Genetic Tests That Show a Predisposition for Infertility

The ability to conceive a child is something many couples take for granted. However, infertility is far more common than one might think. While it can be disheartening when couples do not fall pregnant as quickly as they hope to, fertility genetic testing can help prospective parents to identify and manage health issues and increase their chances of conceiving.

In this article, we will answer the question; “Are there genetic tests that can show my predisposition for infertility”? We will also discuss the causes of infertility and why it is a good idea to have your fertility tested.

What Causes Infertility?

Infertility can affect both men and women, and can be due to genetic issues or environmental factors such as pesticides and other chemicals. Infertility in both men and women is often linked to underlying hereditary issues that couples may not be aware of. Therefore, it can be beneficial for both partners to take a fertility genetic test.

Why Should You Test for Fertility?

Genetic issues account for about 50% of all cases of infertility. Each person has a unique DNA code which informs everything from their growth and development to their ability to conceive. The Supreme Fertility test can help you determine your genetic predisposition to sub-optimal fertility and how to address those issues in order to fall pregnant.

Benefits of Taking a Supreme Fertility Genetic Test

The Supreme Fertility test provides you with information to help you optimise your fertility. The test analyses the following area of your health:

  • Stress levels
  • Detoxification
  • Thyroid function
  • Hormone imbalances
  • Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS)
  • Endometriosis
  • Vitamin D and calcium
  • Omega 3 needs
  • Blood clotting
  • Iron homeostasis
  • Oxidative stress
  • Methylation

What Does Fertility Genetic Testing Cost?

A fertility test that one can perform at home will typically cost between R3500 and R4000, depending on the brand. It is best to ensure that the test you opt for is a comprehensive one.

The Supreme Fertility test is a quick, painless, and affordable way to test your fertility from the comfort of your own home. The test can be purchased on the Geneway website. Once you have purchased the test a DNA Collection Kit will be delivered to your door. All you have to do is swab the inside of your cheek and the test will be collected and sent to Geneway’s testing lab on your behalf. After you receive your results, you can get in touch with one of Geneway’s affiliated practitioners to discuss your results and formulate an individual plan to assist you on your fertility journey.
