That's why doctors at Spire Liverpool Hospital have started offering 'fertility MOTS' to couples who want to know what the future has in store for them. During the MOT, patients are given a range of tests so they can decide when they should start thinking about a family.
Dr Yasmin Sajjad, a fertility consultant at Spire Liverpool Hospital says: "The growing popularity of our fertility MOTs reflects a rising trend of young couples and singles seeking peace of mind on their fertility status."
She adds: "Between the ages of 25 and 27, a woman's fertility is already starting to decline, and upon reaching 35, chances of conception have often halved. Women who take an early assessment of their fertility can make informed decisions about their options later down the line."
Dr Yasmin also notes that, even without an MOT, there are things that all women can do to boost their fertility and give themselves the best chance of conceiving further down the line.
