  1. Hello! It's been almost a year since I last posted here. I needed a little break. Anyway in the last year I have started seeing an acupuncturist who specializes in fertility. She has changed my cycle so much for the better - it's truly amazing. I am now on my second cycle with her, taking TCM herbs and feeling so much better. With these treatments I have very little PMS and my period is much easier to endure. I am still glad that I had the lab surgery rgery but it didn't reslolve my fertility problem. If anyone out there is thinking about trying acupuncture I highly recommend it. Also read The Infertility Cure. by Randine A Lewis
  2. Thanks for sharing that - I really don't see how it can't be part of the reason we're not conceiving. My husband shows no signs of having celiac or any kind of food intolerances (lucky) But I think that he's going to try a gluten-free diet for a while and see how it goes. I appreciate your good wishes, it is very frustrating - especially since we can't pin down the reason for the infertility - I fear that we are getting close to giving up.
  3. I'm not sure if this topic has come up here - if it has please direct me to that thread - but has anyone read or heard of any findings on if sperm from a man that eats gluten can effect the fertility of a woman with celiac? We have been TTC for 3 years - I have had ALL the tests and so has he. The cause of the our infertility is basically unknown and it just occurred to us that maybe the gluten in his body is effecting me somehow? If anyone has any thoughts on this subject please let me know. Thank you!
  4. Hi everyone, it's been a while but I wanted to give an update in case there is anyone else in my shoes who might be looking for help. 3 weeks ago I had the lap and the doc found stage 2 endometriosos. He told me that my infertility was most likely caused by this and I believe him, since all else was normal. He removed it and we are now looking at something like 70% chances of conceiving naturally. The surgery was a little scary but not as scary as I thought it would be. The recovery has been fairly quick. If your doc suggests having this type of surgery I would seriously consider it . My back and side pain have gone away and it only been 3 weeks. My Husband and I are really excited about our chances now.If anyone has any questions about the Lap surgery I'd be happy to try and help.
  5. Hi again, here's another update, although there's not much to update... It's been almost 3 months since the dye test. I am having pain on my right side every other month so I'm sort of thinking that there's something going on in my right ovary. I am scheduled to see the doc at the end of May. I know he is going to suggest the Lap surgery
  6. Cruel joke is a good description for it. I got my period 10 days late. I do chart and this month seemed right on time but I also occasionally, about every 4 months, have a longer cycle. So I guess we'll just assume everything is still normal and see what happens this month. This has definitely been an on going lesson in patience. If I ever do have a baby I think I'll have learned how to be patient Thanks for the advice, as usual you are all so helpful and caring.
  7. Hi, I just wanted give you all an update. I had the Dye Test last month and then about a week ago my doc put me on Amoxicillin because I was having a lot of back pain and cramping (he thought I might have an infection form the test). Now I am 8 days late. I took an EPT 2 days before my period was due and it was negative. I am a little hesitant to take another test until I am few more days late. Has anyone had any experience with antibiotics and gluten? I asked the pharmacist if the drug was gluten free but she didn't know. Anyway, I'm feeling very bloated but I don't have my usual PMS symptoms so I'm not sure if I'm pregnant or have some sort of reaction to the antibiotics that has delayed my period. I also cut way back on dairy this month??? Who knows maybe that had some kind of effect. Any one out there have any insight?

  10. Hi! Its funny, this month I cut way back on dairy because I have had issues with it in the past. I have noticed a difference in my sinuses and I am having less PMS symptoms this month. Thanks for the advice, I think that you're on to something.
  11. I have had the progesterone tests and all is normal there. My Doc is convinced that I can carry a baby, I just need to get that darn egg down the tube I think that I am lucky in that my body seems to be functioning normally. I have regular periods and all my hormone levels are normal. I feel lucky because I don't have to go on any drugs to regulate my cycle and my ultrasound shows that there are eggs being released. So, the closest they can come to a reason for the infertility is a blockage. Since I'm 35 I sort of feel like age might be a factor too but we'll just keep on going, doing what we can and hope for the best. If I get any info that might help the community I will certainly pass it along. Thanks for the advice. I'll make sure to do my research now and down the line. Take care, Klay
  12. Hi there! my husband an I are now both on vitamin supplements but since both my blood work and his sperm analysis came back normal, the doc didn't really commend anything specific. I think he's more focused on finding a blockage. Some reason that the eggs aren't making it down the tubes, thus the HSG yesterday. If nothing happens in the next 3 months he'll go in and look for endometriosis, that will probably be our last treatment. Financially we probably won't be able to go much further and I think that we will just explore other alternatives. Anyway, I really appreciate your advice and willingness to help. If any questions arise I will certainly ask. Klay
  13. Thank you, thank you, thank all three of you for being a source of support. I will make sure to post an update when there's something to update. I really believe that having people out there thinking good thoughts for perfect strangers is a powerful force and I really feel that you have made a difference for me in this sometimes very difficult journey. So thank you! Klay
  14. I had the HSG this morning and was quite nervous. The x-ray staff and my Doc were all really great. The numbing shots he gave me made me feel so light-headed they had to invert me on the table and the dye caused some really painful cramping but it was tolerable and thankfully, over very quickly. The test results were 'normal'. The dye spilled out through both the tubes, my husband says that one flowed through much fast than the other, the Doc seemed to think that everything was normal. He said that 15% of women get pregnant in 2-3 cycles after the test so we're keeping our fingers crossed. Thanks again for caring and sharing your experiences. Klay
