I am so upset, I just got my AMH test results back after 3 failed IUI's and my level was .34. My Dr. is so non-committal when I ask him about my chances of conceiving with IVF. I had day 3 tests done back in February when we first went to see the fertility specialist-we had 2 previous sperm analysis done so we knew we had a sperm issue and when the results came back from the day 3 test the dr. just told me that everything "looked good" and was "within range" I did not ask for the specific numbers because they really wouldn't mean anything to me anyway. Well now he tells me that my FSH was 9.5 and my estrogen was 76. Why didn't he do more testing then before telling us to try IUI and spending close to $4000 on IUI's? Is it worth trying to do IVF with my eggs or should I consider donor eggs. We don't have much money and I am unsure of what the best option for us would be, I know my meds for IVF would be very expensive, should I even try a cycle or save up for adoption? Please Please Please any help is greatly appreciated.
Hi Mags! Unfortunately, I have no idea what the normal AMH range is. Did you doctor say anything about that? Your estrogen is right on the border. Normal is 25-75, so a 76 is so close that I wouldn't think that's a big deal. Although, they do say that the lower numbers tend to stimulate better. And your FSH is in the "fair" category.What meds were you on for your IUI? And how did you respond?
Determining how to move forward is a very personal decision, and it's hard for anyone here to advice you to go one way or another. I would probably set up a consultation with your RE to discuss not just your chances (I'm sure he has some statistics to share if nothing else), but also to go though how much it will cost and any financing options offered.
