A while ago, when with an ex, I paid privately for some fertility tests to be done. Alot has changed relationship wise since then and i'm thinking about a family of my own again.
The results from the tests were said the ovaries were small and showed a reduced follicular activity in both of them. The antral follicle count was 5 and the AMH was 8.1. I'm 32.
Without going back to the gp, in my head i'm wondering what my options are. I don't want to go down the route of IVF, so I guess i'm wondering if I should give up before even starting. I'm sure you'll understand my protective wall is currently very much up in regards to all of it. Not only do I not want to break my heart (very much in my head have told myself, I won't get to be mummy) but I also don't want to hurt my other half.
Just noticed your post and didn't want you left hanging. Have you been trying naturally? You're still young and providing you have no other issues I'd say you have a great shot at getting pregnant. I know ladies with much lower results and have got pregnant although it's taken them a little longer to get there. Good luck! x
