What is your official fertility diagnosis (male factor, pcos, endo, age, unexplained infertility, etc.)?
unexplained infertility
This was the official diagnosis, but when not taking supplements, I ovulate late.

What have you tried so far in terms of natural herbs/supplements?
Maca, EPO, lemon water, soy isoflavones, vitamin B

What have you tried so far in terms of eastern medicine procedures?
accupuncture

What have you tried so far in terms of western fertility medication?
clomid

What have you tried so far in terms of western medical procedures?
1 IUI

What is your current regimen/plan?
Next cycle (AF should be here tomorrow) I plan to continue with the above herb/supplement list. I plan to change the dosage of soy isoflavones, and add some additional things like bee pollen, wheat grass and false unicorn.

We plan to do IUI for the next 2 cycles (no western medicines though) and then move on to IVF.

DH is going to start taking the following this month:

Sarsaparilla
L-Arginine
Selenium
Zinc
Panax Ginseng
Bee Pollen
