Hi,

my story-i was told by the RE that i have a low AMH at 33 (but not too bad if that makes sense). Needless to say i was heart broken. I did 4 IUI which resulted BFN. 

we moved on to IVF and i am currently on my 1st IVF cycle. With all the joys of the monitoring and injections that comes with IVF, for some miracle, we are now working with 20 follicles. responding to medication has never been my issue even with the IUIs i responded well 3-4 follicles .

 

my question is,  is it possible i've been misdiagnosed? and has anyone gone through this with this type of results?

I don't understand?  If your AMH is 33 in the Cdn scale - it's reflective of above average reserve...the polar opposite of DOR.

It was long, awful & hard. We got very lucky and didn't run out of both emotional and financial resources. We saw some of the most beautiful of people in our lowest moments. Baby Girl arrived Apr 10/2018

What CHG said.

 

It sounds like things are going well, but if your IVF doesn't work out I'd definitely talk to my RE about it (but it will work out, so it's a moot point!).

 

That said, if you did 4 IUI's with no luck it's not unusual to move towards IVF anyway, no matter what your dx is.  So even if that reasoning seems a bit fishy, you may have ended up in the same spot anyway. 

 

Good luck!  Keep us posted!

AMH is indicative of egg reserve which doesnt always correlate to follicle count. I was told 5 years ago my amh was low for my age and my follicle count was 17-20. Oddly my amh 5 years later is nearly triple and my follicle count is 26.
I contribute diet and supplements.

Your AMH is low normal...reflective of *diminshing* ovarian reserve rather that *diminshed.*. It's not unusual for you to have produced that many follicles with low normal reserve.

Well we ended up with 14 eggs retrieved. Now I'm waiting for the fertilization report.
