Diminished ovarian reserve with low egg supply. Would u rec Clomid (clomiphene) with IUI or injectable with iui. I am 35 years old?

Diminished ovarian reserve with low egg supply. Would u rec Clomid (clomiphene) with IUI or injectable with iui. I am 35 years old?

Yes, IVF is better: At age 39 with DOR, you may try few cycles Clomid (clomiphene) IUI, but IVF is a better option. The reason is with DOR, you don't have many embryos to work with. On the other hand, if you do IVF, you may bank embryos and do FET later. At age 39, I strongly recommend to do Pre-implantation genetic screening (PGS) of your embryos prior to transfer. It will increase your change of pregnancy and reduce miscarriage ...Read more

Does high quantity of eggs retrieved in a pcos patient affect the quality of eggs ? Does pcos patients produce more eggs than a normal female ?

Sort of: Most ivf programs see a trend. Women with pcos who undergo stimulation typically have vigorous responses with very high Estradiol levels, along with a higher-than-average risk for hyperstimulation syndrome. Large number of eggs may be retrieved but usually of lesser quality. Anecdotally, most have seen large follicle numbers but with low egg yield. ...Read more
