Response to High FSH/low AMH, need advice!
Sorry you got the difficult news, but it's not the end of the road for you. I'm glad you found these boards, they're such a lifeline. I'm echoing the others about Dr. C.ardone in Stoneham. I wasted some time with other REs in the Boston area who really didn't want to help me. Dr. C. was so different.
My highest known fsh was 27.2 and my amh was .39. In 2008 (when I was 38), he helped me conceive my now almost 3-year-old son. It was on my third (and last) low-stim IUI while preparing for IVF. Then, last year (at 41), we decided to try again. Shockingly, I got PG naturally while he was monitoring me to see how we'd proceed with treatment. My DS is now 6 mos old.
Dr. C. won't do IVF on everyone. He likes to go to retrieval with at least three follies, I believe. At least that's what he told me he wanted in my situation. Since I was producing around 3 on very low stims, he was willing to do IVF. In the end, I didn't need it, though.
What I also loved about Dr. C. was how thorough he was. None of the other REs did anything beyond u/s's and testing my FSH. Dr. C. performed a hysteroscopy during which he found and removed large polyps. He also was good about testing my thyroid and immune issues.
Wishing you all the best no matter who you end up with. Keep us posted.
