Hi doctor, I am 35 and have attempted IVF 4 times over the last 4 years. I have had embryos but back, but never a positive pregnancy. Doctors have mentioned we have "quality issues".

Prior to trying to conceive, a sertoli-leydig cell tumor was discovered on my right oveary and it resulted in a right side Salpingo-Oophorectomy. I know I had this tumor since adolesence.

It was thought I can't get pregnant naturally due to abdominal adhesions. However, is there a chance that my exposure to high levels of testorone for some many years (due to the tumor) has effected my egg quality permanently?

No. Resting eggs are not affected by testosterone.
