    My AMH when I started ivf was less than 4 I think, and I'm sure there are loads of ladies on the "over40" threads who have as equally as crappy ovarian reserves so please don't feel alone. I've only recent popped back on bubhub due to a recent disaster donor egg cycle and have already received loads of support

    Thanks MissDa for your reply.
    I'm sad to hear you went through a disasterous donor cycle 😔. None of this is easy, is it?
    It's depressing when everyone around me is having babies and even women older than me☹
    Anyway, good luck xx

    Hi! I'm 32 and have a Amh of 1.1. We did 8 IVF cycles before getting pregnant with my son Max who is now 14 mths. I also have endometriosis and adenomyosis. Because of my low Amh, we have genetic testing done on all embryos. It's sounds to me like they need to tweek ur meds to get better follicle maturation. I was on the highest puregon to get a good response and always got about 5-8 eggs with 3 developing to nice embryos. The average genetically normal is 2 in 3, I got one of 3, which made my son.
    So I skim read a bit... @SG79 did u do an IVF cycle or IUI? I would 100% try IVF before going donor. Unless they have given confirmed faults with your eggs. What clinic are you with? I'm with Repromed in SA, they are brilliant!!

    I feel you Hun! I was 8 cycles! All my friends had 1 or 2 kids in that time! It's horrible! If u can afford to, don't give up. See a new specialist there are so many thing they can do.
    Ask about
    *highest puregon dose to improve the follicle number
    *dhea to improve egg quality
    *genetic testing to ensure any embryos are genetically normal before they go back.

    I'm changing specialists next month. I saw a natropath yesterday who said AMH is bullsh$& as it fluctuates and little is known about it's accuracy so that made me feel SO much better! Since I was told my AMH result, no one in the health profession seems to be able to tell me much about it, I think the most I got was its a "new test "and "your result means we can't waist time. "
    I will write down what you have just said and take it with me next month, thank you!
    Xxxxxxx

    I thought I would jump on here to offer some reassurance. I too had low AMH (1.3), combined with very high FSH levels (20). DH was all good (thank god!).
    We went straight for IVF (ICSI) and initially the injections were doing sod all to stimulate my follicle growth, but after a few adjustments we saw some movement. My ER only collected 5 eggs, of which 4 fertilised.
    We opted to put 2 embies back in, with the aim of freezing the remaining 2. Sadly the 2 didn't make it to freezing and I had all my hopes pinned on the 2 inside.
    Fortunately it came back BFP (single) and I am currently 11w+2.

    I realise a lot could still go wrong but it goes to show low AMH levels do not automatically mean no chance. Unless you are really on a tight time/budget frame then I would recommend a few more IVF cycles.

    It can happen

    For anyone who just started looking , don't panic initially if ur Amh is low, unless there are other thing such as other hormones altered too. I got an Amh of <1, normal hormones, found it was a false result, lab later had a recall of tests. I did have endo though and ended up doing ivf... Have a baby though!!!!
