I'm sorry for the long post below, but I figure there is such a range and wealth of experience on here that you could all help me workin out what questions to ask at my next appointment which is next week.
We got really bad news at my final results appointment, I'm 32 and as well as low AMH of 2.3 I have high FSH of 22.5 (NHS won't consider you for IVF if your AMH below 6 or FSH above 10. Even my consultant wasn't expecting such high FSH results and seemed genuinely surprised and saddened for me. Charts always have a good temp rise after ovulation, ovulation sticks do give me an ovulation result, and my day 21 progesterone test was high enough to suggest ovulation had occurred too! Despite his he said with my bad results I'm unlikely to be ovulating.
He said I'm definitely not eligible for NHS IVF, as it is so unlikely to work, because at levels that high I'm unlikely to have ANY response to even the highest doses of drugs. At that particular appointment we said we might still try privately, and he said he understood our need to do so, but sort of gently said its not likely I would get any eggs. My scan in investigations did show 4 follicles one side and 5 the other. We have been TTC for 14 months with very well timed BD. Husband is fine it's all me.
So... He said he would give us another appointment in 2 weeks for us to go away and think and come back with all our questions. He suggested donor eggs are going to be our only chance
I'm lost to what to ask. What would you all ask? I want to exhaust all questioning that might be useful to me. Is it worth asking about clomid? Why on earth do I look like ovulating if he says I'm probably not? I've read about testing hormones at different points in the cycle, not just day 3, to get a better picture of your cycle, should I do this?
Thanks all xxx
