Hi, I was wondering whether anyone had had their hormones tested to check for any imbalance, and if so, what are they?

Day 3 bloods : FSH, LH, oestrodial, testosterone, prolactin, thyroid function (TSH, T3,T4)
Day 21 progesterone
AMH for ovarian reserve

Yep same. The NHS won't test AMH (at least they wouldn't a couple of years ago). I would expect a fertility clinic to do an antral follicle count aswell as AMH and FSH to get an overall picture of ovarian reserve. They will probably recommend other scans and tests too.

Good luck.

Good luck. AMH isn't an NHS test but you can get a 'fertility MOT' - which is a very misleading name as it's not a full investigation, just an ovarian reserve evaluation - privately which will look at AMH and antral follicle count

Also very important to ensure the male side of the equation is being looked at - stating the obvious but semen analysis is essential too
