Our expert says:
What is of great concern to me is that despite having an IVF cycle, both long and short, that you did not produce any eggs. This is not necessarily due to a hormonal imbalance and may be more particularly related to a very poor ovarian reserve. In that particular case one may not be able to correct the hormones to produce any eggs. If however you have a normal ovarian reserve but a very resistant ovary such as in severe polycystic ovarian syndrome then in this case you can stimulate the ovaries and remove immature follicles. Then in a laboratory setting a procedure known as in-vitro maturation [IVM] can be undertaken to mature the small/immature oocytes. If maturation is successful then theses oocytes can be fertilized and transferred back into the uterus.
