Not sure what to do. I met the love of my life later in life and we just started trying to conceive, I am 42 years old. We really want to have a child, but not so sure about donor eggs . I have never been pregnant or attempted to get pregnant before. Six months ago my AFC=3, FSH=6.3, E2=117. My results today were AFC=0, FSH=1.4, and E2=252 and two endometriomas that appear to be growing. Could the endometriomas have caused the change in numbers? If so, would removing them increase my chances of becoming pregnant? I've read that surgery reduces the ovarian reserve which is not a good thing so I'm confused as to what to do. I've also had a hard time figuring out which doctors would be gentle/skillful and not remove any unnecessary ovarian reserve, this could be crucial in my situation. I would like to do IVF (in vitro fertilization) but the clinic I've gone to is not willing to discuss it due to the change in numbers. Are there any clinics that will work with my numbers and the endometriomas? We want to give it our best shot, it would mean so much for us to have a baby together.
