me and my partner have been trying to have a baby for about 8 months now, i came off the pill and then had a period, then didn't again for 5 months, then had another 11 days later and now not had one again since the 25th May. i have had blood tests and my FSH level is 55, reading forums i have come to believe this is very very high , i am so so scared that i will not be able to conceive and i desperately want to be a mum, i need to have more blood tests as well but i just dont know my options anymore and if there is still hope for me...i am only 29 so this has come as such a shock to me and i just dont know who i can turn to and ask who has been through the same sort of thing.....i have also been having the symptoms as well, hot sweats etc
anyone with any stories of their own, advice, tips or anything please help!
hi Littleonek, yes i have been told i need an ultrasound too, just to make sure my ovaries and womb that looks ok, but mine is basically that my follicles are working overtime to try and ovulate and they're just not, my body isn't responding, im so scared i just don't know what to think. not too sure about your results either, but if it is PCO i think this can be reversed and treated, its so scary inst it, how old are you? i have a consultation with a specialist next Friday for more diagnostics, i just want to be a mummy
Yes your fsh is high. This likely means That you have low ovarian reserve- ie not many eggs. It also means that you wouldn't respond well to the ivf drugs.
However- don't panic yet. Egg quality is far more important than quantity, and at your age, any eggs you do have are likely to be good. High fsh itself doesn't prevent conception, unless you have other issues.
My fsh was high age 34- I've been pregnant 3 times since and have 2 kids now.
What are your next steps?
I would say- don't hang around. Your blood results do suggest you need to be conceiving asap as you will run out of time quicker than others.
Do you mean this? I had my FSH results tested too and they were normal? I think the reuslts I have that are bad are saying I have too much testosterone. Weridly my period started the day my blood was taken so it was on Day 1 of my cycle. Only 21 days late
