My RE didn't originally want to test FSH because it's not as sensitive a test as AMH. Glad you're getting your AMH tested. Mine came back undetectable (AMH<.16). Because it was so low, she tested my FSH, which was 7 but she determined it unreadable because my estradial was 150 and anything above 60 invalidates the test (FSH is in a negative feedback loop with estradial so when one's up, the other is down). So all things said and done, 11 isn't great but it isn't bad either. You're in the range (11-19) where you can benefit from IF treatment. Above 20 and you're not a candidate for treatments. Not meaning to sound like a know it all, because that's hardly the case. I'm just quoting my RE.

There are many different opinions on this. My doctor for example chose not to do AMH. She studied under the doc who discovered the test and in his own words he said if he would have known now how that test would be used that he never would have come forward with the information. She asked if based on my AMH results, was I ready to give up and move to donor eggs/adoption.....I said no! I at least want to try!! She agreed and said then we shouldn't even run that test. We already know I have a low AFC and elevated FSH, why even put that negative number out there when we both believe that I am young, and capable of sill becoming pregnant.
Do you have any idea what your Antral Follicle Count normally is? I think that is more of an indicator of your chance of success with IVF.
