It is difficult to advise you without more details of your medical history.  A low egg count and low sperm count can be treated using IVF and ICSI.  We have special protocols for patients with low egg reserve and the ICSI technique will aid fertilisation of the egg with the sperm.  At 37 years old if you have an embryo transferred you have a good chance of conceiving.  I would suggest you have an appointment with one of our Doctors and they will discuss your options with you.
