The Infertility Cure by Radine Lewis/Acupuncture/TCM?

Postby ptcruzer80 » Mon Oct 24, 2011 2:51 pm

Just ordered and read this book based on one woman's story from the Redbook Infertility Awareness videos and the Amazon.com reviews.

So currently I'm in the TWW after my third clomid/ovidrel/IUI cycle. My DH and I have been TTC for about 3 years. I have unexplained infertility and am wondering if anyone has had success along the acupuncture/Traditional Chinese Medicine route?

Though I have "unexplained" infertility, I think I have a luteal phase defect based on pre and post menstrual spotting. I also have low basal body temperature. Both my thyroid and progesterone levels have been tested and are within "normal" ranges. I took Fertility Blend (Vitex) for about 3-4 months before seeking the RE's help, no BFP but I think my spotting lessened. Though I discontinued it's use b/c I started clomid. I also take ProCycle PMS which is like Optivite and I do notice that I no longer have PMS like I used to but it hasn't done anything to help with the spotting.

Thanks for any wonder stories!
