    Default Just starting

    So relived to find this thread regarding high AMH. I'm 28 and known I've had pcos for sound 12 years, but this week was told my case is severe. My AMH came back at 163. The specialist has started me off on 50mg Clomid but reading other stories it doesn't seem to do the job. The fear of never having a baby is petrifying me...I've been in tears and I can't think of anything else. I dnt want to start taking the tablets why I'm so stressed ! I'm not feeling very hopeful xx

    Hi there, just popping in to give you some reassurance. A high AMH is can actually be a good thing for fertility as it's means you have a high egg reserve. As long as you can get your body ovulating regularly you have a very good chance of getting pregnant with pcos. Do you know if you ovulate regularly? I think there is a lot of fear that Pcos means no kids and it definitely does not. Clomid is a good start and sometimes joining it with metformin can be good too. Happy for you to PM me, I've had 2 kids and managed my pcos for many years :-)
    ETA: the first was conceived naturally and the second was ivf but for reasons not related to pcos :-)

    +1 for reassurance- I have PCOS and an insane AMH of over 500 (not not a typo). 50 mg clomid did nothing for me but got good results on 100 and 125. Currently 27 weeks with my first and all going well. Take heart! Just give it a go and you might be pleasantly surprised. First cycle is just to establish a baseline and then they can up your dose (and even within the same cycle- eg I took 50 with no reaction then upped straightaway to 100 in the same cycle resulting in at least 1 good follie) Good luck

    @Louloops - Your high amh and pcos definately doesn't mean you won't have children. Some ladies with pcos and high amh are easily treated I have a friend who lost a little weight and ovulated naturally. She has conceived two children naturally and her first born was a clomid baby so dont give up hope. Yes some cases are a little more complicated and will need more intivention but they will start slowly and gradually crank it up until the find the right treatment for you. Try and stay positive and take one step at a time, try and find a clomid or pcos thread to chat with women who are going through similar treatments to yourself its goid to chat on here and also support others, helps you to feel less lonely x

    Get going Hun on the clomid, it's not the end of the world if the 50mg doesn't work, there's a whole lot of other stuff to try, including upping the dose and alternate drugs etc. I often went 8 months or so with no period. Hope you don't mind me asking but are you overweight? I found that losing weight and vigorous exercise (Bootcamp etc) really helped to regulate my cycles too.

    @Louloops - Glad to hear reading along with the threads is helping. My friend had regular periods but didnt always ovulate where as I don't have a natural period at all so obviously no ovulation so fsh injections were the way to go with me to conceive DD, this time around we have ramped things up and are trying IVF. The thing is every case is different, you should definitely start with the clonid as a first step treatment and if that doesn't work it isn't the end of the world there are more steps.
