yumurta rezervi dusuklugu amh nedir

Egg reserve lowness is a reduction in the count of eggs (follicles) available in the ovaries. Because of today’s gradually increasing maternity age, it is a commonly encountered infertility cause. Egg count and quality, which begin to decline after the age of 35, may cause the eggs to lose their fertilization capacity. In some cases, AMH lowness can also be observed in the women who are young and in the reproductive age range.

The Causes of Egg Reserve Lowness

Advanced age is the most common factor seen in the egg reserve lowness. As the age advances, lowness in the egg count and quality can be seen as a biological process. In addition to this, strong treatments such as radiotherapy or chemotherapy, surgeries related to the ovaries, smoking, alcohol consumption, taking drugs, obesity, turner syndrome and chocolate cyst (endometriosis) are among the factors reducing the egg count and quality.

What Are The Symptoms Of Egg Reserve Lowness?

There is a direct relation between the egg count and menstrual cycle. Women with a sufficient egg count have a normal menstrual period that lasts between 21 and 35 days. However, a shortening in the menstrual durations and an increase in the menstrual bleeding are seen when there is a reserve lowness. Menstrual irregularities, on the other hand, are not a symptom that every woman with AMH lowness shows. When the cause of infertility is examined, a reserve lowness is revealed. 

How Is Egg Reserve Lowness Diagnosed?

Low egg reserve can be diagnosed using both clinical and radiological tests. Egg structure and follicle count can be determined using transvaginal ultrasound. A comment can be made about the follicle count of a person by comparing the age and the follicle count. A blood test is carried out on the 3rd day of the menstruation for a more extensive examination. AMH (anti-mullerian hormone) and FSH are examined with this test. Both are important hormones that provide information about the egg count. AMH levels vary with age. As a result, the hormone value required for each age group is different. One of the early menopause symptoms is a low AHM value. FSH (follicle stimulant hormone) is a hormone which affects the egg development and is secreted by pituitary gland. Highness of FSH can indicate low egg count.

Can A Pregnancy Occur When Egg Reserve Is Low?

IVF treatment is recommended for women who have a low egg reserve. By combining qualified eggs with sperm in a laboratory setting, women are guaranteed to become pregnant. If the internal structure of a woman’s uterus is capable of holding an embryo, the pregnancy process can be successful.

Aside from UVF treatment, a woman can be guaranteed to become pregnant by using the pooling treatment method. Qualified eggs can be transferred later by collecting them using the pooling method. In both of these cases, the success rate is high.
