Oh, I should add that I wasn't even on very high levels of medications either.

Your levels are similar to mine before I started IVF (FSH 9.6; Estradiol 70; AMH done a year ago was 1.3).

I think most doctors use FSH, AMH and antral follicle counts to diagnose DOR. My blood levels were very similar - FSH=9, AMH=1.1. What is your antral follicle count? Mine was 6-8 on various cycles.

My RE considered me boarder line DOR and used a more aggressive med protocol than he would have for others with their first IVF. We did 12 weeks of DHEA therapy before IVF and used a micro flare protocol. We ended up with a great response - 12 eggs retrieved, 11 mature and fertilized, 10 grew to blasts. Six of those blasts were A and B quality - 2 transferred and 4 frozen.

Hope that helps!
