    I posted this for you yesterday.

    Hi there, i know to well about being told you have low AMH i was told mine was 0.3 at the age of 26!!!! Devastated!!!

    Only 3 months after this we concieved our beautiful boy naturally, after 2 cycles as we to we're advised IVF was the only option and we had our first apointment booked for the 10th of June 2008, i found out on the 10th of May that i was pregnant.

    After our first was born, i was told not to wait to try and i fell pregnant with our second boy after one night!!! when our first was 9 months old!!
    We are now trying for number 3, and if we are not successful in the next few month's only then will we move to IVF.

    I hope my story gives you some hope

    Have you had your FSH checked at all??

    My fsh was 9.9, but for the life of me I can't remember what my amh was.... but I do remember it was very low. I went to a fertility doc and on my 2nd IUI, I got pregnant. We did get pg once on our own back in March, however I ended up miscarrying. I am currently almost 13 weeks pg, and everything appears to be completely fine. We opted for IUI mainly because I only had 4 follicles on my baseline scan, which would not give a lot of eggs for IVF retrieval, etc. It did work. I am 34 nearly 35 and this is our 1st. GL to you!

    Im pretty sure your FSH can flactuate, i'm not to sure about the AMH. The FSH is the follicle stimulating hormone to release the egg and the AMH is the egg reserve. I have been told a couple of times, once being just yesterday by my doctor that ovaries are like a car engine they can stop and start as they like!!!

    So all of a sudden they may start working again :winkwink: All a bit to confusing if you think too much about it.

    I am 35 and have only been with my partner for just over 12 months. Due to my age we had already discussed the idea of kids and decided that it is definitely what we both wanted and we had set a time frame of approximately two years before we would start trying.

    During a check up I mentioned to my GP that i was planning on having kids but not for a few years. She suggested that i should test my AMH to give me an idea of my fertility.

    When it came back at 8 she told me that was quite low and referred me to a fertility specialist. The fertility specialist tested me again and within 6 weeks it had dropped to 5.2.

    The specialist told me that I shouldnt delay having kids and that I only had a 5% chance of conceiving naturally.

    I wasnt ready to start an IVF program straight away and with the relatively minor chance of conceiving naturally, we decided to stop using contraception.

    I stopped the pill in Sept and after only one cycle i was pregnant.

    I am 8 weeks today and so far everything is going really well.

    Sometimes I wonder how many women out their who never get their AMH checked and conceive naturally quite quickly also have low AMH results yet we wouldnt know because they never get tested.

    I dont think the AMH test result should be taken too seriously. It might give you an indication of your egg reserve but it didnt stop me from getting pregnant within weeks of stopping contraception.

    Hi

    Like the women above I was tested in July when i was considering an egg share scheme for IVF my AMH is 5.3 and i'm 31. I was just about to start IVF in December and had a scan at my induction my Follicle count was just 6, 3 on each ovary.
    The consultant said IVF was the best option. 3 weeks later I'm pregnant my last cycle before IVF.

    Its possible we have sperm issues too so dont lose hope honey. I cried for days when i found out too. Dont give up on your dreams

    Best of luck xxxx

    My AMH is 2. It was only tested because I was an egg donor in the summer for my friend. I have alway got pregnant the first month of trying, and am currently ten weeks.

    With the egg donation, however, I was on the highest stim drugs and still only made three follicles and got only two eggs. Luckily both fertilised and went on to transfer.
