Fertility Testing

Proov

Proov progesterone test strips empower women to know more about their cycles. Current at home tests measure first half cycle hormones that are predictive of ovulation. Proov tests enable a more complete picture by measuring progesterone, a hormone critical to conception and pregnancy and the ONLY hormone that confirms ovulation. Don’t just predict ovulation. Proov it! 

ReceptivaDx

ReceptivaDx is a first of its kind test for the detection of inflammation of the uterine lining most commonly associated with endometriosis, a leading cause of infertility and implantation failure.ReceptivaDx measures BCL6, an inflammatory marker not normally present during the windowof implantation. Women who test positive and are appropriately treated can expect a 60% chanceof achieving pregnancy in their next transfer attempt versus an 11% chance of achievingpregnancy with no treatment. A negative result offers reassurance that the uterine lining is notlikely a factor in the patient’s infertility. Visit our website to learn more about this test.
