Can I get pregnant with high FSH is a common question.
Many women over the age of 40 have been told that their "FSH" levels are on the high side. Usually, fertility doctors want the FSH to
be under 10. However, there are recorded cases of women getting pregnant with their own eggs with FSH levels that were even over 100!
For example, The Oxford Journals Human Reproduction reported on three cases of women who had successful pregnancies with their own eggs with FSH
levels that would be considered "off the chart" and most doctors would have only given them the option of donor eggs. In one case, a 46 year old
got pregnant with an FSH of 22. The other cases in the report were a 36 year old with an FSH of 143 and a 35 year old with an FSH of 105.
After I discontinued fertility treatments, I never had my FSH checked because I didn't want more discouraging
information clouding my mindset. I knew I was going to get pregnant even if the odds were against me. But what if your levels are higher
than the recommended numbers? This article and video below explains what you can do naturally to lower your FSH.
Are you having trouble getting pregnant? Did your doctor tell
you it was because your FSH levels are too high? Here is an alternative natural way
to balance your FSH levels, to help you increase ovulation.
and to conceive naturally.
FSH is released by the pituitary gland,
and it starts a chain reaction. The hormone goes to the ovaries through your blood,
and causes your ovarian follicles to grow and develop. Once the follicle has
grown enough, it releases an egg (ovum) that will head down the tubes for
fertilization. The ovarian follicles release hormones also, and these tell the
pituitary gland to stop sending FSH. (continued below)

Sometimes, the follicles don't get the
message, they don't respond to the FSH. So the pituitary gland repeats the
message, and repeats it again and again until the follicles say we got the message.
Thus high FSH levels. If your young the medical reason could be premature ovarian
failure, if your a little further in age it could be called menopause.
follicles within the ovaries can not respond timely for several reasons, but
some causes are more common. For those whose age is considered by doctors to be
mature the common problem is not enough blood flow to the ovaries themselves.
FSH is a hormone that travels through the blood steam, so not enough blood
to the ovaries means the message is not getting through and the follicles are
not getting stimulated.
The most dangerous and alarming results of the
elevated FSH level, is deprived quality of eggs because for healthy and normal
growth of follicles oxygen, nutrients and hormones are required. At this stage
if you try to conceive it increases the rate of miscarriage and defects during
birth of the child and sometimes medicines and IVFs also do not work for elderly
