Learn your egg retrieval score from the Ovarian Assessment Report
If you’re a woman of childbearing age, there’s one number you should know. No, it’s not the phone number for Texas Fertility Center; although that’s probably a good one to have in your phone. It’s your egg retrieval score (ERS). The Ovarian Assessment Report can give you this number and critical information about your fertility that our Austin fertility center can use to help you start a family.
The Ovarian Assessment Report is the most accurate way to assess your egg supply
Our Austin fertility center team often recommends the Ovarian Assessment Report because it’s the best way to learn detailed information about a woman’s fertility. This is why our physicians suggest ovarian testing even if you’re not struggling with infertility.
There are several benefits to the report that TFC provides.
- Better predictive power than other reproductive markers (AMH or FSH) alone.
- Predicts how you will respond to ovarian stimulation.
- Identifies the ERS of an egg donor candidate.
The report combines age and hormone levels to determine your ERS
On the third day of your menstrual cycle, our Austin fertility center staff will give you a kit and send you to our partner lab CPL, for a blood draw. The blood is packaged and sent off to our reference lab for analysis. The Ovarian Assessment Report only requires one blood sample, but this single sample provides a wealth of information.
The report takes your age and combines it with blood levels of reproductive hormones, including AMH and FSH, to arrive at your ERS. This number measures your egg supply, and it can range from 1 to 20.
- 1 to 5 means that your egg supply is reduced.
- 6 to 10 indicates that your egg supply is fair.
- 11 to 15 suggests that your egg supply is good.
- 16 to 20 means that your egg supply is excellent.
