My FSH has popped up again since I started taking it, but has never gone over my previous high. I don't have insurance and my RE won't kick me out based on FSH, so I really am not concerned about this (especially since it's likely to be normal fluctuations anyway).
I am just in the middle of an IVF cycle where I am doing at least twice as well as my last one six months ago. I started DHEA right after that failed IVF. So, I am inclined to give it at least some of the credit. The other thing that has changed is we added one amp of LH to my mix of stims. I think that has also helped.
