    I'm curious if any of you had your gyno or doctor check your hormone panel as you are TTC > 35? I saw a hormone called AMH which is used to give an idea of egg reserve you have (I think high AMH is you have plenty of eggs and low AMH is you have less, but I could have it backwards), but these aren't usually brought up in my regular panel of hormones, and I brought it up with my doctor after much googling. She said she could test for it and I was surprised she didn't already bring it up herself to be proactive for me. So I wondered if there were more hormones like this that I could ask the doctor specifically about to test for. What others have you tested that aren't typically in a regular bloodwork or the typical hormones to test?
