I've noticed that there are a few ladies on here who have had high FSH and been able to bring it down and conceive. I'm curious how you did it or if it just came down on it's own?
As some of you know, I was a poor responder and in March I was told I have premature ovarian failure. My FSH then was 50! My FSH was never an issue in the past but my RE believes that my high E2 in the past was giving us false low FSH readings. I was sent away with instructions to get cd3 b/w done if I get af on my own, otherwise to come back in 6 months. He wants to monitor my hormones to determine when I need to start hormone replacement therapy. I'm not having any symptoms of menopause so I was told that was a good thing. However, what has happened since has surprised me! I'm 99.9% sure I've been ovulating on my own! I've been getting perfect ewcm and then 14/15 days later I get af. I even did opk's last cycle and got a +! I've been going every month since my diagnosis for cd3 b/w. My E2 has been pretty good for day 3, my LH has come down alot, and my FSH has been coming down too, though still high. I missed one month but the 2 I've had done were 21 and 28. I have an appointment with my RE in September.
I'm just wondering if anyone can shed some light on this? Any experiences to share? We do still want to have a child, so we're not preventing. However, after 6 yrs on this roller coaster and after my diagnosis in March we made the decision to stop treatments (donor eggs/embryos were our only option at that point). I just can't help but be baffled by what is happening to my body the past few months! It's like after years of being annovulatory, now it wants to ovulate and be somewhat normal?!?
ETA, Not sure it matters or not but I just turned 34 in May.
