HI there,

What is the cause of Deminished Ovarian Reserve?

I am 34 with an FSH of 18.5 and AMH of 0.55.

What caused the premature decline in fertility?

Thank you kindly.

Dear hello kitty
This is an exhaustive question and cannot be answered completely in this forum, however there are several reasons including genetic factors, auto immune factors as well as factors relating to infections as well as post ovarian surgery. A woman is born with a fixed compliment of eggs, and should this quantity of eggs be reduced, than it is probable that early menopause may occur. Alternately the initial compliment may be normal but there is increase consumption or destruction of these eggs due to the factors mentioned above. Therefore these will need to be investigated further.
