FSH/Estradiol Levels High

I am concerned with the results I received after my last blood work, especially compared to the tests I had in 2003.
In 2003 my FSH level was 5 and my Estradiol level was 35.
Now the FSH level is 8.78 and the Estradiol level is 66!
Should I be really concerned about this? I have a huge pit in my stomach thinking that my egg reserve is going fast. My doctor is concerned with the high Estradiol level as he says it can actually make the FSH level read as lower, but that the FSH level is probably higher than the 8.78. I read that sometimes the higher levels can indicate ovarian cysts. The last IUI I had two cysts, one on each ovary due to the injectibles, but they were mostly gone the last u/s I had.
I'm just really bummed thinking that maybe we've waited too long to do an IVF (we are doing our first IVF in August). I was so excited with my 2003 numbers, I had no idea they could change so quickly.
Also, is there any way at all (chinese herbs/accupuncture?) to get the numbers down??
Thanks for listening. Any/all advice help is so welcome!
Hope you're all doing well and having a great Monday!
