I have a question for the older ladies who have had mcs.
Did anyone of yous get your FSH levels checked? Were they high?
I had a mmc 6 weeks ago and did a home FSH test (designed to measure FSH above 25- v. High). The test was negative but still showed a line in the test window when some ladies report no line. I took the test again in the morning and the line was much feinter.
Wonder whether high FSH means no chance if successful pregnancy?
I guess I'm one of the older ladies at the age of 38
Had a MMC last summer and we started TTC again as soon as my periods seemed to settle down.
Anyhow, nothing seemed to be happening so towards the end of last year I went to my GP to ask for some baseline blood tests. everything seemed to come back normal- my FSH was 6.7 which is apparently normal.
I was at the start of the my cycle when I had the bloods done- in fact I think it was CD1 as I was pretty pissed off to have got my period.
Didn't know it was possible to test FSH at home.
I think elevated FSH is not normal and indicates less chance of an egg being released i.e. the body has to produce much more FSH to enable the follicle to mature/ovulation to take place.
In my (limited) knowledge, I think FSH tends to increase the older you get and the closer to menopause you are.
Hope someone else more knowledgable comes along soon
