Hi ladies. I am brand spanking new to the world of infertility forums and I’m needing a little support, inspiration and positivity. I’m 34 and my husband and I want a baby more than anything in this world. I have POF AND Diminished Ovarian Reserve Estrdiol 20; FSH 133; AMH 0.16 and blood tests confirmed the cause is unknown. Although the Dr. didn’t seem to think so, I feel being on birth control for 17 years straight played a part in it. I got off of them Sept 2012 and haven’t had a period since. I am healthy in every other way and am currently undergoing alternative therapies: TCM herbs and acupuncture; fertility massage; yoga; supplements royal jelly, maca, red clover, liquorice root, chaste berry, DHEA, CoQ10, Larganine, nettle leaf, black cohosh, milk thistle, Pregnitude to improve egg quality increase reproductive blood flow; castor oil packs. My goal right now is to get my menstrual cycle back. I am determined and willing to try anything and everything. My RE was very negative in saying I have a 1 in 10 million chance of conceiving and only option being DE but I have seen many posts all over the internet of people in similar situations ended up having a baby naturally so I am on a mission to do whatever it takes.
If anyone has or is going through the same and has had any success with anything, I would love to hear it. I am trying very hard to stay positive and sometimes I am, but other times I feel frustrated, sad, hopeless, anxious, angry, broken. It’s a battle, as I am sure you can all relate. My husband is VERY supportive, but it would definitely be nice to have some dialogue with other women who have been through or are currently going through the same thing. Especially if you have had any success!
I’m considering trying a Naturopath, found one near me that is a board certified OBGYN who specializes in ovarian failure… It’s expensive but wondering if it’s worth a shot…
From my heart to yours,
