Giving a Fertility Specialist a Second Change?
Ok so more on the chiropractor front. I was doing a search this morning on activities in the metro area this weekend and ran into an ad for the place where I go for fertility yoga, Belly Bliss in Cherry Creek. They are now offering a hole list of services other then yoga that include, Nutrition Therapy, Acupuncture, Massage, Chiropractic, and Rolfing (not not ralfing, rolfing). I was very surprised to see chiropractic listed on their website below is what was written under the heading “Recent studies indicate that chiropractic care can help women struggling with infertility. This is especially true for women diagnosed with “unexplained infertility”. The nerves that supply our reproductive organs are located in the lower portion of our back and sacrum. When biomechanical and structural stresses apply pressure to these nerves, they may no longer function at 100%. Interference with these nerve impulses can result in reduced function or over stimulation of the associated organs and tissues, resulting in symptoms. These symptoms can vary from pain, to spasm, to dysfunction of an organ or organ system. Many chiropractic patients have sought care for a low back or pelvic condition and found themselves pregnant! The average patient seeking care for infertility can expect to see positive changes in 3-4 months. This includes improvement in hormone levels, endometrial thickening, and normalization of luteal phases. Chiropractic care can be safely added to any existing fertility treatments” . I had already made an appointment with a natural chiropractor this coming Monday before reading this on the Belly Bliss website but perhaps I will have to make an appointment there too? Oh and in case you are wondering Rolfing is “a process of soft tissue manipulation designed to balance your body by releasing tension and strain. Rolfing moves beyond symptomatic relief, focusing on whole body alignment for sustainable change. Structural work is an opportunity to prepare yourself and your body for a comfortable and aligned pregnancy.” Yeah I know, I still don’t really get what it is either just thought I would give you the definition. Also in recent news, I have been referred to CCRM by multiple people based on people recently becoming pregnant after trying for a really long time. The doctor in charge of these successful pregnancies is Dr. Schoolcraft. Now for those of you who are just joining this blog, CCRM is where this whole thing started for me. I saw a different doctor but in the 2 hour visit in May of 2008 my whole world came crashing down at my feet when I was told I had no eggs and no chance of conceiving on my own…both of which are not true. The first time I was referred back to CCRM by a family friend I just shook it off immediately going back to the awful day but now that I have had two people suggest this doctor, I am thinking it might be worth a shot. On one of the message boards, I also read some encouraging posts from women with high FSH stating that this doctor is willing to work with high FSH’ers. If my appointment at Conceptions doesn’t go as I would like, I will make an appointment with CCRM and try again, I mean maybe I just saw the wrong doctor before??? But I have to say I have read so many great things about Conceptions and Dr. Bush and have read a lot of negative things about CCRM….so I guess we will just have to see.
