Well my 2nd RE told me that by my fsh being 15 & having a low estrogen chances are that my eggs are pretty much of low quality & that he doesn't think that meds can do anything for me. So, in that case he doesn't suggest I even try clomid, IUI, IVF or anything. Now what?

I am really sorry that this is happening to you.  The obsticals we encounter sometimes are just so unfair.  Although I have not been told what you have, I was able to try IVF & my embryos just didn't implant.  I have gone through it 4X's & now about to approach the use of donor eggs.

If I could I would like to recommend a book for you.  The title is "INCONCEIVABLE" by Julia Indichova
This is a true story about what she encountered trying to get pregnant with high FSH.

Best Wishes to you!!  We are all here for you.

I am so sorry for what you are going through. You don't say how old you are, but your odds depend more on your age than your fish. It's much easier for a younger wiman to get pregnant with a high fsh than for someone older. I don't know the exact statistics but if I were you and were under 34 I would try to conceive on my own. I have heard the book cricket recommended is great. If you are 40+ I don't think you have no chance of getting pregnant with your own eggs but your odds are lower.
I was 39 with an FSH of 12.7 and doctors gave me little hope. I got pregnant nAturally within a month or two of not using protection!  But when I was 38 and single, I had an FSH of 11.7 and did a freeze cycle with donor sperm. Even with the most aggressive ivf possible, I only produced two eggs. What I leaned from this, and further research, is that you probably won't respond as well to ivf meds if you have a high fsh, but it only takes one good egg to get pregnant and you never know when it might show up. Your FSH is not off the charts; I think youncould easily have another good egg!
Sorry for all the typos on this iPad. Good luck to you.

Kricket & Allip77-

Thank you so much. Well I am 37 years old & I guess I just really thought I had time. Right now I am going to step back and talk a little more to my regular ob/gyn. The RE suggested I have surgery to remove some fibroids, he thought for me to try naturally that would help.

Thank you for all of your encouraging words & I think I will try to pick up that book.
