TTC After a Loss

fertility massage

So, I'm about to jump on the holistic bus. DH found a place that does fertility massages. After speaking to the woman, she's trying to get a whole program up and running fOr fertility issues, in conjunction with a chiropractor. She also looks to include a nutrition component. She got a brief history from me and knows about the 4 unexplained losses. I'm kind of looking forward to doing something new. Do I think that any of it will "work?" Ehhh, not necessarily. But even doing something for my overall health sounds like a good thing.
Any of you ladies have experience with any of this?

4 Losses (2003, 2008, Apr 2012, & Oct 2012)
All RPL and IF testing with multiple REs = normal

3 Follistim & 1 Letrozole + Ovidrel IUIs = BFN

Clomid + Ovidrel IUI  = ???

All AL are welcome

  • Interesting- I've never heard of fertility massage. I did treat myself to a massage on Wednesday night though, and the masseuse told me I need to relax more. Really? Thanks.

  • I don't know about the fertility aspect but I totally thought along the same lines as @Qfrump! A massage is a massage. I've only had one and it was a gift from DH for Christmas. It was a prenatal and wonderful. I hope you like it!

  • I like it. I think it sounds like a way to get some great massage and chiropractic care, work on stress management with an off chance that it will help your reproductive system.

  • The way I see it, anything that can help reduce stress has to be good for you!

    You will have to let us know what you think once she has it all up and running.

  • I'd definitely be interested in hearing how this goes.  I'm planning on talking to my chiropractor about any fertility connections.  He specializes in women (pregnancy) and children but I don't know if there's anything more than what he normally does that could/would help.  Also, his wife has had trouble getting pregnant and several m/cs so I'm thinking it's one of those doesn't hurt but doesn't necessarily help either, depending on the person and history.

  • I have heard of fertility massage and you can buy books/videos that instruct you how to do it yourself as well.  It seems to be used with acupuncture in Chinese Medicine.
