Postcoital test (PCT)

Postcoital test (PCT)

Also known as the Huhner Test, this is the now-outdated assessment of cervical mucus after sex to evaluate its quality and ability to allow sperm to freely swim through. However, doctors now consider this test inaccurate and unnecessarily invasive. Talk to your doctor about other more accurate ways of assessing your/your partner’s fertility.
