17FSH is 17. A surprise? No. A shock? These things are always a shock.
An FSH of 17 means I have very few eggs left, although the jury is out on whether or not the ones I have are good enough to create a baby. One that lives, that is. Dead babies I can do.
We will still proceed with IVF No 2, in the knowledge that we will be lucky to get more than a couple of eggs and even luckier for any of those to fertilise.
With pregnancy odds of 2%, I guess 17 is lucky for someone.
