Has anyone had AMH testing with a low result? If so, how many eggs did you produce?

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!

My AMH was all over the place. It was tested once at 1.1 and another time at 5.1. So it was boarderline low and then super high. They got 12 eggs at ER. GL!

When looking at AMH you also have to look at other factors.

I totally agree with Chris that you have to look at AMH, FSH and antral follicle count together to get a clear picture on what your ovarian reserve likely is.

My FSH=9, AMH= 1.1 (or 5.1 in a later test) and antral follicle count on my IVF cycle was 6. So you would have expected a max of six follicles but we ended up getting 12 eggs out of the 17 follicles I had. Crazy good response for these results. So you just never know!

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!
