A recent Women's Health article featured rise of ovarian reserve testing. The test is inexpensive, easy to undergo and has provided insight for many women about the future quantity of eggs. But the test may not be for every woman says Dr. Louis Weckstein, medical director at the Reproductive Science Center in California, in the article.
The Eeva test, shown in the video, uses a computer algorithm and tiny cameras to detect the rate of embryonic cell division. The test then rates each embryo's chance as high or low. This allows doctors to only implant the embryos with the highest chances of implanting and developing into a baby, thus reducing the chances of a high risk multiples pregnancy and increasing the chance of a women becoming pregnant with a single embryo transfer.
