While many women think that getting pregnant will be no trouble, millions of women in America struggle with infertility. According to a new survey for First Response(R), 70 percent of women who may want to have children think they can get pregnant whenever they want. But according to RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association, infertility affects 7.3 million Americans.

Now women trying to conceive can buy First Response(R) Fertility Test to quickly and easily identify their potential for becoming pregnant. The test allows women to measure follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) levels to evaluate ovarian reserve – egg quantity and quality.

“Three questions I often get asked by my patients are: am I able to conceive, am I ovulating and am I pregnant? ” said Dr. Lisa Masterson, M.D., a Santa Monica-based OB/GYN affiliated with Cedars-Sinai, St. John’s and UCLA/Santa Monica hospitals, and a co-host on The Doctors. “The First Response(R) Fertility Test empowers women to ask the right questions, right from the start, when they’re trying to get pregnant so they can take charge of their fertility future.”

How the First Response(R) Fertility Test Works

The First Response(R) Fertility Test measures FSH levels in a woman’s urine on the third day of her menstrual cycle. Results appear on the urine stick within 30 minutes with 95 percent accuracy. If FSH levels are found to be above normal, this may indicate that her ovarian reserve is low and may be interfering with her ability to become pregnant.

A woman should speak to her doctor if:

  • Her FSH levels are above normal.
  • Her FSH levels are normal, but she’s 35 years or older and has been trying to get pregnant for at least six months, she’s younger than 35 and has been trying to get pregnant for at least 12 months, or she’s any age and does not have menstrual periods or has irregular periods.

The First Response(R) Fertility Test for Women is available at major food, drug and mass merchandise outlets. A package with two test sticks has a suggested retail price of $24.99. For more information, visit www.FirstResponse.com.
