Did the dr say that you'd have difficulty getting prego w/the fibroids/polyps? I guess I don't understand why they didn't remove them. I'm not sure if you're the lady I spoke w/about adrenal/thyroid issues. Let me know! I think I may have spoke w/you on a different post.
Ok I just found your post about adrenal/thyroid issues. It is you! I'm a thyroid cancer survivor and have been having adrenal issues for over a year now. The adrenal issues did not show up on the specialist/endocrinologist test as they only treat adrenal failure or overactive adrenal issues. My ND (Naturopathic Dr.) tested me (saliva/blood) and found me w/adrenal fatigue. So tired all the time and used to be really wired at the same time! Not fun. I'm 44 and ttc#2 after having 2 mc when I was 40 and 42 due to a gas leak in our house. It would be great to compare notes w/you. Hope your health has gotten better. :)
Well, I've had the fibroids removed in 2005 by myomectomy; 2008 vaginally; and they were trying to remove them vaginally again this past December 2010 but couldn't get to them. I'm trying to conceive on my own again (also doing acupuncture and TCM) for the next few months, before biting the bullet and having that painful myomectomy again to remove the fibroids. I purchased the Clearblue Easy Monitor to also help me out. Last year, I had purchased Making Babies: a proven 3-month program for maximum fertility. It goes hand in hand with what I'm currently doing.
The fertility doctor said I'm not in menopause, I just have bad quality eggs. I asked him to elaborate, and he wouldn't. Chinese medicine is suppose to help that, but it takes about 3 months.
As for my endocrine problems, I've given up on western medicine. I just can't seem to get the help I need. But so far, since taking myself off all those meds, I'm feeling better. I've even knocked off 30lbs.
So I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I get healthier, and the TCM helps get my eggs in a better state of quality, along with increasing the blood flow to my utereus.
I'll keep you updated.
@lilbm, I added you as a friend and put up a short bio too. Is "Making Babies" a book or a program you order on the web? Haven't heard of it. I purchased "Pregnancy Miracle" an e-book and basically it's the Chinese medicine protocol w/cleansing diets. Let me know if the friend thing went through.
Yes, the friend request worked. It's a book by Dr. Sami S. David (was on the team to do the 1st IVF procedure in NY) and Jilly Blakeway.
