I have a blocked tube, lean PCOS and hypothyroidism and have been TTC for nearly 5 years. I’ve been reading a lot about alternative/ natural solutions to improve fertility but the information online was a bit overwhelming and I wasn’t sure it would be adapted to my case (I have a BMI of 19.5). If you take the time to give Marija the full picture, she can really address your questions specifically. I mostly needed information on my diet and supplements and so she was able to focus mainly on those aspects and not the aspects I already have a hang of.
Estelle’s Successful Conception After a Year of Trying
My husband and tried to conceive for almost one year before finally getting pregnant. I did several acupuncture sessions, corrected my TSH level to a lower number (taking a supplement that contained iodine), used ovulation tests every month, had a healthy diet, took prenatal multivitamins and got tested for everything… I finally discovered Natural Fertility shop and website. It gave me so much confidence and information. I ordered the Fertility Cleanse and the OvaWise kit to improve my egg health, however I didn’t get to use the OvaWise Kit because I got pregnant immediately following the Fertility Cleanse kit!
My spouse and I lost two pregnancies both at 7 weeks and were not able to get pregnant again for close to 3 years. We tried everything from ovulation kits to temperature taking in the morning and nothing seem to work. Every time I lost a baby, the Dr. would tap me on the shoulder and say try in a few weeks again. We tried for 2 1/2 years and nothing… my OBGYN suggested for us to visit a RE which we did. The RE sent us for a million tests and later told us we only had a 10% change of getting pregnant on our own and suggested in-vitro. He mention that because of my age that he wasn’t sure it would work the first time. We went home and thought about it and then I started my intensive research…
…I started to take the multivitamins, the smoothies, the greens, bee pollen and kid me not, I was pregnant I don’t quiet remember, I believe it was 6 months after…
…Stay determined. You can do it. I did it. I only had 1 fallopian tube and 1 ovary working. My FSH was of a borderline menopausal women. I have a Thyroid problem. I had a lot against me.
“After my husband and I had our first child we decided to take a break for 2-3 years and use birth control. Conceiving our first was fast and there were no problems whatsoever so I didn’t expect to have any problems getting pregnant again… Unfortunately, I didn’t do any research on the Mirena IUD, it is apparently one of the “safest” methods out there in not becoming pregnant so in my ignorance, that was good enough. My Ob-GYN also assured me that it is easy to become pregnant again once the Mirena IUD is removed. Well, maybe that is true for some women but not for me… At this point, my whole understanding of birth control was to use it in order to prevent pregnancy but I never put much thought into how various birth control methods affect my body and my fertility…” Click here to continue reading Susan’s success story…
I am 44 yo and had a tubal reversal on 4/19/12. I had begun to prepare my body and my husband’s body for conception several months before I even had my TR in hopes that my eggs would be healthy and my body would be healthier. After my TR I took the first month and did the fertility cleanse and just allowed my body time to heal. I have tried many, many things but the most important was regular high quality supplements to include CoQ10, a high quality prenatal vitamin, vitamin D3, vitex, maca (not as regularly as I would have liked), royal jelly or bee pollen (depending on which one I could find… most often royal jelly), evening primrose oil during first half of cycle/ flax seed oil second half of cycle, and our successful month I began the thyrofem thyroid support because I am convinced I have at least some borderline issues with hypothyroid. I used castor oil packs occasionally and self fertility massage. I have also been watching my diet carefully and eat as clean as possible, try to have a green smoothie daily with added wheat germ oil, powdered greens which include wheat grass, barley grass, and I think maybe spirulina? Another thing I did differently the month I conceived was that my DH and I began exercising daily at a local gym. I also followed advice in the book “Making Babies” written by a doctor and an acupuncturist and used a baking soda douche around the time of ovulation. I began acupuncture several months ago as well, which actually alleviated many cycle issues I was having and I believe contributed to my pregnancy also. With the acupuncture we began using a moxa stick on my low back every night (prescribed by the acupuncturist) during the TWW the month I conceived.
So, after all of the preparations and work to have a healthy fertile body, I was able to conceive on our 6th month TTC. I am now currently 23 wks. pregnant with a healthy baby girl. Don’t ever give up on your dream! I found that through our TTC journey I would change things around some months and try something new. Just keep working at it until you find the right combination for you.
