Here at The Fertility Shop we are passionate about supporting your journey to parenthood – together we can contribute to improving the health of a whole generation, and generations to follow! This why we have partnered with ScreenMe to bring you easy to use at home testing kits for Fertility hormones, nutrition, microbiome and vaginal health testing. Research has shown the impacts of todays lifestyle and diet on individuals reproductive health and the consequence of that on their fertility and on the health of the future generation. Unfortunately the healthcare system is so focused on diagnosing and treating illness that very little is done to prevent conditions or address the indirect causes of symptoms and conditions. When advice is given, it rarely goes beyond the standard things that we all know. Eat more fruit and veg, less fat and sugar. Lose weight, take up exercise and don’t smoke.

What people needed is good quality information

What people needed is good quality information, specific to them and easy to both understand and put into practice. They needed to know exactly what changes to make, to have a way to track their progress, and to have access to that information before it’s too late or before decisions are made for other invasive procedures!

General advice for diet in fertility can only go so far. After all, not everyone has the same cycle and problems.

By getting to know your unique cycle, your micronutrient levels, your hormones and your microbiome we can make suggestions that are tailored exactly to you. You can then cook the meals you love, using ingredients that will give you the best possible chance of natural conception, and your baby the best start in life.

With ScreenMe, taking control of your fertility and tackling preventable disease is easy. And you’ll even get consultations with your very own health expert! There’s no need to go to a clinic, we send everything you need right to your door. Simply send back your samples and we will send your results, along with fully personalized advice.
