Great my eggs are getting old....

that is what the Dr S said.

my last test of my Day 3 FSH levels back in Feb/Mar were 13 & 17

Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) Day 3 FSH is often used as a gauge of ovarian reserve. In general, under 6 is excellent, 6-9 is good, 9-10 fair, 10-13 diminished reserve, 13+ very hard to stimulate. In PCOS testing, the LH:FSH ratio may be used in the diagnosis. The ratio is usually close to 1:1, but if the LH is higher, it is one possible indication of PCOS.

Another hurdle for baby, the journey just does not get easier does it. It also has me thinking that yea I am getting older to, I still feel like I am in my mid 20's (I can only wish)

So looks like we will be moving on to IUI if my next Day 3 test (FSH) comes back high as the Dr put it "we need to get aggressive". I have also noticed that AF has been much lighter then normal almost like a spot but a bit heavier and only stays maybe a day and a half that can be due to the high levels of fsh.

Clomid has not been to nice to me this month I have been very moody, snappy and the hot flashes oh my head hurts.
