I'M NEW....

Dixielou - January 26

I am 34 years old and have been trying to conceive for about 2 years. I have damaged tubes so after a few IUI's my doc said to go to IVF. 8 months ago I went in and got my hormones tested and my FSH was 55!!! I had no idea and the doc at the time was negative and said I will never get pregnant. I went into a deep depression and got proactive. At that time my FSH was so high, I was going through a lot of trauma i.e. old friend committed suicide so I think that threw my hormones off balance.
I went to a fertility acupuncturist and have been consistenly weekly. I drink the raw herbs that I cook twice a day. My husband and I decided to just take a break from all the craziness (it put a big strain on our marriage) and a few months later I got tested and my FSH went down to 14.6!!! We still didnt do IVF and in December it went to 12!!! I also had 7 basal antral follicles. That's not great but ok. So this month we decided if it looks good, we were going to go for it. I was so excited and nervous. My doc was out of town so i saw another one. Oh, I switched docs form the first one and he's amazing (Dr. Marrs). He did an ultrasound and he only saw 2 basal antral follicles so he said it wouldn't be a good month stimulation. I have been crushed and am scared. My FSH went up to 16.My estraial was 37 which is normal. I don't understand but the doc said not every month will be good. Oh, he wanst me to take 2 mg Estrace before my period. I guess that helps with the follicles. Has anyone heard of this and is it successful?
What's weird is that my cycles are regular and I usually always ovulate. Anyways, this is a new journey for me and I have to know that it may take time. I am glad I found this site. i feel very alone. Any comments would be great. M y doc said to not worry and this happens a lot and my ovaries are not failing which is what I thought. They are acting a bit older for my age is all. Please help . Thanks
