    Default TTC with a low AMH level

    Hi everyone,

    I have been stalking these forums since September 2012. I stopped BC in August 2012 and my husband and I started actively TTC in September. I am 26, husband is 27.

    I went for a check up with my GP four weeks ago just to ensure we were doing everything we were meant to be, and was sent for a number of new blood tests. Yesterday the dr told me my anti-mullerian hormone (AMH) is very low at 6.9 which means my egg count is low. Unfortunately all they could do was give me a referral for a Fertility Specialist.

    I would be lying if I did not say I am devastated. I have been undergoing fertility acupuncture for 5 weeks, in the hope that would just make the process happen a little sooner.

    I am worried I may not be able to conceive naturally and more upset that I cannot get answers now.

    Has anyone else had a low AMH result?

    Default TTC with a low AMH level

    Hi
    Sorry to hear about your AMH result. I'm 34 and mine came back at 4.5. I was devastated to say the least. I was given a 1% chance of conceiving naturally as my DH has motility and morphology issues also.

    The good news is that this test is relatively new and needs to be taken with a grain of salt. I am now 26 weeks pregnant so you still have a chance at natural conception.

    Best of luck

    Hi,

    I am 31 and found a few weeks ago that my level is 5. We have been trying for a while that is why I went to drs. Plus my periods are regular but very light so I was a bit concerned.

    i have been referred to a fertility specialist but can't get in until early April.

    my sister has the same thing she had a level of 7 (that was when she tried for the first time) she now has a 1 year old and is pregnant again with the help of clomid.

    So I am holding out some hope..but it still sucks! And I can't stop worrying which doesn't help matters.

    when do you see the FS?...I would love to share notes and experiences...I have posted a couple of times about it but couldn't really find anyone in the same boat.

    Wow, I didn't expect repies so quick. I feel a little better knowing there are others in the same boat that I can actually talk to.

    I was only given the referral yesterday, so have not been able to contact the FS yet. I will be on the phone first thing in the morning. I am in Brisbane and have been referred to one in the city, however the GP is now happy to refer me to the FS who actually delivered me.

    The worst bit is when you see a doctor, and they tell you not to worry or stress. Hmmm. I am not sure I will have any tears left soon.

    I am keen to see what my acupuncturist says, when I first saw him he told me straight away that my ovaries and kidneys needed a little help and we had to get the circulation flowing better. At my visit last week I asked and he said I am in his category of falling pregnant in 3-6 months...now I'm not so sure

    I know I cried and cried...my husband wasn't sure what to do. He doesn't really understand women's stuff and just kept saying don't worry it is probably my sperm..I had to keep telling no darling the test said there is something wrong with me. I hope you can into the FS quicker than me. I live in regional Queensland and we only have one dr who deals with fertility so he is really hard to get into. It is going to be a long wait!

    My doctor did say to me that he had another woman in the same boat and she was waiting for her cycle to start so she could go on medication and her period never came because she was pregnant...not sure if that was true or if he was just trying to stop me from crying when he told me the test results.

    My result was 1. But after having my son in 2010, I fell pregnant once in 2011 and twice in 2012 (three miscarriages). I'm now 20 weeks and doing fine. I had no treatment to assist fertility. Just wanted to let you know that whilst these tests are useful, they're not everything.
