so i got my AMH (Anti Mullerian Hormone Level) back and they were very low. I am now being referred to the lister clinic to see a specialist. I am 27 and i have been crying eber since I got the result this afternoon. Has anyone else got a low level result and then gone on o get a ? I really feel in need of some hope at this point. God knows how I am going to get through the next week until my next appointment?? Im so confused now. My day 3 FSH levels were normal and I have read that the AMH test is new and not always accuate but I feel like I am just tryng to convince myslef that all is ok?? Any replies, as always would be very much welcome. Im in bits at the moment
My AMH was low (1.9) but FSH was normal. The AMH just means that the egg collection may be low. On egg collection, I had x4 (remember you only need 1 ...) I now have x2 embies on board, both of which were grade 2 and am on the 2 week wait (torture).
Don't give up, you may not have a huge amount of eggs but at 27 the quality of your eggs will be very good .
I had a lowish AMH of 6.11, with normal day 3 FSH results (aged 35). I fell pregnant naturally after 18 months TTC while waiting to start IVF. No other problems were ever identified, apart from a slightly short LP and a bit of endo. As KMor said, your eggs will still be of excellent quality because of your age, so really don't panic about a low AMH just yet - I've heard of lots of people getting pregnant one way or another with levels much lower than mine. It really is quite a new test and I don't think they have accurately identified 'normal' scales just yet. Best of luck!
I'm sorry to hear about your result. My AMH is 7.27 so i went on a high dose for my first IVF. I responded poorly but managed to get 3 embies which were all of a good enough quality so I've learned that quality rather than quantity is the main thing and a low AMH does not mean low quality. I have yet to get my BFP but am hopeful
I know its really upsetting but it still is possible. It's better that your clinic knows now so they can tailor your drugs to maximise chances. Wishing you lots of luck. xx
Just to let you know that I had normal day 3 fsh but did not have the amh test. Like Maz said - I was put on the wrong protocol and that resulted in a cancelled cycle due to poor response (I only got 1 follicle) which indicates low egg reserves (the amh tests would have given this info before I started). I was oversurpressed by the long protocol I was on. The whole thing was such a waste of time (I am 37 and time is a major issue for me) - not to mention all the inconvenience! Try not to lose hope - my clinic are still hopeful that with the right protocol (that doesn't supress me so much) I can get pregnant even though my egg reserves are low. Good day 3 fsh indicates good quality eggs are left and it does only take 1!!! Your clinic will be likely to give you the right protocol straight away which will hopefullly help you on your way to a BFP very soon. I have read success stories online - others have needed the short protocol and got BFPs.
