Conditions We Treat: Diminished Ovarian Reserve

Diminished ovarian reserve, a condition affecting nearly one-third of infertility patients, refers to a decrease in the quality and quantity of a woman’s eggs in her ovaries, which impacts her fertility.

Aging is the most common cause of diminished ovarian reserve, but it can be caused by disease, prior surgeries, certain medications and genetic disorders.
