LL with acu it really depends on the experience of the person...i tried 3 different people and with each of them it was a very different experience. I also think it has to be someone with specific fertility experience. The two ladies i saw only had IVF and fertility patients so they really knew their stuff. I lady I settled with used soothing fertility hypnosis CD's and music during the session so I really did relax.

Happy, i also drank that early pregnancy tea, yuck! Diluted mine with apple juice and worried just like you but he's right the Chinese have been using it for decades...in fact i found a forum where Chinese women talked about these herbs their MIL's would cook up for them so i felt safer! Its not Dr Andrew Flower by any chance is it?

notrustyyet provided some great information here. I've been taking most of the supplements listed, but only half the mg. This cycle, my FSH decreased to 8.34 from 10.5 last tested in January 2012. My doctor thinks running helped the blood flow. I'm a recreational runner but since September had been training for two races, one in October and one in November.

I have two questions, hopefully, someone can answer.

1) Anyone get pregnant with their first with low amh after age 35? Since I've never had a positive pregnancy test, I have no proven fertility.

2) Did DHEA affect your period blood flow? I period got lighter after starting DHEA, so I decreased the mg from 75 to 50, which didn't change the flow.

Thanks!

Hi, I got a at 43, although not my first and my AMh was 3.82. I took 75mg of DHEA and it didn't affect my cycles, however, I thought it gave me palpitations the first time I took it which was 1 and a half year ago and I gave it up. Out of desperation I started it again, along with Co Q10. I had planned to do it for 3 months, I even bought Fertinatal (one of the top USA fertility clinics endorse it) but I never got to take it! i took the one I bought about 2 years ago and waiting for the other to be shipped, after only 7 weeks, I got pregnant without trying! Have you researched inmune issues? Do you ovulate? have you done clomid yet?

HappyPregnant - yeah, I was under the care of an infertility doctor for two years. We just switched to a new doctor. Did 6 cycles of IUI on clomid and injections. I know I ovulate via ultrasounds in 2 cycles. I've been tested 3 times by 3 different doctors (they draw blood when I go in for consultations while switching doctors). All tests are normal. I've been on the supplements since July 2012. Not even a false positive. Don't know what the H3ll is wrong with me. My AMH even dropped from 0.46 in Oct 2011 to 0.26 in Oct 2012. I'm a few weeks shy of 38. Can't catch a break!

AMH is known to fluctuate from month to month. In fact some doctors say it has no bearing on natural ttc cycles and is only instructive & useful for working out the most appropriate IVF protocol. AMH doesn't reflect on egg quality.
Have you had any immune tests done - thyroid issues, blood clotting issues, autoimmune issues? And sperm analysis for your other half?
By a lighter period do you mean less heavy or less days? It could be many things- hormonal changes, thyroid changes, stress or even the additional exercise changing things a bit.

Happy hope things are going well for you

Hi peacebaby - yes, I had my immune tests done 3 times in 18 months -- results normal and consistent. No thyroid, blood clotting or autoimmune issues. I read that your AMH x 20 is likely the number of eggs you'll get. Since my AMH is now 0.26, I'll likely get 5-6 eggs, though I didn't get 9 when it was 0.46 in 2011. My antral follicle count this past Wednesday (Day 3) was 5.

Sperm analysis up and down, but overall more normal than not.

Before I started on supplements in July 2012, I usually get 3 days of heavy bleeding, followed by 2 days of light or spotting. Since the supplements, it's usually 1 day of heavy with 2 days of light. I don't know if this should be a concern. I'm trying to find whether the degree of bleeding is a reflection of uterine lining. Lighter bleeding = thin lining? Anyone know?
