Ovulation & Pregnancy Testing

Ovulation and pregnancy testing is something we are questioned about every day in the pharmacy. A major health problem increasing in Australia is that of “age related infertility.” Fertility is usually at its peak in a woman’s 20s and starts a slow decline as she reaches 30. By age 35, fertility starts to decline at a much faster rate. Al-though we do not wish to encourage women to have babies before they are ready both emotionally and financially, it is important to be aware of this change in the body as we age. This information leaflet will cover the basics of a woman’s menstrual cycle and how this relates to her fertility, as well as explaining what we have in the phar-macy to help with conception, test for pregnancy and then support mother and baby throughout the process.
