Level came back at 0.33 and I'm sad and devasted. Nurse told me I'm at the bottom of the scale, might confirm when I get ultra sound scan that I may not hve any follicles, in April my day 21 revealed I didn't ovulate

Any success stories with such a low amh number

Was going to do icsi before this test but now feel like why bother now cld be throwing away lots of money down the toilet!!

...and I will be 11wks pregnant on Saturday, so yes, there's hope! If you tell us a little more about yourself (like age, highest FSH, TTC history) and ideally choose a posting name to help us keep track of who's who, there are a lot of folks on this board that can help with some suggestions moving forward. Good luck!

My FSH was only .4 when I had success, so not much higher than yours when I had success. I now have an AMH of .2. I still respond just as well as I did when my FSH was .4. These numbers are variable and I would not put too much weight on them. Really, the test is how well you do on the stim drugs. However, even if you do not respond to one protocol does not mean you will not respond to another. For instance, I did not respond in a cycle a few months ago except for 1 follicle. The next cycle I was supposed to have 5 mature and about 10 total eggs(retrieval was botched so that is another issue). So, I absolutely would not give up hope.

Age is the best predictor of quality. You may just have a reduced quantity. Do you mind if I ask how old you are?

Also, let me add (just in case you go crazy googling like I did when I first got this diagnosis)--almost all of the information on the internet is old. There are even sites saying you can't really get pregnant when you have an FSH over 10, which is absoutely ridiculous (mine was 18 and there are many people with far higher FSHs on these boards that have gotten pregnant(even 100)). Also, the recent studies indicate that low AMH and high FSH really just predicts quantity in terms of response to IVF meds, not quality.

The one thing I would make sure of is that you go to a doc with a lot of experience treating poor responders. I would also make sure they have good statistics. I would also move relatively aggressively.

I think us girls with high FSH can find success, but sometimes it does take us more tries just because we need more tries to get more eggs.

Also, if you can add where you are located it may help people point you in the right direction for some low AMH/high FSH friendly/experienced REs.

I'm sorry you're crushed--but keep on sluggin'. These tests are NOT the be-all and end-all. I have had VERY varied results with repeated AMH tests. See the post right above here.

HUGS!!!!!

I know when my sister was told that she had a AMH of .2 and and AFC of 2 she felt like she had been handed a death sentence. She and I both went through a crazy period of reading everything we could online...

She is now currently 18 weeks pregnant with a healthy baby that was conceived naturally.

Don't give up hope! There are quite a few success stories here with a number like yours. : )
