Well...we got my sister's AMH results back.
The news is not good. It is in fact decidedly bad.
Her AMH level is 0.19.
The Denver clinic would like to see an AMH of at least 1.2 for a donor, so 0.2 is really not even close.
Obviously we will not be using her as a donor.
Here is a chart on AMH values:
I feel terrible, absolutely terrible. Because I will now have to talk to my 31-year-old sister and explain this news, news she would never have to know if we hadn't asked her to donate. Based on what I can gather, this, in conjunction with her borderline high FSH (9.78) and low antral follicle count (7-8) mean that she would need to try to have children immediately if she wanted them. And she is currently not ready to do this. And my understanding after talking to the Denver clinic is that the likelihood of her succeeding - even now - even with immediate IVF - is slim.
We will pay for her to have a consult with a reproductive endocrinologist if she wants to talk to someone about what all this means.
But I just feel awful for bringing yet more bad news to someone, this time someone I love.
And us? Well, who cares about us, really. But back to square one we go.
