So remember how we have MFI and I'm OK... Remember how IVF is supposed to be the answer if I can just get to retrieval... I got back the results of my Friday blood test and my FSH level was 14. My mind is spinning...
My FSH level was 7 in June. How could this change so quickly?
The doctor didn't seem very concerned. He said that this test might be predictive as my ovaries look good on ultrasound. So it might just indicate that in six months my eggs will be reduced. Oh good, that's a relief!!!
Can I even be successful with IVF and such a high FSH level? Should this change my protocol? Should I start planning for a childless life?
I took this blood test after being off BCP for seven days after being on them for a month. Might this have skewed the results?
I can't believe I wasted all that time with that ass-clown doctor.
Where do I go from here? What do I do? Help! Do I just cycle in May and hope for the best?
My email to the RE -
Google searches indicate that an FSH level of 14 is much more dire than what was indicated in our meeting today, so I'm confused. This is new to me as my FSH level was much lower (~7) in June. Why would this have changed so drastically? Should I be worried about my chances of success with IVF? Please let me know when you receive the Inhibin B test results. Thanks
And his response -
Google searches often can mislead…
Suffice to say that the AFC is the key.
I have a few pts with FSH of 100 or more that have pregnancies. The key is eggs and reserve. The issue is not the FSH number.
So I guess I'll trust and see what happens...
