RMACT, Fairfeild County's leading fertility clinic, is offering free fertility tests for teachers in July at its locations in Danbury, Norwalk, Stamford and Trumbull, CT.

Norwalk, CT (PRWEB) July 09, 2014

For all that teachers give to our community and our schools, Reproductive Medicine Associates of Connecticut (RMACT) is proud to offer free fertility testing for female teachers. Connecticut and New York teachers can visit any of RMACTs four locations for an anti-mullerian hormone (AMH) blood test. AMH is an excellent measure of a womans ovarian reserve, the remaining strength of a womans eggs, which naturally declines with age. Whether they are interested in starting a family now or planning for the future, an AMH test provides women with information about their reproductive and fertility health through a simple blood test.

RMACTs medical staff will conduct blood draws and AMH tests from 9:00 a.m. 11:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. 3:00 p.m., Monday through Friday at the fertility practices locations in Danbury, Norwalk, Stamford and Trumbull on a walk-in basis during these time periods.

Teachers understand the power of knowledge, and we want to give them this important information about their fertility and their reproductive health, says Dr. Joshua Hurwitz, a board certified reproductive endocrinologist and partner with RMACT. This knowledge is essential for a woman to make important decisions about her fertility options whether she is interested in starting a family today or in several years.

Teachers who come to RMACT will have their blood drawn and will receive a phone call from an RMACT nurse with results within 10 business days. The AMH blood test can be drawn at any time of a womans menstrual cycle, even if she is on Birth Control Pills so there is no special scheduling required.

AMH levels are widely recognized as a reliable indicator of a womans reproductive potential; however, it does not give the full picture. For a more thorough understanding of their fertility, patients should schedule an individual consultation at RMACT that includes a complete diagnostic work-up. For women, this diagnostic testing includes AMH, follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) and hysterosalpingogram (HSG). For men, who contribute to up to 40 percent of infertility issues, diagnostic testing includes semen analysis. Both partners will also discuss their family and medical histories during their initial consultations.
