The Obvious but a reminder

Postby TTCnumber2at42 » Fri Jul 13, 2012 3:45 am

I wanted to share with you what my acupuncturist told me yesterday ... I know it is obvious but with all of our TTC obsession, charting, supplements, gimicks, willingness to try anything that has MAYBE helped someone else get pregant he simply stated:
"As long as your period is regular you can have a baby ... age doesn't matter. I've had some clients 32 years old and no period I had to tell them after 4 treatments that I couldn't help them. I also had clients over 45 that I helped get pregnant naturally by ensuring a regular, healthy period and strong uterus (adeqaute blood flow)."

That was such a simple statement but gave me hope and I just wanted to share.

Afternoon... Hope you're doing OK :D .

Awww.. thanks for that Mrs.. :wink: , it's exactly what my doc told me too... 'if your periods are regular, irrespective of age, then you can make a baby',..or words to that effect..

I don't take anything,..i just temp and watch my CM,..i figure if my body can't cope with making/holding on to a baby,..then no amount of this that and the other's gonna change that!

Thanks for that. It's definitely something that is worth reminding ourselves of.

Thanks for sharing xx.

I appreciate what hes is saying, and its true as long as we have a cycle we can concieve. However, if the egg we release is no good it's not going to result in a viable pregnancy. Thats the challenge we face unfortunately xxx

That's pretty much what my consultant told me too - you need 2 things to make a baby, egg and sperm. If you have both of those you have a chance.
Thank you for sharing!
