What are my chances of concieveing with IVF if I have decreased ovarian reserve and severe endo?

Endometriosis/DOR: It depends on several factors. Knowing your day 2/3 fsh/ Estradiol and your amh levels and antral count would help to evaluate your chance for success. Still, you are young and may have more choices to consider. ...Read more

Ivf (Definition)

In vitro fertilization is an assisted reproductive technology. Ivf is a procedure used to treat fertility problems and assist with the conception of a child. During ivf mature eggs are retrieved from the ovaries and fertilized by sperm in a lab. A few days later, the fertilized egg (embryo) or eggs are implanted into the uterus. One cycle of in vitro fertilization ...Read more

My AMH is 7.12 is that indicates good ovarian reserve for IVF ?

My AMH is 7.12 is that indicates good ovarian reserve for IVF ?

Sort of: AMH is produced by the cells around the early eggs. The number you want is above 1. You clearly have that. However anytime the AMH is above 4 it may indicate the patient has an issue called: Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS). Women with PCOS may have a lot of eggs but sometimes have issues releasing those eggs and in IVF sometimes have poor outcomes (no success). Talk to your doctor. ...Read more

It may not absorb: If it is truly a hemorrhagic cyst it should resolve in 4-6 weeks if not sooner. If it is an endometrioma, it may not resolve on its own and may require surgery to improve your ivf outcome. I recommend you talk to your reproductive endocrinologist about strategy here. You don't want to lose time if you have diminished ovarian reserve. ...Read more

37 year old IVF patient with decreased ovarian reserve. Should i continue trying or use donor eggs?

It depends: Donor eggs will clearly be the better option for having a healthy baby. There is no question that the chance of having a healthy baby is lower if you try to use your own eggs, especially when you have decreased reserve. If you already tried ivf but didn't get pregnant, it might be worth another try as long as you stimulated well and had 5 or more eggs. Otherwise i think donor eggs are best. ...Read more

Please help will taking bcp shrink a hemorrhagic ovarian lg cyst? Had for 7 weeks and keeps getting larger. history endo and dor waiting for IVF after cyst

Ovarian Cyst: This suggests that this cyst is not being regulated by hormones (ocs) and its likely not going to respond. You may need surgery to have it removed in order to move to ivf. This can also be an endometrioma with your history and you need this corrected prior to ivf. Good luck! ...Read more

Does multiple ivf treatments cause a risk of ovarian cancer?

Does multiple ivf treatments cause a risk of ovarian cancer?

No: It increases your risk of bankruptcy, at least in the US. You state that you are only 28. Have you and your spouse had a full infertility workup. In the US, unless you had your Fallopian tubes tied or scarred, no reputable Ob-Gyn would consider you as a candidate for IVF. Maybe you some other issue that you have revealed yet?? ...Read more
