    Default my experience

    I haven't had thyroid problems but have been through a miscarriage-same boat-healthy young etc.

    Tried chinese medicine and and acupuncture and fell pregnant quickly. Also took fish oil (in pregnancy multivit (very good for female reproduction) and supergreens powder/barley grass powder (boosts vegetable intake as healthy diet helps and probably wan't eating enough vegies!!

    Don't know what worked but it helped me feel like I was doing azll I could to help my body adn stay positive.

    Good luck. Stay positive. Try not to focus too much on "falling pregnant" although I know this is easier said than done

    Thanks flynnandgrace!
    Nice to see positive encouragement, and someone that natural therapies (which ever combination it may be!) has worked for others...
    To be honest, this is the first time I've really felt at peace with the process of TTC... I mean, yes, still trying to fall pregnant, but have been feeling a lot less anxious about it all.... And just enjoying the journey!
    Thanks again!

    Hi bluefire never thought any one will notice the name change :-)

    My treatment is going good I may skip the herbs for timebeing as I was advised accupunture alone would do to regulate my cycle. For some reasons I cannot hold up herbs in my stomach for too long.

    Glad to hear u r doing well as well. Keep up d positivity.

    Thanks others for keeping us posted sorry I am on I phone and don't know how to reply to each post separately . Glad to know that it has worked for so many people.

    Dancing queen - I only noticed because an earlier reply to you, was no longer 'to you'...!
    I totally understand what you mean about keeping the herbs down! I'm keeping them down, but there's been several spectacular close calls!
    Hehe
    I think you'll be okay with just the acupuncture... Li Chen brought my cycle on by acupuncture... I only started taking the herbs the night of my first appointment, and my cycle
    Started as soon as i got home that night to cook the herbs!
    Best wishes to you, with lots of baby dust!!
    Keep me posted on how you go!!

    Default Ondol Oriental Medicine Clinic

    Hi there - just putting the word out about Kelly at Ondol in Toowong, Brisbane. I was convinced to go and give her sessions a go from reading positive feedback about her work on here. My husband and I have been TTC for such a long time and I was feeling like a bit of an infertile failure - as women we spend so many years of our life trying not to get pregnant and shove so many birth control pills down our throats that I just figured that when I stopped taking the pill we would get pregnant instantly.

    I'm in my early thirties and I was off the pill for over a year and half before my cycle got back into a 28-29 day rhythm again. It has been so disheartening when every month I would not get the positive pregnancy we have wanted for so long. I made a decision to go and see Kelly to enhance our chances - I had heard so much about the benefits of acupuncture. I instantly clicked with Kelly - she was like an old friend and we were laughing and joking around in the first few minutes. She completely put me at ease. Because of her nursing past I can honestly say I think she has the best needle technique of anyone out there. I can say with no hesitation that there is such minimal pain involved and the sessions are always very relaxing. I have been seeing Kelly every week for just over a month and have discovered I have a stagnant liver or some kind of blockage in my Qi... she has worked on this and has been focusing on flushing blood into my ovaries and lady organs!

    On the weekend after realising my period was late I did a test, then I did another test and then another test out of disbelief as I had amazingly discovered that I was pregnant. I figure 3 tests can't be wrong! Was completely on top of the world! The first person I told (after my husband of course) was Kelly and I can't wait to see her this week to discuss and thank her for all she has done. I would recommend Ondol as a practice and Kelly to any women out the trying to conceive or those with fertility issues... don't keep putting it off just give them a call.

    Good luck to you all xx

    Hi Brooke

    Glad to hear positive feedback from you. It just helps to stay positive. May I ask how long did it take for you to get ur bfp after starting accupuncture

    Hey Niwanthi - I am not sure what point I was at when I last posted but, my husband and I were going weekly for about 2-3 months and then I got pregnant. I continued to go until I was about 12 weeks pregnant and then stopped. I think the reasons were the same - too expensive!!

    Also I figured we were going for a reason and that had been fullfilled - so wasn't much point in continuing after the first trimester!!

    Now I am sitting on the couch with a big BELLY ready to pop in 3-4 weeks!!!
