I wanted to start a blog and start to write down what I am doing and have done to try and get pregnant. First off, I have blocked fallopian tubes. I found this out about 7 years ago. I am now 37 ..tic, toc, tic, toc (damn clock keeps getting louder everyday)
My husband and I will be 10 years married coming this July, and we have pretty much been trying ever since. My husband is Irish and I am American. I found out about my blocked tubes whilst I was living in Ireland. First I had my hormones chacked to make sure I was ovulating and that came out good. Husbands sperm checked out good, so then had the HSG scan done. Man, that hurt!! The dye didn't spill out of either tube. After that I had the Lap. done. and thats when the doctor told us my only chance was IVF. I was absolutley heartbroken to say the least. Not long after that we packed up and moved to Florida. That was over five years ago. Every month, I hope for a miracle and every month I would be dissapointed. Sound familiar anyone?? I desperatly search the internet for way to unblock my tubes, as IVF just isn't an option unfortunatley because of the cost and my insurance doesn't cover it. I am running out of time and really don't have alot of options.
Sooo, I have done ALOT of research online to see if there is anything I can take that would naturally unblock my tubes. Heck, why not try? I stumbled upon an enzyme called "Serrapeptase" it is supposed to soften and eat up scar tissue. I bought a bottle of that yesterday ($27) at my local health store. I also ordered the chinese herbs Yi Mu Cao - Leonurus , and Xi Xian Cao -
Siegesbeckia. After research I have done online it seams these 2 chinese herbs brewed to gether as a tea is supposed to do wonders for fallopian tube blockages.
I just started the Serrapeptase yesterday, I am taking that 3x a day and also taking the tea 3x a day. I am going to keep blogging on how I feel, what I have noticed, an so forth. I am also hoping for other people to comment and let me know what you have tried and what has worked and what hasn't. I really look forward to hearing from you.
Thanks for reading my blog...more to come!
