I have an 2cm ovarian cyst, does that mean my egg wasn't released?

It depends: Depends on which day of your cycle. If during your follicular phase of your cycle, it may mean that your follicle is not ovulated yet. If it is in your luteal phase, it may be a corpus luteal cyst ( a follicle after ovulation). Which means that your egg is already released. You may easily to determine which one by checking your BBT or Progesterone level. ...Read more

If ovarian tumor is the size of a small egg, how long has it been growing?

If ovarian tumor is the size of a small egg, how long has it been growing?

Hard to say: It would depend. Benign ovarian masses can have all types go growth rates. I suspect that you mean a cancer if malignant it's growth depends on the grade. I suspect tha this is what you mean. The higher the grade the faster the growth and the shorter the time. Your doctor can fill in the blanks and describe the growth rate for you. ...Read more

How's egg and ovarian tissue freezing done and how does that affect any embryo born?

How's egg and ovarian tissue freezing done and how does that affect any embryo born?

Low temperature: When eggs, fertilized or not, are frozen, the components are protected from ice crystal formation by the rapidity of the freeze. Dna, however, is very resistant to damage by this process as it is extremely stable so the effects on the future embryo are unlikely. ...Read more

I have an enlarged ovary and ovarian cysts, do you recommend me storing my eggs?

I have an enlarged ovary and ovarian cysts, do you recommend me storing my eggs?

Probably not: All women of reproductive age typically develop 3-5 small cysts on each over every month. One usually becomes a dominant cyst (egg or follicle) from which ovulation occurs. Oral contraceptives can reduce cyst number and size. Ask your gyn if there is a concern over pcos (polycystic ovarian syndrome) before considering anything. ...Read more

If you have ovarian cancer is it possible to freeze your eggs before your oophorectomy?

If you have ovarian cancer is it possible to freeze your eggs before your oophorectomy?

Yes: Conceivably it is possible, assuming the other ovary is normal and has no cancer in it. However, i think most physicians who harvest eggs, are probably uncomfortable treating a patient with cancer in the ovary, and thus may be reluctant to perform the harvest. You should discuss this with your oncologist who should guide you to the right decision. ...Read more

How many eggs can be retrieved (average) on 150ml gonal f (follitropin alfa) per day for mid ovarian reserve woman age 32 with endometriosis?

Very difficult to : Say exactly. Not knowing anything about your history makes this difficult but in general we start with 225 total units of gonadotropins and in a 32 year old with endometriosis the range is wide: 0-15. I am not a fan of giving a precise number becuase there are so many variables involved... ...Read more

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

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

Is the quality of eggs affected in the remaining ovarian tissue after bilateral partial oophorectomy for dermoid cysts?

I don't think so: As you may know, all of the eggs a human female will have in her lifetime are present in her ovaries at the time of her birth. The quality of them slowly degrades as she ages. Having part of the ovary removed will surely reduce the number of remaining eggs, but the quality of the remaining ones should be unchanged. ...Read more

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
