The body is an amazing miracle in action. Every second, millions of reactions are taking place to maintain a perfect balance. People spend years of their lives studying how the body functions and they still don’t know everything there is to know about human life. One aspect of humanity is reproduction. For some women, becoming pregnant seems as easy as simply thinking about a baby.
I have lost 3 pregnancies this year. We are ttc again this month and my Dr will be checking for this, she says, as soon as I miss a period. Makes me a little nervous because I have a lot of these symptoms! TRYING NOT TO SELF DIAGNOSE THOUGH!!!!!!!!
Hi everyone...i'm new and i have had 3 miscarriages and no birth pregnancies. i have a 4 yr old son, husband had him before we were together. I have had him since he was 2 and i feel very lucky to be mommy to him but i find myself so frustrated with ttc. Since my husband already fathered him it makes me feel even worse sometimes. I was recently diagnosed with low progesterone and have miscarried twice since oct 2010. any suggestions? im on prometrium to boost progesterone after ovulation.. have been using opks and taking prenatal vitamins daily.. they just found the low progesterone after the last miscarriage.. had extensive testing and they think that is the only problem. 2nd month after miscarriage ttc.
Hi, I am 25 years old and is trying to get pregnant once again. I have been blessed with a loving four year old son. I recently had a miscarriage back in may 2011. I also found out that I have endometriosis. I had a miscarriage before I found out and later found out by the doctor that the pregnancy was no where to be found so had to have a D/C because it was an etopic pregnancy. I am having the worst luck of trying to conceive. I was wondering because of my circumstance is there any possibility of having any more children. It is emotional and very depressing.
I have PCOS and ive had it for awhile i presume i was diagnosed 2 years ago in october. in may till the begining of june i was bleeding and just thought because i started a new method of birth control that it was normal and i wasn't told it was strange. I took a pregnancy test when i was done bleeding and found out that i was pregnant when i went to the doctor and told them about the bleeding they did a blood test and i then later that day found out i had misscarried. I don't have any children but wish i could i have 2 god sons that i love and a 3rd one on the way i am very happy for my bestfriend but istill wish that i could have my own. I didnt have any simptoms of a misscarrage no pain just bleeding bu im still completly devastated and i havn't expressed my feelings to anyine that i still fell this way I just wish i could have my own child.
Hello Everyone, maybe what I recently discovered could help some of you? Please read on :-)
I have just joined and I am from the UK -
Although right now I am not trying for children etc, I've been having problems myself (pelvic area) for a few years (I'm only 30) and made an interesting discovery recently. So I thought I'd share it with you all. Of course we are all different and one problem has a knock-on effect with something else in the body etc, so this may not apply to you...
I've had depression since 9 years old (absolutely awful, yes) and counselling etc hasn't really gone anywhere for me. A friend of mine who had been ill with a few things including depression mentioned a lady they knew - she specialises in Kinesiology. This is something the NHS in England do not recommend, but I thought to myself "So what, I should at least be open-minded and try something else as the NHS have offered me limited resources" so I went to her. After doing a lot of muscle-testing on me she came to the conclusion that I had Mercury Poisoning and it was coming from the silver fillings I had done when 8 or 9 years old...
So I took her advice and got the four of them removed and replaced with mercury-free composite ones. It wasn't cheap (Ł600) but I must confess I am feeling quite different now. The dentist who removed them told me that one of the silver fillings hadn't even been done properly - and it just happened to be the filling that the Kinesiology lady thought was leaking mercury into my jaw, up into my head, and was roaming my bloodstream...
I went back to her two months later and, after taking some clay powder (mixed with water to break down the mercury in my body) she told me that the poisonous metal had now gone.
So recently.... I was told that given how long the mercury had been in my body, it had caused damage elsewhere. Apparently my levels of Progesterone and Dopamine are very low - I have had wierd irregular periods since I was a teenager, plus plenty of pelvic pains, ovarian cysts and now have a polyp in my uterus. Of course it's easy to blame it all on something, but after reading just what mercury can do to the body... it is pretty scary I must say. I am now on folic acid pills, 5-HTP, vitamin B12, magnesium potassium and some homeopathic progesterone to encourage my body to get back to normal levels of various chemicals.
My doctor told me that if I do want to get pregnant, it will be tricky with this polyp I have, I will get checked by a gyneocologist soon.
I know all this seems extreme and far-fetched, but mercury is very poisonous and should not be in the body. I'm so glad I went to a clinical kinesiologist - I think I would have been struggling for the rest of my life (my depression previously lead me to suicide thoughts twice for example) Anti-depressants, counselling, CBT are not really going to compete with the mercury that was previously circulating my body, and possibly interfering with various organs/natural chemicals.
So if you are having problems with fertility and so on and you happen to have mercury fillings, for goodness sake get them taken out. You never know it could be causing havoc with your body.
I hope this has helped some of you!
Hi Everyone,I am 27 and have been with my partner for 10 years and recently got married last year August. We want to start a family but have been unsuccessful from August,I went to the Dr and he said that I have low 2.5% progesterone,he has put me on Clomiphene Citrate 50g. My concern is if I am able to have a baby with this problem. Please help!!!
hello dear, i'm in the 6th week of pregnancy (first pregnancy) and have a progesteron level of 10.03 ng/ml that is ok or i need to take drugs for continuing pregnancy? by the way i have abortion from 3 months without any reason
Hi dear,am 26, I have good tubes and uterus, bt have a low progesterone level and my Dr put me on clomid which failed for 3cycles so I decided to take a break cos I developed a subserous fibroid and I believe the clomid contributed to it.I keep wondering if clomid helps cos I learnt clomid has to do with LH and FSH hormone and mine are normal, shouldn't he have given me progesterone cream instead?I also learnt clomid causes tinning of d uterine wall and infertile CM, is there anything I can take to increase my uterine wall and boost my CM? Thanks I need help...
