Low AMH at age 29 with normal FSH

I have just received my AMH result which is 4.5 my FSH was in the normal range and all other hormone blood tests have been normal. I have periods every 26-28 days. Reading online I'm not sure if I'm eligible for NHS funded ivf? I've seen an NHS consultant who recommended the AMH due to small ovaries on scan and currently awaiting a laporscopy (going private as it's a 8 month waiting list on NHS - but with same NHS consultant), following which my consultant letter indicates we will move down the lines of IVF quickly as there is no waiting list for IVF. Does this mean im eligible? I read online AMH needs to be 5.4 or above for NHS ivf?

Hi Rose2303. Basically, your consultant seems to have accepted you for IVF. With in range hormones you should stimulate OK, but with low AMH maybe not many eggs will be retrieved, but worth giving you a good shot. Good luck. I will be thinking of you. Diane

Would it not be the CCG choice rather than the consultant though?

Hi. Perhaps consultant has applied and as your FSH Is OK then fingers crossed. Diane

The rules are different in different ccgs so be careful researching online. I agree with Diane that it sounds as though your consultant has accepted you. Good luck x

Hi Rose, although you have low AMH, you have age on your side. I wasn't accepted initially for NHS funding as I had a low AMH for my age, at the time my private consultant said he would much prefer to treat someone at my age with a low AMH rather than someone in their 40s with a high AMH. Think it was the quality over quantity balance! xx

Hi, when you say initially, were you later accepted? What was your AMH if you don't mind me asking?

Hello, my AMH is lower than yours (if 4.5 was your result) and we were accepted for nhs funding. From your post it certainly sounds like you’ve been accepted too.

My consultant just advised us to lower expectations at egg collection, we were told that 6 eggs would be good for us, which I took as a blow but hopefully age will mean better quality eggs.

I asked my consultant about taking DHEA and co-q10 which he said he wouldn’t routinely advise but would support me taking them if I’d done my research. So, if you haven’t already maybe have a chat about supplements with your clinic.

Best of luck lovely, sounds like you have a great team at your clinic x
