    So I'm quietly banging my head against a brick wall here

    Went to my Doctor to request my AMH test and apparently he doesn't think he's allowed to request that test as he's not a FS.

    My FS, as you know, has refused to order the test.

    What to do now? Must I go off my rocker at my FS and demand it?

    I don't get it. All three FS I've seen have tested my amh without me even asking for it. It's a stock standard test.

    personally I wouldn't worry about it Blossom. as it's just another number to worry/keep thinking over. and from the articles posted recently it sounds like it's not that reliable. plus it's not measuring quality. I mean, if you can do it, that's good, but I wouldn't worry too much if you don't know it. (I don't know mine - on the form it just said something like 'value recorded' but I was never told the number.)

    Blossom I wouldn't worry about the test all that much. No one seems to be very clear about my results to me, anyway. I've read more about AMHthan any medical professionals told me about it... which makes me think no one really knows about how accurate it really is. I also had my GP do the test..I went through qml cost me about $80

    I was just interested. I'd like some form of confirmation that I do still have something left in reserve and I'm not doing all this with no hope of success. I think I'll still follow it up, even if the results are open to interpretation.

    Yeah you'll get a number and then there's a scale according to your age. I'm meant to be above 13 but got 3.1..... It just tells me to get cracking on the baby lol I started ivf a month after my result.

    My GP ordered my first AMH, then my FS did my second. GP's can definitely do it. I know how frustrating it is. My GP won't do any of my CT scripts or referrals and keeps saying only my FS can do them which is bullocks as the other girls on here have theirs done via their GPs. I personally think my GP doesn't want to be seen treading on the great LB's toes, which again is bullocks! And triple bullocks is LB charging me $200 today for this cycles CT scripts and referrals. Sorry for ranting!!

    Just to provide some balance to the negative stats. With my first D&C for a missed miscarriage, I was WAY too scared to go to hospital (phobia!) so I ended up having my D&C at an abortion clinic (doesn't that sound awful?). But the people there were so friendly and kind and understanding and it was a much nicer atmosphere than a hospital and I figured they did it all day, every day so they knew what they were doing. All in all it was a comfortable experience. Anyway, I got talking to the doctor there and he said that apart from teenagers, the biggest group of women terminating pregnancies are over 40. He said they are told that their fertile years are over, so they have unprotected s3x and lots of unwanted pregnancies. The doctor said people would be surprised, and because it is done so secretively the stats are not always known. So even though I know we're all in this group because we've had trouble, it's not impossible and we need to know that over 40 isn't necessarily a death sentence for our ovaries
