After two miscarriages this year (one at 6.5 weeks and one at 9 weeks) for unexplained reasons, we have not been able to get pregnant again, and running out of time (I just turned 42).
The pregnancies were natural, and at the time I was not receiving acupuncture.
Since the last miscarriage, I have been seeing an acupuncturist specializing in fertility weekly, and receiving herbs from her as well. This has been over 4 months. We are getting frustrated why nothing is happening now, when before I was getting pregnant within 2-3 months of trying each time (though resulted in miscarriages).
I went to an RE who said the only option is IVF, which is too cost-prohibitive for us. But I did get back these blood tests from day 3 of the cycle:
FSH: 5.86 mIU/ml
LH: 6.32 mIU/ml
Estradiol: 64.26 pg/ml
Progesterone: 0.319 ng/ml
Anti-Mullerian Hormone: 1.50 ng/mL
Approximately 3 follicles seen on each ovary in the ultrasound
And everything else tested including thyroid and antibodies was normal too. I’m in very good health. The only thing “off” was I was found to have the MTHFR gene, but had already switched from folic acid to methyl-folate in my vitamin a few months ago. I have fairly normal/regular 26-27 day cycles, keep BBT tracked, and we have been timing intercourse well each time.
Any feedback or advice? We are losing hope with my age.
