So, I got some really bad news....

Recommended Posts

I have to tell someone other than Fi, I just haven't had the nerve to without breaking down again....So, I have been very down and upset lately.... Ever since I can remember I have wanted kids and that has never changed. I went for some testing and found out my FSH (follicle-stimulating hormone) is 17, and apprently anything over 10 is bad.... So, I either will have a very hard time when we are ready to get pregnant, or I never will be able to... I have been pretty devestated when she told me that, so today I went for another whole slew of blood work. I really don't understand all these tests fully, so if anyone knows more about it, feel free to tell me more. But from everything I have been reading online, says anything above 10, it is almost medically impossible...

Omg, Shelley, I am so sorry. I don' thave any advice to offer or any new information, I just wanted to let you know that I am sorry for you. That must be a hard thing to hear, but I know that medical miracle happen! Perhaps when you and Amos are ready, things will be different.

Oh no Shelley ... I am ssoo sorry to hear this. But always know there are options and medications and things that can help overcome this. However, I don't know anything about it to really help in the advice area. Can I ask why you had the tests done? Did you just want to make sure all is good for when you are ready?

yes, it is a blood test that they do, and apparently anything over a 10, (from what they are telling me) means your eggs are diminished and in very short supply... (I don't really understand it all either)

I really can't answer this, my Doctor was aksing me when we would be ready and I said probably a year or less, so she did all this blood work on me, and I guess that came back as one of the results...

I see an acupuncturist on a regular basis for my migraines, maybe I should talk to him about this too, to see if he can do anything different!
