Ovarian Reserve

As a woman gets older, the number of viable, healthy eggs remaining in her ovaries diminishes. While a woman continues to ovulate monthly from her late 30s until menopause, the eggs she produces are increasingly at risk for genetic abnormalities such as Down syndrome. Ovarian reserve is a term used to refer to a woman's "reproductive potential"; i.e., the chances that a woman will have a successful pregnancy with her own eggs. In order to evaluate ovarian reserve, doctors use tests such as the FSH and Estradiol level on Cycle Day 2 or 3, AMH (Anti-Mullerian Hormone) level, and Antral Follicle Count.
