Nowadays more and more couples are delaying childbirth. As the age of the couples advances, their chances of achieving pregnancy decrease. This is due to the natural process of ageing of gonads. During counselling and treatment of infertile couples, clinicians are often faced with questions like what is the chance of conception. Hence there is need to test for functional ovarian reserve. An ideal ovarian reserve test is affordable, convenient, reproducible and sensitive. Various clinical and biochemical markers have been used to predict the same. These tests help to predict the poor response or hyper response to ovarian stimulation and help to formulate the treatment plans in infertile couple. They however cannot predict future fertility or occurrence of pregnancy.
