Low egg count or “diminished ovarian reserve” is indicated by high FSH levels common to women with O blood type. In contrast women with blood type A normally show lesser FSH levels and produce more eggs of better quality.
FSH stimulates ovarian follicles leading to production of eggs. As women grow older, the hormone levels increase in the body to sustain production of eggs. However, the raised FSH level of women with O blood type is……
