    @Youngandhopeless as Wise Enough said if you are unable to carry than Surrogacy would be an option for you, her advice of a 2nd opinion on the AMH levels and the idea of freezing eggs now would be something high on my priority list.

    I can see you are in QLD unfortunately my experience with Surrogacy only extends to VIC and WA but it is definitely legal to do Surrogacy in QLD. Freezing and storing eggs isn't too expensive, though I am not sure if you would be entitled to any Medicare rebate as it would be for Surrogacy (I'm just asking on the Families Through Surrogacy Facebook group).

    Costs for Surrogacy can vary, the average is about $70K either here or overseas. They both have ups and downs. My advise would be to join the above facebook group, they are very helpful

    Well I got pregnant using IVF with an AMH of <1 so it's definately possible to get some embryos using donor sperm, freeze them & look into surrogacy later down the track. Embryo freezing costs about $400 per year at my clinic with a max of 10 years of storage (then you can apply for an extension if needed). Please don't give up hope!

    Go back to your doctor and have him explain things again until you can understand. You can't develop a way forward for yourself until you 100% understand your medical situation.

    I don't have much advice as I am on a bit of a rough journey myself, but I just wanted to say that there is always hope, even when there feels like there is none. Can I suggest taking someone to your doctors appointments so that they can be your advocate and ask the questions you may forget?

    You poor thing. That is devastating news to take.

    What was your AMH? I agree that a second opinion from an experienced fertility specialist could be worthwhile.

    Like the other ladies have said, there are other opportunities such as adoption and surrogacy. But also, there are always advances happening in infertility. They are even doing uterus transplants these days! For all you know that could be more commonplace in a few years time.

    So, please don't think everything is over. Go and seek some good advice about what positive things you may be able to do to preserve your fertility, if possible. It only takes one egg and even girls with really low AMH can have success.
