Oh, THOSE numbers!

By Team RMI on August 23, 2016
And while ‘more mature’ Moms to be can see this as the green light for delaying childbirth or forgoing concern on the increasing difficulty of conceiving with age, Elena Trukhacheva MD, MSCI, President and Medical Director of Reproductive Medicine Institute (www.teamrmi.com) warns that numbers such as these must be viewed in context.  “Regardless of a woman’s overall good health, fitness and even how she ‘scores’ on tests that measure reproductive potential, age is the single greatest factor in a woman’s  ability to conceive and assures that woman over 40 will not be more fertile than those under 20.”
 
Variances in the measurements of fertility hormones such as Estrogen, Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) and Anti Mullerian Hormone (AMH) ,  can provide information on how well a woman may respond to medications used during fertility treatments in order to stimulate the production of eggs, ovulation et al.  “At the end of the day, however, it’s important to realize that a 40 year old woman with a great response to medication is still not as likely to get a ‘take home baby’ as a 20 year old woman with a much lesser response,” says Trukhacheva. 
 
Regardless, every journey begins with a single step.  For most women unable to conceive for six months on their own, that step is a thorough evaluation by a Reproductive Endocrinologist and Infertility Specialist (REI) to assess the best plan for maximizing conception regardless of age.  Says Dr. Trukhacheva,  “The great news is that, through Advanced Reproductive Technology (ART), most of our patients can achieve their dreams.”
