41 with High FSH

Hi

I'm 41, dh 41 ttc #1 for past 9m, have mild left hydrosalpinx that Dr wasn't able to repair during laparoscopy.

Tried 2cycles of clomid, 2nd with HCG shot. Dr now says we should move on to injectibles and IUI. Things looked good until my last FSH which was 14.4, before that the few I've had were 6.8-8.3 My Dr said that your prognosis is only as good as your highest FSH.. From what I've read on several of these boards, it sounds like people have had much higher FSH's and have gotten pregnant. We are hoping to not go to IVF..

has anyone had high FSH's and still gotten pregnant without IVF?

thanks

thanks for responding,

it's frustrating because the dr didn't sound very positive based on the last fsh...

but we're trying to stay positive and take it one step at a time...

take care
