Low AMH can be increased

Hi everyone, I have read so many sad stories about low AMH that I decided to write about mine. I conceived a beautiful boy when I was 30 with out any effort. I used Mirena since then for 4 years. I haven't been able to get pregnant again and I have been trying for almost 2 years (Now IM 37). A year ago I got all my tests and everything was fine except for my AMH which was almost undetectable (0.16). Although I haven't get pregnant yet, last month my OB did all my yearly tests and I was very happy to see that the AMH went up to 0.84 normal/low. If I could increase the AMH levels (which the doctor had said was impossible) that means that AMH measures not only quantity but also quality. What did I do? during the whole year I stop diets (eat regular healthy food with lots of veggies and fruits), drank fertili-greens every morning, coq10 ubiquinol, maca, pre natal vitamins and DHEA. I hope this gives you hope... Before going to IVF, IUI or any other expensive treatment, try to increase your AMH levels. This also increases your chances that any of those treatments works. Now I'm going to start with Clomid. I will keep you posted.

Thank you for posting this, and congratulations on the increase. I hope it leads to a BFP very soon! I have high(ish) FSH, and an internal scan revealed very few (and small) follicles last cycle. I'm awaiting my AMH result, but not feeling very optimistic right now. Posts like yours keep me hopeful, so thank you.

Hello

Amh also fluctuates naturally over 2 years mine went 3.7 to 2.2 to 5.3 again (measured on a different scale to yours as mines very low) I did try DHEA between it dropping from 3.7 to 2.2 but it made my endo worse

Hi ana123 - really interesting post, thank you. I've never heard of a fertili-greens drink! Could you please advise what fertili-greens is and where you get it?

Hi ChewyGiraffe,

FertiliGreens by Fertilica is superfood nutrition and is a great way to make sure you are getting all of your greens on a daily basis. A healthy fertility diet that is rich in whole foods and dark green vegetables builds a strong foundation for fertility and reproductive health.
My sis in law who stays at states brought this there online for the same purpose, but not sure where you will get it in the UK. It supplies you goodness of many ingredients like spirulina, green vegetables, organic flax seeds, herbal tonics and sea veggies. You can mix it with smoothies or juices.

I can't find a recent posting on low AMH on this site but thought I'd respond to this chain. I want to give some hope. I will be 36 years old in three months and have a four year old. I lost a pregnancy 1.5 years ago at 21 weeks due to a fibroid issue (story for another day) and then was told by the fertility doctor who removed my fibroid that my AMH level was 0.6 and my chances were very low for conceiving again. I was devastated as we had been through so much. They immediately put me on three things: DHEA, COQU10 and Myo-Inostisol. I used a brand called Pregnitude for the Myo-Insostisol (ordered it online) as it is made for boosting egg quality and quantity and also contains folic acid. I started this regimen and after two months became pregnant and had no side effects from the meds. I am now 30 weeks along. I know there's a lot of information out there about AMH and every woman's body is different. Researching AMH after I found out about my level was devastating with the 0.6 level. I hope this can provide some hope.

Hi , can you tell me where you got the dhea ? And which website you ordered the myo inositol? I'm older than you and have a no of failed ivf's behind me. Now at the decision of using de in the future so but would still have a small hope to conceive naturally before I go down that road. Madness probably at nearly 40 years of age

Thanks for posting this ana123. I also have low AMH and was only offered 1 round of IVF on the NHS but the consultant made it clear that she wasn't expecting it to work. I can't remember my levels. I conceived naturally a month later.
We are now ttc#2 and have started taking maca and coenzyme q10 this cycle. Hoping to try everything I can before going for any invasive investigations and treatments.

I don't think you can get the fertility smoothie in the UK but I'm sure you would be able to make something similar at home.

Grandiflora you can get the myoinosital online but not sure about DHEA.

Hi, I'm a biomedical scientist and part of my job is AMH analysis. With any biomed test there will be variation with results. You could take the same sample, test it 10 times and get 10 different answers. It's a very complex test so different scientists would naturally get different results. Saying that, they should all be around the same sort of value. Down the lower end of the scale (less than 1) the test is less accurate so results would seem to fluctuate more. Many places now prefer to just give the result of v.low, low, moderate, high etc to prevent this confusion. Hope this helps.

Hi
Thanks for starting this thread, it has sort have helped to set my mind at ease a little knowing here are others out there in the same boat as me!
My hubby and I have been ttc #1 for 20 months(I'm 34 and he's 31)
We had an initial appt at the fertility clinic a few weeks ago and was told all tests were ok apart from my FSH level which was 17. I had no idea what this meant until I researched it and have been a nervous reck since! They suggested I have it repeated since my GP told me it was normal and they also did an AMH test. I get the results of tomorrow when I go back for an internal scan.the consultant told me if the results were correct, I wouldn't meet the criteria for NHS funding. I didn't really as any further details at the time as I was a little shocked but I have not convinced myself that there is nothing they can do!
