I am new here and thought I would introduce myself as I am starting IVF for the 1st time this month at Westmead. My name is Claire, I have been in Australia 8 months after emigrating from the UK with my husband. When we met 5 years ago my DH told me had had a vastectomy ( DH has 3 boys with ex wife) I wanted children and so did he with me so he had it reversed! For 2 and a half years we have always thought the problem lay with DH, his sperm results used to come back with poor forward progression and it wasn't until we came here to Australia that test's were run on me 2 and it turns out my AMH level is 1.8!! I saw Dr Howard smith who said lets get the ball rolling now as time is not on my side, I am 37, DH is 45! I came out of his office totally devastated and came home to research everything I could find on amh levels! To top it off it was never Chris's sperm that was the problem, the dr said his sperm count etc was above average!! So that is a positive for us after years of worrying!! I am trying to stay positive! I am on day 6 of my pill and have my nurse's interview on the 17th April for the syneral and a week after that for the injections! So I hope I can share my journey with you ladies, so we can help each other through this.
Thanks for listening
