Worries about fertility are common and it is important to remember that 80% of couples, where the woman is under 40, will conceive naturally within one year of having regular unprotected sex. It is advisable to to see a GP if you have been trying for over a year, or sooner if the woman is over 35 as fertility declines with age.
We appreciate that this can be a sensitive issue and a stressful time for both partners. Our doctors can provide support and guide you through the initial tests and arrange a referral to a fertility expert if needed.
It is best if both of you can attend together as fertility issues can affect both men and women. Your doctor will be able to carry out an examination to look for any abnormalities which may be precluding you from conceiving. They may also ask about sex, lifestyle, previous medical history and any medications you are currently taking.
For women requiring a fertility test our doctors can advise on and arrange blood tests and an ultrasound scan. Semen analysis can be carried out for men. Both of you may be advised to also take a chlamydia test as this can affect fertility in men and women.
Do not worry about determining for yourself which, if any, test you need. This is something that your doctor will be able to determine and explain during your consultation. All our fertility tests are available same day with some of the fastest results in London. One of our doctors will take the time to explain to you what your test results mean and put in place any appropriate next steps based on those results.
Please note: a GP consultation fee is payable online at the time of booking. Any tests which you require will be chargeable on top during your consultation with the doctor.

This is only a small sample of the many blood tests which DocTap provide. Our expert doctors can advise you during your consultation on the most appropriate tests for your condition. View all blood tests.
* Please note that the lab results are estimates and can vary. Tests taken after 1pm will be classified as the following day for timing purposes. You will receive a written analysis of your results within 1 working day of them being available from the laboratory. It is often possible for the doctor who reviews your results to be the same doctor who requested them. This is considered medical best practice but will add an additional 1 working day to the timings. If you have multiple tests then we shall wait to report on them together unless the first results highlight any reason for concern. Sometimes the preliminary results will determine that additional tests need to be carried out on your sample. If this is the case then your results will take longer. There is no additional charge for this service.
DocTap seek to provide the most convenient, fastest, effective and best value private blood testing service in London. With 18 blood test centres across London and same day appointments available 7 days a week, it has never been easier to book a fertility test. We are proud to partner with The Doctors Laboratory (TDL) which has a worldwide reputation for excellence.
Unlike many blood test clinics, you will see a UK accredited GP who will be able to offer their expert option on what test is most appropriate for you. Your results will also be accompanied by a written analysis of what they mean and what your doctor advises you to do next. Should additional treatment be required, or if you simply wish to discuss the results in more detail, then you can book a 15 minute follow up consultation for only £25. This can either be at any DocTap clinic or over the phone. When booking your follow up consultation you can request to see you original doctor if you wish (subject to their availability).
Should you require a full consulation before deciding to have a fertility test then there may be insufficient time to also take a blood sample in the appointment. In that case you can choose to either go to our walk in laboratory by Oxford Street (£15 phlebotomy fee applies) or to make a second appointment for the doctor to take the bloods.
A healthy, regular menstrual cycle that releases an egg every month or so relies on the correct balance of signals from the glands in the brain acting on the ovaries to release the hormones to mature and release an egg. Blood tests can measure the signals (FSH, LH, prolactin) and hormones (oestrogen, progesterone) at various points in the menstrual cycle to establish if everything is present in the correct amounts to ensure the best possible chance of ovulation. You would require a blood test early in your cycle (FIP) and a further blood test to check progesterone (PROG) on around day 21 of your cycle can indicate if you are ovulation.
These hormone tests can help to diagnose menopause/ovarian insufficiency or polycystic ovarian syndrome.
There is another blood test called AMH (AMH) which stands for anti-mullerian hormone. This is a chemical produced by the cells surrounding the eggs in the ovaries, so the idea is that the greater the number of eggs left, the higher this figure. Although, there is no guarantee about the quality of the eggs left. There is some controversy surrounding what this represents in terms of fertility, but in conjunction with other tests it is useful to measure. Aside from blood tests, fertility specialists would recommend ultrasound scanning and possibly a dye test to check for blocked fallopian tubes. Your DocTap GP can advise you on the appropriate specialist to see and can arrange this referral.
The sperm count test (also known as semen analysis) is the main male fertility test and it is an important part of the investigations for couples with fertility problems as a low sperm count may impair fertility. The sperm count test can show abnormalities in the total number of sperm, the percentage that are normal and the number that are moving normally. All these factor will affect fertility.
If you have an abnormal result then your doctor may advise that you are referred to an andrologist who is a specialist in this area and can help you to optimise your fertility.See a GP for a Fertility Test now
Quick, efficient, clean and very helpful.Sunday, July 5, 2020
Email communication was spot on. The appointment started a few minutes early. Dr Moiz explained all options for my test clearly. The consultation and blood test were done within 10 minutes but never felt rushed. Amazingly I got the results by 19:00, from a 13:00 appointment... on a Saturday.Sunday, July 5, 2020
Really excellent - booked only an hour ahead of visit; easy to book - great doctor...Sunday, July 5, 2020
Hello, Personally, I was satisfied with dr. Ndlovu service and advises. Also, I would like to be able to register at her GP office as her permanent patient. Please, advise regarding this matter if possible. Furthermore, my suggestion is that it would be more useful if DocTap can offer a medical insurance that provides monthly medical subscriptions with clear benefits for the patients such as reduced costs for the analysis or free annual basic tests (blood, urine, general health check-up). Thank you! Best regards, Elena VavilovSaturday, July 4, 2020
Very good professional and kindSaturday, July 4, 2020

Easy and convenient location, appointment was within 20 minutes of the originally scheduled time, the doctor was personable and efficient, and also did the most painless blood draw ever.Sunday, June 28, 2020
I really appreciated my appointment with Dr Munim Moiz. He was polite, considerate, took time to explain and answer questions, and he followed up promptly as promised. I already recommended to my wife that she also consider Dr Moiz for future GP needs. Thank you.Saturday, June 27, 2020
I liked that the doctor took the time to actual visit me, take my pressure etc. Also, he gave me both options about going through NHS or private specialist, so that I had the impression the goal was to provide a full service for every pocket. The clinic was very clean, with disinfectant at the entrance, doctor with mask and gloves and the doctor also changed the gloves during the visit, which gave me the idea that hygiene rules are properly followed. No waiting time e not other people waiting on the same space, which is reassuring in this period. Taking the appointment was easy, with an affordable price, and I was able to do everything in one visit. I would suggest this service and I will probably use it again.Friday, June 26, 2020
Brilliant service, would definitely use againThursday, June 25, 2020

Dr James Stevens was excellent personable and friendly. He explained antI body test in clear detail. Would recommend and will be back.Friday, June 19, 2020
This was my first time using a private healthcare provider and so was unsure what to expect. I was seen by Dr L Kumar. I was impressed by her professionalism and impeccable bedside manner. She made me feel totally at ease, and explained everything to me in language I could understand. She was efficient at taking my blood, and demonstrated kindness and compassion in helping me understand the implications of my test results. She has empowered me to make informed decisions going forward with regards to my health. I highly recommend DocTap, and Dr Kumar in particular!Thursday, June 18, 2020
Great staff. The Doctor was lovely and kind. And wrote a great sick note. Thanks again!Saturday, June 13, 2020
Clear and helpful adviceFriday, June 12, 2020
Great assistance, great help and support. My first language isn't English and discuss about medical issues is not the easiest thing in the world. But the Doctor was very patient and supportive. I met an excellent doctor and she showed me the best way to proceed. I highly recommended DocTap.Friday, June 12, 2020
Fast and efficient system for being seen and advised when it suits best. Excellent servic3Thursday, June 11, 2020
Really good will follow up with GP againSunday, June 7, 2020
GP is excellent (seen 3 times now & always v good). The booking is slightly clunky now due to covid changes, e.g. I booked for Victoria, but someone phoned & I had to go to Bond St instead. This was OK but meant an additonal 40mins on my journey. But otherwise all good!Wednesday, June 3, 2020
Nice Doctor with a professional attitude.Tuesday, June 2, 2020
Wonderful patient care, very lovely doctor !Thursday, May 21, 2020
Am glad that I chose the setting as after telephone conversation I never felt reluctant to make an appointment with Dr Mois which I found professional, intelligent, knowledgeable, friendly, human. I will always recommend and I believe they are the future of healthcare in London.Sunday, May 17, 2020
