    Thanks Bella!

    I have always ovulated no worries and if i wasn't doing IVF i would be due this week but the synarel delayed AF a week. So a lil worried the drugs are not working but i think they are - i've had twinges on both sides where my ovaries are.

    Just seems like forever

    Hey everyone,

    i hope everyone is doing ok and getting through teir TWW's.
    My Husand and i will be starting our first round in about Nov / Dec and im curious to know how much all of the hormones and injections are going to cost per cycle? the doc has put me on clomid again for the next few months, which i hate because it just puffs me up something crazy! and makes me really crabby haha.

    Anyway, i really hope everything is going smoothly for you all, love seeing the updates and news.

    HELP!!! (
    hi ladies, I've been watching this thread for months now and after 9 years of TTC and 2 years on the IVF waiting list I've made it to my first cycle.

    However I've been stimming for 13 days and I have 14 follies all sized between 7mm and 9mm RPA have decided to keep me going as everything is growing just EXTREMELY slowly.

    Some reassurance right now would be really comforting

    Hi girls,

    i hope you are all doing well and there have been some BFP's since my last visit?!
    just had a phone call from the Doc who has told me my AMH level is quite low at 13.9 - (I think the normal range is between 14 and 28??) and i am only 27! i am at work at the moment but i want to just cry...
    He made things worse by asking me when my mum went through menopause and tellingme im lucky i came in when i did..
    Can anyone tell me if they have had the same thing and what kind of cycle they were put on for their IVF treatment?
    I am also curious to know what my reproductive age is based on my ovarian reserve?? i have been looking and looking on the net but cant find any info on it
    anyway, im due to start my first round of IVF next month and i was in good spirits before the phone call but now im not so sure what we could be dealing with in the future!

    baby dust to all

    Hi Bber1 - don't worry about AMH levels - i'm 31 and 9.5 - last cycle (my first) i was overstimulated! I have 20 plus eggs - estrogen went thru the roof as a result of too many eggs and i was only on a 150 dose of gonal f! So AMH does not mean anything.

    When i was first told i had low amh i read every article on the net i think lol but don't bother - everyone is different and a low amh does not give an indication to the quality of the eggs you produce - you may only have a few eggs but all it takes is one goodie to get pregnant

    Remember the first ivf cycle is a test drive - see how you react - your doc might start you on a slightly higher dose than standard because of ur low amh.
    I recommend taking royal jelly and co-enzyme q10 to improve ya egg quality - but check with your FS first! Some dont like it but others dont mind. Some other IVF ladies take DHEA too but i'm not atm.

    I'm in the same boat as you, my mother had me at 21 the my sister and brother a shirt time later. She went through menopause at 37. Her sister the same. My Husband and I had ttc for over a year and half and were only told the news about a month ago that we need to go through IVF. Im 30 hubby 33.I was also at work , I went to the loo had my cry then continued on working even though I wanted to go home very bad I knew there was no point curling into a ball in bed and being depressed as it wouldnt help the situation. It did take me a few weeks to get over the news though now I am looking forward to moving in and beginning the first cycle of IVF which hopefully is next month with some luck. Sorry can't held with your other questions as my appointment isn't for two weeks.

    hi clucky14 & bber1,

    good luck with your upcoming cycles!

    i am not sure if your doctors specialise in low ovarian reserve, but can i suggest you speak to them about DHEA?

    here's my story:

    my dh & i were ttc for about 1.5yrs when i found out that my amh levels vere very low (less than 1) & i was only 32. my sister had her 2 kids in early 20s & my mum had my sister at 21 & then me at 30. i really wasn't expecting this so was pretty sad (still am actually).

    we did 3 cycles with a doctor who wasn't an expert in low ovarian reserves and unfortunatelly he was just following a text book, so we wasted our time and money. he just didn't know enough and basically said that it wasn't a big deal and we should just keep trying - i was only getting 1-2 eggs at pick up.

    i then found a doctor who specialises in this and he put me onto DHEA. it is not a very common treatment, but many doctors who specialise in low reserves use it & there have been a few studies done that show it's effect. (i have also spoken to a dr in UK & USA and they both said that that avenue is great for females with low reserves). however, if your doctor gives a script for it, you need to get it from a special farmacy as it needs to be the right composition & most pharmacies don't do it right. im in melbourne and there's only 1 pharmacy that does it correctly! also, you need to be on it for 3 months before it takes effect.

    onfortunately dhea didn't work for me. i did 2 more cycles and was then told that unfortunately my amh is just too low and our chances are slim to none so we were advised to get a donor egg. im grateful for my dr's honesty. not many would turn away a couple who is willing to try and try. i really think that if my original dr put me onto dhea to start off with, my results would be different.

    we couldn't get a donor in aust as there is no registry & we didn't know anyone whos willing to donate so my dr recommended a clinic overseas - so thats where we are at the moment & fingers crossed it works!

    im not sharing my story to scare anyone but just to show that there's always something else that we can do & that we shouldn't work ourselves up, but try to stay calm. i know, i know, easier said than done, but we should try!

    I have low ovarian reserve too, 5.5 (I'm 33). My Dr told me that DHEA is more for egg quality than quantity, I asked if I should be on it and he said "you don't want me to tell you to take it" (ie if he's telling me to take it he's concerned about egg quality -- yet to do first cycle so don't know if that will be the case).
