The sperm testing kit includes a telehealth appointment with a fertility specialist following your at home semen analysis. The telehealth appointment includes Fertility 101, an interactive discussion which provides the post sex-ed material you need to understand reproductive anatomy and the steps you can take to optimize your sperm quality. The fertility specialist will also discuss lifestyle and behavioral activities that can impact your fertility along with recommendations to improve your chances of conception.
The Ovarian Reserve Test allows you to collect your sample at home, submit your sample to IHD where they will test your sample at its state-of-the-industry CLIA-certified laboratory to measure your AMH level and provide you with your test results. This hormone, AMH, is best used to estimate the number of eggs that may grow during an ovarian stimulation cycle, when injectable medications are taken to stimulate the growth of multiple eggs.
Order your Ovarian Reserve Test from our partner IHD or your Sperm Testing Kit to be shipped directly to your house.
Follow the instructions provided by Posterity Health in the sperm kit or IHD in the Ovarian Reserve Test kit to collect your sample.
Drop off your Sperm collection kit or Ovarian Reserve Test kit in the mail and wait for your results from IHD or Posterity.
We have partnered with Innovative Health Diagnostics and Posterity Health, who both share a passion for increasing accessibility to fertility care.
With the at-home tests provided by our partners, you and your partner can get a better understanding of your current reproductive health. It’s important to understand that at this time we can’t use any at home testing results in the clinic and the results of any at-home tests are for your information only. If you come in for treatment, we will have to redo all tests.
In partnership with IHD, we’ve sponsored the creation of an Ovarian Reserve Test which measures Anti-Mullerian Hormone, or AMH. AMH tests shows you how many potential eggs could be retrieved during an ovarian stimulation cycle. It’s very important to recognize that this test does not measure your natural fertility or tell us anything about your egg quality, which is much more important for conception and fertilization in an IVF cycle. This Ovarian Reserve Test is to empower and educate you, it is not a fertility test.

Ovarian Reserve Test:
Instructions for how to use the Ovarian Reserve Test and how submit your sample to IHD for testing services are provided by IHD in the Ovarian Reserve Test home sample collection kit. After you collect the test specimen all you have to do is drop it off at your nearest UPS with the return container and label provided by IHD. The Ovarian Reserve Test measures AMH, or Anti-Mullerian Hormone. AMH is a hormone produced by granulosa cells, or cells in the ovary that nurture and support developing eggs. Your AMH level is one in a series of tests that are used to estimate the number of eggs that may grow during an ovarian stimulation cycle (when hormones are injected to stimulate egg production), which is done as a part of an egg freezing, embryo freezing, or in-vitro fertilization treatment.
This helps physicians estimate how many eggs may be retrieved at the time of an egg retrieval. Although many factors determine the success of a treatment, the number of eggs can impact the probability of a successful treatment outcome. Your AMH does not tell us anything about your natural fertility or egg quality. Age is the best predictor of egg quality. AMH does not change during your menstrual cycle, so the blood sample can be taken at any time of the month – even while you are using oral contraceptives.
