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 11 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
Very helpful and friendly doctor and working through process of country specific certificate to fly.Thursday, January 20, 2022
The process was so easy, booking online system is very intuitive and rescheduling was a breeze. Sadly the NHS is suffering due to pressure so it was very comforting knowing I could get an appointment when I wanted it (and in my case, instantly). Highly recommend DocTapTuesday, January 18, 2022

It was very easy to book a blood test online for the location, date and time I wanted. All the locations are not far from tube stations and easy to get to. I saw Dr Stevenson who was friendly and efficient and explained what to expect with the results and any follow up needed. Majority of blood test results are received same day/next day which is a lot quicker than if done on the NHS. I would definitely recommend Doctap for the ease and convenience of booking online and seeing a doctor when it’s suits your schedule. If only they can expand their services outside of London then more people can potentially benefit!Monday, January 10, 2022
