Low AMH Success Stories

Low AMH 0.01, High FSH 150 – Natural Pregnancy; Spontaneous Conception

High FSH / Low AMH and Pregnancy Looking Unlikely

The third fertility specialist was with the National Health Service and by then my FSH level soared to 150 and when they tested my anti mullerian hormone levels, the doctor reported that my low AMH level was pretty much nonexistent at 0.01. It’s best, he said, that I move toward a donor egg cycle as soon as possible, because, the later I do it, the less chance of success. So not only was I devastated, now I was in a frenzy, feeling I had to act immediately or else all chances of having a baby would be gone.

I was about to talk to my younger sister asking her if she’d consider being my donor but then something just made me stop. I’m not even sure what it was that got me feeling that what I was hearing especially about the rush toward egg donation didn’t make sense. I was only 34. I was reading about women going through successful egg donor cycles in their late forties, even early fifties. Why was this fertility specialist in such a rush to get me sign up for egg donation? It didn’t feel right to me, so I decided I needed to just take a break, give myself a chance to sort things through.

The Fertile Heart OVUM Practice

And that’s when one day searching for some information on fertility herbs I found Fertile Heart. I immediately got The Fertile Female  and Inconceivable, started to work with the Imagery CD’s, and when I heard the Expert Within Imagery it was a kind of an instant enlightenment! I suddenly felt how true that was that I had been going to all these external experts, but really had no idea who my fertility expert within was, or how I would access her wisdom.

Gradually as I became more familiar with the Ovum ideas, the answers to that question seemed to come when I least expected them. When I joined a teleconference I immediately felt like this was a whole different way of looking at infertility. It was such a welcoming community and the focus was on truly mothering ourselves and turning this into an opportunity no matter how things turned out. I loved that!

I kept reading and re-reading the chapters in The Fertile Female. If I got down on my body about not doing what I wanted it to do, I’d read Issues in Your Tissues. For a while it was my favorite chapter. The Fertile Heart tools helped me get through the most crushing times, I had the CD’s on my iPhone and would listen to them whenever I felt like hopelessness was taking over. I’d do the Wailing Wall from the Body Truth CD when I got enraged at the pressure, which, looking back, was all about money making. But at the time I was so vulnerable that without these tools and without finally accessing the fertility expert within, it would’ve been so easy for me to succumb to the pressure.

Gradually I started looking at my life and this journey through a very different lens and I actually started looking at this journey as a great gift.  I know you might be saying it’s easy for her to say that now. But the truth is that even before I became pregnant I realized what a gift this journey was for me.

Critically Low AMH, Endo, Cysts: Natural Pregnancy

Bee, London UK – Natural Pregnancy after 3 Years of Trying

Endo, Cysts, Critically Low AMH…

I don’t think the physical things mattered in the end (“severe” endometriosis, endometrial cysts blocking follicles, borderline critically low AMH, subseptate uterus, short menstrual cycle, small fibroid, thyroid autoimmune antibodies, etc) Rather, it was the mind that shifted the physicalBeepregnantfertileheart

When I was given a disastrous low AMH reading in September this year, we hit rock bottom. I was told to do IVF as soon as possible, with my next cycle, but i was so freaked out my period arrived 2 days later and I was in no state to start. The doctor had made a big performance of telling me she was downgrading my chances in the light of this new reading, which to me seemed like she was saying ‘here’s your opportunity to get thousands of pounds and burn them to nothing’. I felt like suddenly a gun had been put to my head with a ‘”get pregnant now”‘ ultimatum in it.

 Following through in spite of obstacles

I found the Fertile Heart site that weekend. I ordered all the books and CDs. They arrived and finally someone was addressing that which no-one else had attempted to address despite ££££s in medical and alternative medicine fees. My heart and emotions. I shifted my work schedule and booked myself on a trip to Woodstock; despite the best attempts of a Hurricane to wreck my journey, I managed to attend.

Through Julia’s work,  I discovered I’d been living out my Orphans and that my husband & I had had an Orphan to Orphan relationship. I spent time connecting with my longing for a child, realising that I had to own the longing to be able to make sensible decisions, or to withstand medical treatment – it was no good not even daring to hope for children in case I was disappointed.

 Fertile couplehood

Slowly  I got my husband and I to start having conversations from the UM perspective (this was very painful at first). One night, we began to share childhood memories and he suddenly opened up about his family and his parents’ response to an elder sister he never met because she died two days after birth. It became clear to me that his catastrophising about not having children was linked to his having grown up in a family coming to terms with (or rather not coming to terms with)the loss of a child. From this moment, I was filled with compassion for him and his family as I discovered his orphans around not having children; before that, I had just felt stranded by what I saw as his lack of support and his over reaction.

 Practice, practice, practice

I did Fertile Heart Body Truth and imagery work twice a day, sometimes repeating them for 45 minutes at a time. I went to a craniosacral therapist to help nurture myself back to strength (I would recommend…much better than acupuncture – i told her about the imagery work and she worked with me on them) and I dosed myself with vitamin D, iron (both low) and took repeat AMH blood tests. I also ate a lot of chocolate almond cake as I’d become very skinny – of course this contradicted every fertility diet, but in an attempt to sort my digestion I’d become afraid to eat and something needed to be done about it. With each test my AMH level went up until the last test at the beginning of December showed it was back where it was last January. We went back to the clinic in early December. Though I had developed this passionate longing to get pregnant naturally in September, I realized afterwards that it was partly an orphan fuelled ‘f*** you doctors! How dare you tell me what I can or can’t do!’ After connecting with my longing, I worked hard to see doctors as a resource (but not an authority) that could help me meet my child halfway.

 Does this Fertile Heart stuff really work?

I was meant to start IVF with my next cycle, but my next cycle never came. January 1st no period, January 1st a positive indicator on the pee-stick. I’m actually a bit weirded out because I know that I willed this to happen. I became utterly convinced that I would be pregnant soon and through that, it seems I am (I did a lot of Jailbreak, Mirror of Truth and Issues in Your Tissues from the Fertile Heart Imagery 2 CD and and Defend and Receive from the Body Truth CD) When Julia told us in a phone circle before Christmas of 2 former circle members who were pregnant, I thought ‘great, this Fertile Heart stuff really works’ and ‘that’ll be me soon too’: somehow my jealous orphans didn’t come out as I was convinced it could happen to me too – that if it happened to others it could happen to all of us no matter how supposedly unlikely.

Choosing the road

Unexplained-Infertility- Success- Story

Through Julia’s work, I discovered I’d been living out my Orphans and that my husband & I had had an Orphan to Orphan relationship

It’s very early days yet and with a pregnancy a whole bunch of new Orphans have joined the fray; it’s 3 years now since my first pregnancy (ended at 6 weeks), but I’m still doing imagery work – I’ve been doing lots of 3 Steps Forward, from the Fertile Heart Imagery One CD, & 9 Hearts (Imagery 2 CD) but just recently I’ve switched to The Playground also on CD One, as I want to dare to feel longing. I first started thinking ‘oh 1st trimester is so difficult because you have what you want dangled in front of you and it can be taken away at any time…’ but then I remembered that a friend told me you then worry about the next trimester and then the birth, and then growing up, school, university etc, etc…You can read Bee’s full story at this link

Miriam and baby Elena, San Francisco, CA

Dear Julia, I’ve been a follower of yours for some time, books, fertility support teleconferences, and emails, I wanted to let you know that against all odds and predictions (age, high FSH, low AMH, you name it I had it diagnosed…), I became a mother last week at age 42 of a beautiful baby girl. Thank you for all your support and what you do for women around the world!

Miriam (and baby Elena)

Karmen R., London, England

I was diagnosed with endometriosis about two years ago and had laproscopic surgery six months later. I tried to get pregnant for about two years, before and after the surgery, to no avail. I did two IUI’s, which didn’t work and finally decided on my 37th birthday to move on to IVF. My husband and I went to see a high-flying fertility doctor in Manhattan and he gave us a pep talk about IVF, saying that I was an ideal candidate. He did some routine hormone tests and I resigned myself to doing the procedure, though my heart wasn’t in it.

I did a day 3 FSH test on a Sunday and got a call later that day from a nurse. She told me my FSH was 17.8 and that the “cut-off” for IVF was 12 or 14. I looked this up on the web after talking to her, desperate for information, and read numerous reports confirming this. I went into shock. My husband and I spent the day crying, feeling like someone just read us a death sentence. Then at one point I got up off the couch, marched over to the health food store, got myself a huge green juice and made up in my mind that I was going to fight this.

On the way home I passed Barnes and Nobles and floated up to the childbirth section to look for any shred of information on high FSH. Julia Indichova’s book Inconceivable caught my attention and I immediately bought it and brought it home. This was the beginning of a magical process that would change my life and affirm to me the potential of my own power to change and create circumstances in my life, even beyond pregnancy.

I raced through Julia’s excellent book, which was arresting in its honesty, candor and straight-forward telling of her incredible story. The book was full of excellent information, sometimes deceptively simple, but what I now know to have been the key to what later shifted the course of my life. I was extremely impressed with her emphasis on trusting your own resources and treating doctor’s advice as just guidance, and not the word of god.

I immediately logged on to Julia’s website fertileheart.com and found out that she was having one of her workshops the very next day in Manhattan. I cancelled my plans and showed up to a room full of women at all stages of experience—some were pregnant, some had just happily adopted, some were just embarking on the conception route and some had been at it for a while. In the center of this circle was a small, Eastern European magician with a disarming manner and an irreverent mouth that I instantly loved—Julia Indichova. What she taught me that day and in the one-day workshop my husband and I subsequently attended in Woodstock will last me a lifetime. Today I am 20 weeks pregnant with a little boy and girl (twins!).

I did do IVF in the end—after cleaning out my body and doing Julia’s “body talk” and other techniques, I ended up bringing my FSH down to 5.2—a huge drop my doctors in London, my second home, said they had never before seen. With extra phone sessions with Julia, I navigated my way through fertility treatment. Julia is a gem in the world and way ahead of her time. What she has taught me will stay with me long after my children are born.
