Low AMH, High FSH


#1

Hello everyone
My AMH was 0.5 and my FSH was 11.4. I have been off of birth control for a month and had these 2 tests done on the 2nd day of my period. I am 32 y/o and am extremely disheartened. Obgyn has recommended fertility specialists and redoing those 2 tests. My estradiol was normal. I haven’t slept or eaten in the past 2 days and feel horrible. Just want to know what I should do. I have been reading that with these results my chances of even using IVF/IUI are slim and that I would most likely need to use an egg donor.
Would my fsh and amh decrease in a month? I would be 2 months since I was off my birth control and I will be taking the exam on the 3rd day of my period.

Sometimes it is better to wait a bit longer after being off your pills. To some other people it can even take 6 months before they get pregnant when they are off the pills. It depends with how your body will react. You are not yet sure about yours so far. And also the results reading are not that promising. I think you can boost your AMH and FSH levels by eating healthy. You can take a month concentrating on your lifestyle. That way I think you can help. Although dealing with this issue naturally will take long. Unless you want conceive really quickly. But if you are talking if short term help. Then you will have to go with the donor eggs. If you are also not comfortable with that idea. Because many people prefer their own babies. You can take some months off focusing on increasing your fertility levels. I wish you the best in the trial.

Many doctors believe that FSH levels higher than 10-15 mIU/mL when the test is done on the third day of a menstrual period may indicate diminished fertility. Poor egg health or low ovarian reserve (indicated by low AMH levels). These hormone levels do not indicate menopause. It is important to know that FSH levels fluctuate throughout a woman’s menstrual cycle. Normal FSH levels for menstruating women range should range from 4.7 to 21.5 mIU/ml. Keeping in mind that normal ranges may vary among laboratories during the follicular and luteal phases of the menstrual cycle. FSH levels should be between 30 and 50 IU/L mid-cycle right before ovulation and will naturally be higher in postmenopausal women. In general at 60 IU/L or more.
It may help to reach back out to your OB/GYN. Ask why these test results concern her. High or low levels of FSH, in relation to the time of your cycle when they were run. Can indicate an imbalance, or fertility health concern. We feel that the health and current state of the endocrine system needs to be looked at. First when egg health is a concern due to low or high FSH levels and decreased AMH levels. You can try Bio tex com. They have more information and best services concerning this.

I have friends who have had similar cases but had treatment in Bio tex clinic. I wish you the best in the trial.

Are you ready for egg donor. If that is the case I have no idea how to deal with it.

That low amh is no good, I’m afraid. Mine was <3,2 which actaully became the hugest issue while ttc. Of course we got to know about it later when seeking a fertility expert’s help. Moreover, we did try own eggs for ivf rounds. I had 2 of them. Both failed leaving me disheartened at 42 yo with the prospect of using donor eggs. Yet one DE cycle ended in bfn, another one - successful. I hope the way is/will be smoother for you. All the best of luck!
