Dr. Banker helps a couple with Poor Ovarian Reserve

A couple, Mr. and Mrs. XX had a history of primary infertility for 6 years with very low ovarian reserve. Primary infertility is defined as a condition in which a couple is unable to conceive naturally even after having unprotected intercourse for over a year.

Poor ovarian reserve is a condition of low fertility characterized by a low number of remaining eggs in ovaries with reduced chances of conception.

During this time, they attempted fertility treatments from various clinics in the UK and underwent 5 IVF cycles with 5 embryo transfers before coming to us.

With a lot of hope, the couple then decided to visit Banker IVF Centre and Dr. Banker.


At Banker IVF, Dr. Banker did a thorough medical evaluation of their condition and advised them to undergo a couple of tests to assess the right treatment course like AMH and AFC measurement.

Treatment planned

Even after knowing very low chances of success, the couple wanted treatment with their own eggs only. They were planned for the ICSI cycle.

A good number of such women with a low ovarian reserve may conceive with their own eggs if they are given individualized treatment that is tailored for their profile. Such patients should be counselled appropriately for an aggressive approach toward achieving fertility. The sooner the treatment is started, the better the chances of pregnancy

IVF cycle and way forward

As advised by Dr. Banker, the couple underwent ICSI.

1 The first cycle resulted in the retrieval of 2 eggs with complete fertilization failure.

2. The second cycle was cancelled after some days of injections due to inadequate response.

3. In the third cycle, a different protocol was used, which resulted in the retrieval of 2 mature eggs, and 2 [ day 3] embryos were transferred.

Finally, she has conceived with a single pregnancy. 

The couple was delighted with the results, and they were immensely grateful to Dr. Banker and the entire team of Banker IVF for their guidance in their fertility journey.
