During IVF, Why Do I Have So Few Eggs compared to others? IVF USA's Dr. Nathan Zhang Discusses IVF in the USA and Thailand

For couples undergoing IVF ovarian stimulation, why do some women retrieve more eggs than others? This seems to be a question worth pondering. The cases of Tao Tao (alias) and Xiao Yue (alias) illustrate this difference well: on the same day of egg retrieval, Tao Tao retrieved 12 eggs, while Xiao Yue only retrieved 3. So why such a significant difference? Moreover, some people believe that the more eggs retrieved, the better. But how many eggs retrieved during IVF is ideal?


Dr. Nathan Zhang, a leading expert in the field of assisted reproduction, a medical doctor educated in the USA, and the founder of IVF USA, explains: In IVF treatment, the number of eggs retrieved is an important indicator because it directly correlates with the quantity of embryos. However, more eggs retrieved does not necessarily mean better outcomes, as the number of eggs retrieved is also associated with the risk of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS). Studies have shown that when the number of eggs retrieved exceeds 15, the risk of OHSS significantly increases, but the live birth rate in fresh cycles does not increase accordingly. Therefore, generally speaking, the number of eggs retrieved during IVF treatment usually does not exceed 15. However, the specific number of eggs retrieved still needs to be determined based on individual female circumstances.


There are many factors that can affect the number of eggs retrieved, including the age of the egg retriever, the quality of the ovarian follicles, the timing of egg retrieval, the choice of ovarian stimulation protocol, and the level of medical expertise. Firstly, age is a crucial factor. As women age, ovarian function gradually declines, leading to a decrease in both the quantity and quality of eggs. Secondly, the quality of ovarian follicles is closely related to the timing and dosage of ovarian stimulation drugs. Genetic abnormalities or irregular medication can also affect follicle quality. Additionally, the timing of egg retrieval is crucial, as retrieving eggs too early or too late can affect both the quality and quantity of eggs retrieved. Lastly, the level of medical expertise and the skills of the physician are also crucial for a successful egg retrieval process.


In cases where the number of eggs retrieved is low, American doctors will analyze the specific reasons and adjust the fertility treatment plan accordingly. When undergoing IVF treatment in the USA, patients will receive personalized and professional services. Doctors will tailor the treatment plan according to the patient's specific situation and cooperate with advanced laboratory techniques and extensive clinical experience to ensure the success of the treatment.
