Our expert says:
A- Dear Vanessa,
FSH values vary at different times in the
menstrual cycle. An FSH value of 20 on day 1 of your cycle or the first day of
your menstruation is high and can be an indication of low ovarian reserve.
There are other tests to determine your ovarian reserve like AMH (Anti
Mullerian hormone) level and AFC (antral follicle count). It is still possible
for you to have IVF even if your reserves are low, however it may decrease the
likelihood of the procedure being successful. If your reserves are thought to
be extremely low the possibility of donor oocytes option may be offered to you.
I advise that you consult a fertility specialist for further work-up.
