Diminished Ovarian Reserve Treatment Boca Raton & Aventura

Learn How We Can Help You Conceive

Diminished Ovarian Reserve, or DOR, is a natural part of aging and occurs when a woman’s ovaries have a low egg (ovarian) reserve. Some women have premature DOR from aggressive medical treatments that damage the reproductive system, such as radiation therapy for cancer. Other women have no apparent cause for their DOR. Generally, a woman’s ovarian reserve will decrease prior to the start of menopause. By the onset of menopause, most women only have around 1,000 eggs left in their ovaries of the 2 million eggs they were born with (women continuously lose eggs, which do not replenish).

Upon diagnosis of DOR, your doctor will immediately formulate a fertility treatment plan through assisted reproductive technology. While many women are disheartened to receive a DOR diagnosis, many of our DOR patients at Palm Beach Fertility Center have gotten pregnant using their own eggs.

It’s important to note there is no treatment to stop the progress of diminished ovarian reserve, but women who have low egg count or quality are sometimes able to get pregnant using assisted reproductive technology. Even women with a combination of challenges, such as DOR in addition to advanced maternal age, have successfully conceived. At Palm Beach Fertility Center, we use only the most advanced fertility-boosting techniques and tailor treatment plans to each patient.

Women diagnosed with DOR may try fertility preservation of their remaining eggs and freezing them for later use. They may also be treated with ovarian superovulation, an exaggerated form of inducing ovulation that aims to induce multiple eggs in one cycle. These eggs are then collected for use in a fresh IVF cycle.

Many patients with DOR resort to donor eggs to achieve pregnancy, which can be fertilized by their male partner’s sperm or donated sperm. Once the donor egg is fertilized via IVF in our laboratory, the embryo is then implanted in her uterus, where it will grow into a healthy baby. While the resulting baby will not inherit the birth mother’s genes (the baby will have the genes from the egg donor and the genes from the male partner’s sperm), the egg donor recipient gets to experience the joys of pregnancy and giving birth.

How Palm Beach Fertility Treats DOR

While other clinics will often quote that a woman has a less than a 1% chance to achieve pregnancy with her own eggs if she has conditions such as DOR and/or advanced maternal age, our clinic has considerably improved these odds. We have spent many years working on developing new strategies and protocols based on our own findings and breakthrough research studies. Before commencing treatment, we will meticulously assess any other factors that may be affecting your fertility. After our assessment is complete, we will then discuss your unique range of options and work with you to formulate a sound medical plan that will offer you the best odds to become pregnant using your own eggs, whenever possible.

Whatever your situation may be, you can rely on our caring team in the nurturing environment of Palm Beach Fertility Center to help. Reach out to us today at (888) 819-5177 if you are interested in an appointment to discuss your options.
