    Yup, if they don't i'd ask for an AMH level test. It's not always definitive, but if its happens to be really low, then you might want to move faster on starting IVF.

    AMH levels decrease with age, so the number alone can't tell you if it's low. Your FS should be able to tell you if your AMH is about right for your age.

    My naturopath at sharkeys has warned against placing too much emphasis on the AMH results as it is such a new test. They have seen AMH levels go up in their clinic with treatment. The one thing she has told me is that a low AMH is an indicator of how well you will respond to IVF drugs, rather than how many eggs you have left. So if your number is low like mine (4 ish), you won't produce many eggs through IVF stimulation.

    Default Ovarian Reserve Question

    Thanks for that info. I havnt had those tests yet but had a look at us from mc in july and ovary volume was 2.3 in one and 3.2. I freaked out because everywhere i read it says they are really small for age 34. But doesnt explain how I conceived after only 3 months
