how did you meet your hubby? We've been together a couple of years. We knew on day 2 that we would get married!!!!!!!!!
Hey Dr. H,

so what is an AMH test and how do you know if you have a low reserve? I mean how would you go about finding out? My husbands favorite place in the world is Australia! we had a trip planned for this New Years but it just didnt work out, hubby says its the best New Years in the world! We met on an online dating service called Match.com, we moved in together after 3 months and engaged after 8 months. We got married in St. Lucia last October!

Welcome back MalaMae! What a sweet, romantic story of how you guys met! Talk about destined! I met my ex boyfriend when we were in a friend's wedding together. It 'almost' worked out... but he never popped the question after 2 years and he was becoming a control freak, so I left! So, 'almost' doesn't count. hehehe Quite glad I left or I would have never met my current hubby!

So glad to hear you are going for a second opinion! Sometimes you just need that. I truly believe that one doctor cannot know everything and if he says something won't work, you should find somebody who can show you that it can! Hopefully you will find the help you need.

Elpha, I'm taking CoQ10 for improving the egg quality. I think it has overall benefits for the whole body, just like the royal jelly and the maca.

Dr.H, welcome! I have low AMH (6 pmol), and when they told me the results felt like the whole world crushed on me. But then read a lot of success stories with natural conceiving. It's pretty new test, so they don't have all the answers. My doctor told me that the women with low AMH are poor responders to IVF, but gave no answer for natural conceiving.

Sloan, have a great time in Whistler! If it doesn't happen until then, you may actually conceive there while you're relaxed

My story: I'm from Macedonia (Europe) and hubby flew from Toronto for a wedding (8000 km one way just for a weekend!!), I was the maid-of-honor and that's how we met. Nothing happened, but he says he already knew I was the one and said "I'll come back for you", I said "Yeah, sure u will" (didn't believe him). Couple of months later he did (we talked on phone/skype every day), I realized I'm in love with him as well. Then I vistied him in Toronto (after no seeing him 6 months- that was hard) and we decided we should get married. 6 months later we got married in Macedonia, 7 of his friends came over. I organized the wedding in a month.
Aww Mal! thats so awesome!!! Do you miss Europe? I was to go to Spain sooo bad! So what is AMH?

Hi everyone. Sorry, I've been MIA from this thread since posting my intro. I love reading how everyone met their OH/DH. MalaMae, that is such a romantic story! DH and I met through mutual friends so there isn't much to our story.

DrH, I'm curious about amh too. I am off to google it.

I'm considering consulting a RE as well. We've only been TTC for a couple of months, but we were NTNP before that and so far nothing.

Thanks girls i do miss home, especially miss that you can walk everywhere there, good natural food and life is slower. Anyway Toronto has its good side
So AMH stands for Anti-mullerian hormone and it measures the ovarian reserve. It's pretty new test an they don't have all the answers. It costed me $150 and it's just a blood test.

Hello Ladies,

I'd love to join this thread if you'll have me! I'm 31, DH is 29, we've been married almost 5 years and this will be my 8th cycle trying. Well... really first three months were more like NTNP since I had the craziest work schedule ever and was never around. I decided to join this forum because I'm starting to get a little sad and frustrated after the past 6 or 7 months and still no BFPs.

We're trying SMEP for the first time this cycle... I'm currently on CD11 and started doing OPKs yesterday. I've never tracked anything before so I have no idea when to expect O. I'm just beginning this journey but I've been wanting to start TTC since last summer and DH thought we should wait until spring because of my crazy work schedule (I'm in the Navy). So, now I'm on shore duty and have plenty of time to BD but no luck thus far.

Also, not to sound crazy or anything but I'm starting to wonder if maybe this is karma for me... I got preggo at 22 with a guy a had been dating a month, he went psycho when he found out I was preggo and I wasn't really ready, so I had an abortion. I've never wanted children until about a year and a half ago and now that I want this so badly, I feel like is my punishment. I've always regretted that abortion and so... karma.

Sorry to be so depressing... I am happy to be here with you ladies and after reading all your stories, you give me hope and make me not-quite-so-sad anymore.

Interesting story. I guess things are turning the way they should be.

Man, what a long day and I am about to strangle hubby! He invites a bunch of people over for a bonfire and dinner tomorrow night and just tells me this morning! The house is a mess, I had a super late night at work because of an event (7 am til 9:30 pm) and I come home and he did nothing I asked!!! My Mom and her boyfriend are coming to help us install the new water softener tomorrow, but hubby has a hair appointment in the AM... so I guess I get to do everything! Grrrrrr!!!!

Then wouldn't you know, looks like I am potentially ovulating even earlier than last cycle according to my OvaCue. Today is what it predicts high fertility and tomorrow is peak fertility meaning I should more than likely ovulate Sunday or Monday. He fell asleep before we could BD last night... I got home tonight too late and he was asleep... And well, with our house being full of people tomorrow isn't looking good! I told him maybe we could have a quickie before he goes to his hair appointment. Didn't tell him I might be O'ing. He still thinks next weekend because that was what I thought.

It is awesome that the Pregnitude is noticeably working, just stinks that we could miss it. I wasn't fully believing the Ovacue until I saw my vaginal reading tonight. Super low, which as they explain is what happens when progesterone backs off significantly to make way for the estrogen peak that induces ovulation. My reading dipped drastically!

Anyhow... I am exhausted and that is causing me to ramble on! Zzzzzzzzzz

Hope all is going good with you ladies!

Elpha, it's ok if you miss a month. Don't stress yourself too much. That's the mistake I was doing until recently. We even lost will for sex, we stopped enjoying it, everything was about baby making. Now finally I woke up and is really hard to change back to how we were. Don't make that mistake.
Stress is not needed when ttc-ing. It just won't work.
Try your hardest to keep the spontaneosity.

I called my obgyn in Macedonia and she said "the only ones that are getting pregnant are the one that don't want to"
Apparently by stressing ourselves, our bodies are producing some hormones (or whatever it is) to help our body deal with the stress and it blocks the body to concieve (the body thinks it's not the right moment for that). (I got very nice explanation from hubby- he has Bachelor in Human Biology, but I forgot the exact words/terminology he used, so this is my simple interpretation).
That's why I had to take a BIG step back and see what have I done for the past 2 years.
Don't do my mistake.
Concentrate now on your diet, dealing with your PCOS and have fun in bed

Sorry, I don't want to sound like I'm preaching you, but I don't want to see anyone here go through the same. I wish I realized this 2 years ago.
