    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.

    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.

    I think the GP will do it. Its just a blood test. It just gives you a level which they can say is high or low for your age. A little bit low isn't really much to worry about, if it came back super low, then you might worry but its not definitive.

    I had an AMH referred by my gyno. I came in at a very low 4.5 at the age of 33. Pretty bad! Thankfully I found out when I was just 4 weeks pregnant so couldn't have come at a better time. My FS said I had almost zero chance of conceiving naturally with that reading. You just never do know though
    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.

    You are scaring me now lol I plan to see a gyno is this cycle is a no go so I might ask for this test. Is it a score out of 10, with 0 being no eggs and 10 being heaps?

    No its just a level. I had mine done at about 30 and it was 16 which is around normal for my age. It would be very unlikely that yours would be super low if you have two little kiddies already. Even if it did come back low, its only an indicator, its not the be all end all. Its worth having it done, just to see what it is.

    As far as your body is concerned, yes you are an older mum. I am in my 30's and preg w #2 and am classed as and older mother. Our bodies are at their best for pregnancy at about 16 (so my OBGYN tells me). When people decide to have kids has nothing to do with when their body is at its peak for conception, carrying and child birth.
