TTC for over 2 Yrs - Ovr 40 with low AMH


So, I'm new to this board. I have 2 grown DDs, but I remarried in Apr 2014 and started TTC right away since DH is childless. After 6 months, I was diagnosed with extremely low AMH. I've done the clomid thing and one cycle of injectables with IUI. I've gotten 2 BFPs (within the last year). The first was ectopic and the second was a MMC at 9 weeks. I actually had to take a pill to complete the loss process on the day after my 41st birthday.

I've been taking multiple vitamin supps for many months (D, E, B, and Omega 3-6-9). Two months ago, I added DHEA, Maca, and Ubiquinol to the supp list.

I had a pos OPK today and for the first time since my injectable cycle, I'm having extensive O pain. So, I'm a little hopeful but only a little because I know my odds are practically non-existent of getting and staying pregnant with my own eggs.

Anyone else older in age, have low AMH, and/or taking tons of supps every day? I'd love to hear your story.

Hi, what have your clinic suggested, is it worthwhile trying iui again or move onto IVF?
Would you consider donor eggs?

At 41 I'd be reluctant to waste too much time with supplements when really IVF will give you far better odds.

My RE says he'll do another IUI if I wasn't to try but IVF is the suggestion. I would consider donor eggs. The issue is the cost. So, DH and I are going to start stashing money away for a trip to Greece for a DE IVF if the next IUI fails. It's going to take us a while to save up the money, but my understanding is that we have a little more time if we're willing to do DE IVF.

I don't mean to dash your hopes but I'm sure IUI isn't really recommend for ladies over 40 as the odds are so low. You might be better putting the money into your ivf fund.
