How the fertility specialists in Weston, FL, can help if you have DOR
Are you trying to get pregnant, but not having any success? You might have a condition known as DOR. Your fertility specialist can help.
Drs. Minna Selub, Kimball Pomeroy, and Nirvika Singh at Florida Institute For Reproductive Sciences And Technologies in Weston, FL, offer a wide range of reproductive and fertility services, including help if you have DOR.
Diminished Ovarian Reserve, also known as DOR, is a normal condition during which a woman’s reserve of eggs is declining. Women have a reserve of eggs which steadily decreases with menstruation. As a woman ages, the egg supply is reduced significantly, and eventually, every woman experiences DOR.
The rate of egg loss varies between women, and it also varies according to age. Egg loss is slower in younger women, and faster as a woman reaches her late thirties.
If you are having trouble getting pregnant, you may have DOR. Your fertility specialist can help determine if you have diminished ovarian reserve. DOR is diagnosed with blood tests and ultrasound imaging of your ovaries.
At Florida Institute For Reproductive Sciences And Technologies, your fertility specialists will try every option to use your eggs to attempt IVF. One option is Ministim or Natural Cycle IVF. This treatment focuses on minimal stimulation IVF using customized medication regimens.
Regimens may include anti-estrogen medications and gonadotropin. Your doctor will monitor follicular development and then extract the egg at the appropriate time.
Alternatively, your doctor may recommend using donor eggs if they are deemed healthier and offer you a better chance to conceive. Your fertility doctor will help you make the right decision.
