your RE doesn't know what he is talking about (pg. ment.)

Response to Thoughts on my latest RE consultation


FSH is NOT an indication of egg quality. There are many, many studies showing that FSH does not reflect egg quality. It may reflect your ability to respond to the stimulation drugs for IVF, but I have an FSH identical to yours and I didn't have any problems when the right protocol was used.

AMH is an indication of the quantity of eggs but not the quality. AMH can be related to IVF outcome but only because you probably won't produce as many eggs. However, at age 36 your egg quality should still be quite good.

If I were you I absolutely would not deal with this person any longer. I had a very similar consult at age 36.5. It ended up costing me two years of time. When I finally found an RE with a clue, I was 39. On my first IVF with him I became pregnant and had my daughter, but now I'm 40 and racing against the clock to have another one. At your age you would have a good chance if you can get to the right RE.

Where are you located? If you post that someone will probably suggest an RE who would be more optimistic for you.

Glad you are here! I was you fours years ago . . . and I am here to tell you that often on this board there are happy endings. happy.gif
