Hi, I'm sorry you're facing this. Covid-19 brought lots of problems to people all over the world. And of course, you cannot apply for the expert's help right now. Still the best thing is to get tested well at dr's and get the issue nailed. Here's what to expect~
Ovulation testing- this is a blood test which measures hormone levels to determine whether you're ovulating. Hysterosalpingography will evaluate the condition of your uterus and fallopian tubes. It also looks for blockages or other problems. Ovarian reserve testing which helps determine the quantity of the eggs. Other hormone tests check levels of ovulatory hormones, as well as pituitary hormones that control reproductive processes. Pelvic ultrasound looks for uterine or ovarian disease. Having passed all these tests you together with your dr will get the whole pic of what's going on. Any updates from you so far?

Hi there. I understand your concerns. And I don't want to sound pessimistic, but ''biological clock ticking'' issue doesn't come out from my head..I was in the same boat. Together with my ex partner we ttc for 13 months without joy. When I asked him we'd better visit a fertility expert - He behaved very reluctant. Seems he didn't even want to hear a word about it, so we broke up soon. He left me then at 38, alone and childless. Time passed and I met my dh. He's been quite optimistic all way long. and when the following 15 months ttc didn't brought us results, he was the first to tell ''we need expert's help''. I cannot be thankful enough..
Well, I'm hoping your story won't have those curves. and that your ttc will be much smoother and beneficial than mine. But one should keep the doze of realism. Getting prego at 40 is not the same as at 20..
We finally ended up with undergoing IVF abroad. Shot#1 successful - I'm currently prego with my first ever little one )

Hello and welcome to MedHelp's forums.  Trying to conceive is quite the journey for many.  We'd suggest you work with your ob/gyn first which I'm assuming you have as you know you have low AMH.  However, it is not uncommon to have low amh past forty.  Low amh means a low egg reserve.  Here's a guideline to help determine how low you are:  Very low AMH is usually thought to be an AMH below 1.05 ng/ml, and undetectably low AMH levels are calculated as below 0.16 ng/ml. A low level of FSH (follicle stimulating hormone) can be an additional indicator of a problem with the quantity of a woman’s eggs.  How is your FSH?

Other important questions include how long you have been trying to conceive?  If it has surpassed a time frame in which you can conclude there is a problem, it would be best to consult a fertility doctor for options.  Talking to them does not commit you to spending the money for treatment but you'll know more specifically what is ahead.  Unfortunately, as time goes on, conceiving is one thing that time can run out on as we run out of eggs so you will want to know how quickly you need to expedite the process if you desire a baby.  Also know, there is always a way such as egg donation but that is costly and depends on your finances.

Please share with us your amh level so we can see where it falls in the spectrum.  That would be helpful information.

Here is some general information on amh and fertility. https://www.webmd.com/infertility-and-reproduction/news/20110809/how-fast-is-your-biological-clock-ticking#1

We hope it all works out with you and please come back and keep us updated!
