Any success stories with over 40TTC?

I have gone through almost all of the testing, less the HSG test.
My results are:
FSH (Day 10) 10.3
A1C 5.4
Prolactin 11.4
TSH 2.420
AMH .29 (And that is VERY low)
FSH (Day 4) 4.8
4 MM follicles
Endo thickness 4.9
Endo type Homogenous

From what my doctor is saying, I have a good chance of getting pregnant, but I am now on my second cycle of clomid.  He said he would be alright trying a more aggressive treatment ie; IUI.  

I started taking DHEA, COQ10, And Vitamin D which are all said to increase your chances.  I feel like time is running out, especially with the low AMH, and I am just hoping that there are success stories with a low AMH and what you did to increase your chances.  Also, are 4 follicles enough?  I have the egg supply score, which he gave a my understanding this is only a fair chance, not a good one.

I appreciate any help, understanding, and hope.

Thank you!!

  • Hi Libellula28!  It’s not clear to me whether you’re open to IVF, but there is a long running Low AMH board over on Infertility and I know there’s have been successes there (not necessarily >40 though).

    I turned 40 last month and am in my TWW for my first FET.  So my “success” is TBD (although I’m not feeling optimistic at the moment :-/) we went straight to IVF because we wanted to PGS test after our *TW* loss at almost 12 weeks last year, we would like more than one, and we and knew time was not on our side (though protocol and lab matter - my best of 4 cycles was two weeks before I turned 40).

  • I'm 39, 40 in a few months and we got pregnant naturally,  due in June.  It's possible when your older,  it can just take longer than you want it to.  This will be our second baby in 5+ years of trying with two early losses.  
  • I love hearing these stories, thank you!!
