Three Days Sober and AMH Score

ifobsessed

Today is day three of being sober. Sober from what? Why, from infertility talk! I feel like I should be awarded one of those medallions like they give you in AA. (I mean this as no disrespect to AA, I just sometimes feel like an infertility junkie. It’s like consumed my life.) I decided that DH and I would not discuss infertility-related anything until we have our IVF consult on July 8. I just can’t handle any more conversations about it between then. Mentally, I need a break (blogging, of course, doesn’t count. Of course). It seems like any talk about it now is just us just going ’round and ’round in circles. We’re in this weird limbo right now: I’m not tracking with my RE, I opted to skip doing a “dry” Clomid round this cycle, the HSG is over, we can’t start IVF yet, and we’re just trying naturally. What else is there to say? Honestly, I find that since we haven’t discussed it in a few days, I’m only thinking about IF about 80% of the time instead of 100%. That’s HUGE!

About IVF: I realize this is a very specific situation, but my Anti-Mullerian Hormone (AMH) score was 0.6. This is a very low score. In fact, 0.6 hovers somewhere on the border between “Low” and “Very Low.” My doctor likes to see at least 1.2 or above for a successful IVF. Dr. C described my results as, “Not great, but not terrible.” Then he immediately (gently) suggested going down the road of donor eggs. I shut him down quick by stating we aren’t interested in using donor eggs.

What I’m confused about is that I only have one ovary. So is my low score really not all that low? As in, would my score be doubled if I had two ovaries? Does AMH testing really count for a person with only one ovary, or was it a waste of a trip to LabCorp? Any input is greatly appreciated.
