Excerpt from “Elizabeth Pregnant After Years of Unexplained Infertility”: We were married in 2009, I was already 34 and my husband was 39. It was my first marriage, and I wasn’t quite yet ready for children, so we waited a little over a year to begin trying with the thought that we should probably start, as we weren’t getting any younger.
To my disappointment, it wasn’t going to be that easy. Month after month we tried, and nothing happened. After about six months, my gynecologist referred me to a fertility specialist, and I went through testing. An HSG showed my tubes were open, no blockages. Further testing showed I had plenty of healthy eggs, “like a 20-year old!” in the words of the doctor. My periods were like clockwork, and always had been… We decided that although we really wanted a child, we were not prepared to go the route of fertility treatments or IVF, and had resigned ourselves to the attitude “whatever happens, happens…”. We figured if it was meant to be, it would work out but if not, we were prepared to resign ourselves to the fact that we would just never have children.
After about two and a half years going on like this, I was searching the web for ANY information on how to boost fertility naturally, and came across Hethir’s site… I decided to give the Fertility Cleanse a try as kind of a last-ditch effort. After my next cycle ended, I began the cleanse. I finished the cleanse, and figured that I must not have gotten a full month supply, as I was out of capsules and tea but my period hadn’t come yet. (By this time I had stopped watching my cycle closely, we had kind of given up on timing things and ‘trying’ anymore.) Upon looking at the calendar and date of my last period I suddenly realized – my period was already one week late!!! This NEVER happened. Still not believing I could be pregnant, I went out and bought a pack of pregnancy tests and lo and behold – PREGNANT!!!
