Are low reserve and low ovarian response the same thing?

By Marta Barranquero Gómez B.Sc., M.Sc. (embryologist).
Last Update: 04/07/2022

No. Ovarian reserve refers to the number of eggs available in a woman at a given time in her life. For example, if the woman has a maximum of 6 eggs and 4 mature eggs are obtained in the puncture, this would be considered a normal ovarian response.

On the other hand, the low ovarian response is when there are many eggs available, but only 3 or fewer mature eggs are obtained.
