For those of you who don't know my story, I've got one beautiful ds and have had 4 early miscarriages, last one being November last year. We've waited out our health insurance waiting periods and I was given an insulin resistance diagnosis by my OB. I'm on metformin until I reach 13 weeks pregnant.
I've been seeing a naturopath recently for a case of psoriasis that I've had for years. He seems to think that my mcs and psoriasis are directly related and while the psoriasis is still a problem, I'm at risk of miscarrying. He's given me another 4 weeks before I can try again... But here's the issue. I don't want to wait another 4 weeks! I'm ovulating right now! It feels like such a waste to be aware of it and just let it pass.
My OB said as soon as I'm preg, he'll dose me up on drugs to sustain a pregnancy...
So my question is, do you think it's worth a crack this month and take the risk, or do you think it's selfish of me to consider it?

So it's the naturopath that wants you to wait?
Personally I wouldnt, and didnt wait the advised time after a miscarriage and conceived DS

Unless you have been given something dangerous to pregnancy from the naturopath I personally would not wait.

The naturopath really doesn't have the appropriate training to be giving this advice....

What does he think will change in 4 weeks?

He's given me things that he thinks will help heal my immune system, and therefore the miscarriage risk. Anyway it may be too late... Dtd last night and it was amazing! Probably because I felt a bit naughty at the same time. Opk was positive yesterday arvo and this morning so we'll see!

Naturopath don't have a clue when it comes to pregnancy, fertility issues or a meically trained or equipped.
i have a psoriasis which make no difference to your pregnancy or M/C other than annoying skin condition that is created in the gout.
DON'T WAIT AND KEEP ON TRYING... IT IS GAME OF %. MORE OFTEN YOU DO IT THE BETTER THE ODDS

Natural medicine is still medicine and can interact with other medications. I have nothing against naturopaths but I think it's important to discuss any prescriptions from a naturopath with a medical dr or pharmacist first, especially if you're taking a prescribed medicine like metformin.
As far as ttc, unless there's a specific reason that the naturopath said not to try (for example they've given you something that is harmful to a pregnancy) then there should be no reason why you can't.
I understand the feeling of multiple miscarriages. I've been there too and yes, I also tried naturopathic remedies (followed by progesterone and aspirin from the second I got my BFP) and for me they worked. A combo can be really effective but you must be careful to make sure they're compatible.
