i have recently found out i have low anti-mullerian hormone... the test was done when i was 17 and my doctor never contacted me about it. im going in for another one specifically to check for it, but im now 21 and im concerned how these extra 4 years may have affected my fertility?
Ive wanted a baby for as long as i can remember, my heart is breaking at the idea that i may not be able to conceive.
im not ready for a baby yet, im not married and im not financially stable. haven't even got a house at the moment (just living with my parents until i can find one...) so getting pregnant now is out of the question. my doctor briefly spoke about freezing my eggs and IVF in the future but i am worried about the cost. is any of this covered by medicare due to my condition? what about private health insurance (i dont have any at the moment but can i even get covered for it now that it would be a pre-existing condition)? could contraceptives have given the result? i have never been on any contraceptives long term, especially back then (as far as i can remember) but i was just wondering if it was a possibility cause i have tried i few here and there and they make my very sick...
is there anyone out there who has/is experiencing this who can shed some light on my situation? i know its not common to have this so young, does anyone know what my chances are of conceiving naturally in a few years time?
I'm terrified that i won't be able to have a child... :'(
