Re: antimullerian test results are devastating

A little update - dr never did call me back about the AMH results. Very irritating but I am switching insurances and dr's in January anyway, and whatever dr would say really doesn't change our course of action. The situation is kind of weird, the RE I saw actually travels from 2 hours away to my clinic and is only there every couple weeks or so, so no one at the office can really address my concerns. I already have an appt scheduled for another RE on Jan 8, since my insurance is changing on 1/1 and my current doctor will then be out of network.

I started Femara on CD 3-7 this cycle. I went in for follicle monitoring ultrasound today and had 1 excellent follicle and 1 that was a little smaller (18x12). I usually do ovulate anyway, so not really sure the Femara did anything, but we did the trigger shot this morning. I was really hopeful after hearing that I am still producing follicles.

And I should correct something I said in my 1st post - a low antimullerian hormone level indicates low egg quantity, not necessarily low quality.

I'm just glad to still have a little bit of hope again. I apparently still have eggs, and all it takes is one. Thanks for the prayers and please say more and/or send that somehow, some way, a little eggy will implant and stick around for 9 months.

Yay, Sara! Glad there is some hope!

(Thinking I should get this test myself, but too scared )

I was scared to get it too. Not because I thought I was nearing menopause (I've had NO symptoms of that) but just because in my life, if something CAN go wrong, it usually does. The thing about it is, it's not reversible and can't be fixed. Once your eggs are gone, they're gone. So nothing you can DO about it other than just try right now - which you're doing anyway.

SO praying that this is your month Sarah! I had that test too and it was scary. Obviously they are still seeing eggs though so hoping you catch one and it sticks!
