    When I had my AMH tested I was actually single. I was starting to explore the option of having a baby on my own. I wasn't anywhere near ready but wanted to find out my options etc so had initial blood tests which included AMH. When I got the results I was shocked and so upset. So went to see FS who told me if I wanted a baby I should do it now. My first and only cycle was cancelled as after 10 days of stimms I only had 2 follies. I went to another FS who told me she wouldn't bother trying again unless I could get my FSH under 12. Tried everything including HRT, TCM etc but nothing worked (over 7 months). I was devastated. So I gave up on the whole idea as I was consumed by it and suffering terrible anxiety and depression. About three months later I met a lovely guy! As I was pretty much told I had little hope of ever conceiving I wasn't being very careful with contraception and what do you know, 2 months after we met I was pregnant! I was in absolute shock. And so was he lol. fast forward more than two years and we are happily engaged and have our beautiful little girl

    Thank you so much for your lovely words! I was so upset to find I had low AMH and yet, as you say, it just takes a good egg to set you on the right course!
    We're having a little boy thank you so much for your wishes and I send you the very best wishes too!

    hi Dani,

    even though i find myself with low AMH as is expected for my age. I fell pregnant naturally at 41yrs old. I shouldnt imagine my AMH was much different than it is now. All it takes is one true. But unfortunately it did not last as my hubby sperm is disfunctional.

    Fairyfloss7676 yes i did look at the link, i think its a little too late for me. Im day 7 of stimming. If this doesn't work for me it will be egg donor and sperm donor.

    Default Low AMH club

    For those of you who did succeed with IVF, what IVF protocol did you find helped you net that golden egg?

    If it helps hun, my partner just did a frozen IVF cycle at 36. Her AMH was 9 last year so we wanted to try and freeze some embies for her. Due to health issues she is also considering a hysterectomy at 40, with her doctor's advice.
    She went well with the IVF, but was at risk at the end for overstimulation so the slowed down at the final run.
    We got 11 eggs out, 8 fertilised. Of those, 2 made it to 5 day blastocysts, which we're happy with. Xx

    Sorry, should have said - she was on the pill to regulate her cycle first, then gonal f and lucrin trigger lucrin is used instead if there is a fear over over stimulating

    That's actually quite interesting. They usually say a low AMH does not put you at risk of OHSS.. That's very interesting. Can I ask, what sort of symptoms did she get that made them believe she had OHSS or was it based on her estrogen levels?

    That was a very good outcome for your partner. A fantastic result. Can I ask, was she on synarel? Was it a long down cycle or an antagonist cycle and would you please pm me the clinic she used? I would love to go and see some of these clinics that have experience with older women!

    Sure, no problem!
    Our clinic was in Canberra and we live in Sydney - this was only due to to our choice of donor. Happy to send you the name if you're interested. She wasn't on synarel and she was on an antagonist cycle.
    She started to get a lot of follicles - 30 or so - towards the end and her E shot up. Lucrin won't mature the little ones and so the risk of OHSS is lowered when that is chosen as the trigger. I suppose, so too is the chance of any of the little ones catching up!
    Delighted with the results.. she only wanted to do the one so just as well!

    How are you going with your cycle?
