Hi ladies, I am 42 and ttcing our 10th. I have had 9 losses with 2 in 2nd tri with emerg d&c and blood transfusions for 1st 17 week loss and just emerg d&c For 2nd 17 week loss. My youngest is 2 she was a miracle after 2nd loss at 17weeks. I had her at 40. Since I am 42 and have had several children with fertility meds ect I am expecting infert issues. I went 6 yrs with unexplained infert while ttcing our 4th with out a single BFP. Then 6 weeks before 35th birthday a shocking BFP! I have had infertilty issues come and go randomly ever since. I have the standard fert work up/FSH ect tests lined up for next cycle. My FSH was 7.4 when I was 39 I can't remember my E2. Has anyone else had there FSH done? What where your values? I am on cycle 2 ttcing waiting to O. I am not sure how hard it is going to be to get pg. I am expecting to be here for a long haul. I am wondering if I am crazy to be sitting in the front car of that insane ttcing roller coster again at my age lol I look forward to getting to know other roller coster riders of AMA :smileyhappy: Irene

welcome to the board, irene! my FSH was over 13, so they had to do another test, the AMH. either way, i'm ttc on lots of meds (clomid, follistim, ovidrel, progesterone) in addition to the non-prescription stuff.

but i'm with vickie -- numbers vary widely from person to person, so you could have better luck than i have had!

i look forward to getting to know you better.

Hi Irene. Welcome to the board. So nice to have you join us. I am so sorry for your losses. Hopefully you will have an easy time getting pregnant this time. This is a wild ride on that roller coaster but so worth it in the end if you get to hold that little one in your arms. I am waiting the results of my CD 3 bloodwork so I'm no help on the FSH numbers but remember, they are only numbers and it can fluctuate from cycle to cycle. Feel free to jump into any of the threads and chat. Looking forward to hearing from you again soon.
