Artificial insemination, implant of fertilised egg no success in getting pregnant
I have started this new page as I writing for my sister in law. she has been tryIng to fall pregnant naturally since almost 4 years with no success, she then underwent some thorough tests and it proved that she had glued ovaries and fibroids, her menstruations would always be punctual but very heavy and long. after some minor surgery here overies were cleaned the fibroids taken out and she was told to try again,, yet no success, finally she went for artificial insemination ( after the sperm of her partner had been controlled) and also here no success, now a month ago she started with some heavy hormonal treatment in order to receive her artificially inseminated eggs. she had them inserted 15 days ago and sadly two days ago she did a pregnancy blood test and it came out again negative.
I have witnessed her health and state of mind for years and I can guarantee that she is suffering form serious estrogen dominance ( she is now 37y) and she always avoided the sun at all cost , convinced it would be bad for her skin , so you can imagine her vit d3 level. I asked here for her blood analysis which she had plenty of, i could not believe it but i did not find one analysis with both estrogene and progesterone done , just one with progesterone singulary, so i could not work out her ratio. yet she suffers form similar symptoms which i did , palps , anxiety, acne etc plus she had many fibroids , coming back.
nevermind I advised her many times to add supplements and change her diet,, she, they would not listen, they seemd to want to listen only to the traditional mainstream therapy... no guess what she is taking ? i aksed her to give me a detailed list , her it is :
PROGYNOVA 2MG 3xdaily
ESTRADERM 50 MG PLASTER on every second day
EUTIROX 75 MG DAILY ( synthetic t4 )
DELTACORTENE 25 MG half tablette daily, this she takes as they have found elevated white blood counts.
she does take some cardioaspirin, to counteract possible blood clots, most propably because of a riks of it seeing the high amount of estrogene she takes!
while have the fertilised eggs inside, she took 50 mg of PRONTOGEST progesterone, in injection daily .
At this stage she is obviously frustrated and finally has agreed to listen to me,,, she will do a vit d3 level and i will convince here to check again the progesterone and estrogen level.
Have you got any advice for here??? how much progesterone should she take?? any supplements which further help fertility?
for now she has suspended the hormonal therapy but continues the folic acid , which is the only natural supplement which has been advised to her to take.
I would be more than thankful I also could get you insight on this. I am sure she has always been estrogene dominant to begin with and that this could bee the cause of her infertility.
Many thanks ,
