I was recently talking with my partner about the future and babies and he told me he was thinking we should wait around 5 years to start a family, and that he wanted about three children... I am only 29, but I started doing the maths and thought I had better get my fertility checked out because my mum went through menopause very early.
AMH results back and they are very low at 4.8 So I am trying not to worry too much and be grateful that I looked into this sooner rather than later, but it's all a bit scary given that I wasn't even thinking about trying to have babies yet and now I could face potential infertility.
I have a referral to go and see Dr Gavin Sacks at IVF Australia but I couldn't get in to see him before I go away for a month, so I wasn't going to be able to get in until mid-August. I spoke to IVF Australia and they have given me an earlier appointment with Dr Michele Kwik... does anyone have experience with her or Dr Sacks? I think Dr Sacks is very experienced but I am sure Dr Kwik is also good... I am just not sure if I should wait or go earlier... Maybe this whole low AMH thing is not that complex?
I was hoping I could just freeze some embies for a later stage because my partner and I have only been together for 2 years we just aren't ready. Unfortunately I suspect it just isn't that straight forward
Would love to hear about similar experiences as well.
