In women who are poor responders, there is medical evidence for similar live birth rates using high dose ovarian stimulation vs. Natural cycle, particularly in younger women. This is presumably because poor responders do not produce many eggs and high does’ stimulation may be detrimental to egg quality. Younger reproductive aged women have the advantage of better egg quality. In older reproductive age women who are poor responders, the option of egg donation is usually much more successful in achieving a live birth. However, the optimal approach to the poor responder is far from certain.
