hi - this will be quick:
AMH 0.22 (last tested end of july)
FSH: 12, 7.7, 10.5 (only tested may, june, and july, so who knows how high?)
Prior children: yes, got preg 3.5 years ago, on 100mg clomid, before DOR diagnosis
Cycles length: 27-29, O around day 14
i had a m/c in january then went the RE route in may even though my OB told me not to because i was "fine". i went to two REs...first one basically said i would never get pregnant again without IVF (1% chance naturally, less than 5% with clomid) 25-50% with IVF, but it might take a couple rounds. did 50mg clomid had chemical pregnancy. was willing to work with me but you could tell he was annoyed about it.
second RE completely disagreed with the first. wanted to do clomid for a few months. first cycle with him did 100mg clomid got pregnant with twins. (am now 21 weeks) i found that my second RE took way more of an academic approach and didnt just put me into a slot based on my stats like my first RE. he was definitely willing to work with me, no questions asked, and was very optimistic (and he has a reputation for not being a cheerleader...does not give false hope).
dont know if that helps....good luck : )
