Low AMH Levels
So I'm 37 and I'm new to ttc at all, much less assisted fertility. I'm single so I was planning on doing donor insemination sometime next year. I had all the fertility tests done just to make sure I was good to go when the time came. On Wednesday my doctor called with my test results and told me my HSG was normal, my FSH levels were ok, but that my AMH levels were at 0.3. I looked it up and a 37-year-old should be at 1.7! 41-year-olds and older should be at 0.5! So I have the ovarian reserve of like a 45-year-old?! The doctor suggested we use some meds to stimulate hyper-ovulation and then do
, but I don't think I can afford
. And, according to the internet 😌, my odds of conceiving naturally (I.e., without
) are at about 1%!!! (I know they're slightly higher with meds and <a href="https://glowing.com/glow-fertility-program">IUI</a> and washed semen, but still pretty low.) Is anyone in something close to my same boat? Anyone have any words of wisdom or uplifting, hopeful stories or suggestions? I'm not gonna lie, I kinda broke down about this when I found out. Now I'm trying really hard to be positive and problem solve... Tips? 😌 Anyone?
So, just to give people some hope (because I know I needed it when I first posted this), I DID conceive naturally after only about three months of trying, though I miscarried at 5 weeks. 😢 But I feel a lot of the same symptoms now, so...🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻! But at least the conception part is possible with super low AMH levels! I don’t know if my egg quality sucks or anything, but...there’s still some in there that can, in fact, be fertilized! It’s hope! 😌
I am, in fact, pregnant again! 5 weeks 3 days now (1 day past when I miscarried last time), so... 🤞🏻👏🏻🙏🏻 But there IS hope ladies! I was so depressed when I got that AMH news from my doc, so if you’re in my boat...major hope! Totally possible! 100% natural, 2 months after a miscarriage. Hope hope hope!!!! 😌❤️
