Will I lose my eggs faster after undergoing IVF treatment and retrieving so many eggs?

Absolutely no. In normal circumstances i.e., no IVF-related stimulation, only one follicle is stimulated by the FSH hormone secreted from the pituitary gland and the rest of your ovarian reserve will be diminished every month. Using stimulating medications will allow several follicles to grow and being retrieved rather than being diminished. In fact, the use of stimulating medications will Not reduce the ovarian reserve (the total number of eggs you have). IVF treatment also does NOT affect the age when a woman will reach menopause.
