Response to What can I expect with a fertility doctor next week?


Well first of all I think your fsh numbers look great! Your AMH is throwing me off because it actually seems abnormally high or maybe you are not in the US and I'm unfamiliar with how it's written. I'm not really sure what ideal
Dhea or prolactin numbers are so no help there unfortunately. What is your E2 level?

You will likely get an antral follicle count (afc) done. That's so important. Also I'm not sure I would agree with PGD and feel like maybe you are getting a little ahead of yourself. That for me would very much depend on how many eggs were retrieved (and a good indicator of that is based on your afc). Budget is a comsideration for some-it's expensive. There is also at least one study that shows one might discard a potential take home baby that would self correct after the test is done. Now there are some the test is perfectly suited for. In my opinion that would be someone looking to avoid passing on genetic problems, someone who has many embryos and this is a great tool for selecting the likely better possibilities and also of course someone that has suffered from many miscarriages.

Keep us posted and take some time to consider your options before committing to a particular course of treatment.
