I could do with the advice of anyone who has combined western medicine with traditional chinese medicine. It’s 10:53pm. I’d rather be sleeping than blogging but I am so confused right now. I’m ovulating, Vitamin D levels are normal and my hormone levels seem to be sane again (great news hurrah!) BUT the doctor still gave me Metformin to help with conception. I need to try three months of this before they’ll refer me onto a fertility specialist (banging head on laptop).
The acupuncturists weren’t so happy about that. They’ve spent the last couple of months helping me combat recurring bouts of cystitis and weaning me off the antibiotics that the doctors had prescribed. Along with my lifestyle, the antibiotics wore me out. On a positive note, the acupuncture and herbal tea have worked miracles for cystitis. Sex is no longer associated to pain. I only wish I’d seen them sooner. I’d definitely recommend acupuncture for cystitis now.
Back to the Metformin dilemma.. the acupuncturists don’t think my body is at a point where it should be pushed by the drug. They want me to give acupuncture another three months. My reluctance to open the paper bag that the pharmacy gave me suggests that I’m thinking the same.
I trust my doctor .. and I trust my acupuncturist.
I’m googling like crazy to find some answers on whether the two could work together.
Not only do I need to decide this but I need to make a decision about work. One minute I’m ready to walk away, the next I feel like I should be fighting more to find a balance. Decisions need to be made. where is that gut feeling when you need it?
