Diminished Ovarian Reserve
Diminished Ovarian Reserve is a condition in which the ovaries lose their normal reproductive potential, resulting in infertility. Although this is most commonly caused by aging, it can also be caused by disease, endometriosis, pelvic infection, chemotherapy or injuries caused by previous surgery.
What can I do about my diminishing ovarian reserves?
Once the physician has identified that the ovarian reserves are diminished the couple is advised to promptly plan to reproduce before fertility is further compromised. This can be done by cryo-preserving (freeze) eggs or embryos for future pregnancies.
