Modern Fertility

For reports on fertility hormones

Our favorite thing about the Modern Fertility Hormone Test is the knowledge it gave us about our own fertility hormones. Information is power.

  • Efficacy

    Hormones are just one of many fertility data points, so it can't tell you if you're infertile.

  • Transparency

    Modern Fertility is super transparent about what they can provide you and how they source all of their health information.

  • Accessibility

    The $159 test is not covered by insurance but overall the test is way cheaper than clinical testing.

For anyone who doesn't regularly take blood samples at home (most of us), Modern Fertility is like a friendly, thorough expert who will hold your hand throughout the entire process. From our testing, the real value of the service became clear when we got our results back after mailing in our blood sample. Your results come with in-depth reports, which essentially break down your hormone levels as they relate to things like your ovarian reserve, thyroid health, egg freezing and IVF, ovulation and menopause.

Pros

  • Your results and reports also come with a downloadable PDF that you can bring to your doctor.

  • Modern Fertility is transparent about where they source their information, with references to published literature that you can read for more information.

  • Your fertility hormone profile is reviewed by a physician and sent to your private dashboard within a few days.

  • When you order a Modern Fertility Hormone Test, you’re given access to their community (in Slack). The community is essentially a safe space online to talk about health and fertility with experts and others thinking about similar topics.

Cons

  • If you are one hormonal birth control, Modern Fertility can only test for your AMH (one of the best indicators of your ovarian reserve), so the scope of your results will be relatively small.

  • The $159 test is not covered by insurance.

Tips

  • Our editor was in New York when she tried to order the Modern Fertility Hormone Test, which is not one of the states where the test currently ships to. Instead, she shipped her order to a friend’s house in one of the states where Modern Fertility delivers in order to get the test and that worked great.

It was super convenient to be able to do the blood test in my own home, without a doctor's order. Personally, I was looking to shed light on why I hadn't gotten pregnant yet, but had no insurance coverage for fertility testing, and was within the 1-year mark, so my doctor wasn't willing to order any tests. The test results were incredibly useful when we did finally go to see an RE, and I didn't have to re-do any of them before we started treatment. My only issue with the results were that for many of the tests, the "normal" ranges seemed too broad compared to what reproductive endocrinologists would use, which could lead to a false sense of security if no further research is done on the consumer's end

I tested once and had two abnormal levels which they retested for free so I’ve used it twice. I liked doing it at home, not needing an order from my doctor, the personalized report and access to community. Ultimately, the results took a while and my doctor dismissed them.

Pros - lab results with explanation, control of when you want to test, reasonable cost for those trying to conceive who may not have insurance. Cons - only gives you two sample cards for at-home test. If you mess up, you don’t have an opportunity to correct (they will mail you another free of charge but I feel like you should get an extra card for blood sample in case something goes wrong).
