@curlygirlp:  was your vitamin D levels checked?  If they are low, then it can artificially lower your AMH (meaning it is truly higher than test results show).

I am sorry to hear that you are dealing with this. Personally with that low of an AMH coupled with your age, I would go straight into IVF. How are your other levels such as your FSH and your AFC? Other hormone levels can also factor into this decision as well.

I had my AMH levels tested in 2020 at age 41 and had a score of 0.35, which I believe falls in the “very low” category.

I underwent three rounds of IUIs with no success, and was about to start IVF at age 42 when I found out that same month that I had conceived naturally. I’m now in week 28.

For what it’s worth, the fertility clinic I was going to had recommend that I take the Theralogix brand Ovasitol Inositol Powder Supplement, which supposedly helps with ovarian health / egg quality. I’d been taking this for maybe 2-3 months before I conceived and discontinued at 12 weeks of pregnancy. 

Best of luck to you!!!

@brooklyngal:  Do you have PCOS? I have neither PCOS nor low AMH but I am “old” (38) and willing to try any supplement that’s effective. I’ve read in It Starts with the Egg that it may not be advisable for non-PCOS women to take it but if it helps with egg health…maybe I’ll chat with my clinic and give it a try!

@curlygirlp:  Yep, this is my very first child! I am so excited and feel so lucky! 

I got off birth control (after being on it for about two decades) in August 2019, and got married the following month. My husband and I didn’t start TTC until February 2020 because I had scheduled surgery for my thyroid cancer in Jan 2020.

So it took us about 13.5  months to conceive. My then-GYN wanted me to try naturally for 6 months before going to a fertility specialist. I ended up conceiving naturally, but at the time I would have preferred to start seeing a fertility clinic right away because it felt like I had “wasted” 6 months trying on my own…  When you go to a fertility clinic they run so many tests on you (and in my case, I needed a quickish outpatient surgery to remove a polyp) before you even get started on any treatments that I wished then that I had already gotten those squared away…

@tomatotoes:  I do not have PCOS and took it without any problems!

To be honest, I took a slew of other supplements as well, and also underwent acupuncture treatments that support fertility. 

If you search the Weddingbee thread called “Any starting out recommendations? Older TTC” you’ll find there a photo list of the supplements I took (recommended by my fertility clinic) and the number of acupuncture treatments I had. Also some tips from other ladies who were a little on the older side. 

The supplemental stuff definitely was not cheap, but I don’t regret spending the money!

I’m so sorry you’re dealing with this….There is a mom in one of my Facebook baby groups who had an AMH of 0.2 at age 37. She was told her best shot to conceive would be with donor eggs. She ended up conceiving spontaneously while they were gearing up to do IVF after about 1.5 years of trying. 

The next part may be triggering–talk of conceiving easily.

 

Personally I had an AMH of 1.1 at age 29. This would not be considered low if I was 40, but it is definitely low for my age. I will likley be somebody who can’t have children in my late thirties. I was fortunate to have a surprise pregnancy from a one-time oopsy at age 24. I didn’t have my AMH tested at the time, but I would guess it was normal. Then, at age 29, it took us 6 cycles of actively trying, including a miscarriage, with an AMH of 1.1 (considered low-normal). I know that is nothing compared to what many people go through (my heart goes out to people struggling with infertility, the sadness has got to be unbearable). I share this to describe that, in my experience/observation, the lower the AMH the longer the time to conceive. Either that or it’s due to age. The upside is that it is possible to conceive with low AMH, it just may take longer.

I was diagnosed with low amh about a year into our TTC journey. It was not for the faint of heart but we did ultimately conceive after three years, 6 failed IUIS and 5 rounds of IVF. I was 31 when we started trying and 35 when I gave birth . I agree with the poster that said skip straight to IVF. there are a ton of good Facebook groups with useful info.
