High FSH and low AMH
I am 41 years old and recently my endocrinologist told me that I am not a candidate for ivf because my FSH level is 23.6 and my AMH reserve is less than 0.16.
She suggested that we get a donor egg. Can natural supplements help me? We really want to have our baby using my own eggs. I've never been pregnant before. I exercise and otherwise am healthy.
Having high FSH and low AMH gets you the label of not been a good candidate for IVF treatments because the quantity and quantity of your eggs will not be good enough.
IVF treatments provide a solution to infertility but they do not provide a cure. Most fertility clinics care more about their success rates and not your fertility. Unfortunately conventional medicine does not have a solution for poor egg quality because there is no drug that can substitute your body release toxins, improve your diet, help you release stress and increase blood flow to your ovaries.
AMH is just one measure of ovarian reserve. You have to take it in context many other factors that are affecting your hormonal levels. The most important one is your level of toxicity and your body's ability to fend off oxidation. Your body needs support to make healthy eggs not drugs!
"An elevated basal FSH reflects a quantitative rather than a qualitative decline of the ovarian reserve." Human Reproduction, 19(4): 893-898
Both FSH and AMH do fluctuate from month to month. In my opinion it is worth following a natural approach for a couple of months and then test again. It's perfectly reasonable to expect an improvement if you do something about it now.
A natural approach involves the following steps:
1. Doing A Fertility Detox
2. Taking Antioxidants like CoQ10, Royal Jelly & Maca.
3. Support ovulation with herbal remedies.
4. Increase circulation to the ovaries with fertility massage.
Remember too that AMH and FSH aren't necessary indicators of egg quality, just quantity and IVF success rate.
At 41 you have some time, but not a huge amount of time, so it is important to work quickly.
