Re: FSH levels

Did they not test your FSH prior to the first IVF? FSH can change from month to month, but they say you're only as good as your highest FSH. If they believe your high FSH is the cause of previous difficulties and failures, I wouldn't rush the next IVF. Do some research on how to lower your FSH (thou...

Re: First time single girl

I think a visit with the RE and the results of various tests which are pretty routine as you go down this path will help you decide if you want to try IUI or jump straight to IVF. Also, there's the cost to consider. My second RE thought jumping straight to IVF was the way to go but I was planning on...

Re: High FSH and/or Low AMH anyone?

Hi VCR, Guess what! I have a perfect 4 month old son! He was conceived over last New Years Eve weekend and born late September. I had a known donor lined up. After reading the book "Inconceivable" about a woman's fight against high FSH and many other findings on the Internet, I figured my chances we...

Re: First time single girl

One would think "fresh" sperm is best, but hey, there are A LOT of women that are conceiving with frozen / thawed sperm. And there are plenty that do it with donor sperm, with and without meds. I know my story sounds short and sweet but there was a lot more to it. I've known my donor for several yea...

Re: First time single girl

OH...there's a group know as Choice Moms. There's a website and a book which has a lot of helpful information whether you're in the Thinking, Trying, Becoming, or Being phase of single motherhood. Sorry, I don't know the web address, but if you google Choice Moms and Mikki Morrsette (sp?) - book aut...

Re: First time single girl

WOW! Would you believe I'm currently sitting here with a 4-month old boy! I saw a different RE shortly after my high FSH / Low AMH results and would have worked with him had I not conceived with a known donor over New Years! Per my cycles, I assumed I would be ovulatating and thought WHY NOT TRY? So...

Well, I am 7w1d today. I had my first ultrasound on Monday at 6w5d. Everything looked good. Little bean was actually measuring at 7w1d and had a heart beat of 146 bpm. My next appt. is March 2nd. My symptons have been very slight. A little breast tenderness, a little constipation, and dry mouth. Abs...

I am 38 years old. In December I got my FSH results of 17.3 with an AMH of 0.2 to boot. I was told my chances of having a biological child were less than 1% even with the most aggressive treatment and IVF. I was given the donor egg speech. And this was all before I even started TTC as I am a single ...

update, Change of events....

It's me again. Less than a month after high FSH, low AMH results and the donor egg speech, I am 10 DPO with a beta HCG of 56. Seems I've managed to get myself pregnant, naturally on my very first attempt. I am still working with an RE as I was going to move forward with COH in February or March. I h...

Change of Events!!!

Almost hate to post this early but... 28 days after getting my FSH results, AMH results, and the donor egg speech...I have a postive beta HCG at 10 days BPO. Just four days ago I had blood drawn for progesterone because the RE suspected I was not even ovulating despite my very regular periods and de...

Thanks Ghost. I should have asked the doctor this, but I went I into shock during the donor egg speech. Why are the odds so slim? Isn't the AMH an indication of quantity? And I have read where FSH is also. Is that true? And is there an automatic assumption that quality may be low just because of age...

I am 38, single, and decided 2010 was my year. I went to a RE in late November. I was shocked to hear him say donor eggs is the way for me to go. I have a high FSH (17.3) and low AMH (0.2). I didn't even know what all of this was before. I had not been trying to get pregnant so I had no reason to th...

High FSH and/or Low AMH anyone?

I am 38, single, and decided to become a single mom. I thought coming to that decision would be the hardest part. I am "younger than my years" and "healthier than a horse" according to my regular doctor. I have never tried to get pregnant so I went into my followup appt with the RE anxious to hear n...

High FSH, Low AMH - question for Ghost and all

I am new to the board and was advised to post my question here for more responses. I have not been trying to get pregnant before now. I went to an RE because I decided I would be a single mom via donor sperm. So I go in not knowing I have any problems, other than the fact that I am 38 years old and ...
