Castor Oil Safty for IVF and Infertility

by Sarah

Hello, I now have had 3 lupron depo injections and unfortunately a cyst on my left side seems to have gotten a little bigger than last month. I will be going for another ultrasound in 5 weeks to track the cyst, if it has got smaller or larger. I doubt that another injection will be advised but predict the doctor will go ahead with the IVF cycle.

Do you think it will be helpful for me to apply a castor oil pack to my lower abdominal every night to reduce the cyst? My only concern and questions is do you know if the castor oil has any negative impact on egg quality and quantity.

I would sincerely welcome any additional information you can offer for my husband to begin our family.

Kind Regards,

Homeopathic Medicine for Ovarian Cyst
by: Maria Gioia Atzori

The homeopathic remedy Lachesis is often indicated for leaf side ovarian cyst. Please, read my article on how to restore restore fertility with homeopathy.
You may want to consult with a homeopathic practitioner in your area that can take your case and follow you more closely.

Castor Oil has a great therapeutic value on shrinking ovarian cysts and should not be used after ovulation if you are trying to get pregnant. In order to increase the quality of your eggs, Maca can increase egg quality.

If you have 5 months to improve your health before beginning IVF treatment you may want to learn more about fertility vitamins.
