Fertility Treatment Options for Low Ovarian Reserve

Fertility Treatment Options for Low Ovarian Reserve

  1. <span  class="bbp-author-name">Natalie</span>

    Good morning,

    I was diagnosed with low ovarian reserve (I’m 37 years old) but my partner and I would like to become parents. My doctor told me that a natural pregnancy would be difficult so we should try assisted reproductive technologies. But I don’t know which of the methods are suitable for us. Can someone here guide me, please?

  2. Hi Natalie

    I’m in the same situation. I have diminished ovarian reserve and early menopause. Our doctor suggested in vitro fertilization and we tried 2 cycles and I was able to conceive at the second IVF.

    • Hi Lauren,

      thank you for answering. Which fertility clinic did you go to? I have absolutely no idea where to go. I’m from California and there are so many fertility clinics and I don’t have any clue
      based on which factors I have to make a decision.

    • We’re from AZ and we actually went to two fertility centers here. I didn’t feel quite comfortable at the first clinic (Arizona Associates for Reproductive Health) so we went to Gondra Center for Reproductive Care. I loved Dr. Gondra, she is so amazing. I always felt understood and cared for. Too bad that you’re from Cali. I would definitely recommend this clinic to you.

    • Hello Natalie,

      Patients with low ovarian reserve have fertility problems caused by a lack of ovulation and low estrogen levels. In these cases, ovarian stimulation for in vitro fertilization treatment with one’s own eggs is usually not effective.

      However, some women in their 30s and 40s can get good embryos through IVF with their own eggs, even if the number of eggs obtained is small. Another option is to perform an oocyte collection. If a positive result is not achieved in this way, it should already be passed on to egg donation.

      Choosing the right fertility clinic is not an easy task as many factors have to be taken into account such as treatments, location, IVF laboratory, etc. Therefore, I recommend the following article: Things to Consider to Choose the Right Fertility Clinic for You.

      Last but not least, our fertility report helps you determine which fertility treatment suits you best according to your situation. This tool also includes fertility centers in your area, a budget as well as useful tips for your first clinic visit.

      Hope this helps,

      wish you all the best.
