    Default Low amh, im sick of getting negative responses, i dont get why its so bad,????????

    Im so confused, as u can see from my signature i have a low amh and got a BFN last friday, cant stand clininc i was at so am changing. Clinic i was with just called to apologise for there crappy treatment and to wish me luck but still managed to upset me.

    I honestly feel like either they are not telling me something or once again trying to scare me, i still dont get the low amh, yes i dont have as many eggs but im 27, ovulate every month but it seems i cant find a FS who is positive about me getting UPT. i just want to be told, i have a good chance eventually( i know it might take time) but ladies am i asking to much or is there is good chance this wont happen??????

    My eggs looked good i only got 5 but they were mature and good size, all made it to next day but only one fertilised and the embie was put back in on day 3 but didnt attatch at all.

    When so many people at IVFA sound very hesitant to tell me its possible, starts to make me wonder if it is, i feel like i have a great chance, why dont they make me feel at ease about it.

    Can anyone give me good stories or tell me if they get the same vibe or am i just being ridiculous/emotional??????

    Hi Hubba,

    I'm sorry to hear you are having such a hard time. I have a very very low AMH 1.1. I am with Melbourne IVF (from today, Just started) and my Dr seemed more interested in my FSH than the AMH. Might be worth changing clinics and getting a new more positive specialist.

    Sorry I can't be of more assistance but good luck.

    hi

    yes u do have a good chance still i believe. im in sydney, also got a very bad vibe from my fs at that clinic when i failed to produce the number of eggs he thought was "good" , made me feel so down about my chances....so i changed clinics and never looked back. my amh was 4.0 in 2009, lower this time.

    Hi I am a low AMHer 2.5 and have had two ivf attempts. The first one was cancelled due to poor response and my fsh injections upped from 300iu to 450 iu. On our second attempt I got a BFP and we got to 12 weeks only to be told our baby had a giant omphalocele, basically a massive hernia. We had to have a CVS performed but the genetic tests all came back clear. We had to wait until the 16 week scan to find out just how bad it was... It was bad. We were told there was no hope, too many issues with spine, heart, abdominal wall, the list goes on. So then I had to wait 10 more days to have a termination. It was hell! Our FS has told us we need to wait 3 months before we can try again and not to be too upset if I don't respond as well as I did as she didn't expect me to respond that well in the first place (we got 5 eggs, icsi on 3, 2 fertilized, both put back, one stuck) but she said we'll keep trying until we get a BFP again (yeah how much is that gonna cost us!) I am 33 and my AMH is lower than yours, so you still have a good chance. The Drs just try and cover themselves by being under positive so that you can't come back and say they promised you a baby, as no one ever knows for sure if ivf will work, which is the totally sucky bit! I'm sending you good vibes from Perth x

    Don't give up hubba, get other opinions if you need. As Lily said have they checked your FSH/ oestrogen levels on day 2 - might give you more info.
    This bub (due yesterday) was conceived with AMH of 2.7 and 37y.o eggs.
    Hang in there & good luck

    Hi Hubba

    I wouldnt get disheartened if I was you, as you know you are still young. My friend is 38 and just got a AMH reading of 2.2. GP told her to look into freezing her eggs immediately. She went to see a FS and he told them what are you even doing here? Come back in six months if you havent conceived.

    Hope this helps

    Hi Hubba! I'm 28 and just found out I have a AMH of 1.1!!! Freaking out a bit! My FS said the best thing I am doing is doing IVF now! I'm only on my first cycle and have EPU on Monday.
    Try a different FS, one that makes u feel comfortable!! Don't look online too much, the info is totally confusing!!

    All the best xxx


    Hopeful!! Xx

    Hubba to you. I am 10 years older than you but also have low AMH I scored 1. I was told by my FS that it is still a fairly new test and she did focus on my FSH when I was jabbing. I think the other ladies are right about being with a clinic/FS that you feel comfortable with as this process is hard enough if you don't feel supported. Sending lots of love and hope you find an FS who can give you the answers you need soon.

    Thanx so much ladies, i have def changed doctors, im gonna try not to focus on all the negatives they get, i suppose i have to stop looking to them for answers and just focus on the facts that i know.

    I have had my fsh levels checked and they are fine, i just cant believe how many conflicting things u hear, u ladies are honestly the best i cant even describe how much use put my mind at ease.

    Tiggasam- i am astounded thats what they told your friend, makes me feel heaps better.

    Nikki Perth- thats exactly what they do, they dont wanna get your hopes up, i sought of feel i would rather them be positive, even if it does give me false hope, im not an idiot, i still am realistic and understand know one can give me a direct answer. Sorry for what u have been through, i wish u all the best of luck.

    Thankyou for all taking the time, as we know they are the doctors but i think im gonna try and not take to heart what they are telling me. Love use to all keep updating on the thread how u r going, its good to hear from woman that are in the same boat.

    Hi Hubba,

    I only in my first cycle but when my FS first saw my AMH he told me it was "significant (it's 8 and I'm only 24). In saying that today had my first EPU and got 26 eggs. I'm yet to see how many fertilize but I thought I was doomed to ever get many follies and now I'm facing the battle of not getting oHSS something they never thought I'd face.

    From my understanding AMH was researched in a study and typically they found those with higher numbers got more eggs than those with lower so it's a guide to what to expect rather than a rule.

    Wishing you all the best xx
