Our expert says:
It is a well know fact that age is the single most important determinant of fertility prognosis beyond the age of 35. It is fairly difficult to predict your fertility status as this stage. You have to bear in mind that not only you have to be evaluated but also your partner. However as a start I would recommend a routine gynaecological workup including anatomical and hormonal systems. A every important test has now been introduced called AMH (anti-mullerian hormone) which is a good and accurate predicator of ovarian reserve or the capacity of the ovaries to produce eggs and this test should be included as well. You should also convince your partner to have a semen analysis done at this stage.
