Over a year and 3 IVF cycles later my clinic decided to test my AMH levels. This is partially my fault for not asking but I did all sorts of research about Day 3 testing before I had mine done last July. I made the mistake of assuming that AMH was included in that group of testing. So last year when Dr. H. called to tell me that all of my tests came back normal except for my high FSH I thought that meant my AMH was fine. Come to find out after our last cycle (an FET in June) failed that it was not included and they wanted to test it now. So we did and today I finally got the results back. My level came in at 2.6 which is right in the middle of the normal range (1.5 - 4.0). I seriously wish someone would have been taping me when Nurse Jenny told me the news. I'm positive my jaw dropped all the way to the floor. I was just sure that it would be low but was hopefully it wouldn't be SO low that my situation was hopeless.
I'm not even sure what to do with this information. With my FSH only being slightly elevated (10.6) and my AMH being normal it does give me hope that this might (eventually) work for us. It also makes me question why our results have been so poor so far. Logically I know that these numbers are only indicators and there's no way to really know what your egg quality is or how many you have left. And my AMH being normal is an encouraging factor. So for now I'll just take that for what it's worth and focus on the positive.
Most importantly what these results mean is that we are officially "ON" for Aug. cycle. My meds were ordered today and next week we'll start suppression. I think I'm ready both emotionally and physically. Although the disappointment from the failed FET was intense, compared to the miscarriage it feels more like a bump in the road. I'm praying that this good news is just the start of more to come in the next couple months.
