I may be starting IVF soon and am in need of some good stories from high FSHers. I'm 37 and just finished 2 IUI cycles. My FSH at the beginning of this cycle came back at 15.2 . My previous two tests were 9.9 last June, and 7.5 this June(but my E2 was way high from two cysts so probably artificially supressed). So this is my first very high reading. Of course now I'm worried that I won't produce any/enough eggs/embryos for IVF. My RE is planning the antagonist protocol which seems to be the right choice for someone in my situation. Does anyone have any success stories for me?
I'm currently on 2 weeks of BCPs as part of my protocol(also waiting for insurance approval). I'm going to ask to get my FSH rechecked before I start stims on day 3. Should I wait another cycle if fsh is still high? I'm wondering if I would get better results waiting for a cycle with lower FSH? I've aready had delays and really want to try IVF now, but also want to have the best chance of success. Also, I believe that if i don't get anything to transfer that my insurance will not authorize more IVF cycles at least with my own eggs. I'm not ready to consider donor eggs yet.
