Your blood test results contribute to your fertility story and may help you determine why you’re not getting pregnant. Too often, patients come to me and say they’ve had blood work done but that the results are “normal” yet they’re not. Sadly, what is often considered normal to a medical doctor may not be normal to me as a Chinese medical doctor. One of the most common examples I see in my fertility clinic is the thyroid test. Although the test may reveal a “normal” result because it’s within the lab’s reference ranges, the thyroid function may be interfering with conception and may show up as imbalances in the body from a Chinese medical perspective. Other lab values that I tend to see issues with are AMH, FSH, Prolactin and Testosterone, to name a few.
