I have been posting here recently in order to gain some information for my identical twin sister. 3 weeks ago she learned that she had high FSH (20) and low AMH (.2)
I know she is probably feeling much more upset than I am because she was the one who was diagnosed but throughout our entire life we could always "feel each other's pain" so to speak and I have become completely consumed in trying to find out information, looking for success stories...
Right now my sister's RE has told her that is in a 3 month waiting period. She has been instructed to take DHEA, she goes to acupuncture, and she is taking a medication to raise her low thyroid levels. The Dr. doesn't even want to see her until March and at that time they will retest her AMH. This wait is killing her and me. I literally cannot stop thinking about it and I am sure it only worse for her. I am also certain that many of you felt this way early on in your diagnosis.
I am also worried about myself. I do have an 18 month old son who was conceived naturally but now my husband and I are trying for #2. We have only been trying for 2 months but I have noticed that I have had many of the same symptoms that my sister has experienced. (night sweats, low libido...) I know that I should get tested but unlike my sister and her husband, my husband and I have absolutely no chance in being able to afford IVF...
How did you all stay sane during all of this? What can I do to help my sister keep her mind off of her fertility problems?
I just truly hope that 6 months to a year from now I am posting her success story!!
