reserve refers to a woman’s present supply of eggs and this form
of testing can evaluate the quality and quantity of eggs a woman currently
has in her body. Ovarian reserve testing at Palm Beach Fertility Center

Understanding Fertility Potential
Ovarian reserve is closely related to a woman’s reproductive potential.
In most cases, normal ovarian reserve is related to normal fertility potential.
Decreased ovarian reserve can decrease the odds for getting pregnant.
Although it is expected that a woman’s ovaries will age in a specific
way, sometimes the decline of the ovarian reserve can be faster than expected.
That is why Dr. Denker considers ovarian reserve testing an essential
part of a woman’s initial infertility evaluation.
We offer a three step ovarian reserve and fertility potential testing procedure:
- Ultrasound allows our doctor to directly view the ovaries, and assess the
number of follicles present, as well as the size of the ovaries.
- AMH, Anti-Mullerian Hormone, is a blood test that can be drawn to evaluate
- We will also order blood testing for FSH, LH, estradiol, and inhibin-B.
Abnormal hormone levels can lead to female infertility, but can be corrected
with fertility medications.
Predicting Your Chances for Fertility
It is well known that egg quantity and quality decline as we age. No matter
your age, Dr. Denker will recommend ovarian reserve testing because fertility
can vary significantly in women of the same age group.
