We have a few more of my sister's lab results back:
Apparently, the lab messed up the sample for the AMH test, so she will have to have this redrawn (Aargh! Bang head on desk)
The Denver clinic has a cut-off for FSH for donors at 10, which is awfully close to what my sister has.
For comparison, at age 38 (seven years older than her, and after cancer), my Day 3 FSH was 5.5, my Estradiol was 33.2, and my AMH was 1.4.
I'm starting to feel like the infertility grim reaper, spreading terrible news about others fertility status far and wide. We haven't talked to my sister about what any of these numbers mean and won't until we speak with Dr. Schl. But it seems not so long ago, that our genetic inquiries wreaked havoc on the anonymous egg donor's happy thoughts of future reproduction with the news that she had a rare abnormality. Ugh.
Once we get the AMH results back, we will schedule a regroup with Dr. Schl. to discuss, but I'm thinking this isn't looking like a very good idea. Seems like if this was my body, I'd of course proceed with IVF, but don't know that it makes sense to try to use my sister as a donor when her fertility doesn't seem so promising.
If we hadn't had such a long road already, maybe we'd want to gamble on it and hope that we'd be lucky (ha! Us lucky?!), but geez, folks, what we really want is to get out the other side with a child in our arms, and I'm not sure that this is looking like a smart way to get there anytime soon. But maybe I'm misinterpreting things?
Any thoughts? Am I reading this right? What would you do in a situation like this?
Hard to believe we may be back to square one again.
