That’s what I said when I read my most recent email from Dr. Y’s nurse:
“YOU DAY 3 LAB WORK CAME BACK AND THE RESULTS SHOW AND ELEVATED FSH AND THE AMH IS LESS THATN 0.03. IT WOULD BE BEST IF YOU CAME IN AND HAD AN APPOINTMENT WITH DR Y. I WILL NOT HAVE ANY APPOINTMENTS UNTIL AFTER YOU RETURN FROM EUROPE. PLEASE CALL ME AT xxx-xxx–xxxx SO THAT WE CAN SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT”
Yes, she writes her emails all in caps like that, as if I needed any more reason to feel alarmed.
My AMH is less than 0.03. I didn’t know the test measured amounts that low.
In what feels like another lifetime, I once wrote a long post about what AMH (and FSH and estradiol) mean for fertility.
Here’s a summary of my results the four times I’ve taken these tests. Prior to yesterday, 0.17 ng/mL was the lowest AMH of anyone I know in real life (including my Resolve support group).
|estradiol (E2)||24.6 pg/mL||27.2 pg/mL||23 pg/mL||20 pg/mL|
|follicle stimulating hormone (FSH)||13.7 mIU/mL||13.5 mIU/mL||9.7 mIU/mL||17.7 mIU/mL|
|anti-Mullerian hormone (AMH)||0.17 ng/mL||0.22 ng/mL||0.31 ng/mL||<0.03 ng/mL|
I’m feeling pretty hopeless at the moment.
At least I get to go to Rome on Sunday.
