    Firstly though I have to go and have a lap done to see if either of my tubes are blocked or if I have any endo...

    Given all this info has been hard to take. But then to be told that we do not have any time to waste, and that it is more than likely that I will go through Menopause between the ages of 35 - 40 has been heart breaking!

    I hope to hear some good news from someone my age or not who has had success.
    Hi Mysticme,

    I too am interested as always to hear success stories!

    My AMH has dropped to 2.7 and I got 12 eggs this cycle - the most ever! (admittedly not all of them are top notch quality as only 4 fertilised) but hey!
    Other cycles have varied with 8,7, 5, 3 eggs - it can vary each month.


    I think your FS has made a big call if based on your AMH alone is ruling your chances out. Have you had CD2 FSH and oestrogen levels done too? Even then the only way to tell is by doing a cycle and seeing how someone responds and you are young so the quality is more likely to be good.

    There are things that can be tried like DHEA and growth hormone too.

    I agree with jfblady and mum4nay get a 2nd opinion with someone proactive and familiar with dealing with this!

    Good luck

    Ladies,

    Here's a whole thread on miracle stories with low AMH & high FSH from the UK
    (AMH over there is sometimes referred to in different units ng/ml and you have to times it by 7.14 to convert to aussie pmol):

    http://www.fertilityfriends.co.uk/fo...topic=174687.0

    It does happen and hopefully to all of us too

    Hello,
    I am 43 and have AMH of less then 1 and had a BFP earlier this year after my first transfer (on my third cycle). Unfortunately the pregnancy was not viable though.
    I hope my story gives some hope, it is possible.

    He is very proactive and has given us all the info he can.
    I have a few things holding me back from going else where.
    1) I was booked in to Hollywood but received such astonishingly poor treatment from their councillor due to the fact I am over weight.
    2) I am going to FN because they will actually treat larger people.
    3) my DH only got 7% normal sperm!
    4) we have been TTC for 5 years with secondary infertility.
    Taking all of this into consideration, he must have his reasons for advising us to not have IVF. I do trust him and don't feel the need to get a second opinion. After 5 years, this is about the 100th opinion and I just want some answers.
    Thank you everyone for your stories and information. Makes me feel a little less alone.

    Mysticme,

    My reply to you was based on AMH being the sole issue, i was not aware of all the other challenges you are facing - sorry i couldn't see your background info / signature - maybe it was in a previous post?? and i didn't read back far enough!. It would be strange to not give it a go if AMH was the sole issue.

    As long as you and DH are happy thats all that matters, i wish you all the luck

    No! It was my fault. I posted with only part of the story. It has been a hard day!
    I really do thank you and everyone else for the info. It does help.

    hi guys

    I have a amh level less than 1 and was told my chances of conceiving was less than 10%. My third IVF cycle has just given me a bfp with great numbers...hooray. I changed FS on this third attempt and used DHEA only for a month before cycling and my quality improved hugely. I still only managed to get a small number of eggs but it is quality not quantity so dont give up hope just because the chances look slim on paper

    Wow Liney thats awesome.
    Im hoping for a Wazza miracle as well when i cycle in Aug 2011.
    I think Wazza said he would give me a very high dose of puregon for the 1st 2 or 3 days then drop it down a bit for the following days.
    My AMH is 3.1 and i have been on the DHEA since Oct 2010.
    Congrats on your BFP i bet you are over the moon.
    Hope you not feeling too sick.
    all the best

    Hi mel

    When I cycled I was on puregon 900 for two shots then dropped to 750 for the rest. You feel abit like you rattle with all the drugs that wazza makes you use and it doesnt stop once pregnant either but when it works who cares.

    Lucky feeling no reall sickness yet just a bit queasy if I dont eat often enough and mainly at night but I can handle that as well.

    Good luck for your cycle in August. Wazza is a real character especially when it comes to egg transfer day.

    Liney
