Low ovarian reserve

I’m 41 and had a blood test to check my egg reserve. Was told it’s 2% and have a reverted womb. I’ve been trying for a baby for 12 months, is there any chance I can fall pregnant with an egg reserve as low as mine?

Yes, you do have a chance to conceive naturally but the chance is very low. After 12 months of trying I would urge IVF treatment. Through using mild, modified natural cycle, quite reasonable pregnancy rates can be achieved even with low egg reserve.
