    Default Low amh

    Hi

    I just got told the bad news on Monday that my amh is 1.


    It looks like one ovary isn't working (I had a large cyst removed). But doctor didn't confirm that. That's what i suspect.


    He wants me to keep trying for another six months and then try Ivf. He said Ivf will be hard for me because I only have a few eggs. The other option is donor eggs.


    I am really lucky as I have one beautiful baby, just scared as I'm 39 maybe this is the only baby I will have.


    My sister will donate her eggs but she is 35 in a months time and lives in the uk. The other is 26 and will think about it.


    Any body have good stories with an amh that low?

    Also we are moving to Canberra from Sydney in April so if I do Ivf it will be a Canberra clinic. My doctor has recommended bronwyn Devine. Has anyone had a good experience with her or should I stick with my Sydney doctor. He is dr robert Lahoud, but it would mean traveling for treatment, and I'm not sure that is possible.

    Sorry you got bad news
    My AMH is only 4 and we have just fallen Pg with our first. Needed three shots at IUI and metformin but it did work.
    Hang in there.

    Not yet. The last FS said he would only do iui but we moved before we had a chance to start.

    Our FS said ivf was the next step if our last iui had been unsuccessful. She talked about tailoring the drugs to take the low amh into account and was cautiously optimistic about it.
    Maybe get a second opn about ivf for you?

    Hi Luckyme1

    I've had my AMH tested twice ~ first time was 4.9 and second time 5.4. FS told us to IVF ASAP after the first result as 4.9 is considered quite low for my age of 31. BUT we went on to get 19 eggs at pick up (low AMHers I believe never get that many) so I asked for AMH to be tested again, 5.4 still considered low so off we went to IVF again this time 24 eggs at pick up! Obviously the AMH results are correct as I've had the test done twice but it just seems odd that I'm producing so many eggs...

    Sorry what a round about way of saying maybe the AMH test is too new to take as gospel? But in my honest opinion I think at your age I would give IVF a go, especially with your AMH level, but thats just me...

    It hasn't ended in a BFP for us but I believe I have other issues anyway...

    When my AMH was tested before my Ds was born it was five, but I got pregnant the next month. I'm hoping that I can still get preggers with a low AMH, but we will have to see.

    Hi I had mine tested a few weeks ago and was told it was very low for my age (31) i got 8.8 just wondering what is a normal score? He told me that there wasnt much hope of falling with clomid and would only give me one cycle on it and then would have to look into IVF, just a bit confused

    thanks
    Tanya
