Mine isn't very low, but the doctors were suprised it was low for my age. I was a very poor responder throughout both my IVFs, but using estrogen priming really helped! Using that with the antagonist protocol has been very good for patients with low AMH!
is there a difference between estrogen and BCPs?
When looking at AMH you also have to look at other factors.

Sure - my RE thinks I may have been over suppressed on BCPs. Estrogen priming / antagnoist is as follows:
After ovulation, you begin taking estrogen patches and/or pills. You continue this through most of the cycle. You also take ganirelix shots for 3 days.
Once your period starts, you go in for labs and ultrasound and start stims - follistim or gonal-F and/or menopur.
Once your largest follicle is 14mm, you add in ganirelix.
I hope that answers your question! And, yes, it's early, but I did get my BFP!
