I'm in a similar boat. TTC for 3+ years, I'm 31, husband's results were fine so infertility was unexplained. Then I had AMH test on NHS and the results came back in a letter saying my AMH is below 4. I was shocked and absolutely devastated - cried for days, constantly googling "low AMH" etc. It was a very painful time.
Anyway, we went private straight away and have since been told by 2 consultants and a fertility nurse that the 2 most important factors for conceiving are both egg reserve and age (i.e. under 35). So at least we have that on our side. They also said egg quality is as important as quantity. They recommended ivf/icsi split and I'm starting my injections next week - they've put me on the highest dose. The clinic have told me that staying positive is one of the most important aspects of the IVF journey and I've read and heard a lot of amazing stories over the last few months. Even 20% is 1 in 5 women. Who's to say that that 1 woman won't be you? You have as much chance as the others. That's the way I look at it now.
Good luck and fingers crossed for you xxx

Do not give up hope. I am 40 and had high FSH (12+) and low AMH (undetectable! so much worse than most I am seeign here). DH and I had basically figured having a baby was not in the cards for us but were still goign to try. The first consult suggested IVF which was probably a sensical choice given my above noted challenges. I went for a 2nd opinion anyhow and this doc told me that because of my specific challenges, I probably wouldnt produce very many eggs whether I went the IVF or IUI route, so he suggested he could do IUI 5x before my insurance owudl run out while 1 try of IVF woudl cost me $10k out of pocket likely even after my insurance. he gave us a 5-10% chance with the IUI route, So........we moved forward with IUI and guess what, got pregnant on the very first try! I am 15 wks now. I know, we are extremely lucky but it does happen, even for people in much more challengign circumstances so don;t giv eup hope. Honestly, we weren;t stressed about it at all (and I knwo that is easier said than done esp. since I was already at terms with being ok if we wernet able to conceive), but I really think it can;t hurt your chances to be relaxed about it.
Good luck, ladies!

My AMH just came back at 1.2.....I'm 40 and mulling over my options. I'd be happy to use donated eggs but haven't had a chance to discuss anything with DH yet, he'll be home in a few hours. I'm currently dieting to get the BMI down a recommended 4 points and I was feeling pretty motivated and positive. Until today I thought our fertility issue was DH sperm count/morphology/motility, but it seems we both have issues reducing our chances of Parenthood.
I will not cry.....

I'm 32, my AMH is 2.8, tested positive for lupus anticoagulant and husband sperm motility is low. Recently had laparoscopy for tubal blockage. Anyone in similar situation? No kids so far.

Just learned my AMH is .09. I'm at work. I cannot think. I want to go home. I'm reading all your posts about 2.8 and 1.2 AMH and I do anything to be in your shoes right now. This is all I've ever wanted and it seems so cruel to me that people who forget their babies are in the back seat are given such a gift while I, who would never forget about a child in my care, cannot have a baby. I feel sick and just want to go home. Good luck to all of you.

What great news! i just got my amh.
17/07/2015 at 13:11
I know this is an older feed but I just found out that my amh is .15. Repeat point one five. I'm not even close to even having low odds of being able to freeze my eggs. I'm 36 today. It's my birthday I found out yesterday. My husband left me. All I ever wanted was to be a mother. Guess not. All the odds and statistics show it as very low odds under .5 if you are under 35 im not even close to that and I'm over 35! I'm so beyond devastated. I know there are other "options" but finding out that you have little to no eggs to fish for to freeze when it's already a crap shoot if you have a ton of eggs is a kind of devastation that is beyond words. I'm sorry to anyone in the same situation. I have not stopped crying and have no idea how to reconcile this news.

Hi I've just come back to this page after being absent for some time and though I know you posted a month ago I wanted to reply anyway.
My amh while low isn't as low as yours however I will tell you something I was told when mine came in at 2.5. I was 29 years old and felt like he carpet had been pulled from under my feet.
The amh levels are by no means a absolute end. They are a guideline to your egg Storage an indication of whats "left" as it were. It's still considered new information and isnt even used everywhere yet But remember you start with Millions so could still have a couple thousand in there.
What im saying is despite mine being low I am now a mummy to a beautiful little boy because science intervened and while your journey will be difficult it is not over just yet.
Goodluck for for the future I really hope you find happiness no matter what happens
