Age - 35 when cycled

Level of amh - 5.4

Number of afc - 12

Number of eggs at ec - 9, with 6 suitable for ICSI

Number of treatments - 1


Dose of drug and long or short protocol - long protocol with menopur 225, stimmed for 12 days. The dose wasn't changed from inital consultation even when
                                                            the AMH result was back, as FSH and AFC were good for my age.   

Anything else you thing is helpful - ended up on cabergoline to prevent OHSS, but I think the Lister have a low threshold for doing this. We had ICSI for very
                                                   severe male factor, and of the 6 eggs used, only 3 fertilized. One then arrested the next day, and had 2 good quality
                                                   embryos transferred at 3 days. Now (very gratefully) pregnant with a singleton.

                                                   I took preconception vitamins, Royal Jelly and co-enzyme Q10 200 mgs, but probably only for about 6-8 weeks before
                                                   treatment.

    I had another missed miscarriage at 7 weeks unfortunately, so unsure how long to wait before I start long protocol of Ivf?

    I will start the DHEA again and will give the royal jelly a go? Good luck everyone

    I'm still only halfway through my pregnancy but I will post so that the information is here for others anyway:

    Age: 38

    Level of amh: 2.49

    Number of afc: N/A

    Number of eggs at ec: N/A

    Number of treatments: See signature

    Dose of drug and long or short protocol: N/A

    I thought I'd post my details to give hope to others - although I hope I don't manage to do the opposite!  After being told several years ago that I would need to use donor eggs due to my low AMH, I went on to have several cycles using my own eggs resulting in extremely good embryos and I even currently have two frozen. However, unfortunately the pressure and stress of treatment got to me and I decided to call it a day in September 2012.

    In February this year I decided to move ahead with my surrogate.  I was down regging (short) to get ready to start treatment in order to get embryos in March.  I had to wait for AF to come so I could start stimms - AF never arrived so I did a test (thinking: 'Oh yes - chortle chortle - as if') and it came up straight away saying 'pregnant'.  So after all the heartache and trauma, it happened naturally for me just 5 months after deciding to call a halt to it all.  I'm now 18 and a half weeks and so far, so good *touches wood* :)

    EDIT: I gave birth to a beautiful, healthy little girl on 2.11.2013,  so all's well that ends well. :)

    This thread is  really good idea. Hope for low AHMer's and FSH'ers is fantastic.
    I'm 41, have AMH of 1.5 (when last tested in sept 2012)! could be worse now and FSH of 9.5. only 3 follicles. I am on day 10 of stimming. No response at my 9 day scan on weds, but am stimming until next Monday and going back to see if anything has improved. I don't hold out much hope but have been doing lots of research on natural cycle IVF and am going to try the Create Fertility clinic in London who specialise with older ladies and low AMH'ers, before I look into DE and Adoption.  Goodluck everyone and keep the positive stories coming...PLEASE!!!

    Hi fellow low amh-ers!

    Just thought I would add my story as this thread really helped me when going through treatment.

    Age-34
    Amh-1.9
    Afc-4
    No of eggs collected-4
    No of treatments-1
    Protocol-short
    Medications-menopur 450, cetrotide 0.25

    My PCT funded me for 3cycles on the NHS, but my consultant would only offer me one cycle as she thought it was basically a waste of time me even trying with my own eggs, and should consider DE. As we were already using DS, we really wanted to try with my eggs.

    We expected hurdles all the way, but my eggs responded well, they found 4! 2 top quality went back (1x8cell and 1x7cell) and now I am nearly 6Weeks pregnant!

    I did also use DHEA and royal jelly and pollen in honey for a year before my treatment began, and I do believe this raised my egg quality.

    So no matter what the doctors say, DON'T ever give up, you WILL get there! xxxx

    Hi,

    I'm 39 and one year and a half ago I was diagnosed with DOR. My FSH was 18 and my AMH 0.16. I was told my chances were very very slim and DE were even mentioned during that first visit. I started taking DHEA (75 micronised), Coq10, wheatgrass, Vitex, Vitamins, nuts, and stopped having coffee and alcohol. I even did 3 sessions of acupuncture though I have to admit I don't have much faith in it. I also tried to meditate every day because I thought it would help me be relaxed.

    Two months later I went for my fist IVF and had a baseline AFC of 2 (day 3). I started five days of Clomid and then 2 days of Gonal F and Cetrotide. I had 5 follicles at ER but only 3 mature. 3 eggs were retrieved and 2 fertilised. I had two good embryos put back on day 2. Right after the ET and while waiting to be allowed to go home my partner and I watched on the laptop some funny comedy stuff we had saved and laughed a lot. We had read a study about an experiment in Israel in which laughter after ET had shown to increase implantation rates. I have no idea if it helped but it definitely felt good.

    It worked on the first try for both embryos and my twin girls are now four months old and absolutely perfect!

    It is possible and trying is always worth it. Doctors can be clearly over pessimistic and very wrong

    I have the feeling all the supplements I took helped, particularly the DHEA. I didn't even tell my doctor since it's not even used in Belgium and was afraid he might not approve. Anyway, it all worked out.

    I would definitely recommend DHEA too - but make sure it is micronised which, as far as I know, you can only get online.

    Hi I had a low amh 0.4! I had 9 eggs 3 good ones had 2 back and now 17 wks pregnant after first ivf cycle. I was told I may not respond to long pro treatment of buseralin and can't remember other drug.I had ohss fluid on lungs and pelvis and blood clots but I'm over all that now and having just the normal pregnancy symtoms so worth it though so don't give up plenty rest and do as the docs say and all will be good in the end xxx o ps I'm having twins x
