AMH 3.4 and Progesterone 21 day test

Hi I’m 43 I’ve just had my AMH blood test result and it’s 3.4 which I know is low but can I still try to get pregnant through IVF with my own eggs? I was pregnant 12 years and 23 years years ago. I need to go for a progesterone 21 day test but my 21st day falls on a Sunday and the clinics are closed. Can I go the day before or after?

Fertility after steroid use

I am a competitive fitness model and I have been running steroids on and off for the last 7 years.

I always ran a post cycle therapy course and seemed to recover fine, but for the last couple of years I have been shut down for the whole duration due to work commitments, and I have just been going to a low trt dose of testosterone in between cycles.
I am now ready to completely come off as my partner and I want to try for a baby, but I am wondering the best way to go about it.
I know that it can take any time between 3 months to a year to recover and was just wondering the best options.
Obviously run hcg and hmg along with an anti estrogen and then switch over to clomid and nolvadex for a period of time, but how long would you recommend after being shut down for so long? How do I go about getting the sperm analysis and how long do you think I should wait until I have one done, as I know that this is going to take a while to get back up and running.

Thanks in advance for the help!

Nutrition phase before egg freezing cycle?

I am a 30 year old female and want to go through a cycle of social egg freezing. I am trying to decide what is the better strategy: doing it immediately over the holidays or delaying slightly to prop up my body health over the next 3 months. For context: I am living in France, which does not allow social freezing, but will get the procedure done in Germany (where I am from). I already did a cycle once last year January but only got 9 eggs. Having to go to Germany for the procedure means I have to take 2 weeks off work for this and this is usually tricky to find the timing (i have a very long hour high pressure job). It would hence be better for me personally to « get it done with » over the Christmas and New Years holidays, however, I have put my body under extreme stress in the last months (allnighters, little sleep, eating sugar and smoking under stress, going trough jet lag four times a months at least etc) and I know stress and poor diet can effect egg quality. Would you recommend me to thus delay the procedure and spend at least 3 months to eat healthy, try to sleep more etc, or do you think given my relatively young age it would still be ok to get the retrieval done now? Many thanks for your insights :)
