Fertility, Future-Proofed

Many women struggle to balance their professional ambitions with their personal plans. Some focus on professional goals during their twenties, putting off any thoughts of starting a family until later. But what happens if things don't go according to plan?

Whether you are planning ahead or just starting to think about your future, a few simple tests analyzed by our expert physicians can identify your risk of losing fertility prematurely — a condition called premature ovarian aging (POA). Knowing how your fertility will change in the coming years, you can take proactive steps to take control of your fertility now.

How it Works

1. Registration

Start by creating an account and choosing the plan that's right for you.

2. Lab Analysis

First, we'll ask you a few simple questions about your medical history. Then, our doctors will analyze your answers, along with the results of three blood tests.

3. Fertility Recommendation

Our doctors will advise you on whether you are at risk for developing premature ovarian aging, one of the single largest silent causes of infertility.

4. Take Action

Based on the fertility prediction, our doctors will guide you through proactive steps that will allow you to take control of your fertility.

What You'll Learn

Your What's My Fertility screening will show you whether you are at risk for one of the largest silent causes of infertility, premature ovarian aging, or POA.

Based on your fertility prediction, our doctors will advise you on the best time to start your family and suggest proactive steps you can take to improve your chances of having your own, biological children in the future.

  • What is POA? 
  • Will I Be Fertile? 

Women are born with all the eggs for her lifetime.

Most of these eggs sit in the ovaries in an immature state, as if in a freezer. From birth on, hundreds to thousands of these eggs start maturing and are eventually lost each month. As these eggs are used up, fertility declines.

Fertility declines with age for all women, but not at the same speed.

For instance, the ovaries of a 33-year-old woman with POA may behave like those of a 44-year old woman, significantly lowering her chances of getting pregnant with her own eggs. This happens to about 10% of all women, and unfortunately many of them don't realize this until their fertility is significantly impacted, because POA usually has no symptoms.

Many women find out too late.

Female fertility peaks in the early 20s and drops considerably after about age 35, although an average woman can conceive naturally in her early to mid-40s. However, if you develop POA, you may start having difficulty getting pregnant already in your 30s. For women with unrecognized POA, putting off starting their family could result in the unfortunate surprise of infertility.

What’s My Fertility shows you where your fertility is now, and whether it will remain normal in the future. With this knowledge about yourself, plus just a little bit of planning ahead, you can avoid future infertility due to hidden POA.

Plan Ahead

Plan your reproductive life with personalized advice.

If your results come back reassuring, which will be the most common outcome, you can pretty safely move forward with your current life plans, without fear of POA. Though other causes of infertility cannot be ruled out, you will have excluded one of the major, silent causes of infertility.

If your What's My Fertility screening picks up a POA risk, we will advise you to start a monitoring process to see if your initial result raised a false alarm. After that, even if we determine that you are actually at risk for developing POA, you will still likely have ample time to build your family by adjusting your family planning timeline or taking proactive steps now.

Periodic Monitoring

Monitor your fertility with periodic blood tests so you know when it starts declining further.

Egg/embryo freezing

Freeze your eggs or embryos now so you can get pregnant with them later, when you are ready to start a family.

Reproductive plan changes

Having a baby sooner is one of the surest ways to avoid infertility struggles due to POA.

About Us

Three physicians at the Center for Human Reproduction (CHR) in New York City, one of the world's leading clinical fertility and research centers, developed What's My Fertility.

Seeing ever-increasing numbers of women from all over the world come to them with POA — often at advanced stages where pregnancy with one's own eggs becomes very difficult or impossible — they decided that something needed to be done.

With the enthusiastic help of prominent colleagues in the field, particularly those participating in our Advisory Board, they formed What's My Fertility with the aim of helping women understand their fertility earlier in life so that they can take control of their fertility now and avoid the need for infertility treatment in the future.
