Fertility

A new way of helping patients better understand their unexplained reproductive health challenges

Introducing

23Plus

Unexplained Infertility
  • A diagnosis of unexplained infertility could be due to not falling pregnant for a year or more without an apparent reason, such as blocked fallopian tubes.
  • Our novel approach aims to bring together vital information found through whole-genome sequencing and artificial intelligence algorithms, to empower you and your clinicians to solve your fertility challenges.
Optimising Your Medication Regimen
  • Genes respond to medications in different ways. 23Strands analyses how your genees are responding to your prescribed medications and provide a recommendation to you and your fertility specialist on the best course of action to improving your chances of success.
Screening for potential carrier genes
  • We provide comprehensive genetic insights into reproductive carrier screening, determining if you are a carrier of a recessive genetic disease. Helping you to understand what are the potential risks of passing a genetic condition onto your future children.
Please let us know what you think about using genomics to better understand your current challenges in reproductive health by taking our short survey.

Consult with one of our Health Care Professionals

At this appointment, you will meet the team to determine if the 23Plus journey is right for you. You will need to provide details of your family history and personal medical history. This will allow us to provide you with recommendations if further diagnostic testing is required and for you to determine if Whole Genome Sequencing is your best course of action.

Consultation with Our Health Professionals

Your unique results allow our experts to offer advice to your doctors to help you make informed choices and decisions about your pregnancy. The information found and stated in the report will indicate whether or not you are a carrier of a genetic disorder.

If your results show that you are a carrier, it means you have a chance (called a variant) in one copy of a gene that could cause a genetic disorder in your child. In most cases, both you and your partner need to be carriers of the same condition for your child to be at increased risk. Reproductive options are available to couples who learn that they are carriers. Your fertility specialists can explain these to you if this is required.

Ongoing Treatment Pathways & Monitoring

Your report will be shared with your referring general practitioner, this is important for the continued treatment and management of care for information found during carrier screening and unrelated fertility issues such as general health and wellbeing.

Any other indicators in your genome which may need to be reviewed will be managed in a primary care setting. Continued care over time will be managed by your chosen clinician.
