Thanks for all the positive vibes and feedback. We will start again with the prep medication next week and I am positive about things but also realistic.

Hey. Hope you are well. I personally don't have any experience here. But a friend does. She didn't want to take any risks. So she went for IVF. And it worked like a charm for her. Maybe you should talk to your doctor about it. Things will work out im sure.

Hey, there! I'm really sorry to hear about your situation. A low reserve is a bit of a worry. You've got hope, though. Don't give up so easily. You can always opt for assisted conception. They also have the options of providing donor eggs. That could be the ideal solution. Either way, sending you the best of luck and lots of baby dust! It's never too late. 38 is a young age. IVF and IUI are common among these methods. They could be your best shot. You should begin by visiting a fertility clinic. They will advise you with the best possible solution.

Hey there! I hope you are feeling better. So a low reserve is nothing to worry about. There are many great options for you to conceive with, but the best option for you is IVF. You can even consider IVF with DE eggs. Many of my friends have conceived with the help of IVF, so I can assure you that it's safe and successful. Just make sure you are opting for a clinic with a high success rate. Clinics play an important role in these treatments, These treatments are quite complicated and risky. So it's important to have well-experienced doctors by your side. Other than that you have to stay strong and positive. Negative thoughts and stress can have a bad impact on your body. Just take care of yourself, keep a healthy diet and do some exercise daily so your body can stay active. Stay blessed! Good Luck!

just got the news last week, Low egg quality with low AMH 1.7ng/ml, I am 41 I thought there was still hope. But I was told the only chance to get pregnant was through IVF, which I am not so keen. I have been trying to find information about improving egg quality and AMH levels, but there is not that much.
I came across the product called Ovance on the website "advancedfertilitysolutions.com". The problem is that I cannot find any reviews in forums or anywhere else on the internet.I have sent an email asking for some scientific publication but I have heard nothing.
As anyone heard about anything about this or is just a scam?

Unfortunately I don't know a thing about the mentioned product. Because AMH levels stay basically stable throughout a cycle, the blood test can be performed at any time. A typical AMH level for a fertile woman is 1.0–4.0 ng/ml, but, depending on age, many women will be higher or lower than this range. Here's what my dr at bio texcom says, treatments to improve the health of eggs may include:
The increase in stimulating drugs to obtain more eggs;
Addition of androgens and growth hormone in patients who are defined as poor responders;
Use of PGS of embryos for selection of the healthiest embryo:
Donor eggs as a really last option. Could you please update?? :hugs:

Hi there! I should say that the quality of a woman’s eggs is much more important in creating a healthy embryo. The reason for this is that the egg does most of the work in accepting the DNA from sperm. and facilitating the mix of genes resulting in the creation of an embryo. As maternal age advances, the percentage of chromosomally abnormal eggs increases. reducing the chance of creating a healthy embryo naturally. There is also growing evidence that low ovarian reserve is associated with poor egg quality!! A past history of endometriosis and ovarian surgery may also reduce egg health and quantity. The investigations for egg health include an AMH blood test which is a measure of ovarian reserve. In the setting of IVF low AMH may be related to poorer pregnancy outcomes. Egg quality may also be assessed during the IVF process by observing the capacity of an embryo to grow to the blastocyst stage. Firstly, a doctor is the one who actually knows the details of a particular case. so one should trust him on the treatment to follow to achieve pregnancy. Egg donation though offers high success rates in women. as the quality of donor eggs is considerably high.

I'm with you. There are lots of reasons why a fertility clinic might be a good choice. Let's say you're having trouble getting pregnant, and so far your gynecologist has given you advice. Maybe he's run a blood test for hormones. or asked you to record your BBT for a couple of months. At the same time, your dh has been checked out by a urologist. When it comes time to diagnose the problem and suggest solutions, you may wish there were a single doctor you both could see. That's where the infertility specialist comes in.Infertility treatments can cost many thousands of dollars and involve strong drugs or hormones. It can also be an emotional roller coaster. Knowing your limits will keep you from being talked into some new procedure that you really don't want and can't afford. When it's time to choose a clinic, do thorough research ahead of time. Keep in mind that some fertility centers that looked great several years ago may have had a lot of turnover in staff and may have gone downhill in quality. But the numbers give you a place to start.
