I don’t think it was the pineapple/no sugar/no caffeine/no alcohol etc. I think it was spending hundreds and hundreds of dollars on herbal mixtures and vitamin supplements and potions from a natural therapist at Melbourne Holistic Health Group and having acupunture from Dr Stanley Chiang in Thornbury.
Of the 25 cycles I’ve done -10 d.i.y. with fresh semen, 5 ivf stim cycles and 10 ivf thaw cycles, the two times something has managed to implant were after a combination of the above. Why didn’t we just go back to what worked with Arlo? Expense (yes we know, doing heaps of ivf was way more expensive), and pain (strangely painful acupuncture), and we just didn’t want the fuss. After all, hadn’t I managed to get it right once? Beta HCG 176. Fingers crossed for a good doubling time.
