BFP with the Fertility Cure Method
[QUOTE=bonbontree]I too have decided to take a break and try a holistic approach after a few trying and very expensive cycles (see signature). I’d love if we all can keep sharing and learning from each other.
After much contemplation. Me and my DH had a long talk. I feel like I’ve just run my body down over the last year. It took 750IU and 900IU doses this time to get things growing. I’ve decided to take some time off and just focus on getting my health both mentally and spiritually back in tip top shape before we try another procedure. I know it’s a risk given I’m already 43 but it feels right.
We are pausing until June or July. During this time I will take my supplements, exercise regularly, incorporate nutrition recommendations from “The Fertility Diet” and rely more heavily on my acupuncturist and TCM (traditional Chinese medicine).
A couple great books to read are “The Fertility Diet” and “The Fertility Cure” by Dr. Randine Lewis. Good information on TCM. So at least I can focus on alternative natural methods that can truly work while I regroup. That way the time won’t feel “wasted”.
What supplements are you ladies taking?
Well :af: and I are hanging out tonight! Allowing myself some treats and time on the sofa- so its a nice Friday night
My GF who has 7 years of IF just started reading the Fertility Cure and actually met with Dr. Lewis! BECAUSE her SIL got a :bfp: after 4 years of IF using his method for only a year!
Anyone feeling :bsv: ?
She wants me to try it as well- but to be honest I am nervous. I am doing another version of the holistic route right now and still uncovering what is wrong with me- whereas she has already found endo and had a surgery etc…so if you are reading it-and trying that please fill us in!
You asked about supplements-
This will be my third month on supplements that include:
B6 compounded (from a special pharmacy)
Evening PrimRose oil until ovu
Time BD with OPK and watching CM
now starting or on second month of:
using Pre~seed during BD during fertile days
Following a low glycemic diet (as best I can)
Guafesmin during fertile days
Grapefruit juice (fresh) during fertile days
cutting caffeine drastically
so that is my current regimen.
All I know is I feel so much better than I did months ago:cheer:
would love to hear what you all are learning as well!
For instance- I just talked to girl who has PCOS and took clomid for 8 months only to find out that it was INCREASING her cysts size. Why would a DR do that?
My doc said we can try clomid but only for 3 months in a row- if you don’t get PG then something else needs to be fixed.
hope everyone is well:flower:
