    How long had you been trying (I) naturally and (II) how many IVF cycles did you try before you fell pregnant naturally?

    I am 30 and my amh is 6. My FS did mention it can vary slightly depending on the day. This is my first IVF cycle so I don't have a success story (yet). But the amount of eggs they collected was low - 3. Here's hoping they are good quality! I will find out tomorrow how many have fertilized.

    I am 33 and my AMH was 8.8 in December. I am 33 weeks pregnant so I've had a lot of success with iui (same sex partner).
    Good luck ladies!

    Good luck Amy.

    I'm considering swapping it to iui if I get low follicles. We use donor sperm and we have been given permission for one iui only.

    @amywillo86 - a lot of the time a low AMH in younger women doesn't indicate bad quality!! So hoping for every success for you tomorrow when they call!!

    Hi @dani251, congratulations!! That's wonderful news!! Just goes to show that, sometimes, AMH isn't entirely a bad thing. If you can nab that quality egg, that's all that matters!! Do you know the gender of the little bean? Wishing you a wonderful birth and lots of happy times!

    @MysticFalls have you spoken to your FS about that estrogen priming link I posted earlier? I came across it today. Does anyone know of a good FS in Sydney that has experience with older women with low AMH? Genea told me that sometimes the protocol itself could do more damage and his opinion was I should just keep trying naturally or try iui, but the last fs I saw said that was not a good idea. Too many varying opinions amongst the fs fraternity..

    That's interesting that the test has been changed. Just needs to be used in perspective with other info like FSH levels & antral follicle count. Too many clinics take it out of context and just freak people out.

    Yes I often wonder whether the protocol can damage the eggs in the process. I saw one FS who believed this and then recommended we do IUI or just try naturally, but we have been for 2 years! He was a dreadful FS, very rude, so we didn't go with him.

    Can I ask when you stopped DHEA before you started your IVF cycle? Was it the first day of stims or did you take them during stimulation?
    Thank you we feel very lucky. Yes agree finding the right clinic/doctor is very important.
    I "think" I stopped the DHEA prior to starting stims, but it was over 3 years ago and my memory is slightly hazy.

    That's so true @rosey82!! Some clinics fixate on that number but all it's telling them is that the supply is not huge.. But there is an indirect correlation between AMH and responsiveness to IVF. Frankly, I wish I had studied medicine. I would love to be a caring FS catering to women who have been robbed by these useless FS'.. I find myself having to do my own research because they seem to be clueless...
