Get right treatment: A fertility specialist (reproductive endocrinologist) can assess your individual situation - how low is your ovarian reserve (egg supply), your age, any tube or sperm problems? - then come up with a treatment plan that's right for you. Some women with low ovarian reserve need tablets or shots to release more eggs, some need in vitro fertilization (ivf) with their own eggs, and some need donor egg.
