Charlotte’s Story of Hope & Self Awareness
|Never lose hope even if you are in your 40’s, as you can achieve anything if you believe.”
Number of years trying to get pregnant?: 2 years
What was your fertility journey prior to finding Natural-Fertility-Info.com and the NaturalFertilityShop?:
I am very health conscious and have been pregnant before (I have a 3-year-old son), so was very well aware of the right foods and supplements for a fertility diet. Therefore when my husband and I started trying for a second baby when our son was 15 months. We thought that we would get pregnant quite quickly despite the fact that we were both in our early 40’s.
After 6 months of trying, I decided to go to the doctor to get some tests done, which all seemed normal except a low AMH, but my periods were regular and I was ovulating so the doctor said it could take a bit longer due to my age, but also suggested that maybe we should consider IVF if I can’t get pregnant in another 6 months. We initially decided to try IVF if we didn’t get pregnant after a year of trying, but when the time came, we both felt uncertain about it. Around this time, I was talking to a girlfriend who mentioned acupuncture as it was something that she found helpful for her fertility journey. I immediately booked weekly sessions with a local practitioner and even though I found the sessions relaxing, I couldn’t really get my head around how this would improve anything in my body.
As I am quite an inquisitive person, I was also reading fertility related books and doing a lot of research. When I came across natural-fertility-info.com, I couldn’t believe how all the information I have been searching for had been gathered in a single website! I immediately signed up for daily newsletters and have been reading and applying a lot of the information since then.
What information and products made the difference for you?:
I believe a combination of taking specific supplements for improving egg health and applying relaxation techniques, such as meditation, fertility yoga and fertility massage, made the difference for me.
Which products did you take and for how long?:
I started taking additional supplements (Royal Jelly, L-Arginine, Co-enzyme Q-10) for egg health in addition to my daily cocktail of supplements and superfoods, and also took Bromelain supplements (found in pineapple core) for 5 days proceeding my ovulation. I also used Vitex and Chinese Angelica tinctures daily. In addition to the supplements, I did fertility cleansing, used Castor Oil Packs, and practiced fertility yoga and massage for about 6 months.
What changes and benefits did you experience from taking the products?:
Although I didn’t experience a direct physical change in my body, I started imagining myself as a fertile woman with the help of all the natural products I used. I felt more aligned to nature and developed the mindset that I will get pregnant when my body is ready for it regardless of my age. And the newsletters continued to give me hope with new information and insight everyday.
What is some advice would you give others going through their fertility journey?:
Having a healthy diet and using the right supplements is key for a successful conception. Sometimes if you can’t get pregnant after months of trying, it is easy to get anxious and start losing faith in your body. I personally found fertility meditations and daily affirmations very effective in helping me to believe in myself and my body. Once you are past 40, it is impossible not to be effected by what is written on fertility in the media or the advice of well-meaning friends, but it is important to push these aside and continue to believe that your healthy body will conceive when the time is right.
Is there anything else you would like to share?:
My husband and I are over the moon that we are finally pregnant naturally with our second child after 2 years of trying. During this time I tried many natural supplements and treatments, but I feel like we only had success after I managed to switch my mindset from someone who was desperate to get pregnant and wanted to control everything to someone who has faith in herself and goes with the flow of the universe.
