Consultation over the internet?

Postby TTCnumber2at42 » Mon Sep 17, 2012 4:29 am

Ok I am probably just getting desperate after my BFN on DPO13 after another failed IUI but on the weekend I was scouring the internet looking for the "miracle cure" to my infertility and I came across this consulting option...
I am really thinking of trying it out, has anyone used it? It's $65.00 here's what they say:

What do you think? Do you think they are going to sell me supplements from their website and I should just use the $65.00 towards that? Or do you feel going to a naturopath would be more beneficial? I am just taking these vitamins and herbs and I have no idea if they are helping or hindering TTC

TTC, hum...... good question. my 2 cents, I dont know if I would spend money for something like that over the internet, but then again I prefer the face to face interaction. Here is a thought, when I went for acupuncture I found her to be VERY knowledgable on supplements so you may want to look into that, just make sure to go with a highly recommended fertility acupuncurist if you decide to go that route. Hugs to you.

I don't think I would do that either. I need to "feel" a person out before I can trust them..if that makes any sense. And, you just never know if it is a scam or not. Sorry not more positive about it for you:(.

No problem and thank you for the feedback. It did prompt me to look at an alternative Natural Fertility Consultaion and I found a place in Toronto that looks promising (and in person).
Www.fertilitycareclinic.ca
I'm going to do more research and perhaps consider checking it out.
