Oh god I can't remember exactly. I've had quite a few tests done over the last 2 years.
I /think/ the last one was 28.something???? They have been much higher than that though.
I don't want to upset you, but I do remember being told by one doctor that the FSH levels only stay at their highest during the period when ovarian failure begins - the desperate trying to kick out one more egg. Once you are through that phase they drop again I think.
What are your cycles like?? Have you temped using FF - that confirmed to me that I wasn't ovulating!
I don't have my hopes high at all actually but am glad you are not trying to raise them !
The gynae was also not optimistic generally either.
I have my periods back, cycle was 24 days and should find out tomorrow (hopefully) if the blood tests says I ovulated though I don't think i did ! A few months ago I had EWCM and now absolutely nothing.... how quickly can things go wrong !
It will be interesting to see whether you are ovulating.
Did your gynae say whether a dose of clomid might just kick out a few more eggs? Apparently we have quite a lot of mature eggs left at the point of ovarian failure but they deteriorate quite quickly. If you still have periods then would have thought that you might still have viable eggs????
He said he might want to try me on ??? (not clomid that I can remember but had no clue what drug he was talking about)....
He did think I was in early stages but he didn't want to raise my hopes and also felt I was not a candidate for IVF as I woulld first need donor eggs.
I cannot remmeber and will have to wait until 25/4 to see him aagin.
I will probably ahve a bone density scan done on France when I go there on holiday.... it costs 50 euros.
It should give me a good reading of my bones now....
Have you had one done?
It must feel like a long time between appointments when time seems to be running out!
I haven't had a bone density scan done yet - but I think its too early anyway. There wouldn;t have been sufficient time for it to have deteriorated yet apparently. Also as I'm having HRT it becomes less of an issue in the short term.
I will give the HRT another couple of months but having just completed one cycle I have to say that I feel much worse with it that without it. The whole having a period again was awful - really bad and far outweighed any benefits I felt earlier in the cycle!
Well I got really busy today
Spoke to GP - though I don't think she is an expert..... she says she was pleased with results as they weren't too bad,..... she says it looks I am still producing some oestrogen (though eggs are a bit of a mystery). Will e-mail next week - have a very busy WE ahead.
