  2. Hypothalamic Amenorrhea and LEPTIN tests

    Has anyone with HA gotten their Leptin levels tested? I just did when getting tested for Vit D and my level was 2.7. It is supposed to be anywhere from an 8-39. My regular OB and Fertility Dr had never heard of it.

    I wanted to see if anyone out there had and if so if they did any treatments. Below is a link to an article that can provide some information on it. It is commonly diagnosed with obesity but now they are seeing a link with very active people (this is me)

  4. Every little girl’s dream (or how I ended up in an IVF clinic)

    As a little girl, I dreamed of the day I could complete my first IVF cycle and maybe, or maybe not, gaze into the eyes of my first born child. I daydreamed of the names of which gonadotropin drugs I’d get to inject into my belly. Would it be be an agonist, antagonist, or flare protocol? Maybe my doctor will let me use a 1” needle for my progesterone shot instead of a 1.5” because he’s worried about all those shots in my petite frame … oh, one can only hope!

    Now that that’s out ...

  5. Ivf self pep talk

    After struggling with almost four years of infertility, my DH and I have decided to dive into the depths of our first IVF treatment.

    I never saw myself going this route. We discussed adoption extensively and were certain it was right for us. We even became licensed foster parents and had our first placement through our home.

  7. PCOS Have anyone had HIGH AMH levels?

    I just went for a second opinion and I was told I may have PCOS because my AMH is too high (10). They also told me my FSH is lower than my LH.

    They did a lot of testing today and one of them was insulin resistance.

    Can you please share with me if you have high levels of AMH ?

    Thank you!

    I have a 15 mo old son from ivf. We have done other transfers, one if which we got pregnant and lost the baby, while the other ...

  10. New to this site, anyone out there in North Carolina?

    I joined this site, in the hopes of finding someone from North Carolina who is undergoing infertility treatment. I have been on several other forums, but have found no luck in looking for a local friend. Please reach out to me, if you are in North Carolina!
