Understanding Diminished Ovarian Reserve
Diminished Ovarian Reserve (DOR) is like a mountain – steep and challenging. It’s a condition where the number of eggs in your ovaries has significantly dropped. This makes getting pregnant tougher. But remember, tougher doesn’t mean impossible.
Stepping foot into an infertility clinic can be stressful. There’s fear of the unknown. There’s anticipation. It’s normal. I want to assure you, that you’re not alone. Take a deep breath. We’re heading up the mountain together.
What to Expect
First visits usually involve lots of questions. You’ll likely undergo some tests. These provide an insight into your fertility health. You may feel like a lab rat, but every test brings you one step closer to the summit.
What to Bring
- Your medical history – This aids the specialist in understanding your situation better.
- Questions – You’re likely to have a ton of them. Write them down. No question is too trivial when it comes to your health.
- A support person – This can be emotionally draining. Having someone you trust by your side can be incredibly helpful.
