Trying To Conceive After 2 Miscarriages
Hi, Ii am 29 years old. I had my 1st miscarriage in October 2009 (6 weeks) and next in February 2010.
After that around June 2010 I was diagnosed with TB after performing KOCH TEST(AURO-TB-PCR-1) of the menstrual blood. I took akt4 for 6 months. Then after I got my follicular studies done and HSG Test done in 2011. All reports are normal. We also got my husband semen's test done which is also normal.
Lastly I got TNF alpha done and the result was alarming( 688.461 pg/ml) also CD56+CD16+Cell:- 12.3
CD56 Cells:- 21.7
Apart from this all the other tests which we have done were all normal.
Now I am confused as my one gynae says I should get a immune modulation done (take out white blood cells from my husband's blood and inject it to me) and the other one says IVF is a better option.
kindly advise what is best for me:-
1. wait for another 3-6 months and try naturally ?
2. go for the immune modulation ?
It is hard for me to advise since I do not know your entire medical history, but my first impression is that your situation may be treated naturally with a combination of herbal medicine and enzymatic therapy.
Tumor Necrosis Factor is a protein manufactured by white blood cells to stimulate the immune system in response to infection. This could be a response to your previous TB infection. There is also the hypothesis of an autoimmune component that prevents you from carrying a pregnancy to term.
I would strongly recommend enzymatic therapy with
Wobenzym N, which is a natural health product that has been sued in Germany for over 40 years and recommend for inflammatory disorders.
Pro-inflammatory cytokines like interleukin 6 and TNF-alpha may be elevated in conditions that are primarily considered as endocrine problems, such as hypothyroidism, polycystic ovary disease, insulin resistance, diabetes, infertility and stress disorders.
Scientist know that elevated pro-inflammatory cytokines interfere with normal function of the hypothalamic-pituitary axes, which related to hormonal balance, because inflammation can have a direct affect on the function of ovaries.
One benefit of Wobenzym N is the normalization of the hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis. Another benefit would be an improvement of immunologically caused recurrent miscarriages, which can be because of either autoimmune or alloimmune dysfunction.
In autoimmune infertility, the miscarriage is caused by autoimmune inflammation that prevents proper function of the placenta. In alloimmune miscarriages, the mothers immune system is so unstable due to abnormal inflammatory action that it actually attacks the fetus and causes the miscarriage.
Either way, Wobenzym
is an effective therapy for both autoimmune and alloimmune miscarriages.
"One study showed that 124 out of 144 women who had habitual immunologically caused miscarriages were able to get pregnant and give birth to 114 healthy children." (Forum Immunologie 2000)
If you are willing to take 3-6 months and try naturally with the support of natural health, it would be probably the best option before resorting to immunomodulation therapy. I think trying IVF now does not make sense as you can reject the embryo.Natural Fertility Support protocol
The following protocol would be beneficial in supporting your attempt in trying to conceive naturally:STEP 1.Fertility cleanse
for 1-2 months before trying to conceive actively. Do not try to conceive while doing the fertility cleanse.STEP 2.Wobenzym N
daily support while trying to conceive. This supplemnt should be taken on an empty stomach.STEP 3.Self fertility massage
every other day up until ovulation while trying to conceive.STEP 4.Castor oil
therapy every other day up until ovulation while trying to conceive.STEP 5.Pregnancy Preparation Herbs
daily support while trying to conceive.Detecting Ovulation
If you want to maximize your attempt to conceive, I would also recommend using Ovacue Fertility Monitor.
This innovative fertility monitor predict ovulation 5-7 days in advance by using the patented Electrolyte Method, a technique that has been demonstrated to be 98.3% accurate in predicting ovulation in clinical studies overseen by the National Institute of Health.
By using a fertility monitor you will be able to confirm ovulation (make sure to get the vaginal sensor as well).
I believe that using the Ovacue bundle
fertility monitor really speeds up the time required to achieve conception and it's especially useful in couples who are experiencing fertility issues.
When trying to conceive timing is everything. When the egg is released during ovulation, sperm must already be present and waiting to fertilize it immediately. Because sperm can live for a number of days inside a woman, advance notice of your ovulation date is key to achieving pregnancy.
By having sex before ovulation you also avoid old eggs. The egg stays viable for only 12 hours and it begins to degenerate and become old. An old egg or old sperm may well contribute to miscarriage.
The more advance notice you have, the more opportunities you’ll have to make love and the greater your odds of conception will be. By having sex often during your fertile window you will also ensure a constant supply of healthy sperm.
I hope this helps you better understand how natural health can support you while trying to conceive.
