“Women everywhere should have the option to be proactive about their reproductive healthcare,” said Yesmom CEO Peter Macquart-Moulin. “While lab testing for fertility in Asia remains inaccessible to most consumers due to cost and confusing outcomes, we’ve developed an accessible, affordable at-home fertility testing kit that’s easy to use and provides quick results that are simple to understand.”

By examining the six fertility hormones Anti-Mullerian Hormone (AMH), Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH), Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH), Free Thyroxine (ft4), Prolactin (PRL), and Testosterone (TT), Yesmom’s kit shows how hormone levels can affect egg freezing or IVF, screens for thyroid dysfunction that could negatively impact conception and flags anything that could affect normal ovulation and the fertility window. It also enables women to learn more about menopause and make informed and timed decisions on their reproductive future.
The test can indicate whether a woman may have Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), a condition that affects up to 20% of women, often undiagnosed, and is a leading cause of infertility.
B. And for women who don’t want children?
“Hormone testing is a great way to keep track of your overall health. The benefit of spotting and treating conditions like PCOS early on is that it can prevent further complications. These include diabetes, blood pressure abnormalities, and even life-threatening conditions like heart disease and cancer,” says Yesmom Fertility’s Medical Advisor Dr. Olarik.
“Hormone testing is not only an important part in women’s proactive reproductive healthcare, it’s also an important part in women’s overall preventative healthcare!”
The test kits are currently available in India and Thailand with further expansion across SE Asia expected before the end of the year.
