This is the first time I've posted on the forum, although I've been reading it for a while now. I'm 35, and after two miscarriages this past year (the first in June '10 and the second in Nov. '10), I discovered in the course of a work-up with an RE that I have high FSH. We've done the test twice - the first time it was 13, the second time it was 17. Not good. My RE told us to try on our own for a few months and then to some back if I wasn't pregnant and she would likely move us on to IUI with injectibles.
So we've been trying, no luck, and we're getting ready to move to the next phase of this process. I live near Dr. Check, so I'm also making an appointment with his office as well as with my current RE, just to compare notes. Seems like lots of folks here have had good things to say about Check.
The thing I'm the most worried about right now is that my most recent cycle (up until now, my cycles have always been 28 days), was only 22 days long, and based on my CM I think I ovulated I day 8 or 9. Way too early. So now I'm panicking that this plus the high FSH means that I'm definitely experiencing peri-menopause. In full panic mode over here.
The only thing I can think of to explain the short cycle is that I was sick last month, and I also was taking Royal Jelly. I'm wondering if Royal Jelly can make you ovulate early? Anyone hear of this? I was taking a 1000 mg capsule, and I think that may have been a little high.
I've also been seeing an acupuncturist for the past 6 weeks.
So that's all. Just wanted to introduce myself. This forum has already been a huge source of support got me!
