Introduction: In some young female candidates of assisted reproductive technology (ART), ovarian response to simulative treatments is less than what is expected. More precise assessment of oocyte quality and quantity through studying ovarian dimensions can be useful for determining the dose of ovarian stimulant drugs. The aim of the present study is to determine the association between ovarian dimensions and ovarian reserve (OR) indices. Materials and Methods: In this cross-sectional study, 85 infertile women were studied. In early follicular phase, ovarian diameters (including length and width of the ovaries) were measured using transvaginal ultrasonography. Mean ovarian diameters (MOD) were calculated according to average length and width of the ovaries. A serum sample was taken from all patients to measure the level of FSH and oestradiol as OR indices. Results: The results of univariate analysis showed that FSH and oestradiol had a negative significant association with width, length and MOD (p<0.01). The results of multivariate regression analysis showed that FSH and oestradiol had a negative significant association with width (βFSH= -0.59, p=0.001 and (βoestradiol= -0.019, p=0.029) and MOD (FSH= -0.52, p=0.003 and βoestradiol= -0.021, p=0.017) and had a borderline negative significant correlation with ovarian length (βFSH= -0.49, p=0.077 and βoestradiol= 0.022, p=0.08) Conclusion: The results of this study revealed that despite a moderate correlation, ovarian diameters could be an applicable index for predicting OR. Using this method along with other methods may be useful in treatment with ovarian stimulants.
