Sandy, sorry about your numbers. Will you still do the injectable cycle or postpone it for later? I have heard a lot of women say that the numbers can change from month to month so hang in there. Sending you some positive thoughts that things go well

I'm sorry. If it makes you feel any better I have an FSH of 18 and have been told I have diminished ovarian reserve. I am 40 years old. But your level is still really good, please don't feel discouraged by it.

Try not to get discouraged, which I know is hard. I do thik the levels can change from month to month. I'd still give it a shot. Waiting certainly isn't going to make it any better or reverse the clock. I've learned that the hard way!

Numbers can vary for many reasons, don't worry too much about it! My FSH was 15.5 but my RE said not to worry about it because I responded really well to the clomid, I had 3 really nice follies last month. Hang in there!

My FSH was 13 when I got pregnant with my daughter at 10 days shy of 41(she is now 16 months). Don't fret about those numbers. Sending good vibes your way!!!
