Sorry Mel, I cannot help with that. But having been told mine is not as good as would have liked (9.1 at 34), I'd be interested to see some positive outcomes for others with low AMH.
Good luck with yours.

after 4xIUI's did AMH test got told 4.8 at age 36 - shocked.
was told by new FS to try at least 5 IVF....
will elaborate on story if you like, but DHEA along with "giving up" and "putting plan B in place" was probably the key... lucky last IVF, cant keep throwing good money after bad eggs, surprisingly it worked.... absolutely over the moon, cant believe it...
good luck, I guess I can now say that it can happen.... even though I didnt believe it before.

My amh is undectable < 1. Doc (private clinic) told me the only way I'd ever get PG again was through a donor - so a donor I found... story continues...
However, I've wanted to try one more time with my own eggs and to test out DHEA, which many ladies rave about on BH. It's been ages getting a good BT result day 1 eg FSH 15 - 16, but my last period my FSH was 'only' 11 and so I had a go. Used gonal 450 on a short cycle and had 6 good sized follies - only 1 egg at EPU but doc (public clinic) said that AMH is only half the picture - it tells us about quantity but not quality, so I'm in with as good a chance as anyone. My single egg fertilised and was looking beaut at day 3 for an uneventful transfer. Now I'm in the 2WW
Hope that makes sense and is a little helpful for you. Short answer is - your amh of 4.8 indicates you may need higher doses of drugs and won't get huge hauls of egg no's, but you've still got some eggs in there at age 36. Ask your FS about DHEA and keep trying and don't despair x

I can't offer a success story, but I'm also interested in hearing about them. I'm 40 with AMH of 3. Two cancelled cycles so far and I'm starting to despair.

i conceived DS the month after after my amh was tested at 4.0 in 2009 - i had been on dhea for about 2 months when that level was tested. im currently waiting to see if the current pg will progress (see signature), but i have no doubt my amh has dropped lower as i had a lower response to the stim drugs this round. it can definately happen, im sure there was a lady on here who said she got a bfp after her amh was < 1 !!!!

I am interested to hear success stories also, as this morning I have been informed that my AMH is 2.2!!!
Sad thing is I am only 32.....
FS said that IUI was our only option as IVF would not provide enough eggs...
Firstly though I have to go and have a lap done to see if either of my tubes are blocked or if I have any endo...
Given all this info has been hard to take. But then to be told that we do not have any time to waste, and that it is more than likely that I will go through Menopause between the ages of 35 - 40 has been heart breaking!
I hope to hear some good news from someone my age or not who has had success.

mysticme: hi, i personally think you would have a greater chance of success with ICSI?????...most women with low levels tend to bypass IUI (its same odds as natural basically) and go straight to ICSI as that gives a high fert rate than standard ivf. my fs took me to epu this round cos she says the reaserch suggests that u have a greater chance of pg doing ivf / icsi with one egg than doing it naturally. also even tho your amh is 2.2 it doesnt mean u will only get one or 2 eggs , you could get more. see the poor responders thread for treatment regimes. good luck.

Thanks for the reply!
My FS was the one who said I am not a good candidate for IVF. Will see what happens when we go back to see him next.

I agree with JFB - maybe get a second opinion...
Also re AMH - my fertility spec said that AMH is a quantity thing - NOT a quality thing. Therefore you may not get 10+ eggs but they may be good quality. She also said that it's NOT predictive of menopause timing?? However, I gotta say though with an AMH < 1 at 40 I'm feeling menopausal.
She also said heaps of women with AMH < 1 get pregnant even after 43??
