The issue with this question is to understand the significance of FSH. The reasons for high FSH levels above the value of 10 are numerous. In most cases nothing can be done about it This is mainly due to the fact that the ovary is running on “empty” – follicle depletion. Therefore, the high FSH is not the” problem”, so to speak, but purely an indication of a problem in the ovary – running out of eggs. Therefore, the only way to reduce the FSH level would be to “supply” the ovary with more oocytes, which is humanly not possible. The outcome in the book being referred to in the question, is indeed possible, but unlikely due to lifestyle or diet factors. It is a well known fact that patients with premature ovarian dysfunction, even ones that have stopped ovulating and menstruating all together, still have a 10% chance of ovulating a good quality oocyte and have a successful conception.Therfore, if you are one of those 10%, as far as you are concerned, it is 100%. This happens per chance however, without any intervention. This is because the ovary that is running on reserve will not respond to any kind of stimulation anymore.
