ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND: To study the correlation of hormonal and sonographic markers of ovarian reserve in Indian woman with primary infertility. METHOD: Fifty women with primary infertility of age >35 years having regular monthly cycles and no history of ovarian surgery were included in this descriptive study conducted from December 2010 until July 2011 in the Mahila Chikitsalaya, Sawai Man Singh Medical College & Hospital, India. A transvaginal ultrasound examination and blood tests were carried out between the third and fifth day of their menstrual cycle (follicular phase). The ovarian volume was measured and total antral follicles (AFC) were counted. Hormonal markers such as Follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) and Anti mullerian hormone (AMH) were measured. RESULTS: There is highly significant negative correlation between s.FSH and ovarian volume &; s.FSH and AFC.There is highly significant positive correlation between s.AMH and ovarian volume &; s.AMH and AFC. CONCLUSION: With increasing age (>35yrs) hormonal markers of ovarian reserve i.e., s.FSH increases and AMH decreases while sonographic markers of ovarian reserve i.e., AFC and ovarian volume decreases thus decreasing the chances of conception. Ultrasonography and hormonal tests are important tools for the prediction of ovarian reserve in cases of infertility. Knowing the ovarian reserve in case of primary infertility we can predict the ovarian response to stimulation with ovulation induction drugs in normal and IVF cycles.
