I am 41 years old, first experience with IVF. I have one child who was conceived without fertility treatments 4 years ago, and since then have gotten pregnant twice, but both pregnancies ended in miscarriage. My diagnostic testing showed very low AMH, and we decided to try IVF.
I am currently on day 10 of treatment, and it looks like my body has produced only one (!) decent follicle. My doctor has given me the option of converting this cycle into a natural cycle or doing IUI and or proceeding with IVF with the best scenario being retrieving one egg. The Dr. said that normally he would suggest converting to IUI,and if unsuccessful, considering another cycle of IVF in the future hoping for better results. However, there's no guarantee the next cycle would be any better and with my age and AMH, time is an issue.
Has anyone been in this situation or have any insight or suggestions?
We went into this knowing the chances of success were slim, but it is still disappointing to get these results.
