After 2 years of secondary infertility, I conceived naturally! My spouse and I had given up and were seeing a fertility specialist. The specialist told us it would be a less than 1% chance I would concieve on my own due to age (I'm 36) and having tried for over a year, and having antisperm antibodies.

But, the very next month we concieved! I did a bunch of research on antispern antibodies and to me it sounded like an allergenic response (I am allergic to EVERYTHING). So I started takign fish oil, evening primrose oil, L argnine and singular.

I had already been taking vitex for 3 months. It was actually the second month for the singular (I have asthma).

Then Boom, period is late, so I take a test and it is BFP. So I took another. BFP. So I took another BFP!

Holy Crap. I'm actually pregnant.

I'm going to go buy a lotto ticket.
