It’s natural to be concerned about your fertility, or ‘biological clock’. But there is an easy way to find out how fertile you are, and if there are any underlying issues, before you start even thinking about trying for a baby. We offer a ‘Fertility MOT’ at Manchester Fertility. It’s a series of simple tests for you and your partner to find out how fertile you are and if indeed there are any issues which may affect your chances of conceiving in the future. That way, you are fully aware and prepared for when you do want to start a family. For details of the treatment and prices, visit our Fees page.
