Long story short older women in my family have gone through early menopause ( grandma, mother and aunties).
My aunties have actually been tested and had no egg reserves.
I'm 30, hoping for a few more children but won't try for next until 32/33.
Would you get egg reserve test considering history and that we want more or just wait?
What's the process and cost?

It's called an AMH test, simple blood test, u get the results a couple of weeks later, cost about $50. For me being a little older and going through fertility treatment it enabled me to get peace of mind and also help me evaluate my timeline. Does not detail quality tho which is just as important as quality. My advice is to have the test, compared to the rest of the journey tis really simple. Hope this helps😀😀

Yes - I'm 33 and have low AHM so getting ready to proceed with IVF. Results correlate with egg reserve so not an exact science. I think people that have had multiple tests get different results too.

No idea how much it cost but yes I'd absolutely get tested.
Imagine how horrible it'd be to find out too late.

I had an AMH when I first saw a FS. I would do it. It doesn't hurt and you can plan your future.

Thanks I'll talk to my oby at my checkup about it then. If the results come back low it will influence our future plans.

I am 33, Just had AMH test in QLD cost me $80. It was my next step TTC but if there was family history I would have done it sooner. Good luck

I would. AMH isn't that dear. Around $100. Just remember that it's a relatively new test. My gyno wasn't keen on me getting the test when we were suffering infertility as he said it was a guide and that was about it. Ovarian reserves can't increase yet many find their numbers go up. Personally I'd be jumping in and having more kids now. But then horses for courses and all that.

So do I just ask my oby for a referral ?
