Being a woman we were created to carry children so growing up we all believe that getting pregnant is easy. We ultimately believe that we are in control of when we want to have a baby but for many of us that is not the case. We all have heard the stories of oh I just had unprotected sex one time and got pregnant. I use to be in awe at those stories and just wish that could have been me. I wished it were all that simple. I had to come to grips with the fact that I was infertile.
But I am not alone…….
In reality did you know that getting pregnant is actually not that easy. For women under 35 we only have a 25- 30% chance of getting pregnant each cycle. So for you ladies who have that one and done sex and get pregnant I would say your pretty lucky. I struggled with fertility for 3 years and I felt alone. My family and friends would often ask me “when are you going to have a baby” as if I was in control. That question really urked me because I am a private person so I don’t like to tell everyone my problems (I’m learning to open up). I didn’t feel comfortable telling everyone who asked that question the truth. It was too painful and honestly I felt embarrassed. I had family members who had no problem with getting pregnant cousins who had multiple children so I knew none of them would truly understand what I was going through. It wasn’t until I actually began my fertility journey and TTC (trying to conceive) that I realized infertility is not as uncommon as I thought it was. I was only one of the 6.1 million women in the world who was struggling to get pregnant.
I found help from others…..
As I began to use the internet to research fertility information I found communities of women just like me who were seeking answers and advice on how to get pregnant. I found myself spending hours just reading blogs, threads and watching vlogs about fertility. During my journey I found the sense of community to be helpful and hopeful that I was not alone in this fight to have a baby. I needed hope and these wonderful stories gave that to me. Some women were successful and some were not but all the stories gave me something different that I needed in my journey. I hope leave you all with something special as well.
My dream came true and so can yours.
I was diagnosed with a blocked fallopian tube that was caused by scar tissue after having a HSG test conducted. I chose to unblock my tube naturally by using multiple home remedies and taking vitamins and herbs. I conceived my son naturally 11 months after beginning my holistic routine. I welcomed a healthy baby boy into the world March 15th, 2017. I want to share my journey with other women to help encourage and educate them on natural methods that the doctors may not recommend to conceive. My journey was worth every trial and tribulation because in the end I have what I have always dreamed for a healthy baby.
