I’m seeing two physicians for my infertility. One is a regular OB and the other one has more of a holistic approach to things. The holistic physician ran blood work on me last year, and turns out my good cholesterol was low. She explained to me that the good cholesterol controls your stress, and ovulation hormones. I had my blood work drawn again last month, and turns out my good cholesterol had dropped 20 points within 1 year and I was no longer ovulating.
My OB physician has me on Provera right now due to being 10 days late on my cycle, and then Clomid. I’m afraid that even if the Clomid works, and my cholesterol is still low then I may not be able to sustain a pregnancy.
Has anyone ever heard of low cholesterol causing infertility problems, and if so can it be fixed?
