Have had 3 failed IUIs and am moving on to IVF, FSH is 10.1 but doc says 5% chance-- why would it be soo low??

A normal FSH level is usually

A normal FSH level is usually under 10, whereas an abnormal level is anything above 25. Measurements between 10 and 25 are generally considered borderline. So based on the FSH, why would your odds of success be so low? I don’t know. My guess is, you and your doctor need to have a conversation about why he or she feels your odds would be so low. Are there other factors involved? Getting a second opinion, even an e-consult, would probably be a great idea.
