Dubai Clinic offering Free Fertility Tests for Women throughout March

To celebrate International Women’s Day, Bourn Hall Fertility Centre in Dubai help women assess their reproductive health and take appropriate measures

  • A healthy fertile woman has only 20% chance of getting pregnant per month, at 40 years it’s less than 5% 
  • Low ovarian reserve means reduced fertility and an increased risk of miscarriage

March 7, 2017; Dubai, UAE:  On the occasion of International Women’s Day, Bourn Hall Fertility Centre, Dubai, is offering all women in the UAE a chance to get a free fertility health check throughout March at their clinic in Jumeirah. The fertility check would include a free AMH, FSH and LH hormone blood tests to assess a female’s ovarian reserve and help determine her fertility potential.

The free screening will be particularly beneficial to women under the age of 38 years who are considering delaying pregnancy, and those with a family history of ovarian failure, autoimmune disease, chemotherapy or previous surgery to the ovaries. However, it will be equally helpful to all women -- married or unmarried, those planning to have a family or not – to give them an idea of their child-bearing abilities. Depending on the results, one can choose to have egg-freezing as an option, or can start a family earlier than planned.

“The egg quantity and quality declines with age – beginning in the early 30s and faster in the late 30s and early 40s. A healthy, fertile 30-year-old woman has about a 20% chance of getting pregnant each month. By the time she reaches the age of 40, her chances are less than 5% per month and this is usually due to the decrease in the number and quality of eggs. As a woman ages, so do her eggs and the internal structures of the egg become more debilitated and is less likely to thrive.Therefore, women with low ovarian reserve have diminished fertility and an increased risk of miscarriage,” said Dr Shazia Magray, Specialist OBGYN at Bourn Hall Fertility Centre.

As per a news report released last year, around 50 percent of the women in UAE face infertility issues, which is on the rise.

Dr. Shazia added: “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. With increasing age, achieving a viable and healthy pregnancy does become a big challenge and can lead to chromosomal abnormalities leading to birth of children with genetic diseases. It appears that the best eggs are ovulated first and the low quality, genetically imbalanced ones are released in later years so there is always merit in starting family early on”.

Bourn Hall Fertility Centre is an active campaigner, imparting education on fertility issues in both men and women. Besides organizing free screening, the Centre conducts regular seminars and talks, encouraging people to assess their fertility health and take timely measures to avoid complications later.
