Infertility Panel Test
Infertility in females can be associated with amenorrhea / oligomenorrhea or with apparently normal menstruation. The latter can occur due to luteal phase deficiency which may involve abnormal follicular development, ovulation or luteal function. A variety of clinical causes identified include use of certain medications, systemic disease states and endocrine abnormalities. A couple is considered infertile if they fail to conceive after six months of unprotected intercourse.
In females, preferred sampling time is Day 2 / Day 3 of the menstrual cycle. Specify day of menstrual cycle
- Infertility affects nearly 15% of couples wishing to conceive and is generally attributed equally to males and females
- In about 10% of infertility cases, there is a genetic etiology
- In patients with a combination of symptoms, it is very difficult to narrow down hypotheses for specific underlying genetic causes. Performing numerous physical tests is costly and time-consuming. More importantly, a delay in diagnosis and treatment has a dramatic negative impact on the patient’s quality of life.
Genetics of Infertility
In females, genetic abnormalities may cause infertility by affecting their reproductive cycle and/or hormonal balance. The most common genetic causes of female infertility are chromosomal abnormalities and mutations in the FMR1 gene.
