    Default Best contraception method for a low AMH 21 year old

    Hi,

    I have found out that I have a very low AMH level for my age group. It was at 10.2 nmol/L at age 20 and I am 21 now.

    I'm currently on the Depo Injection for contraception and have been for years, but am really wary of the stories I've heard about how long it takes for the Depo to wear off after it's discontinued and how long it takes for your system to return to normal.

    I'm refusing to rush into pregnancy before I'm ready but am concerned that if I stay on the Depo I will make it even more difficult to conceive when I am ready.

    Any advice on the best contraception methods which, once discontinued, will allow all ovulation processes to return to normal as fast as possible..?

    I'm not great with remembering medications so I'd rather not be on the pill.

    Ps. I tried to post this in the 'expert advice' section but couldn't work out how to post there.

    Thank you!

    I don't know anything about infertility sorry so hope it's ok to reply.

    But my dr was discussing options with me and she said that the implant was a good option if I wanted to not have to remember to take a pill every day but also return to normal ovulation etc quickly after it's removal.

    She said I would be able to fall pregnant pretty much straight away after having it removed (excluding any other factors of course).

    I would ask your fertility specialist that question

    Default Thanks

    Thanks Donnab739. I'm wary of hormonal contraception but might consider this instead. My GP was really keen on me switching to the implanon so if it's a quick return to normal cycles then maybe this is a good option.

    And thanks LilyPily I'm going to ask my GP about seeing a fertility specialist before I make a definite decision.
