I am 41 and have children from my previous marriage from when I was a young pup. lol My DH now and I have decided to have try for another child. We were able to successfully achieve a DD after 18months of TTC and 7 IUI's. I was Dx back in 2008 with an elevated FSH of 10.6. Well, here we are 3 years later and went back to the same RE to see about starting one more time. Day 3 testing told me that I now had an FSH level of 22.6 and an AMH of .38. I also had an AFC of 10. My RE told me that the only way I would see success would be through DE. He told me that I had less than a 2% chance of achieving a pregnancy through IVF. My DH and I left deflated.
Realizing that we could not afford IVF (He recommended at least 3 cycles because of my low numbers) We also could not afford DE either. My husband was not on board with the idea anyway. We decided to try TI for a few months with my CPFM. While I did see Peak results each month, which was a huge plus, we never got to see a BFP.
After a few months of BFN's, I just felt like I needed to do something more. Something proactive. I started going to acupuncture a few months back and that seemed to help me, and also taking some vitamins etc. I decided to call up my RE and beg him to let me do IUI's with injectibles because we could not afford IVF and I needed to do something. He reluctantly agreed and set me up with Gonal-F for the month.
Well, today I am 10DPIUI and I have officially received a BFP on a digital test! I somehow got pregnant on my first IUI this time. No one could have guessed that I would respond so well to the medicine given my poor numbers. Of course it is still early and it may not stick, but I DID get pregnant which is half the battle!
I just want to say that there is always hope even in the grimmest situations. Don't ever give up! If I had listened to them, I would have believed that I could not have anymore children with my OE.
If anyone wants to know what I did exactly regarding supplements, medicine, etc... please ask.
Baby dust and hope to all of you TTC.
