Herbs, Supplements & Essential Oils
Do you recommend any herbs or supplements or essential oils to help promote fertility? I have low AMH, diminished ovarian reserve, and high FSH.
A: It is a difficult place to be when all of those things are not in your favour. In saying that, in some instances, in some cases certainly what we do, which is utilizing the best of science and self-care can help.
I’ve had patients with high FSH conceive healthy babies. I’ve had patients with AMHs of less than 1, conceive and take home healthy babies. A diminished ovarian reserve is a similar situation obviously. Diminished ovarian reserve is a diagnosis of low AMH typically.
It’s not easy for me to just go, “These are the things you need to take” because I need to really understand more about your specific case, about your situations specifically how high is the FSH, how low is the AMH, how long have you been trying to conceive, what are the other health factors that I need to take into consideration.
There’s a lot of different things that go into fertility besides nutritional deficiencies. Sometimes AMH will be decreased on a blood test result simply because you’re deficient in vitamin D or if you’re overweight and you will find typically those are the times where if AMH levels are going to change, typically it’s the change in those factors that will make AMH change.
We can’t say that it’s an improvement or we don’t really know if it has significantly improved chances of conception occurring. However, we know that AMH on its own right is not the best of markers. However, when you put it together with a high FSH, the result is to have a fuller picture.
However, can you see how I need to really figure out what are all of the factors that are getting in the way so that I can really best advice you because it might be that you need to take a whole lot of things. It might be that even you taking those things, you’re not necessarily going to get a much improved result without perhaps going down the donor egg path.
