Solutions to infertility: what you can do to help yourself SOLUTIONS TO INFERTILITY: WHAT YOU CAN DO TO HELP YOURSELF
Results of treatment (Reproductive Healthcare Clinic in St John's Wood, London) showed that women between 32 and 43 years old who underwent 40 cycles of assisted conception achieved an astonishingly successful pregnancy rate of 50 per cent, compared to the standard 15 per cent.
These remarkable results were achieved by a combination of conventional and complementary medicine. While the couples were being medically investigated by Reproductive Healthcare's director consultant gynecologist and specialist in reproductive medicine and treated in collaboration with one of London's leading fertility centers, they also came to see me and had full nutritional analysis, lifestyle recommendations and a supplement programme for the months leading up to treatment.
By having 'the best of both worlds' they achieved a 50 per cent pregnancy rate. This shows that conventional and complementary medicine need not mutually exclusive. They can be used very successfully together - all it res is open-mindedness on the part of both the conventional and the complementary practitioner, who can learn from each other, and open-mindedness on your part too. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain, as Jill and her partner discovered.
Before coming to see me, Jill and her partner, both in their early thirties, had been trying to conceive for two years. Jill's blood tests showed abnormal reproductive hormone levels and her scan showed that one ovary was not functioning and that the other one had multiple cysts, a symptom of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).
Her partner had had a number of sperm tests with conflicting results, and a post-coital test had shown no sperm in the sample. They both had stressful jobs and worked long hours.
Before the diagnosis of PCOS she had been treated for eight months with clomiphene citrate, and they had had one unsuccessful IUI attempt. They had already decided to go for IVF treatment by the time they came to see me, so the aim was to get them as healthy as possible before the treatment started. From the mineral analysis, I could see a number of deficiencies so these were corrected before the IVF cycle started. They were successful on their first IVF attempt and now have a lovely baby girl.
