Hi there, I am having a dilemma deciding when to see an RE. I am 35, had everything tested in February - hormones, HSG, follicle count, everything was normal. DH had sperm analysis in September - 12 million. We have both been on a naturopathic protocol which has completely regulated my cycle as well as helped my CM, as well as started him on acupuncture (I have been getting it for years) and so I trust it will also raise his sperm count - but it takes three months.
My thing is that I would like to TTC under ideal conditions naturally, so if his sperm count is up in January and my tests look good, I would like to continue for a few months to see what happens. We were TTC while he had 12 million for a while which is such a bummer to me! I am also beyond sensitive to all medication and very busy right now.
The downside is that I'm 35 and other methods work so much better the younger I am (DH is only 33) but I have such a fear of starting the process before we really give it a good shot. Is this crazy? I am biased, working in the alternative healing field, so most colleagues share the (personal) opinion of waiting for 2 years at my age and circumstance while trying alternative options, which is clearly different than the typical Western standard. Thanks for the input, lovely ladies.I really am having a hard time making up my mind and maybe even if you can't weigh in, just wanted to let you know what I'm thinking.
