How I got my BFP after 2.5 years of TTC

Hey ladies. I am so amazed that I finally got my BFP after 2.5 years of TTC. I want to share my story in hopes it will help others who are struggling with fertility issues and to encourage you to never lose hope!

Background:

After TTC for 1.5 year natural with no luck (no chemicals or miscarriages either), I saw a fertility specialist for 1 year and tried Clomid and IUI. Nothing worked. DH and I had every test under the sun and everything came back normal. We were diagnosed with "unexplained infertility" and told IVF would likely not work for us. So we quit the fertility treatments.

I refused to give up, so I decided to do the only thing i hadn't tried before - natural remedies. I thought this was all BS but figured it couldn't hurt and I was so desperate. To my shock, it worked! I got my BFP!

Here is what I did starting from CD1 until the day I got my BFP:
1. Grapefruit juice: 2 large glases a day. This is supposed to help regulate ovulation and make you ovulate sooner in your cycle. I used to always ovulate CD20, but this made me ovulate CD14! It also helps strengthen the uterus and create fertile CM.

2. "Fertile CM" from Fairhaven Health: 3 pills a day. You take one in the morning, afternoon, and evening. This helps create EWCM and also helps make the uterine lining "sticky" and aide in implantation.

3. OvaBoost from Fairhaven Health: 4 pills a day. You take all 4 pills at once before bed because it makes you drowsy. This helps with egg quality.

4. Co-Q10: 1 tablet a day. Aids in implantation due to its ability to help with cell generation and energy.

5. FertilTea from Fairhaven Health: 3 cups of tea a day (8 oz cups). This is supposed to be all around supportive of reproductive health. It has green tea in it which is really good for maintaining optimal uterine lining.

6. Water: I drank a ton of water. Seriously, I was constantly drinking water-probably around 16 8-oz glasses a day. Dehydration can play a major role in infertility because it dries out the cervical mucus, making your body hostile to sperm.

7. I gave up caffeine. I had already drastically cut back on caffeine and was following the pregnancy guidelines of under 200mg a day, but this time I completely cut it out. This is the hardest thing I have ever done! I was so addicted! Caffeine can dry out your CM and cause early miscarriages.

8. Put more emphasis on temps and EWCM than OPKs. My temps and CM indicated a fertile window before I got my +opk, so we BD during that time and then again when I got my +opk. Looking at my temp chart, its most likely I actually ovulated before my +opk (Please don't leave comments telling me this is impossible. I know its highly unlikely, but it is possible I caught my LH surge at the tail end).

9. Used Pre-Seed lubricant. I had used this before on the "male part", but this time I used the female internal/vaginal applicator method.

10. Took a "BFP Brand" HPT form Fairhaven Health and got my BFP on CD 20 / 6 DPO (temp chart indicated implantation at 4-5 DOP).

Comments

Thanks for your comment reapage. They said since IUI didn't work that IVF likely wouldn't work either because we don't have problems with sperm mobility, ovulation, or chromosomal issues - which is what IVF is meant to address for. They would have still done IVF if we really wanted to, but we were quoted $30,000 for it and it didn't seem worth it since even the doctors didn't think it would work.

Congratulations!!

Congratulations, and thank you for sharing!!! This is our 18th month of trying, and on to a fertility specialist if AF shows up this weekend, praying she doesn't! I've been on Clomid for 5 months, next month is last month, and really, I'm over it! I want a baby so badly, but Clomid gives me crazy symptoms....I knew of some of the things you did, but not all of them. So thank you so much for sharing!! I'm going to look into those next month if need be!!

Congrats again, wishing you a happy and healthly pregnancy!

Opk's never worked for me. I always ovulate before I get the +. And I'm on #9 so I should know! You are not alone.

congrats..what grapejuice did you use

can i use 100 percent sparling grape juice

Congratulations! I've just started using FertilAid and Fertilitea this cycle. Fx
