***remember I'm POF since 27!***

I've called my RE...I've asked them to reevaluate me! We are still planning our FET (1 frostie) in October...but since January I have had regular and I mean better than even when I was a teenager cycles, with (TMI) CM and everything!! I'm definitely not getting my hopes up, I mean my last FSH test was 72...but I guess I'm just curious as to why everything seems to be "normal"!

Is this silly of me? Should I just be happy to not have to take my HRT or use contraception (no tubes)?

I keep telling myself not to expect anything but it's just too enticing not to look into...curiosity...one of my downfalls! Lol!

Would you look into it? If things looked good would you or should you go for an OE IVF? (it's just so much cheaper than a DE cycle). And only having 1 frostie ....Urgh...I just feel I don't know, scared, nervous, anxious that one won't be enough! I so want more babies!! Okay I'm rambling...what would you ladies do?

All my best!

Maybe worth getting some basic tests done - if anything it'll give you peace of mind about moving forward with your frostie. I am early 30s with DOR and I always had cycles like clockwork, positive ovulation tests each and every month, borderline high FSH, but still my chances with my eggs were less than 5%.

But otherwise I agree. No harm in checking out whether you could do OE IVF. I have had away more
CM this year but irregular cycles and I have had the same yearning... But I'm 43!!!(ttc 20 yrs does tend to mess with sanity!)
Good luck and keep us posted

This happened to me too; it was like pg had reset my body to a younger me somehow LOL. I had my first two (and only ever) natural pregnancies at 35-36yo after the twins were born, in the first year postpartum and while still nursing (pumping full-time). I had a chemical and a late first tri loss as a result, though . I have to say, I was relieved, as I would not have ever wanted my DE/DS kids to feel less than in any way, and I was really afraid what their reaction would be, since we are "tell." Anyway turns out I didn't have to worry about it. If I'd had no tubes then (I've since had them removed in our quest for #3, as there was scar tissue in the way), I would never have turned back to my own eggs - and we weren't trying, just randomly had sex like, oh, twice and got pg twice (this after YEARS AND YEARS AND YEARS of timed intercourse and IUIs ). Since IVF w/ OE is NOT CHEAP either, I would totally do the FET and save the money (or credit) you would have spent on that, on a new donor cycle if necessary. I know it basically doubles the expense, but I can't think of anything better to spend money or overextend for, than having kids. Just my opinion...

FWIW, I'm having the same experience again, TONS of cm now following DD2's birth (I'm now 40 and still nursing at 15 months; AF returned about 6 months ago and I feel SOME DAYS like a young girl again...) I would take whatever b/w says with a grain of salt - either try or don't, but I would not put too much credence in the numbers once they've gone high in the past. Again... just my opinion. I don't think temporary variations in FSH (if there even is one), are indicative of higher fertility - just random fluctuations. GL whatever you decide to do!! Hope either IVF OE or your FET work 1str try - I know how hard it is when ttc a sib. Not as bad as not having ANY child, but the heart wants what the heart wants, and it still sucks! Hugs,
Kenny

Funny how things seem to regulate after giving birth. The same seems to have happened for me, too.
I think it is very reasonable to ask your RE what your OE chances would be at this point. Can't hurt to ask. Like you, I went into DOR/POF in my late 20s. I considered exploring what my current reproductive ability would be, but chose to roll the dice with my totsicles. As you know, I am pg after a single FET. Please know that ONE embryo CAN INDEED work! That may be all you need.

About how Lola would feel...etc... And the fear is always lingering, I know what high FSH means, is it worth the gamble? Really? It is an expensive gamble!
I think I am going to get checked out anyway, as y'know October is coming upon us in quick order! I might as well see where my body is at and then move on from there.
Thanks for your input, it's always nice to have someone else to share these fears, concerns, and curiosity with!
All my best!
