40 and trying naturally - any advice/tips?
« on: 17/09/11, 14:25 »
Hi ladies

I turned 40 in July and since then have decided to try for my second child - yikes.  I am single so using a known donor.  I don't plan to start til Oct and in the meantime I've had my FSH tested (came back at 4. Something) and am having my 21 day test in 10 days.  Assuming this is fine (praying it is) - should I have my AMH tested or wait and see? 

I was lucky enough not to need any treatment 4 years ago - but am a lot older and whilst I was a fitness fanatic 4 years ago I'm in reasonable shape now and we both lead a pretty healthy life!

Really desparate for it to work.
