Just keep in mind, AMH levels are only an indicator so isn't definitive. But girls who are doing IVF for e.g. and have a low AMH don't wait long to cycle.
Do GP's order AMH tests? is it just a blood test? I'm not quite 34 and still young but would like to know how many eggs I have left
I have a friend that doesn't want kids until she's in her late 30s. Her husband will be in his 40s by that point. I've said that it's fair enough if she wants to be young and childfree for a while yet, but did suggest that maybe they should get their fertility checked just in case. It would suck to not find out you have fertility issues until you're older and therefore further decreasing fertility.
I don't know too many people like this though. Most people I know are too young for kids, or wanting to have kids but not in a position to yet (you know, they will as soon as they're in a good relationship or whatever). I'm scared about fertility, despite having no reason to be worried as far as I know. I'm only 26 but am watching that number 30 get closer each year, and worrying that once I hit that, I'll be an "older mother," who might need help conceiving. I'm so not interested in having to do that.
It's a simple blood test and it's $85. No rebate.
Lol at "older mother at 30"! Pretty sure the ave first time mother is 31 in Australia. Prfftt I'm 31 and think I'm still young but also old enough and mature enough to raise and support a child. However some people my age are still partying hard - ea to their own.
