Re: Low AMH Level

  • Thanks @emmasemm and @c-town18 ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ I’m so grateful to have you all in my court. The one with 75 repeats was chromosomally normal so at least there’s that. I’m trying to process it all right now. Probably if they were both abnormal I wouldn’t think as hard about another OE cycle   
  • Hi everyone. My SO and I have decided to go forward with another cycle knowing that I can respond to stims. I really feel uncomfortable using an affected male embryo and I don’t want to become so blinded by an attachment to my own genetics that I don’t give this kid a good start in life. We have enough money for the cycle before we turn to donor eggs so we’re going to give it a shot. I can’t pretend I’m not disappointed by our results but trying to just put one foot in front of the other. Anyway I’m thinking about y’all @Imajin99 and @hopefuljj and I totally want to know the sex of your baby when you get the results @emmasemm!

  • @lucyb1954 I’m so sorry about the results but happy to hear you are moving forward with another cycle!  @emmasemm I could not be more thrilled from your update!!!!  Remember, it’s never too late for a career change;) 
    Me: Hashimoto Autoimune Disease
    Homozygous MTHFR Cr677
    DOR - AMH  .27 High FSH (don't even know how high)
    2 iui's to start - BFN 
    IVF 1 -3 made it do day 5!    2 5AA 1 6BB  PGS results =  all abnormal :(
    IVF 2 - stimmed for 19 days. insanity. Had 5 follicles that looked mature but only 2 contained mature eggs the others were empty.  Nothing made it to day 5
    IVF 3 - added in HGH - 4 mature follicles (had some empties again) 3 made it to day 5/6 for PGS (held for testing with next retrieval
    IVF 4 - Upped my dosage for the first time - Canceled 11 days into sims - looked like 1 follicle and we were afraid it was empty
    IVF 5 - Canceled -  looked like 1 follicle and we were afraid it was empty
    IVF 6 - 3 mature, 2 fertalized 1 made it to day 5 and sent for PGS

    Sent in IVF round 3 and 6 (4 embryos) for PGS testing and got 2 normal embryos!!!  1Boy and 1Girl. Took a little over a year to get those two embryos so demanded all sorts of test prior to attempting transfer. Did EFT, ERA and NK Cells testing.

    FET#1 - Intralipid drips, Prednisone, and did a depot lupron shot before starting the FET protocol
    Chemical pregnancy
    FET#2 - PGS normal boy - BFN
    Natural pregnancy - cycle following the FET2????   Miscarriage at 8 weeks.  viability scan had shown an enlarged yolk sac so I had been warned that it was likely not chromosonally normal :(

  • @lucyb1954- gosh girl, I’m so sorry. Praying so hard for a not effected embaby in your next cycle! It’s such a hard decision but if you have the funds, I see think it’s worth another shot. If you have to do donor, you want to be fully ready!

    @emmasemm- so excited things are looking good!! And I can’t wait to hear the gender either!!

  • @lucyb1954 Oh sorry to hear about the results and I am not too familiar with Fragile X information but seems like you and SO are on top of it and know best.  
    Glad you are trying another cycle as yes you respond and the embryos fertilized.  Hope Utah is a little cooler now.
    I think we are going to do another 2 OE cycles and convert to IUI if its is only 1 which it has been in the last 4 cycles.  Fortunately the next few rounds for this year will have my medication covered at 100% so worth trying with my own especially since we have given my body a few months to rest.  Will keep you all posted once I start probably by next week.

    ME:39 DOR DH:41 No issues Trying since March 2015

    IUI #1-4:  Menopur injectable  - BFNs

    2018 IVF #1-3 converted to IUI due to poor response & drop in E2 - BFN

    2019 IVF #4 converted to IUI due to poor response  BFP - M/C @ 8 weeks

  • Soooooo.... it’s a girl!!!!!!! Beyond shocked! We have six nephews from all our siblings!

    @imajin99 glad to hear you have a plan and are really close to starting your next cycle!

    @lucyb1954 we also set our plan based on leaving enough money for DE but doing OE as long as we had money and my body was handling it. Fx this next cycle builds on what you learnt from last time.

  • @emmasemm ahhhhh! That’s so exciting! Yay!!! Congratulations!!! I would be thrilled with any healthy baby but I do love little girls ❤️

    Thanks @JamieH2000 I think you’re right...we want to be ready for DE if that’s what’s next. More than anything I just want a healthy kiddo. Some people would feel fine transferring the affected embryo but I just can’t reconcile it in my heart. 

    @Imajin99 I’m starting stims late September/early October. I’m saying my prayers that yours go well! How did your medication all get covered? I’m jealous! 


    emmasemmImajin99
  • @hopefuljj oh I am soooo absolutely thrilled.
    As you know, I guessed there was something as you so deftly avoided all the questions!
    And saying something will not change anything - but I also completely understand as this was me two months ago - and even now I don’t want to buy anything “just in case” whereas DH was ready to buy *everything* from day 1 and tell everyone!!!

  • @hopefuljj I’ve been thinking about you and also wondering cuz you have been deftly avoiding the questions! I’m really thrilled for you and I understand not wanting to say anything. It’s hard and then if there’s bad news you have to repeat it etc. I’m sending my prayers your way! I’m not religious so to speak so they’re nondenominational and they can just be well wishes depending on your feelings about them! ❤️❤️❤️

    @lucyb1954 like the others I’m not so familiar with the fragile x part but you are already such an amazing mama!! The selflessness you have just show no matter what road you take for your miracle will be perftely yours! I’m thrilled you had a normie, hoping your next round goes smoothly for u!!

  • Hey everyone - I guess I'll add myself to this post. I was in the IUI post late last year and early this year (all failed) and then in the August IVF post. I just started shots on Monday, below is the protocol.
    About me: I'm 43 and my AMH level is .26, which I know is extremely low. I got bad news 3 weeks ago at my saline appoint that I had only 1 follicle. I had a breakdown in the office (and on the way to work and at work!). That was a major let down, as I had 7-8 six months earlier. Because of this the RE recommended mini stim, which isn't her expertise. SO and I had a long discussion and decided to go with the traditional IVF. 
    Fast forward to this past Monday's baseline ultrasound, I was given the clear to start stims AND clinic now sees 12 follicles!!! They don't know why and how. Now there's tears of joy. I know that this is just the first step and that the number of follicles has nothing to do with the quality of eggs, but it was still somewhat of relief. So here I am day 3 of stims with an estimated ER of 9/20. Trying to keep calm and reduce anxiety, but it's hard. If this doesn't work we will go with the mini stim.
    I've been lurking in this post for a very long time and I'm encouraged by the positive news and the strength you all have to keep going!

    Protocol
    Estrogen for 10 days prior to stims
    AM - 300iu Follistim and PM - 175iu Menopur
    Cetrotide once largest follicle reaches 12.5
    Pregnyl 10k to trigger

  • @emmasemm Pink Pink Pink, congratulations.  I have two nieces and always have so much fun with them. How are you feeling? 

    @hopefuljj Great news, so happy for you. Looking forward to hearing about your ultrasound. 

    @lucyb1954 Good luck with you next cycle!  I am covered for medications through my extended health care plan, it is covered at 80% however when you pay the 20% out of pocket and it exceeds 2,500 in a calendar year then the 100% plan coverage kicks in. And as you all know with max dose that is pretty easy to hit.

    However, AFM, my clinic really wanted me to try a combo minimal stim cycle so I am on day 3 of letrzole and on day 7 will start taking menopur and determine what will be next steps after my scan on tuesday.

    31magnolia Good luck with your cycle! 12 follicles sounds amazing.

    I had my 2nd monitoring appt today. Have 3 follicles over 10mm. No leads, so that's good. I start cetrotide on Sunday night and next appt is scheduled for Tuesday.

  • Thank you ladies so much for your kind words and excitement:).  Just trying to act natural and stay calm until  Wednesday’s scan.  I should be 5w 3 days at that point so not sure what all they would be able to see if things are progressing as normal but just hoping we see whatever we are supposed to see I guess.  I think last time I didn’t get a scan until 6 weeks. 

    @Imajin99 trying something new sounds very promising! Crossing all the things for you!!

    @31magnolia
    Your cycle is sounding very very promising! I can’t even imagine seeing that many follicles!  Wishing you lots of luck!

    DOR - AMH  .27 High FSH (don't even know how high)
    2 iui's to start - BFN 
    IVF 1 -3 made it do day 5!    2 5AA 1 6BB  PGS results =  all abnormal :(
    IVF 2 - stimmed for 19 days. insanity. Had 5 follicles that looked mature but only 2 contained mature eggs the others were empty.  Nothing made it to day 5
    IVF 3 - added in HGH - 4 mature follicles (had some empties again) 3 made it to day 5/6 for PGS (held for testing with next retrieval
    IVF 4 - Upped my dosage for the first time - Canceled 11 days into sims - looked like 1 follicle and we were afraid it was empty
    IVF 5 - Canceled -  looked like 1 follicle and we were afraid it was empty
    IVF 6 - 3 mature, 2 fertalized 1 made it to day 5 and sent for PGS

    Sent in IVF round 3 and 6 (4 embryos) for PGS testing and got 2 normal embryos!!!  1Boy and 1Girl. Took a little over a year to get those two embryos so demanded all sorts of test prior to attempting transfer. Did EFT, ERA and NK Cells testing.

    FET#1 - Intralipid drips, Prednisone, and did a depot lupron shot before starting the FET protocol
    Chemical pregnancy
    FET#2 - PGS normal boy - BFN
    Natural pregnancy - cycle following the FET2????   Miscarriage at 8 weeks.  viability scan had shown an enlarged yolk sac so I had been warned that it was likely not chromosonally normal :(

  • @c-town18 ;@Hopeful_mom ;@hopefuljj thanks! One thing I’m starting to definitely realize is that this whole process is not a science. There are so many things that shouldn't happen but do, and things that do happen but shouldn't. My RE tried to talk me into DE. With an original AMH of .24 she wasn't very hopeful, but she at least let me go through this entire process the way I wanted to.  I'm trying not to ride the roller coaster of emotional ups and downs but this process makes it hard.
