Hi!
Since this is the success board I am sure you are really busy with your little ones but I was wondering if you could briefly describe the steps you took along your journey to have a baby.

Highest FSH?

AMH?

Did you conceive Naturally?

How many IVF/IUI?

How long did the entire process take once you started TTC?

I just want to have some idea of the road my sister will have ahead of her.

Thanks!!

On the "High FSH board". If you do a search over there, and here on this board, too, I think you will find years of stories that will help you. Or, people can add links to their story so they don't have to retype them!

But: I know you are doing all this for your sister. Don't let it consume you too much, OK? (You mentioned on the other board 'going crazy'.) Have your own levels checked, because I know that it's on your mind, but don't let this drag you down. You are both young and have time, a 'three month wait' idea from her RE is not a bad one. As for yourself, I know you have been trying two month but you said you already had a child, yes? That is a great sign in your favor!

Good luck to you and your sister.

Highest FSH? 21

AMH? 1

Did you conceive Naturally? yes

How many IVF/IUI? one IUI January 2010... was waiting to start IVF when got pg naturally

How long did the entire process take once you started TTC? From January 2008-May 2010
Was pg first time november 2008, got pancreatitis and placenta cancer, lost baby... then dx of high FSH and told we had a 1% chance of having a biological baby. Interviewed 12 REs from November-January 2010. Found RE February 2010. Went on DHEA therapy, got uterus straightened out (tilted to the side), and got naturally pg in May 2010. My BFP was on June 1, 2010, the day that should have been my Day 3s for IVF cycle. I had just turned 34 when I got pg.

My journey was short compared to other women on this board. So take it with a grain of salt. There are others here who have much more knowledge, wisdom and courage than I do. But if there is anything I've learned from these women, many of whom were with me on High FSH board, is that miracles do happen for high FSHers... it just takes longer. And for some women here, they've had multiple miracles even with the dx. Good luck!
