The Herbs Are Working

In Nov 2008 my fsh was 18 and my e2 was really high. Well I received my blood results today and my fsh is 11 and my e2 is 76. I have not been taking the herbs for three months yet so I'm excited to see what happens in three to four months. Because of my massive adhesions the doctor does not want to do surgery because they always come back worse. He thinks that I could end up with a bowel blockage and things could get really bad. So I will be moving to IVF in four months. He did give me the speech about my age and gave me a low % of success. But he also said that herbs would not change anything. Doctors seem to have a hard time with change. Herbs are proven time and time again. I've also researched the % of unexpected pregnancies and woman in their 40's are second to teenagers. The research states that if all women in their 40's were trying to conceive the pregnancy rate would be second to teenagers. It is a statistical fact. So I'm going with the facts. I will keep posting my lab results as I get them and keep track of all the changes. I will also be trying to lose 30 lbs. I'm not over weight but I'm at the high end of the weight range for my height. I'm excited.

Just wanted to say hello and thank you for tracking your journey. I found your blog today in trying to do some research on soy while trying to conceive when over 40. I'm amused that our line-up of herbs is nearly identical -- glad to know i'm not the only one sorting out piles of supplements for the day!

and i'm sorry,but of COURSE herbs work! where do these doctors think pharmaceuticals originate from?!?

you've got a fellow 40 yo endo sister cheering you on over here. as some other 'rebel' said on the big screen, "Never tell me the odds!"

The Single Hussy, Glad to know I'm not the only one popping so many pills each day. Sometime it can feel like a meal. I can tell a huge difference since I've been taking them. Both inside and outside. Good luck on your journey. Stop in and let me know how it's going.
