Women with ovarian laziness can increase their chances of pregnancy with IVF treatment

Egg laziness is the most frequently detected hormonal disorder in women of reproductive age, and its incidence varies between 5-15%. Apart from genetic factors, conditions such as obesity and Type 2 diabetes due to insulin resistance may cause egg laziness. The vast majority of women with egg sloths face some problems in conceiving a child. To eliminate this problem, in addition to medical treatment, lifestyle changes such as weight loss, diet, and exercise are very important.


The occurrence of pregnancy is possible with healthy ovulation. Complaints in the form of irregular menstruation, lack of menstruation, or abnormal menstrual bleeding are usually among the symptoms that indicate a problem in ovulation. The egg cell, which continues its development in menstrual bleeding, cracks after a while and reaches the tubes in the uterus that go towards the ovaries. Here, fertilization can occur if it encounters the sperm, which is the male reproductive cell.

Male hormone levels are found to be high in women with egg laziness. For this reason, the body of these women goes out of the normal menstrual cycle and this may cause the pregnancy request to be unfulfilled. Egg laziness is a disorder caused by a combination of many factors. Some hereditary characteristics of people may be effective in the development of the disease. Apart from genetic factors, conditions such as obesity and Type 2 diabetes-related to insulin resistance may also play a role in the development of egg laziness. The most common symptoms that can be experienced in women with egg laziness are menstrual irregularity, abnormal menstrual bleeding, increased hair growth, acne development, weight gain, male pattern hair loss, regional darkening of the skin, and headache.


Egg laziness is a problem characterized by menstrual irregularity. Lifestyle changes such as weight loss, diet, and exercise are also very important for eliminating egg laziness. People who adopt a diet program rich in refined sugars will have a predisposition to insulin resistance, so care should be taken. It is recommended to consume foods with high fiber content instead of such products, to choose low-carbohydrate foods, and to fight insulin resistance.

In addition to nutritional factors, people with egg laziness are recommended to do daily physical activity. Regular exercise can reduce insulin resistance, lower blood sugar and reduce body weight. A 5-10% reduction in body weight can be effective in regulating the menstrual cycle and controlling the symptoms caused by egg laziness. Losing weight can also reduce the person’s insulin level, improve cholesterol level, and reduce susceptibility to diseases such as diabetes.


The vast majority of women with egg sloths face some problems in conceiving a child. At the same time, in case of egg laziness and getting pregnant, risks such as premature birth, miscarriage, high blood pressure, and high gestational diabetes may be encountered during pregnancy. In the face of these risks, egg development can be improved with assisted reproductive treatment methods. In vitro fertilization is an application that can fulfill pregnancy requests in women with ovarian instability.

Various studies have shown that pregnancy can be achieved with high success rates with in vitro fertilization method in women with egg instability. In this patient group, before the treatment with IVF, hormone levels are regulated by various drugs, and the body is prepared for pregnancy. The first step of the treatment approach in people with egg laziness and infertility complaints is drug therapy. In addition to medical treatment, a treatment plan suitable for the individual is created with various lifestyle factors to be applied. In cases unresponsive to drug therapy, surgical intervention on the ovaries, which is performed as a closed surgery, can be applied for the treatment of egg laziness.
