  3. Labs
    1. Anti-Mullerian Hormone (AMH)
      1. Stable marker of ovarian reserve (gradually declines from age 25 to Menopause)
      2. AMH <1.0 suggests decreased ovarian reserve
    2. Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH)
      1. Obtain on day 3 of cycle
      2. FSH >10 IU/L suggest decreased ovarian reserve (but poor reliability due to variable levels)
    3. Estradiol (E2)
      1. Obtain on day 3 of cycle
      2. Estradiol decreased in decreased ovarian reserve
  4. Imaging
    1. Pelvic Ultrasound
