Homeopathic Fertility Treatments: Acupuncture, reflexology & more

With the rise of more testing and data in healthcare, it seems like infertility is becoming more common. This may be due to the rising age of parenthood across the globe, environmental issues, or a slew of other issues.

Understanding the Lingo of Online Communities

As access to information and online resources continues to grow, online groups around specific healthcare topics are also popping up – particularly around infertility. Many people in these groups find solace in talking with a group of individuals who know exactly what they’re going through, which they may not have in their existing support system of friends and family. Even if they do, it can be helpful to talk to others outside your immediate circle where you can be bluntly honest about how often you BD [baby dance], or the insane thing your DP [darling partner] said.

For any newbies out there first dipping their toes into fertility communities online, it can seem like you have to learn a whole new language. But with a few basic acronyms under your belt, you’ll be able to quickly find your own CB [cycle buddy] in these networks!

How to accurately time a Progesterone test

Your doctor may have suggested that you have a progesterone test to confirm ovulation or to assess your progesterone levels in the luteal phase.

 The main test to determine whether a woman is ovulating is by a blood test, which assesses the level of the hormone Progesterone. Progesterone increases in the blood stream following ovulation and reaches it’s peak at 7 days before the next menstrual period. This test is termed a 21-day Progesterone test and is performed on day 21 of a 28 day cycle.

Buying OvuSense was a main 'game changer' in my fertility journey!
"I have to agree, buying OvuSense was the main game changer in my fertility journey.  Without it, I wouldn't have been given the diagnostic tests I have had.  My consultant asked me this morning, "How's the 'egg' (meaning OvuSense) going?"  I showed him my charts from the previous cycles and he said, "Hmmmmm...I'm so impressed.  What's its actual name?"  So, I told him the name was OvuSense and he jotted it down."

PCOS - kiss my A**! I'm pregnant with OvuSense baby number 2!

Ladies, it is with pleasure that I am over the moon to tell you all that I am pregnant again. Baby No. 2 is on the way, due March 2018!  I conceived with OvuSense 3 years before this after 18 years of trying.

I knew I was from my Ovusense chart, sadly and annoyingly I missed a week of using it! I really want to know what happened in that gap but the end result is the same. ❤️

Doctors said I'd never have children without IVF...pfffft. Prolactinoma, screw you. PCOS, suck it. MTHFR, kiss my Ass!
