Ovarian Reserve Testing at Our Fertility Clinic
The number of available eggs a woman has available is very important when assessing fertility and possible treatments. While there is an average number of eggs a woman has, every person is different. Estimating that figure is made possible through ovarian reserve testing, which is available at our Raleigh, NC fertility clinic. Atlantic Reproductive Center helps build families, in partnership with our valued patients.
While ORTs can give you and your doctor a good idea of the total number of eggs stored in the ovary, they don’t give much of an indication of the quality of the eggs themselves. The fact remains, however, that ovarian reserve testing can go a long way in treating infertility through in vitro fertilization, controlled ovarian stimulation and more. It can also open up the opportunity to explore certain fertility preservation options such as egg banking.
What Do the Results of Ovarian Reserve Tests Mean?
As you would expect, a higher number of eggs normally translates into a higher chance of pregnancy and vice versa. It’s important to keep in mind, too, that results that come back on the lower end of the spectrum don’t always translate to complete infertility. They can simply mean that, while your chances of conceiving are lower, it’s not necessarily impossible, and your doctor can use this approach to present additional, more accurate treatment options.
