We are able to carry out Anti-Mullerian hormone “AMH” testing on site every day. Turnaround times for results are typically within 4 hours.
For anyone undergoing IVF treatment we recognise that it is a complicated and stressful process, often requiring regular blood tests for a variety of hormones. These tests are often required to be carried out on predetermined days.
At Nationwide Pathology we facilitate this need by assisting you to have your tests carried out at the appropriate time. Appointments can be flexible and at short notice. We can send the results directly back to your clinic whether in the UK or abroad, the same day.
Around 30% of the world population (1.7 billion people) is estimated to harbour M. tuberculosis infection. In patients with pulmonary tuberculosis 8-15% also have urogenital tuberculosis. It affects more men than women (2:1) at a mean age of around 40 years and has an insidious onset, with urinary symptoms developing in more-advanced disease.
The genitourinary tract is the most common site, after the lungs, for tuberculous infection. Most women with genital tuberculosis present with infertility and pregnancy is unusual, and unlikely, in the presence of genital tuberculosis. When pregnancy occurs, spontaneous abortion, or ectopic pregnancy, often occur.
Endometrial TB is often not considered or misdiagnosed in infertile women particularly in women with infertility of unknown cause. The exact incidence of infertility in patients with genital tuberculosis is not known, but in parts of the world where tuberculosis is common, genital tuberculosis is an important cause of infertility. Women with TB endometritis will also have infection of the fallopian tubes, with irreversible damage to the tubes (TB Salpingitis). Treatment options are IVF.
TB in Female Patients – can affect any part of the genital tract but more commonly involves the fallopian tubes, tuberculous endometritis/salpingitis.
TB in Male Patients – tuberculous epididymo-orchitis/azoospermia
