You said, "Thanks for your response, and sorry about being new and not knowing the rules.." please don't worry about it in the least. Even those of us who have been here a while forget now and then!
You have already been to your appointment by now but things to ask are:
1) How do you plan to treat my high FSH
2) What tests do you plan to see why I have high FSH
(Sometime this just happens naturally but sometimes it is cause by high thyroid levels.)
3) How many high FSH patients have you helped?
Even if you are not sure of the answers you want a Dr who has a plan!
Other ladies will pipe in with more advice but I think these are three biggies!
Most Dr. are clueless and old school when it comes to FSH. You might well get shuffled right out the door! But, some aren't. I am so glad another lady already joined in with a Dr. recommendation for you! Great start!
Also, are you getting regular cycles still? If not and you are starting to have hot flashes and all (I was too!) have tell the Dr. that at first you are just there to treat "absence of menstrual cycle" and "early menopause". Tell them that after you get that under control then you will see where you stand for PG. I only say this for money reasons. Unless you have unlimited resource (I would love that to be true!) or unbelievable insurance, most insurance has a cap for infertility issues. But, you can get around that by treating this first, so it's not coming from your infertility insurance money. If you don't have insurance for infertility at all then your insuracne, specially at your age, should cover what they call "Hormonal issues", which high FSH falls under. So, getting coded as something other than infertility can save you thousands. Even when you get your refusal from your GP to the RE make sure they list it as "Hormonal imbalance" or "irregular menstruation". Once you start treating to get pg then you'll have to switch but while they get you back on track this can be a huge help!
Hugs to you and hang in there! My highest FSH was in the 50's and they have me down to 5. That does not cure everything, I still have never gotten PG, but I am also 37, not your age! I think it is worth trying.
