OK I just got off the phone with my RE's nurse. The good news is that my FSH is 4.9. Yeah!
For those of you who have questions about FSH check out this link where the Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago does a nice job explaining what a day 3 FSH is and gives a great table for ranges and defines how they can be interpreted.
They define an FSH of 4.9 as, "Reassuring level. Expect a good response to ovarian stimulation." because any thing under 10 is good.
I also had my TSH tested again and it keeps going up...it went from 2.2, 2.7, and now 3.37. I asked the RN about this but her response was that my RE looked at and was not concerned. But I'm concerned! There is evidence that elevated TSH can affect implantation. I'm actually really bothered by this but maybe they are not concerned because they think IVF will by pass this??? Does anyone know anything more about this? I've read that for women that are trying to get pregnant they want their levels under 2.5 and the fact that mine are slowly going up is concerning to me because I have a family history of endocrine disease.
*Sigh* As far as our infertility plan this means that Hammer is up next for his SA with strict morphology. Hopefully we can get this done this week since I am in town but out again next week (I told you I had crazy travel going on!). I would love to have our last test done so that we can know for sure what our next steps will be.
Recap of next steps:
If Hammer fails his SA we will be doing IVF staring the end of April
If Hammer passes his SA we will be holding off on IVF until around July to see if this Chiropractic treatment can help us.
I'll keep you all posted.
