So I went for my blood results today. Everything can back okay. My Vitamin D was low, but I knew that already. My FSH and LH levels were off (of course). However, my AMH level was 45, way above normal for a woman my age. The norm is 2.2 and 97th percentile is 8. My doc said I am his new record for this level. haha

He would like to start me on metformin, which I was on, but did not react well too. However, I need to see my gastro bc I do have intestinal issues and the RE doesnt want me on it, if it will aggravate another issue. If i can go on it, I will go back in six weeks. If I can't go on it, I will go back and start a different oral pill (I already took clomid) to help me ovulate called Letrozole (i think that's what he said). Has anyone taking this medicine? What should I expect?

He was very encouraging and postive. He said you will get pregnant. The difficulty will be getting you pregnant with one child, bc of my high egg count. His number one priority is getting me to ovulate minimal eggs, so I can have a safe pregnancy.

I am very happy with the results and am ready to start the next stage in our TTC journey.

Thanks! It really is so helpful that he is so positive, informative and gentle. I am so grateful to have found him. My regular gyn is just as great too!
