Just got back from my RE,and he did an ultrasound and said that my ovaries are small, and sometimes that could be a problem too.... since we have been trying for more than 2yrs now and had 2 failed IUI's too.
he also suggested to do clomid challenge test,so we way we get more info about everything.
so was just wondering if anyone had this problem and had any success getting preg!!!
I have one smaller ovary, actually they couldn't find my left one it was so samll, but I since then have found out I have diminished ovarian reserve, which means I don't have many eggs left and my ovaries look like I am a 40 year old (I am 30) we found this out from clomid challenge test.
Yes, I found out I have small ovaries when I started seeing an RE for infertility. I also found out I have High FSH, which is why the ovaries are so small, meaning less eggs left. I was 36 at the time. We TTC for about 2 years before that and did a High stim cycle w/ Double IUI (failed) and it took a high amount of Gonal F for me to stim. I got 4-5 mature follicles. It failed, so we pretty much gave up.
We then moved on to another goal: get a new house built. A month into the building process we conceived! Naturally! I had a great, uneventful pregnancy and delivered a healthy, gorgeous baby girl in Aug. '05.
Just because your ovaries are small doesn't mean that there aren't enough eggs to conceive. Usually it takes longer though. I wish the best for you!
I am so happy for you. I have a similar situation. small ovaries, normal FSH. age 41 had highest stimulant of Gonal-F but, was unsuccessful. I had 3 follicles but, did not mature enough. i welcom any info you have thanks
I was born without a uterus. My husband's cousin wanted to be our surrogant. So went began to see an RE. When I first saw the RE she draw a lot of blood from all of us. The RE did a sonogram everytime we visited the office. The RE had to prepare my surrogant's uterus and prepare my ovaries to ovulate. So after about a month of she gave both of us our first shot of Lupron. Than two weeks later we got more Lupron. Than two after the RE began us on Follistim, aspirin, prenatals and something else. My first sonogram the RE said I was still suppressed from the Lupron. Three days later my next sonogram I was to gasy for the RE to see anything. Yesterday the RE found no respones to all the drugs. She told me this happens. I want to know if the RE over suppressed me. I want to know why she wants to put me on estrogen for a couple of months instead if giving me CCCT test to see if there's something wrong with my ovaries. I've spent the night crying and my RE isn't availible till tomorrow. Is there anyone who has any info or advice?

My DH and I have been TTC for over 4 years I am 35 years old have gone through 4 clomid cycles and 6 IUI cycles 6 IUI with injections and 1 failed IVF cycle. Just yesterday I went through laparoscopy and they found mild endometriosis he stated I have one smaller ovary but I have beautiful fallopian tubes and nice uterus. The Dr. removed the endometriosis successfully I read that my chances of getting PG are nearly 75% over the next 36 days to 2 years. I'm very hopeful I'm going to try clomid again next month as the Dr says this month is not the month to try basedon the stress of the surgery. All I have to say is those with children be fortunate that you have them those of us who have spent thousands upon thousands, disappointment after disappointment are hoping for a miracle. Also we started the adoption process as we want a big family however God wants to give it to us. Good luck to all those TTC, I swear to you God does answer prayers.
