I’ve lost motivation to talk about our conception journey lately, probably because I have lost motivation on the journey itself! I’ve still been keeping track of where I am in my cycle and this morning, I worked out when I am due, because we are in the two week wait now. But the drive and the strong desire has taken a respite over the last few weeks. Fortunately it hasn’t for D. And while I still would love to be pregnant, he is often the one saying that we should still be trying now on this particular day. I am so grateful for that! For his enthusiasm and continued desire to have children together.
Last week, I went back to the naturopath for a complete re-look at what herbs I am taking. She is sending me off for tests to see how much improvement there has been in the last few months and is changing things.
She believes the mix I have been taking has done it’s job and it’s now time to focus on my progesterone. From looking at all my fertility clinic test results, she believes it may be possible that we fertilise an egg, but then that I don’t maintain the progesterone level in order to hold it.
The reason she thinks this, is that my progesterone levels are all over the place in regards to the days in my cycle. And she believes that my progesterone levels are dropping far too quickly at the end of my cycle, which the results did indicate. But I wonder if my cycles have become irregular again from the inconsistency in producing oestrogen rather than progesterone.
Nevertheless, she has my complete trust and I am very glad to be taking a different track and trying a new approach. And it’s quite likely that this new herb I am taking which focuses on creating good progesterone will also balance out the other hormones as well.
Over the next few weeks, on the appropriate days of my cycle, I will redo the original tests. I can’t wait to see the results! Definitely excited about that!
