped into the urine for five to twenty seconds.
A woman has her peak number of eggs (oocytes) before she is born. All
during a woman's life, the eggs are decreasing and tens of thousands of
eggs are lost every year of a woman's life.
Ovulation does not necessarily happen after the OPK turns negative. It
could happen, but that's not the rule. What matter solely is when it OPK
FIRST turns positive not when it eventually becomes negative.
Even with a negative OPK it's still possible to ovulate, especially if you have ovulation symptoms.
