    Pinkshootingstar - low AMH relates to the number of eggs you have left, not the quality. I too had low AMH -1 but fell pregnant on our 2nd IVF cycle but miscarried. I had 3 previous miscarriages (non IVF) it was only after they tested one of the miscarriages that we found out the reason I had miscarried was because of a trisomy 10 (3 chromosomes on the 10th instead of 2) due to my age then(42) we didn't want to waste anymore time and moved to ED. You have obviously already consulted a fertility specialist to obtain your AMH - did they recommend egg donor? if they didn't, I would definitely speak to them about it first. Should ED be the recommendation... You have already found the right place. The timing once we made the decision was only 3 months, but that all depends on the donor you choose being available at the time, her testing etc. It is much faster than I imagined it would be. Good luck with your journey no matter which path you need to take.

    Thanks sunflower for recommending this site. I'm amazed at how common/popular this is for Donor Eggs. Also congratulations on your transfer and results!!

    Rainbow chaser and MGC Bertie I haven't had an AMH test, my specialist hasn't recommended it. Should I request this? He hasn't let me start IVF despite rolling in there each month this year as my FSH is too high, in the 20's and he said they won't do IVF if over 8-9. This is why he believes I have low ovarian reserve.


    This is fairly consistent with everything my friend google tells me so I haven't seen a need for a second opinion.


    Also time is against me as my partner is 47 (I'm 38) and he doesn't want to be having another baby at 50. We've been trying for a year after his vasectomy reversal and our efforts to start IVF so as much as I'd love to find someone who'd allow IVF with high FSH, I ultimately don't want to miss the boat of being a mum when statistically the chances are much higher for me to go the Donor Egg path.

    Hi Pinkshootingstar - when I was cycling with my own eggs the first FS who saw me would not treat me. I changed clinics and although my FSH was in the 20's (I was 43 at the time) they gave it a go. I did 2 cycles and both were cancelled due to poor response. I am glad I gave it a go as I then knew for sure it was hopeless with my own eggs. After the second cycle the FS said to me my only option was donor eggs as cycling again with my eggs was pointless.

    It may be worth getting a second opinion. Who knows a different FS and protocol may just work for you.

    You need to be 100% sure that donor eggs is the right path and part of that decision is knowing that it will never happen with your own eggs. A very warm welcome to you and I wish you all the best in your decision and journey, you have stumbled across the best support network here.

    MrsErinR - You must be over the moon with those numbers. When we went in for our day 3 transfer we were told 4 had fertilized, we had previously told only 3 and that was out of a total of 22 eggs (5 from original donor and 17 from frozen egg back up donor). All the best for your transfer.

    Sunflower11 - Congratulations absolutely terrific Beta numbers. Maybe more than 1 in there.

    Biba jani - Very sad to read your BT result. Unfortunately it does not always happen first go as many of us know. Cape Town in my opinion is still the best chance any of us will ever have. As someone else has already said it won't hurt to stay on the meds a couple more days until your second BT just to be sure. Thinking of you.

    lister - We had travel insurance and I must admit I did not give it much thought as I considered the risks quite low.

    MissErin those are fabulous results. All the best for quality and loads of Day 5 blasties.
    Biba, my deepest sympathies. It is a hard road we tread
    Sunflower, those are lovely numbers, congratulations!
    Pinkshooting, January is right, you need to take your time making your decision. I also think it is an important part of the process to do the grieving necessary to be able to move on to DE with a full heart and be excited about the process. If you don't want to go overseas, there's loads of donors on Egg Donation Australia forum. It might take you longer there though as you need to get known a bit before a donor will offer to you. Going to South Africa, you can pretty much get going straight away and many of us do not want to wait a minute longer than necessary.
    January, how are you enjoying pregnancy? Have you been doing lots of shopping for bub?

    Pinkshootingstar.... yes, you should definitely have your AMH tested, as this really is the indicator of ovarian reserve (and I'm kind of surprised that it hasn't been mentioned to you). However, the test is not claimable through Medicare, so you have to pay it yourself, so perhaps that's why your specialist hasn't recommended it. I do find it odd that you've been going for tests every month for the whole year, yet he won't let you start IVF based solely on your FSH. I definitely think it's worth getting a second opinion from another clinic. I would think you would want to give it a go with your own eggs first, and if you respond poorly, then at least you know you've tried and can easily move onto DE. It's good though that you're already considering the DE route early in your journey - for me it took ages to come to terms to this, but I'm whole-heartedly happy now with it (will be happier when I'm actually pregnant though!!)

    Pink shooting star - if your Dr has not specifically done the AMH test, then he cannot say you have low ovarian reserve. I would find myself another specialist if he just randomly suspected that without the proper test. Again, low ovarian reserve only relates to the number of eggs you have remaining NOT the quality of them. You only need one quality egg.

    PinkShootingStar, I got my AMH done through my GP so that is another option if you just want to know what it is. I think it cost about $70 and it took a few weeks.

    Just a quick question for those who've already had a transfer at CFC. When they give you an appointment time do you pretty much go straight in to have the transfer or is there an appointment or some waiting around first. I'm trying to figure out how early to fill my bladder up. I hate the full bladder part!

    Erin, we did not wait at all! I drank my water, but when i went for transfer they said that my bladder is completely empty. I thought, that there would be a waiting time etc. i remember at Genea they make you to wait, then to change, then they do blood test, by the time you are in the transfer room i was bursting!! But not at CFC, so do not worry.
