    Default Interesting article on preg.org

    Did anyone read this? http://www.pregnancy.org/article/you...-and-fertility

    The article talks about how blood types may affect your fertility and women with blood type O have lower and poorer egg quality. The study also showed that women with blood type O are twice as likely to have elevated FSH.

    I find this so interesting. I went and checked on my donor card and I'm blood type O+. I think I may have finally found the reason for my infertility.

    Anyone else out there who has DOR or high FSH, do you know what your blood type is?

    Interesting.....I am O+ also. Although I haven't officially been diagnosed with DOR, AMH is lower than normal for my age. My last FSH on day 3 was 8, which I think is in range? Would be interesting if they did a full study on this.

    It is interesting and coincidental. I did figure out that the most common blood type is O, so that doesn't help the case. If it was a rarer blood type, then I could see it more.
