What’s My Fertility™ at CHR

An Innovative fertility risk screening for young women

Dr. Norbert Gleicher introduces What’s My Fertility, a risk screening program for young women to avoid future infertility due to premature ovarian aging (POA).

What’s My Fertility™ POA risk screening at CHR

Young women (between 18 and 35) can now undergo POA screening at CHR many years before the condition becomes a clinical infertility problem later in life. While What's My Fertility is currently available online to women in the United States, CHR offers this screening to women all over the world. Armed with knowledge, at-risk women can better plan their life, and, likely, avoid struggles with infertility in their thirties and forties. Those not found at elevated risk can feel more confident in postponing pregnancies and on concentrating on other priorities.

All it takes is completing a very short questionnaire and have a blood draw. Once your answers are assessed and the results from your blood draw are available, you will receive a written report, which will advise you whether you (i) are not likely at increased risk; (ii) are at increased risk; or (iii) already demonstrate evidence of POA.

If you demonstrate no likely increased risk, you are discharged from further follow up; if you are defined “at increased risk,” you will receive a recommendation to enter an annual follow up program, involving a single blood test; if you already are diagnosed with POA, you will be advised to immediately see a fertility specialist. At-risk women will have options: monitoring their ovarian reserve, getting pregnant sooner than planned, or freezing eggs to preserve their current fertility.
