To ovulate or not to ovulate

I find it interesting that every time Queen Naturo has tested me for ovulation through E2 and P4, it has always indicated that it is unlikely that I’ve ovulated.  Yet, everytime I was test for ovulation at the fertility clinic, she always said that I was.

It could be co-incidence.  Maybe that’s the way it worked.  FC caught me on a ovulating cycle and QN didn’t.  It could also be that FC only ever tested for P4, while QN tested for that as well as E2 – and it is always my E2 levels that are too low for ovulation, the P4’s are ok, but not great because they are affected by the low E2.

Seeing I’m not pregnant, I think I lean towards QN’s analysis more!

Yet, perhaps it was a meant to be thing.  Perhaps my destiny is not to be pumped with artificial drugs but to conceive through natural treatments.  If that is the case, then I am really happy with that.

Perhaps also I am reading far too much into it.  Creating hypotheses where no theories are present!!  Who knows!  It is just all very interesting.  The whole natural medicine versus standard medicine.  Yet, my experiences have shown me that natural medicine is much more effective, more intuitive, more revealing and solves the problems rather than masks them symptoms.   Time and time again, this has been proven to me.

Natural medicine will always be my first port of call.   But when it comes down to it, if we have to go IVF, IUI etc we will, and if I ever got really sick, like cancer, then thank goodness for standard medicine!   I am grateful to have access to both!



  1. I so agree with your thoughts on our medical system. Natural is the way to go, especially to prevent, and also when you have certain issues. When I was diagnosed with stage 3 ovarian cancer and they told me there was not a lot they could do - I turned to both. I did everything possible in both fields. It's been 10 years and I am clear. If I had chosen the natural way, it is my opinion, in this instance, I would not be here. Love your posts, Annie. You are going through so much. I can't wait for the 'big day' - I will want to fly down there and give you a big hug!

  2. I'd like to find out more about those natural treatments. I don't know very much about them but it sounds like it aligns with your beliefs very much. I'm saying my prayers for you to conceive.

  3. You are learning so much in this process...I feel that you will be able to help other women...even when suffering from lack of sleep due to a baby that will take all your energy. :)

  4. Hey Donna! So glad you chose the traditional way and are still here!

    Hi Jane - what are you wanting to know? You can email me with any questions!

    Anita - it would be good to be able to help others in some way with this. Thanks.
    PS. I'm yet to check out the blog you suggested. It's on my list!! I'm looking forward to it.
