AMH Query???

Hi all - just a quick question, not sure if Diane can help???

We have been given the dates for our next round of treatment, starting in December with egg collection provisionally in January. The nurse over the phone told me my AMH levels are 8.3, adjusted levels are 5.8. Is it the 'adjusted' figure that is my AMH?

My previous result was 6.1 but I have no idea if this was the adjusted figure or not. I'm just checking as our result determines the protocol and though I suspect that the correct figure is 5.8 I am holding out some hope that maybe the 8.3 figure is correct and that AMH fluctuates?

Thanks for reading and any advice x x x

I had two tests done for AMH one private one through NHS One was 13.2 one was 11.2 I asked why this was and consultant told me that diff labs mark diff not sure if maybe diff people mark diff too or maybe uve done something and managedto raise it xo

Thanks Sam, I don't have another appointment now until December so there's no one I can ask and I don't like to bother them over the phone about something I can't change. I just hope it's not too low to affect our treatment. Keeping everything crossed! Hope you and bump are still doing well :) x x x

Thank you for your reply :) I know it's a low number but I'm hopeful the dip doesn't mean anything too bad and that it doesn't drop any further x x x

Don't worry mine is low to and I have been assured by my clinic that we shouldn't be looking at the numbers too much as the tests are done to choose a treatment plan. Xx

Hi MommaBear16. Clinics do differ in their calculations, but with either reading your level is low but usable. They may consider that you have a short protocol or mild IVF to protect your ovaries. Hope all goes well when you start. Diane

Thanks Diane :) They said if it was 5.3 they would go with a short protocol but as it's 5.8 I guess we're going for long protocol again! x

Hi MommaBear16. Why not speak to the embryologist and see what he/she would recommend?? Diane

Thanks Diane. As we're NHS we don't get to meet our embryologist until the day of egg collection. We have a consultant but we're not due to meet with them again now either. I always get the impression that I'm bothering the nurses when I ring them so I end up coming on here instead haha

Hi Hun. I was 5.5 and told mine was low so on short protocol and injections of 350 international units when I start to help me. The nurse did said don't focus too much on it. My FSH was 6.8 and she said that was good! Hope all goes well when you start. I'll be starting in 3ish weeks eeek x

Thanks KeeKee... I wonder why each clinic is different?! It makes it difficult to understand. Do you know when you will start your treatment yet? x x x

I'm just awaiting my planning appointment, but hopefully November if we are lucky.xx
