Ovarian Reserve & Using Your Own Eggs

If you are over 40 and considering IVF treatments, there may be a chance our reproductive endocrinologist (RE) will recommend you use an egg donor with your IVF cycle. To determine whether you need a donor egg, our RE will order a few tests, to measure your so called ovarian reserve. These tests are Antral Follicle Count (ultrasound test), Day 3 FSH test, and AMH level test. Although these tests are not perfect, they will tell a great deal whether you have eggs and shed some light on whether your eggs are in good condition and can be used with your IVF treatments.
