    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.

        Correct me if I'm wrong but FSH is tested by blood work, right?

          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've read that Acupuncture might be able to help bring FSH levels down.

                    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!

                      I'm actually thinking about seeing one as well for TTC problems.
