    Hello,

    I’m not sure where to start. My husband and I have had unprotected sex for 5 years and I’ve never been pregnant. We have seriously been trying in the last 6 months to no avail. His testosterone is below average and so is his sperm count but it’s not too bad. He is 39. I am 34, I was diagnosed with thyroid disease and hypothyroid 3 years ago. I also have PCOS and insulin resistance. All of which is now under control through medications (armour thyroid and metformin). My TSH is non existent and has always been depressed. I’ve seen two OBGYNs with hope of help to get pregnant. I had an HSG which was clear, my progesterone is sub par but my egg reserve is fine. My concerns are if I will be able to get pregnant naturally? does my body have the capability of carrying a baby? Due to my health issues would it be better to have intervention rather than a natural pregnancy so to select the ‘best eggs’? I have a lot of questions and I don’t feel heard by either OBGYN. They tell me to use ovulation kits and maybe take clomid. But I feel like I need more guidance and support from someone throughout this whole process to make sure that I am healthy and so is the baby. Should I consider seeing a fertility specialist/ reproductive endocrinologist? Or should am I over thinkint thinking? Thank you for your time! Tarah

    Absolutely! You need a thorough infertility evaluation. On the face of it there are a few very obvious leads…a) thyroid disease which is often autoimmune and can be associated with an immunologic implantation dysfunction; b) male factor c) Egg/embryo competency.

    If you are interested in my advice or medical services, I urge you to contact my concierge, Julie Dahan ASAP to set up a Skype or an in-person consultation with me. You can also contact Julie by phone or via email at 702-533-2691/ Julied@sherivf.com. You can also apply online at http://www.SherIVF.com.
    Also, my book, “In Vitro Fertilization, the ART of Making Babies” is available as a down-load through http://www.Amazon.com or from most bookstores and public libraries.
