    Default Low fsh, is clomid the only way?

    So my story is I've had one pregnancy that ended in miscarriage, had a chem two months ago. I recently had my hormones tested and all my hormones are low. Especially fsh. Doc says it looks like I'm not ovulating. But I must be in some cycles to be able to get pregnant.
    Doc wants me to see a specialist but I've decided to do further tests with the doctor. But my question for you ladies is, is there anything natural to raise my fsh before I look into taking a hormone tablet. I would really prefer not to take tablets but if its my only option I will.

    My hormones were all over the place! I got pregnant that ended in a missed miscarriage and had a chem also but some months I wasn't ovulating as my progesterone was very low. I went on Clomid and after 12months of TTC we got our BFP on the second Clomid cycle
    My suggestion? See a specialist

    At what stage of your cycle did they test the hormones? You're right in that you must be ovulating to conceive and hormones fluctuate a lot throughout the cycle. At the start of the cycle it's good to have a low fsh for example.

    Hi Babymad. I don't know a lot of about low fsh but I found this website really helpful for lots of natural ways to increase fertility http://melbournenaturalfertility.com.au/ I was following a lot of the advice on this website (mainly the fertility boosting foods etc) and 2 months after adding maca to my diet (which is great for balancing hormones) I got my BFP. 6 weeks atm so still early days but feeling very positive and I feel great. Good luck

    Thanks for the replies ladies. I go on Monday to test my progesterone, which is day 22 in cycle and then I got another blood test between 2-5days from when my period starts to test my fsh. So I Spose ill wait till then to know my next step. I'm hoping the bloods she took last time was just a dud cycle. Does clomid have many side effects? I've never been great with meds.

    Seems like your Gp is quite good and being thorough in testing. Clomid can have some side effects.... I did it for 3 cycles. It made me quite moody and snappy, hot flushes.... basically just pms type symptoms.

    Hopefully you get some good news from your day 22 test and as you said you may have just had a crappy cycle
