My husband and I have had a difficult time conceiving baby #2. We recently met with an RE who was fantastic from the beginning. We were told to call back and set up a sonohystogram for some time between day 6-11 of my cycle. The first thought our doctor had was that there may still be some tissue in my uterus from my previous miscarriage 1 year ago. We found out that my uterus and fallopian tubes are healthy and look great. The doctor then checked my ovaries and was a bit concerned because he said that they were very small. I am 27 years old and he could only see 3 good eggs in my left ovary and 2 in my right. He said this was very low, but since it was day 8 the eggs were a bit large and could be blocking his view of others possibly. I guess it's best to check on day 3 of a woman's cycle for that. He asked me if I had been tested for Polycystic Ovary Syndrome which I have not yet, but I'm wondering what could be the reasons for having small ovaries. We're going to meet with our regular RE in 3 days, but it is really going to bother me because I am extremely confused. I was not prepared for this. I did have a blood test done to check my hormones and we should hear about that at our next appointment. My main question is why at 27 years of age would my ovaries be small? What are some reasons for having small ovaries? I hope my question makes sense and I would appreciate any feedback.
