bad news

I went in to my OBGYN today and she reviewed my lab work. She was floored. The first words out of her mouth was a mumbled "oh shit" . Basically she says I have premature ovarian failure and believes I'm in the throws of menopause....at 27. She ran some labs to get a better idea of why ( maybe an autoimmune issue) and to check my follicular reserve. She basically told me the good news is that I can carry a baby, bad news is I will have to use a donor egg and do IVF. She referred me to a reproductive endocrinologist....I always had a feeling in my heart something like this would be our fate..

Thanks ladies:) I serve a mighty God and I don't believe he would put such a desire in my heart if he didn't plan on fulfilling it. Hopefully my RE can give me some good news:)

Ashley- Do not lose hope!  Definitely go to an RE...my obgyn didn't specialize in fertility and would only test me on cd21 to tell me I didn't O...probably age factor...etc.


When I went to my RE last year my AMH was perfect at 3.0, but I had elevated e2 on CD3 which surpressed my FSH level.  Did you have an antral follicle count done?  This year, my e2 level was perfect as well as my FSH...however, my AMH plummeted.  Do you know what tests your Dr. ran and the results?  Only looking at my AMH now it would seem that I was in DOR...but my FSH is good so I'm not.  Last year, only looking at my e2 and FSH it would seem that I was also in DOR.  My RE was never worried about my numbers though.  I've also read that AMH is a fairly newer test and that the number can change or be different from different labs.


Sending you big hugs!

Oh Ash, I don't know what to say to make you feel better.... we are all here for you and I'm SO sorry to read your news.  Ditto the other girls, try to stay positive - mircales can happen and perhaps the reproductive endo will be able to help more.  Big hugs
