FSH Levels

Postby joy42 » Mon Nov 16, 2009 7:37 am

Has anybody over 40 had a successful pregnancy with their own eggs with FSH levels at 15? I just spoke to my doctor and he told me these were the test results and that I had to go on highest medication for getting pregnant with my own eggs. He said the chances were 10 - 20%. Does anyone have any experiences to share particularly with regards to the medications?
thanks,

Hi Ladies,

I was wondering if anyone has gotten a BFP with an elevated FSH? If so, how? I have recently been diagnosed with a Diminshed Ovarian Reserve. Please help? I am only 29

Pregnancies happen in that group, just not as readily as in younger patients with lower FSH.

hi, I had high fsh 15 and over. I got pregnant naurally one month after failed ivf last november. I turned 42 2 months after my baby was born. she is almost 5 months old now. Even though ivf failed, i think the meds kick started things in my body. one re even told me i would never have a baby with my own eggs. sometimes miracles happen. dont give up and dont always listen to doctors.

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 woman. I was devastated. I saw another RE who agreed with the first but seemed nicer and was willing to work with me. He wanted to do IVF as a first step but ultimately we decided we would try IUI with COH. This would also let us know if I would respond well to IVF as the drugs and treatment were going to be the same. He first wanted to check my progesterone at CD 20 and repeat the 3 days FSH. That meant I would not start any meds or do IUI until February or more likely, March. Well, during all of this I was on the internet and reading books, seeking out others with high FSH and Low AMH that went on to have a biological child. I started to believe that my chances were just as good naturally as they were with ART. I decided I would try naturally during any non IUI cycles. Well low and behold, I got a BFP the very first time I TTC naturally and I got it less than 30 days after those FSH and AMH results and the donor egg speech were given to me. Today I am 6w3d pregnant. My bHCG's have been great. I have my first U/S on Monday. I cannot wait. I am somewhat afraid (because of the outlook I was given) but very hopeful.
