There are a number of reasons for low egg reserves in women. Ovarian reserve may be low in women due to infertility problems, advancing age, menopause, premature menopause, and ovarian diseases like PCOS.
In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) can be offered as an option to women with low egg reserves. But the real problem is the quality of the eggs and how mature they are. If the eggs are not of good quality, the chances of success almost disappears.
In addition to the age of the female, the ovarian reserve is of great importance for pregnancy. If high quality and mature eggs can not be collected from the mother after the necessary medication has been administered, the IVF treatment will fail.
Hormone medication can be given to make the eggs of the mother have an improved quality and more mature. The medication treatment plan lasts approximately two weeks. At the end of the medication treatment plan, the patient undergoes an egg collection, also known as OPU. The more mature and better quality eggs that are harvested, the higher the chances are of pregnancy. Generally, the chances of pregnancy are gradually decrease in women starting from the age of 30. As the woman ages, so do her ovaries. Couples who want to have children but have been unsuccessful for a significant amount of time need to act as soon as possible, with consideration of their age, ovarian quality, sperm quality, and overall health.
