Don’t count yourself out before you even meet with the RE.  I remember all of the googling I did after my initial RE tests for myself and my husband.  I was convinced we would never have a child.  We did end up needing IVF to conceive but with the help of Ivf i now have a 9 month old.

I have VERY low AMH (.1) And high FSH (17Ish) and have had roughly the same numbers for years. In that time I have been pregnant 6 times, three of which were miscarriages, using clomid alone. I have now decided to do ivf to minimize future miscarriages, and ended up with 4 embryos, 3 of which are genetically normal and excellent quality. 

 All of that is to say that your levels don’t mean everything, it’s entirely possible to have a baby or babies with numbers worse than yours.

Good news is your amh isn’t that low and your FSH isn’t that high. You are young, too, which matters say more than those numbers. I definitely recommend avoiding google if you can. In theory, low amh really only tells you how you will respond to artificial hormones (ivf meds). Your AFC (Antral follicle count) at the RE is the best indicator. Assuming you still develop follicles, you *can* get pregnant but it might take a few tries. I did 6 IUIS (all BFN), 4 IVF REtrievals  and fresh transfers (all BFN) before I got pregnant on my first FET. I was your age when I started with similar fsh, slightly better amh but male factor as well. it took me 3 years which isn’t exactly common but not unheard of either. My best recommendation is to jump straight in now while you are young. It’s scary, it’s expensive, it’s heart breaking but I can finally say that I’ve seen the forest through the trees and I know it will be worth in in 5 months when our babe is here. If you’re interested I’m in some fb groups for DOR (technically term for low amh) which are a good resource. Wishing you the best of lucky for a sticky baby soon. let me know if you have any questions about Ivf, IUI or anything else.

camoandglitter :  sorry to hear about your situation, but definitely don’t count yourself out before you start with your RE. We just did ivf in August and honestly it wasn’t nearly as challenging as I expected.

I recommend the book It Starts With the Egg – there are a lot of things that may be helpful to improve amh
