INTRODUCTION: In assisted reproduction technologies (ART) the controlled ovarian stimulation (COS) therapy is the starting point from which a good oocytes retrieval depends. Treatment individualization is based on ovarian response prediction, which largely depends on a woman’s ovarian reserve. AMH and AFC are considered the most accurate and reliable markers of ovarian reserve.
EVIDENCE ACQUISITION: A literature search was carried out for studies that addressed the ability of AMH and AFC to predict poor and/or excessive ovarian response in IVF cycles.
EVIDENCE SYNTHESIS: According to the predicted response to ovarian stimulation (poor- normal- or high- response) is today possible not only to personalize pre-treatment counseling with the couple, but also to individualize the ovarian stimulation protocol, choosing among GnRH-agonists or antagonists for endogenous FSH suppression and formulating the FSH starting dose most adequate for the single patients.
CONCLUSIONS: In this review we discuss how to choose the best COS therapy for the single patient, on the basis of the markers-guided ovarian response prediction.
