    Congrats MapleFern

    I love to hear success stories :-)

    Sorry you're having such a hard time Nat256. I hope things improve at work for you and that you can embark on IVF with some excitement about what could happen for you and DH!

    AFM...I got AMH BT results today and they are remarkably high which I'm thrilled about, but at the same time a bit confused. It suggests that I might have PCOS, but I don't have any of the symptoms and when I had an ultrasound for fibroids there were no cysts at all. Any thoughts anyone??

    On 8dpo today and hoping for a fluke BFP, otherwise we're onto IVF prob in November.

    I think there are two types of polycystic ovaries. But I also thought there were multiple cysts on your ovaries in both types but I am no expert

    I'm sorry work is getting you down, Nat. I hope it improves pronto - you don't need that kind of stress. I'm hapy to hear your appointment is coming up soon. I can imagine it must be slightly scary and overwhelming - in fact, that seems to be the norm in this whole TTC caper - it's one long stress-fest. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you that it will be a short and successful experience.

    MrsErinR, can I ask - do you have to get the AMH test done on a specific day? My acupuncturist has given me a blood test form for a host of tests to get done on CD3 (Saturday). It's for almost everything under the sun (FSH, TSH, progesterone, Vit D, calcium, and a few more....) but not AMH. So, I'm seriously considering just adding it on to the list. (What's one more vial of blood when they're already drawing a bucketload?) Is it expensive to have the test done privately?

    MrsErinR when I went to my specialist for my thyroid he said the I had polycystic ovaries too but I didn't really have any symtoms either. As Wunsi said there are different types of polycystic ovaries but I'm no expert either.

    No, the AMH can be done on any cycle day. Apparently it doesn't fluctuate. There's a fair bit of info about it online. I got a referral from GP but it is not covered by Medicare and so it cost me about $60. Also, it took 2 weeks to get the results, but maybe that's just due to where they send them. Mine were done at Repromed in Adelaide even though I'm in Melbourne.

    I got mine done mid cycle & I had to ask FS for results. I got the bill for the bloods about 2 weeks afterwards & I ticked the box for receipt needed and added please send results & they sent me a preprinted letter stating they weren't allowed to disclose
    Cheeky if you ask me!

    I didn't have any cysts at all on an ultrasound though, so I just don't understand! Did you?
