Hoping and Praying that I get a miracle!
I am 38 years old and after what I felt was a bad experience with my first doctor that I was with for nearly 2 years, I decided to seek a 2nd opinion and have now been going to New Hope Fertility in NYC with Dr. Zhang. My first doctor did absolutely nothing besides remove an endometrial cyst on my R ovary.
The doctor said he would try Mini IVF for me because I can’t take all the meds because Clomid increases FSH and mine is already really high, increasing in just weeks I don’t understand why it is so high so fast. At first my FSH level was 24.6 on day 3 (with the previous doctor (Feb 2012), this month it was 36 on day 3 and 46 on day 11 (yesterday) of my menstruation. My AMH level is extremely low <0.16 and I have low ovarian reserve and endometriosis. On sono last week they only saw 1 follicle in each ovary measuring about 4mm, yesterday I went back for another US and she said the follicle on the left didn’t grow and on the right i believe she said I had 4 and the best one was only 7mm. I have to go back Friday I guess for more blood and sono. I’ve just been crying and down since my phonecall yesterday because I feel like I have no chance of ever getting pregnant. The nurse said they want to see what my ovulation schedule is like I guess to get a better understanding of what my body is doing.
Has anyone gotten pregnant with so many odds against them? Im feeling really lost and depressed about this as I’m sure many of you can relate to. I was reading that acupuncture and herbs help but do they really? I was told that at best it will help with stress which I have alot of.
I hope that here I can help cheer some on and get some encouragement myself in this battle.
