I'm very new to this, hope I'm doing it all right!
I'm hoping to reach out to others who are in a similar situation to me. My husband and I have been trying for a baby for 9 months unsuccessfully. 4 years ago I was diagnosed with PCOS. We started fertility investigations around 5 months TTC due to this diagnosis. My blood work came back with excellent results (ovulating fine, which I knew because I was charting/great progesterone levels) and my husbands test results were great too. In fact they told me I didn't have PCOS anymore, just polycystic ovaries (I'm guessing a healthy lifestyle helped to 'reverse' it). What they did find was some minor thyroid dysfunction and I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism and put on a low dose of thyroxine. So I guess I just swapped one thing for another! I had a AMH test done - great result of 35 - very reassuring. I'm now recovering from a laparoscopy - tubes clear, uterus normal however small amounts of endometriosis found and burnt off. So basically I've had 3 diagnosis that can impact fertility and all have been treated (PCOS now gone...which I find strange but I'll accept it). We are going to try for another 6 months naturally before starting and assisted reproduction.
I guess what i would like is some encouragement and some recommendations for any other tests we should complete before starting (if we have to) assisted reproduction. I desperately want to conceive naturally but of course I'll do what I have to. I have regular acupuncture and I see a naturopath so any information I can give them through investigative tests might help them to help me. I've read a bit about the immune system affecting fertility...has anyone had any experience there?
I just have a 'feeling' that our journey to fall pregnant is not over and it is not going to get any easier for us...but that could just be me being negative.
Any advice/help/stories would be wonderful.
