    Sorry if this is repeating (I haven't actually read all of the 100+ previous posts).

    When we were TTC, tests revealed my wife's AMH was 2.4 (at 31 years old). Fertility specialist said that IVF would be our only option and that we may even need to use donor eggs! You can imagine how we felt walking out of that appointment!

    We decided to look at natural approaches and consulted with a specialist in Traditional Chinese Medicine (here in Perth). After 3 months, we got a BFP (no ivf, no donor eggs) and we now have a gorgeous 6 month old.

    Just wanted to share that there are often other avenues to explore and that the FS doesn't always hold all the answers. So don't give up hope and good luck with your TTC journey.

    postie,

    Thats great that you've had success. Im thrilled for you.

    But with such a low AMH at 31yrs old I would recommend trying ASAP for number 2 if thats what you wish. I would try ASAP and not wait thinking a gap between children is a great idea. With a low AMH it could take a little while longer to get number two.

    Just saying. not ment to be doom and gloom okay!!

    Thanks MysticFalls, but we're more than happy with just the one.

    Good advice though for those who would like more.

    Hi girls I am hoping some of you may be able to help me. My AMH is 1.1 and I have high FSH. My last cycle ended in no eggs.
    I started IVF due to DH sperm as ICSI was the only way for us but now that I have been told to go with donor eggs I was wondering if it would be worth trying DS.
    I have never looked into it as we were told that IVF would work for us. Now that we are looking at having a child that is only genetically linked to one of us I was thinking that DS may be cheaper or easier to get our hands on instead of having to travel OS for DE.

    Not one FS has ever mentioned DS to us.
    I am so exhausted by this whole process and want to crawl into a deep hole. Im sure everybody feels like this along the way.

    I've been trying to research this, but I am getting so confused! I know you girls have a lot more experience, so I was hoping you could help me? I am a little worried about my current cycle. Last cycle, I was on the long protocol. I had Synarel for about 10 days, then Gonal F 300 for 10 days, then Trigger. They collected 3 eggs, 2 fertilised and 1 transfered (2nd egg was bad quality). This cycle, they are doing a short protocol, but I am on Luveris 75 and Gonal 450 for approx 12 days, and starting Orgalutran on day 5 of stimulation.

    I am just a little worried, because I have been reading about about Luveris (LH) and it was saying not to use it if you have Premature Ovarian Failure. I don't really know if I do have this. I am 30 and have a AMH of about 6, so it is low for my age but my doctor said this was probably due to my endometriosis damaging my egg reserve. Does this mean I have POF or not? I also read you shouldn't use LH if you have cysts, but I do have a small chocolate cyst on an ovary. My doctor wasn't too concerned with it as it was quite small. Should I be using LH? I'm sure my doctor should know what she's doing, but I just want to be sure.

    It's a little late now anyway, as I have already started my cycle, but I just want to put my mind at ease!

    Hey guys I'm a low AMH'r...5.3 at 35 (now 36!). I did 1 IVF and 2 ICSI last year, resulting in 4 transfers (last one 2 embies) and unfortunately my last one resulted in a chemical. FS at last appointment said it was time to stop due to my low egg quality and so now Im waiting on donor embryos (Im a single gal- also now used most of my savings!). 2 months ago the waitlist was 6 months...but ive decided i can't leave it to chance so in a few weeks Im going to join a 2nd clinics donor waitlist. I don't know whether to tell my FS and the 2nd clinic what I am doing....but Im worried if I wait for one clinic I'll could end up waiting for years (I've seen others post about years of waiting). I feel a little like I'm doing something wrong but I need to do something? I'd love to hear others thoughts about doing this? And whether I should i tell my FS and the 2nd clinic about each other? I feel torn😯

    Hi @katham I'm glad you have made this decision. It's a hard but smart decision to move to DE. Is the wait list for Australian donors? I have been told at least 5years. Or the world egg bank? My FS does not believe the quality of these eggs are very good.
    I have just started the application to access my super to use Known Egg Donors but also think overseas is a good option if you are ok with travel.
    If the waiting list is for an Australian donor I would put myself on any waiting list I could find. Best of luck.

    Thanks @ waiting to exhale for your support. The wait is for perth donors. I have a strong belief around any child knowing their donors so would hope that I end up with this option (I have a background in working in child protection). Unfortunately the clinic said when embies become available I don't get a choice, just the one donor....and they might choose to be unknown to the child until they are 16. So much to think about when using DE, but Im trying to live in the moment and not worrywart about the future. I did read that my pregnancy odds go for 20-30% to 50-70% with DE. Besides my low AMH I don't seem to have any other issues (at this stage😨)
    Do you have a known donor or is this a service/site?...if you have someone this would be lovely for you😊 I don't have anyone I would ask, a friend offered but I refused as it wouldn't work for me. Another friend offered any embies left from her IVF but she is only starting IVF now im not hopeful that this would happen.
    The journey continues....

    @katham Known Egg Donors is a service where women from South Africa come to Brisbane to donate eggs and you can get to know them and keep in touch if you get a BFP. I was looking at going to Greece but am hoping that by being able to stay in Au it will be less disruptive to my children that I am blessed to have.
    Did your FS say how long the wait may be? I was told 5-7 years !!!
    I hope this year is our year.
