What do we know about oocyte quality and its impact on fertility?

The Importance of Oocyte Quality

As women age, especially after age 35, not only does the number of eggs available in their ovaries decrease, but their quality is also compromised. Oocyte quality is crucial, as it determines the ability of an egg to develop into a healthy embryo once fertilized.

Understanding Oocyte Quality

To become a viable embryo, the egg must have the appropriate chromosomes and the energy necessary for normal growth and division. A low-quality egg can significantly affect the reproductive process and increase the risk of pregnancies with chromosomal abnormalities.

Factors That Affect Oocyte Quality

In addition to age, several factors can influence egg quality, even in younger women. These include:

Diagnosis of Oocyte Quality

Tests for hormones such as FSH and estradiol may be performed to evaluate ovarian response. However, the most effective method to determine the quality of the eggs is through a cycle of In Vitro Fertilization, together with preimplantation genetic diagnosis.

Facing Low Oocyte Quality

Although there is no treatment to directly improve egg quality, techniques such as In Vitro Fertilization can maximize the chances of success. In cases where one's own eggs are not viable, egg donation becomes an effective alternative.
