Response to High FSH


Your FSH really is not that high. There are tons of people in your shoes that have had success. What your number tells you is that you need an RE that specializes in poor responders, that you need a protocol that is specific for poor responders, and that you should absolutely consider embryo banking if you plan on having more than 1 child. If you are up for travel, CCRM and Life are good options for IVF for poor responders. 2 totally different approaches, but with an FSH like yours and your age, CCRM would probably be excellent. Please post on the over 40 board because it has so much more activity and you do not need to be over 40.

As for success, when I was 32, I was diagnosed with a high FSH of 18. Others said they suspected it was actually much higher based on my poor antral follicle count, but just not tested that high. I had success on my second round of IVF, which I did at CCRM after a horrible local cycle where I had zero embryos fertilize.

When I was 37, I had success again with an FSH of 32 that has been tested 2 years prior. No telling how high my FSH really was at that point. So, do not be discouraged, but know that it is best to be extremely proactive, set up appointments with multiple docs, and always have your backup plan in place. Also, don't be discouraged by docs who turn away those with high FSH, they turn away lots of people just to keep their success stats up.
