Hi girls,
I've not really been on for a while either as we had a bit of bad news at our appointment last week and I was pretty upset so needed to get my head around what we've been told. I knew from the day DH and I got together that we would probably have to have help to conceive as he had had issues in a previous long term relationship. So I had my mind set on the fact we'd need icsi but I naively assumed I was fine. Then about a month ago I asked the doctor to let me have an amh test as I figured we would need this to be referred for treatment, I got the results but my doctor didn't know how to interpret them but she said they were low but didn't know any more than that.
Anyway so we had to wait until the appointment last week to find out what they meant for us, the nurse we saw was very friendly but also very direct and said my result means our chance of ivf working for us is less than 10% which left me pretty gutted. I've got another test in a week or so for fsh levels, the nurse said she can give us a better idea of what our chances of getting pregnant via ivf are and whether we think they are high enough to warrant even trying ivf. At the moment my result is too low for us to qualify for funded treatment although they may reconsider if the next test results is much better. On Top of this DH admitted he had only just given up smoking (he only smoked 2-4 per day) and she said we wouldn't be able to have nhs funding until he had been smoke free for at least 6 months so even if they change their mind about me, we have at least a 6 month wait for funding now anyway.
Been a pretty bad week, but we're looking at all our options, have considered going abroad or maybe to another clinic which specialise in low amh... so at the moment we just don't know what we're gonna do!!

Sorry for the long post, hope things are good for both of you and that Emma your 2WW is going quickly.

Thanks guys, I have everything crossed for my next test and hope they change their mind about our funding!

Emma amh is a test of your ovarian reserve, which is basically how many eggs you have left. Apparenlty peope with low amh repond poorly to ivf as they generally won't produce as many eggs as most people during stims which means the chance of have a fertilisaed egg of the right quality is much lower as you don't have as many eggs to begin with. Hope that makes sense.. did you not have an amh blood test then for treatment at Derriford?

Hi guys how are you both doing? Emma is your 2WW nearly over now, you must be so excited I really hope you get your :BFP:

I'm feel much better, less stress about everything definatly as DH and I have decided to go ahead and pay for a cycle at Derriford for now. I've spent so much time looking into other clinics and comparing success rates and trying to decide what to do and after all that we have decided it will be much easier and much less stressfull (and cheaper) to just go to Derriford as its the closest clinic. Almost everyone who has been there seem to only have good things to say about them so I'm sure we'll be in safe hands.

So now I'm putting my energy into trying to get as prepared as possible so that we have the best chance possible at Plymouth. DH has completly quit smoking, we've stopped drinking (too much :) ) and we're tyring to eat more healthily too. I'll be up there this week probably for my scan and then we're gonna get the ball rolling with our first ICSI I'm actually really excited and looking forward to getting started after Christmas now :happy: .

Hope your both having a good weekend

:xxx:

Sorry to hear you both had BFN from Ocean this will be my first time going through this at Ocean am just hoping it works first time. I am confused though about whether the results are dependent on the clinic or just bad luck? Do you really think it is clinic related?
If you change clinics and say go to London is it a problem with all the travelling etc especially having the scans and that as you generally have them close together. or do you think going private at Ocean is better?
There is so much to think about and it's really interesting knowing what everybody else is thinking who is and has gone through it. Hope it all works out for us regardless where we get treatment. :)

We dont qualify for any funding as Dh has children. Our problem is failed vasectomy reversal. We are just having a FET cycle @ CRGH London with our frosties from Ocean. Poss ET Jan 23rd. This certainly is a drain on the finances. By the end of this cycle we'll be up to around 17k, i think, so this 1 has to work!!! x
