Need advice- was TTC for 10 months, first IUI cycle was cancelled due to COVID. Happened to get pregnant on own and miscarried. I’ve had 2 menstrual cycles since miscarriage and getting anxiety on if we should start back with IUI or not. On one hand-we got pregnant naturally. On the other - it took 10 months, have low sperm count, and sometimes my luteal phase is too short for implantation. I struggle with how many months to try naturally before going back to RE for IUI. Thoughts?

I would go for IUI/RE consult. I've had 3 pregnancies, 2 miscarriages. My first complete pregnancy took 1 month ttc, my subsequent two back to back miscarriages took 6 months and 3 months ttc respectively.

No major issues aside from very slight hypothyroidism managed on medication, I'm currently under the care of an RE, on 2nd IUI, after ttc for my 2nd kid/fourth pregnancy for 7 months.

I feel like the RE helps speed up the efficiency of trying to get pregnant & trying to stay pregnant, and especially if you're in the situation of low sperm count it may be more helpful. After getting pregnant naturally 3 times, I just feel more comfortable being monitored and having medication as an option (and some hope given the fact that my body has been able to get pregnant before).

How much do you work out a week to cut? I was reading a bunch of articles that said 6x/week (3x weight, 3x cardio). Pre-covid I did 5-7x/week and wasn’t seeing great results.

I find by workout day 5/6, my body feels so fatigued, I either skip or switch out a weight day and do restorative yoga/another LIDL cardio day instead. Today was my 6th workout (jumprope tabata) and I could barely do it which then just feels pointless.
