    Hello Ladies, your stories are amazing and inspirational! Can I ask the ladies who went to a Naturopath, what herbs were you told to take?

    Hi @Lizzy083

    I ended up going to a naturopath after years of tests and appointments with fertility 'specialists' only to be told our results are normal. It was a last resort before going to IVF. Since stopping the pill and starting to TTC I had mid cycle spotting and lengthy periods, but was told it was all normal - I knew something wasn't quite right.

    when I went to the naturopath, she knew exactly what the issue was and put me on herbal concoctions (she prescribed/made them) and I was on a strict gluten, dairy and sugar free diet to cleanse my entire system. there were three phases: cleansing the uterus and body, nurturing/preparing the body and ready for conception. My first period was bright red and short - just like it use to be before starting the pill! Once I was on the third stage - DH and I conceived first cycle.

    The naturopath may be able to help with other fertility issues too - endo, PCOS, m/c.

    Still early stages - who would have thought 2 lines would give so much hope!!

    Hope that gives you some food for thought...

I visited a naturopath 10 weeks ago. The naturopath actually listened to me and pin pointed exactly what my symptoms were - oestrogen dominance.

    After taking herbs, eradicating the 'bad' oestrogen and following a strict diet - it is now our turn to show a photo of two beautiful lines!

    4 weeks+5 days today So shocked that I took another test with ClearBlue the next day - same result! Very early stages - but it has given us some hope. Going for bloods on Tuesday.
    Omg that's fantastic congratulations sweetie!!!!!

    I saw a lady in the Brisbane CBD - I can give you her contact details via PM? Qualified naturopaths are registered with an association such as ANTA or ANPA. You can look for a local naturopath on their website and find one that specialises in a particular field.
