Trying to conceive can get complicated. Especially when you try for a while and still aren’t pregnant. Believe me I know. I have had quite the struggle with conceiving and the more time goes by the more I think my little Bug was a huge miracle!
I tried to conceive Bug for a total of 2 and a half years. I had to end up using fertility drugs and IUI (Intra-Uterine Insemination). So it was a long and emotional journey. There were often times when I wondered “what is wrong?” “why am I not getting pregnant?”.
Back then I wish I would have had the First Response Fertility Test for women. You take the test the same way you take a pregnancy test, by peeing on a stick 🙂 You take the test on the 3rd day of your menstrual cycle. I will let First Response explain the rest:
“The FIRST RESPONSE® Fertility Test for Women is an accurate test of FSH level to assess ovarian reserve (egg quantity and quality) – one of the leading single indicators of a woman’s ability to get pregnant.
Every woman is born with all of the eggs that she will ever have. Each month one or more eggs will mature in the ovaries in preparation for ovulation. As the eggs mature and are released over time, the number of eggs, which is a measure of a woman’s fertility potential, decreases.
- Follicle Stimulating Hormone, (FSH), is one of many hormones that your body uses to regulate your menstrual cycle and to control the maturation of your eggs. FSH signals the ovaries to mature one or more eggs for ovulation each month/cycle.
- If your ovarian reserve (eggs) is low in quantity or quality, your pituitary will produce higher than normal FSH levels early in the cycle, trying to stimulate your ovaries to produce a mature egg. In other words, when your quantity or quality of eggs (fertility potential) is low, your FSH level may be high.
- Therefore, knowing your FSH level on Day 3 of the menstrual cycle can be helpful in finding out if you are able to get pregnant.
- FSH level assesses ovarian reserve, one of the leading single indicators of a woman’s fertility potential and now it is possible to gauge your fertility potential through a simple at-home test with over 95% accuracy.”-First Response
I have been struggling to get pregnant again with a second child for about 2 and a half years and again find myself wondering “what is going on?”. I actually took the First Response Fertility Test recently and I found it really easy to use, the instructions are great. What I love most about it is that you can take the test before deciding what to do next in your conception plan. It is a fast and easy way to know if it is possible for you to conceive.
If you are trying to conceive I suggest you take the First Response Fertility Test for Women. It is a great first step on your road to conception.
