Was told by my doctor that my only option was Donor Egg, I had a laparoscopy done for right ovarian cyst in July, she never put me on meds afterwards, instead waiting nearly 7 months to check my FSH level which was 24.4 with a very low AMH and than says IVF is off the table for you and goes on to discuss Donor Eggs. Talk about cold hearted! I went for a second opinion with Dr. Zhang of New Hope Feritlity, he says I still have a chance, only had 2 follicles measure 4mm on day 3 of my period. Have an appointment tomorrow I guess to see if the follicles are growing.
Has anyone had any success with all my problems?? Endometriosis, Low Ovarian Reserve, High FSH, Low AMH levels??
Is 4mm a normal size for a follicle on day 3 of cycle with no meds?

Hi Angeles. I hope to find you to the best of your health. It seems like your situation is a bit confusing. One doctor said that you are good to go. On the other hand, the other doctor said that you have no option other than donor eggs. You need to consult another doctor to clear the misunderstanding. After that, decide what should be the next step.

I'm not familiar with this situation. However, I strongly believe in seeking a second opinion and advise the same to everyone. These matters are very sensitive and we should not just get hopeless by listening to one doctor's opinion. It's not always that those who can't tell you something are wrong. There are cases where every doc has a different way to look at things.
