Peter,

My partner and I are vigorously saving up for our next IVF treatment, probably around October time. As I am 40 this year, he is 42, I am woried about FSH level. When I was last tested, it was creeping up towards 12. Should I have some blood tests during the time up to October, to check my fsh? Or is it not worth it and should I wait till nearer the time? Can I just get an appointment with the doctor and ask for a blood test for FSH?


Once the FSH goes over 12, can we still be treated?

Many many thanks,

Sam

How close? Anything consistently over 12 usually means that egg quality or number will be reduced.

Yes, just before you start treatment

I doubt it, your clinic would hae to do it for you.

Once the FSH goes over 12, can we still be treated?

Yes, with the potential problems mentioned above

Good luck!

Peter
Many many thanks,

Sam
