Is an FSH of 9 High?

by Geetha
(UK)

Dear Amelia,
I'm concerned about my high FSH level. I am 37 years old and my husband is 38 years. We have one daughter, who is 7 years old. We have been trying for our second baby for nearly 3 years.

My FSH level is 9. We tried one IVF cycle, but unfortunately it was not successful. I would like to know how acupunture will help us. Kindly reply.

Sincerely,
Geetha

High FSH Level
by: Amelia Hirota

Hi Geetha,
An FSH level of 9 is not high. This is a completely normal level and does not indicate low ovarian reserve. From the little bit of information that I have, you are not a candidate for IVF. IVF is for women with blocked tubes or in the case of severely low sperm quality.

Acupuncture, herbs and the principles of traditional Chinese medicine may help you by balancing your hormones and deeply nourishing your body. I would recommend looking at my educational videos, so that you can learn various ways to diagnose your hormonal imbalances and properly nourish your body.

It seems to me that you would be helped by fully understanding where your body stands in terms of fertility. An FSH of 9 is no reason to do IVF. It would be in your best interest to chart your cycle, learn how to find a good acupuncturist, understand the various diagnostic tests and learn more about evaluating male fertility.

If you would like to respond. I'd be interested to hear about your partner's sperm count, motility and morphology. Also, how many eggs were retrieved in your IVF cycle and what percentage were fertilized?
