I called a highly recommended acupuncturist (thanks Susie!) for the first time today to discuss her treatments and my IF situation. She asked me a few questions about my cycles and unexplained diagnosis. She immediately said my short cycles are probably causing our IF. My cycles are shorter than 28 days, they are usually around 24-26 days although my LP phase is right on target. According to her, my eggs do not develop enough to fertilize well since I ovulate around day 10-12. She said it can also cause undeveloped embryos which can lead to miscarriage which I have also had. I asked her why my short cycles were not a concern to my RE. She said that in the western medicine world, since I am ovulating every month, getting regular periods, and have a strong lp phase, this isn't a concern for them. According to her study, my cycles are a problem. I want to believe her and would love to think it's just a tweaking of my cycles that would bring us success. She recommended the book "The Infertility Cure", and to make an initial consultation appointment. At this point, I am willing to try anything. Let's hope I only do need a few tweaks here and there to bring us a family.
