I tried it but I had other issues so it's was probably never going to work, but I know from trawling the various IVF forums that some women have great success with it and gone from hardly any response to having 15-20 follicles but I think it's a bit like clomid etc. in that it works really well for some people but for others it either does nothing or has a bad effect,
because it can convert to testosterone if your other hormone levels are already good and obviously that's not the best thing for when your TTC
In the US women tend to have bloods done first before taking it to see if it will help, but over here it tends to be more that docs either think it's great or hate it and offer it (or not ) on that basis
It's definitely worth asking though, and with low AMH the jury is still out on how much of an effect that has fertility wise, it only really tells them that your reserve is running low, so its a bit like only having a quarter of a tank of fuel in your car instead of a full tank, you know you'll need a garage sooner, but your engine's still running fine for now, might not be the best comparison but hopefully you get my point, your eggs can still be perfectly good quality there are just less of them so with an IVF cycle you might only get 2 or 3 rather than a dozen .
Mini/micro or low dose IVF is another alternative if they think you won't respond as well, with that the aim is only for 2 or so per cycle, you take much lower doses of drugs so it's cheaper as well and it seems to have good success rates for the right women and there are a few places in the UK that offer that now

thanks DL05 doctor this morning said i should not take it as it is experimental and i am aready on loads of experimental drugs for recurrent mis-carriages. although i did try to explain to him that my blood can back showing that i had POA symptoms being re-current miscarriages, short LP with spotting, my cycles are regular but tend to be 23-25 days in lengh. I nearly always go from period to fertile stage and then have a 9-11 day LP depending on the month. which i have been told the longer the LP the better the quality of the egg i produced. dont know it that is right or not.
the drugs i have been put on for the Antiphosolipid syndrome should stop me aborting it once i have got PG but all along the specialise have told me that this is not the reason for the losses as i lose them between 4-5 weeks and most immunity problem the losses are mostly after 6 weeks i only got there once. and i have not been PG since August 2010.

I just wrote a post and deleted it and have to go out now but this site below is one I found very helpful for suggestions on how you can help with problems naturally with diet and vits etc. there might be something useful on it for LTD perhaps xxx

I had two different ones, the first one I can't remember now but the second one was Jarrow formulas from amazon. I did get some side effects from both though, things like greasier hair, spots, some head hair loss (not noticeable to anyone else ) and some random dark hairs growing in strange places when I had to pluck two black hairs off my toe that was it for me and I stopped taking it
I was taking a higher dose though of at least 50mg, they now do a lot of 25mg versions which might be better as far as limiting side effects xx
