There are many tests available that can help you plan your family. Planning a family can be exciting and very rewarding emotionally. Deciding to have children can bring a lot of joy and happiness for the couple concerned. Sometimes there are problems in being unable to conceive. If you have been trying for a few months to become pregnant and there’s no baby on the way, there may be a number of reasons why. Infertility means that you are unable to get pregnant generally after six months to one year of trying. It’s quite a common medical problem with around 10% of women who have difficulty becoming pregnant or staying pregnant.

If you have been trying for a few months to become pregnant and there’s no baby on the way, there may be a number of reasons why. 

 Infertility doesn’t just affect women. Men can also suffer from infertility. Statistics have shown that where there are difficulties in planning a family, 30% of cases are down to the man being infertile. Men, much more than women, don’t like to talk about fertility worries. They tend to keep the subject under wraps, after all no man likes to admit he’s infertile. Infertility in men can be due to low sperm count or testosterone levels. There’s also a medical condition called varicocele. This is when the veins on a man’s testicles are too large. The veins heat the testicles which in turn lower the number of or shape of the sperm. Injury or illness such as cystic fibrosis is another reason why you might be infertile. Health and lifestyle can also affect fertility in men like:-

  •  Heavy alcohol abuse
  • Smoking cigarettes
  • Drugs
  • Environmental toxins for instance pesticides and lead
  • Taking too much medication
  • Age
  • Radiation treatment

 Other health problems to affect the planning of a family could be related to kidney disease, hormones or mumps.

Family Planning tests at Home:-

Female infertility can be caused by issues with ovulation. If there is no ovulation then there can be no eggs to fertilize and so a baby cannot be conceived. Signs of abnormal ovulation can be with women who are having irregular or absent menstrual periods. If you’re worried about being infertile or not ovulating you can buy affordable home test kits which will provide you with the answer you’re looking for. These ovulation and female fertility home test kits are easy to use in the privacy of your own home. There’s no need to visit a clinic or your doctor, so complete confidentiality is guaranteed.

A home fertility test kit can tell whether your sperm count or testosterone levels are normal. It measures the sperm count, in other words, the number of sperm in the semen ejaculated during an orgasm. Studies have shown that men’s fertility test kits are very accurate so you don’t have to be embarrassed about visiting a doctor or a family planning clinic. This type of test can be carried out at home.

Now are you curious to find out if you’re expecting a baby boy or a baby girl? Maybe you have a daughter and would desperately love to have a son or vice versa. Gender prediction tests can, as the name suggests, give you a good indication of the sex of the baby you are carrying. Gender home test kits can be used as early as the ninth week of pregnancy. They are non-invasive, pain free and provide 95% accuracy levels.

Family planning can also be a major issue if you’re not too sure who the father is. Disputes regarding the father of the child can be upsetting for all concerned. If you’re in this situation, easy to use paternity home test kits can be purchased online. They are very accurate where the paternity of the child is concerned. You’ll only have to wait for 3-5 days to find out the results.
