My journey to a BFP

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!

  1. Update- I recieved the Chinese herbs that I mentioned above and started that yesterday the 08JAN. I put one teaspoon of each and make a tea. Tastes orrid but I am going to give it my best shot. I am taking the serrapeptase 3x a day now and the tea also 3x a day. I go into the doc on 11Jan ad im going to reuest for a HSG scan ppt to be set up. I'm crossing my fingers!!! I hope someone out there reads this post and if they have any info on the herbs or the serrapeptase would LOVE to hear it!

    1. Hola jenmac, Gracias por compartir tu experiencia!
      Tu foro me ha dado mucho animo, ya que estoy pasando por una situación parecida a la tuya, me han diagnosticado un hidrosalpinx en mi trompa derecha q aun no ha sido corroborado, solamente lo hemos visto 3 veces en ultrasonido, me prepararon laparoscopia pero la he parado por que me encontré todas estas opciones naturales, si la naturaleza nos regala una oportunidad por no intentarlo?

      Me gustaría saber como te fue a ti con el tratamiento, si dio resultados??? lograste concebir a tu bebe??
      Espero que si, por que al igual que tu yo hoy estoy en la misma situación y con muchas ganas de estar sana, de tener mis trompas sanas para que mi bebe llegue pronto y luedo poderlo tener en mis brazos.
      Mucha gracias de antemano por tu respuesta.
      Saludos

  2. Hi, I'm new here but I thought I'd give you some support. I too am going through the same thing you are. I recently ordered some herbs that may be able to help unblock my tubes. I read some inspirational stories about the study they did in china with these three herbs combined so yeah I jumped on it. Serrapeptase 90,000 IU, the herb xi xian coa , yi mu coa. I also ordered the fertil tea for him & her, herbs to increase CM. I also read some stories from supposed herbalist that says that there are no herbs that can unblock tubes yeah I choose to tune those people out. My husband & I can't afford IVF so that's out of the question. I'm hopeful that these herbs will work. I would love to share my experience with you & I would love to share your journey also. Doctors are the worst. Their answer for everything is IVF I wonder. why? We I've been doing research on natural ways to unblock my tubes & I never cam upon these herbs. I keep hearing about felopio the herbal tampon but that's $700-$800 that's ridiculous . I'm aware that there are people out here that preys on the weak , desperate & vulnerable so I try to be careful. I read up on these herbs for 2 months than when I was satisfied I ordered all three the same day. I haven't started yet because I'm out of town but the minute we land I'm starting. I'm excited & frighten at the same time. My husband tells me not to get my hopes up as I tend to do & end up heart broken by I'm so confident in these herbs that I can't help it. I told him if he read the articles that I had he'd be just as excited as I am so he decided to read it. I will let you know how my journey is going. Baby dust to you

  3. I am so happy to hear from you, and while I know the hurt you are going through, its comforting somehow to know someone is going through the same thing. My husband and I cannot afford IVF either, so like you I scoured the internet on ways to try and cure myself. I am sure you read the same report I read on the study they did in China where women responded to the herbs in as little as 10 days! That got me so excited. If you don't have hope then you don't have anything.
    It's kinda become like some urban myth...you always hear about someone who knows someone who couldn't have babies and "poof" it happens for them when they least expected it...or someone adopts a baby because they couldn't have children and not long after they get pregnant naturally. It happens, miracles happen. I just want it to happen to me! (and you!)
    The tea tastes horrible, i will warn you now..but its not unbearable..it has a bitter after taste. This is my third day on it now and seems to get easier tasting after awhile. The very fist cup I had, about 20 mins after it, I had a weird twinge which felt like it was coming from my left tube. That got ne excited. Also, I had a fatty cyst on my face that got infected about a year ago that left this very small scar under the skin that I can feel. It has gotten softer AND smaller...so that proves to me the serrapeptase is doing something.
    your husband and mine I think are similiar as they don't want us to get our hopes up. Being men, they want to be able fix what ever is wrong and in this case they can't. I told my husband that even if this doesn't work, atleast I tried. I feel though it will work..i know it wont work overnight, but I feel in my heart it will work. It gives me hope, and as you know, the smallest bit of hope is so much better than a doctor telling you you have no chance.
    I look forward to hearing from you. Baby dust to you!!!!

  4. UPDATE- So its 14Jan, and heres what i've noticed so far. My CM is better that I have ever noticed. I don't know how, because I didn't think what I have been taking helps that, but it obviously is. I have been feeling very dull cramps off and on the last few days...I think this is a good sign because I am not due for my AF until 28Jan. I made an appt. for a HSG scan. Doc is supposed to call me for the date but it will be between 06Feb-10Feb because it has to be 7 days after my AF, but maybe I won't get my AF! We will see. Even if the HSG scan comes out with one tube open i will be over the moon. I also have doubled up on the serrapeptase. I have been taking 2 in the morning, 2 in the afternoon, and 2 in the evening. You have to make sure to take them on an empty stomach and a couple of hours after you eat and before, but I've got a schedule organized now. I just overall feel so much better. oh, and the scar under my skin on face my is almost completly gone!!! I think no matter what I will keep taking the serrapeptase because its pretty awesome.

  10. hi there
    its sooo nice to read your blogs they give me soo much inspiration. i have been with my husband ofr twelve years and no luck. i have never tried anything and i am so afraid to go to the doctor. i am terrified of what i might hear. i just cant seem to make the appointment to find out what is causing the infertility... im just hoping that i would use some kind of herb and it will magically make it happen. i intend to try what you're trying as well. will of course keep you posted.

    very very Scared but hopeful

  13. Hello,

    I can say i know exactly how you feel. I just found out that my tubes are blocked and i wanted to know what were my options besides IVF. IVF is expensive and it was just not the way i wanted to go with conceiving. I am heartbroken to think that nothing will work, but i have read that some people end up pregnant with both tubes blocked and they say its a miracle. I went on a website and i am hearing about the Chinese Herbs and serrapeptase. I was thinking about going out and buying some today!

  17. Well obviously ladies it didn't work for janmac otherwise she would have responded a year later by now. But here is a link of a girl serrapeptase did work foron amazon her name is cajungal she's the first 5 star rating and it only took her about 3 months.
    www.amazon.com/Serra-Enzyme-Serrapeptase-Quad-Strength-Tablets/product-reviews/B0046BTYCY
    Also go to serrapeptase.info once there in the search box on the top left, type in fallopian tubes and you will see testimonials. Alsi Youtube has testimonials on serrapeptase for fallopian tubes.
    I just want to add one more thing, in order for serrapeptase or any of the herbs you gals are trying for them to work on unblocking your tubes YOU MUST CHANGE YOUR DIET. That means no starch, dairy, animal fat but fish is ok. Mostly fruits, vegetables, whole grains, water and juicing. If you dont change your diet to this. These natural methods will not work for you. As for the dairy, substitute the infected and injected cows milk with healthy milk such as Almond milk, Quinoa milk
    Good Luck ladies i just started serrapeptase 3 days ago and will change my diet i will come back here some months from now Yah willing to let you know if serrapeptase worked fir me
