40 years Old and Trying to Carry Pregnancy to Full-term.

I am 40 years old and have two children ages 14 and 9. I have had two miscarriages within the past 6 months. I can't seem to carry the pregnancy to full-term.


Hi S. Miller,

Sometimes there is no real explanation why a woman has recurrent miscarriages. If you have ruled out endometriosis, fibroids, poor egg quality and corpus luteum insufficiency, the next step is to consider the possibility of toxic overload that may be affecting your ability to carry a pregnancy to full-term.

The best way to do this is to follow a fertility cleanse to eliminate any toxins that can be affecting your baby’s development in utero.

Eliminate Toxins Can Increase Your Chances Of carrying A Baby To Term

According to most natural fertility experts, cleansing before getting pregnant is the best way to prepare for a healthy pregnancy. Cleansing helps you eliminate toxins from your liver that impair hormonal balance and from your uterus that may affect embryo development.

It is possible that if during your menstrual cycle, your uterus, due to weakness cannot completely empty its contents, part of the tissue and blood remains inside causing a hostile and toxic environment for the baby. By cleansing you will be able to support your liver and help your uterus to cleanse completely.

The health of the lining of your uterus, called the endometrium, is very important in allowing nourishment for the baby during pregnancy. The healthier your endometrium is the higher your ability to carry a baby to term.

Increase Blood Flow to the Reproductive Organs

Another important aspect of carrying a pregnancy to term is increasing the blood flow to the reproductive organs. The baby needs high quality blood that is rich in nutrients and high in oxygen. The easier way to do this naturally is by performing self-fertility massage before getting pregnant.

Castor oil packs should be used before doing self-fertility massage to help loosen up old fibroid tissue, scars and adhesions that may be present in the reproductive organs. If scar tissue is present, the endometrium becomes atrophic, incapable of providing nourishment for the baby.

If you are interested in a natural approach, I would recommend trying following the fertility cleanse in conjunction with self-fertility massage and castor oil packs for 1 month before trying to conceive again.

Fertility Blessings!
