The Screening Female Fertility is a set of serology, biochemical, genetic and microbiological to search for infectious agents, hormonal changes and / or gene that can cause infertility .
It is possible to carry out 2 types of screening:

The Female Fertility Screening Plus also includes the analysis of the karyotype on peripheral blood and of the main mutations of cystic fibrosis and fragile X.
Some pathologies that alter the structure and functioning of the reproductive organs, sexually transmitted infections, genetic and hormonal alterations, but also environmental factors and inadequate lifestyles can compromise fertility.
Infertility can be
Primary when a conception has never occurred
Secondary when it occurs after a previous pregnancy.
The test is particularly indicated in the controlled ovarian stimulation (COS) and in the evaluation of the ovarian reserve.
WHAT ARE THE REASONS FOR THIS INCREASING DECLINE IN FERTILITY?
One of the reasons concerns the mismatch between the biological age and the “social” age in which the first child is sought. Female fertility is highest at an age now considered to be very early for reproduction. Women in developed countries study and look for work before getting married. And couples tend to postpone the birth of their first (and increasingly only) child after reaching economic goals, such as buying a house, or after taking time for experiences, such as travel and vacations, for which children are experienced as obstacles. Other factors (smoking, alcohol abuse, working conditions, pollution) can also adversely affect fertility.
