Abstract  
Purpose: To determine if blood type A protects against developing diminished oocyte reserve. Materials and Methods: Retrospective evaluation of incidence of blood type A (or AB) in women with normal oocyte reserve (day 3 serum follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) ≤ 11 mIU/ml) vs. diminished oocyte reserve (FSH ≥ 18 mIU/ml). Results: Five hundred forty-seven of 1,232 (44.4%) women with normal reserve had blood type A or AB vs. 33.8% (44/130) with diminished oocyte reserve (p= 0.027, chi-square). Conclusions: Lack of blood type A or AB may link to some other gene that may be responsible for premature depletion of oocytes.
Key words:  Blood type      Diminished oocyte reserve
