Hello, a few weeks ago I was diagnosed with POI by my OB – I had one blood test that showed my FSH at 100, AMH at .003, and Estriadol at 17. I do not know my AFC yet, I am getting that measured tomorrow. I am 34 years old, no kids yet but TTC. I am coming off long term (15 year) consecutive birth control pill use. I stopped taking the pill June 2022, had one period July 2022, and no period since. Is it possible that some of these hormone levels/lack of period are due to me coming off long term pill use, even 4-5 months later? Also, even with such a low ovarian reserve, does this predict my quality of eggs? I am hoping that at 34, my quality of egg would still be good even if the quantity is low. Thank you.
POI and egg quality
I doubt it has anything to do with your long term use of BCP. What I can say is that with your FSH of 100 and very low AMH, I am doubtful you will respond to stimulation for IVF. However, if you do, your age would be in your favor and provided a very individualized protocol is used, your egg quality could be OK. Be sure to be tested for Fragile-X because this is more common in young women with DOR.
