Hi, so had my first session today. It was interesting, she said I had a congestion problem in my uterus and cold feet/hands which was a general circulation issue. Very short Acupuncture session, only 8 needles (I think) and then some Moxibustion. I did leave with some herbs just had them now, they are certainly not the worst thing I've tasted but not great either. She also advised me DH should be taking Zinc and Vit E and eating Goji Berries for the swimmers. Until AF comes back she is taking a more general approach to the situation. I have to say since the session I do feel like I have more energy?
To answer cheekychook's question I have been told by a number of natural therapists that gluten plays a part in Endo and can effect fertility. The person today didn't say anything about it.
With the sperm meets egg method - I guess thats we do, I wait for my AF to finish and then we BD every second day until O and then a day after in case I am slightly off. This is what the FS told us to do. Everyday can be too much for DH as the swimmers may not be able to keep up.
hello, i hope it is alright to join this thread. i'm 34 and my dh is 27. i joined this forum 2011 when i got back a low test score on an amh test that was offered at a routine gyne check up. soon after dh and i went to a fs and started some tests and talking, but it all was happening so fast and too overwhelming, plus dh and i have a health issues so we didn't continue. now that i am 34 we are ready. i've come off medication that i needed to and just had routine checkups. my amh actually was so much higher!
dh is still a bit hesitant and truthfully, i'm a bit nervous too b/c maybe we'll never feel completely ready! anyway, just want to start looking around the forums again and jump in head first now. i am trying to figure out the lingo and ovulation stuff so i can plan our upcoming days. my period is ending soon, so we're going to try in a few days hopefully. really excited, but whatever happens, happens. wishing everyone the best!
This is my first cycle also.. Good luck!!! x
I finally took my morning herbs yesterday at night! They didn't seem quite as awful as the day before so hopefully I am acquiring a tolerance for them.
Positive OPK's for me Friday and yesterday, with a temp rise this morning so looks like I have O'd now time to enter that two week wait....
I don't think many people ever feel 100% ready (well I certainly didn't..) got to a point with age though that I thought I really shouldn't put it off any longer.
Any now after nearly 10 months of TTC unsuccessfully I am glad we started the journey when we did.
