Well, darn

The trip to the RE today wasn't the very reassuring.

I really don't even want to write this but it's important that I do.

If you're not familiar with the TTC (trying to conceive) world, everything I say will bore you and probably make no sense.

After conceiving three times very rapidly and with no trouble, those days are officially behind us. Conceiving naturally is incredibly unlikely if these results are true.

AMH .28
FSH 10

Most everything else came back in normal range except for prolactin. That was too high but could end up being the bright spot. From what I understand, high prolactin can throw those other numbers out of whack and make them not reflect accurately.

I have to go back tomorrow AM to get blood drawn again to test prolactin. I have never wanted bad results so much!

If my prolactin does turn out to be too high, there is a simple and inexpensive medication that can correct that. And then, maybe we'd find out it was in fact masking true AMH and FSH results.

I was supposed to be getting the ultrasound to test for fibroids and PCOS (no symptoms, but just to rule it out) but there was trouble and I have to go back tomorrow to try again.

James also had to do another SA today but what I thought was our greatest concern is now suddenly the least of my worries.

On Tuesday we'll return for what I guess we'll call the official consultation. By that time he'll have all my results and James' results and we can discuss options.

However, when asked today, he did say IUI is not likely to be the best option for us. Unfortunately, that's the option we can afford.

So, we'll see.

Disappointing afternoon.
