Pregnancy After a Miscarriage

There are many wannabe moms wanting to know the chances of pregnancy after a miscarriage.

I know full well that it’s not an easy decision to make for many families to try again for a baby, as the shock and upset of a miscarriage can run deep into the mind for a long, long time. On the other hand, some families want to immediately try again and put their sad loss behind them.

In either case, there will no doubt be questions that you want answered and what I’m going to attempt to do in this article is to answer some of the more common questions I’ve come across.

Causes of Miscarriage worries

Why am I still getting signs of pregnancy after a miscarriage ?

Many women complain that they actually still feel as though they are pregnant after they have miscarried with morning sickness, sore breasts, and tiredness being common. It’s a sad fact that your hormones will take a while to return to pre-pregnancy levels – but they will do after a month or two.

Can a pregnancy test be positive after a miscarriage ?

Yes it can. The pregnancy hormone HCG can still be in your body for around 3 weeks after you have miscarried (even longer if the pregnancy was quite well advanced).

What are the chances of having a healthy pregnancy after a miscarriage ?

There is certainly hope for women, who have miscarried previously, to give birth to a healthy baby. Some stats show this to be as high as a 75% chance – and that’s even in women who have had multiple miscarriages in the past.

Of course, that figure still might spook some families. However, there is much you can do to ensure the odds are firmly stacked in your favor.

What can I do to help avoid a miscarriage in the future ?

Depending on your reason for miscarriage, which you can read more about in this article : Causes of Miscarriage, there is a lot you can do to help yourself to have a successful pregnancy after a miscarriage. And it really is about taking your health to the next level.

  • Make sure you have a very healthy diet – even consider visiting a nutritionist – and eat as organically as you can. Try to eliminate those pesticides.
  • Consider taking pre-natal vitamins New Chapter Perfect Prenatal
  • Be careful when using cleaning fluids and sprays. Wear a mask and use in a well-ventilated area.
  • Exercise regularly – I’m talking 30 minutes per day. This doesn’t have to be a tough cardio workout. In fact, the more you can vary up your exercise the better :
    • Tough housework
    • Gardening
    • Walking
    • 2 days of cardio DVD sessions
    • 2 days of running
  • Do not smoke, and avoid people and situations where smoke is in the air.
  • Do not drink alcohol – at all….. It’s not a health drink !!.
  • Read though my 100 tips for getting pregnant, which starts with eating tips here : 100 Tips For Getting Pregnant.

I appreciate that the above set of ‘rules’ are very tough for someone in today’s society, but you have to do what you have to do, right ?

How long should I wait before attempting another pregnancy after I’ve mis-carried ?

Doctors usually suggest that you wait for at least one menstrual cycle before trying to get pregnant again. This proves that your body is back to normal.

However, I would tend to leave it for about three months – just to really make sure. And also, three months will give you time to get your emotions back in order as well. You do not want to be trying to get pregnant whilst still stressing from your miscarriage. Please read this article on stress and infertility for further guidance, but always take the advice of your doctor.

Also, consider joining a support group. I have an article on support groups here : Infertility Support Groups.

What is the next step I should take if I want to try for pregnancy again ?

I would urge you to take professional help before going any further. Browsing the internet can lead to some worthwhile information, but also some bad mis-information as well. On this site you will find some very good tips, but even I will admit that I’m not medically trained – just someone with a lot of experience in this field.

However, you will see from browsing the product review section of this web-site that I have reviewed a number of professional pregnancy products. By far the best for someone desperate in having a healthy pregnancy after a miscarriage is Pregnancy Miracle, by Lisa Olson.

This is a home study course that has been tailored for women who are looking to get pregnant after a miscarriage. And, it has a track record of moms (even in their 40’s), who have given birth following previous miscarriages.

I have done a full review of the course here : Pregnancy Miracle Review, or you might want to go directly to Lisa’s web-site by clicking on the book below.

Pregnancy After a Miscarriage

Whatever route to decide to take, there is hope for moms looking for a healthy pregnancy after a miscarriage, but you do need to take some positive action. Endless searching on the internet will just leave you frustrated (as happened to me three years ago). It’s only when I took planned step-by-step CONSISTENT action that I finally saw results.

Causes of Miscarriage

Thank you for visiting my Causes of Miscarriage article.

When first told about a miscarriage, it can often be a confusing and very stressful time for a woman and her family. She might have been advised the reasons why she has miscarried, but never really understood the problem, or what was being said to her. Causes of Miscarriage worries

In this article (one of the most difficult, upsetting, ones that I’ve had to write), I will look to tackle this very complex issue and look to break it down into understandable segments.

I could quite easily write a 50 page document on the issue, and still not cover everything off. But I appreciate that readers don’t really want all the science – they just want to understand what they might have done wrong and (more importantly) how to avoid the causes of miscarriage in the future.

So, I’m going to focus on 5 reasons why women experience miscarriage, although there are of course many more. The good news is they are all treatable.

5 Causes of Miscarriage

These mainly happen to women over the age of 35, although it can potentially happen to women of any child-bearing age.

Abnormality in the Chromosomes

In the 1st thirteen weeks of pregnancy, 60% of miscarriages occur as a result of issues with the chromosomes within the embryo. Very often, the mom does not even know that she is pregnant.

Genetics can play a part, but mothers over the age of 35 with aging eggs also suffer. If you want to be positive about it, consider it as nature’s way of ensuring that only the most fit and healthy eggs are selected for the full term of pregnancy.

Tissue samples can be taken immediately after the miscarriage to see if chromosome issues were the cause of the miscarriage. On a first miscarriage, however, no tests are done as chromosomes are automatically assumed to be the problem.

Uterus or Cervix Defects

Next on my list of causes of miscarriage are issues with the cervix or uterus. The cervix may be weak (and therefore not able to hold the embryo), or the uterus maybe out of shape (leading to the embryo not having enough room). Early labor can be brought on by either of these conditions. However, both of these causes of miscarriage (which will continue if left untreated) can be resolved with surgery.

Immune Problems

Unfortunately, sometimes it’s the moms or dads own body that rejects the fetus, which is the reason behind a miscarriage.

The embryos blood supply can be blocked if blood clots are formed in the placenta. A blood test can trace the presence of the antibodies that cause this (known as antiphospholipid antibodies) and a blood thinning agent can be taken, to reduce any risks.

The father’s genetics can effectively attack the baby. The immune system of the mother is designed to block this, but can allow it through if the mother and father’s genetics are too similar. If this happens then an abortion can result. However, there are a few centers that can undertake fetal-blocking antibody tests.

Lupus can result in anti-bodies being formed against the mom’s body. The good news is that Prednisone can be used to treat it. However, it is a powerful drug and only given as a last result.

Imbalance of Hormones

Progesterone deficiencies are another cause of a miscarriage. This can result in the lining of the uterus being shed prematurely, along with the embryo. Blood tests and biopsies from uterine tissue samples can help detect the issue and supplements taken for hormone balancing.

Miscellaneous Disease Issues

Aids, German measles, malaria and syphilis can all be causes of miscarriage and need to be monitored and treated. High temperatures caused by fevers should also be treated as soon as possible.

Is there anything I can do to reduce my chances of a miscarriage ?

Yes, and it’s all about staying fit and healthy. I have produced an article on Pregnancy After a Miscarriage which you might want to read.

In addition, I have reviewed a number of pregnancy products, and the one that fits the bill for women that have had one (or a number of) miscarriages is “Pregnancy Miracle”, by Lisa Olson. You can read by review of the program here : Pregnancy Miracle review, or if you would like to go directly to Lisa’s official website, then please click on the image below.

Whatever route you decide to take, I do wish you all the best with your future family planning. I do know how hard it can be if you have suffered with a miscarriage. Stay positive, there can be a bright future for you.

Endometriosis and IVF

Welcome to my endometriosis and IVF page.

You may have already been told that endometriosis scars your reproductive system and it can also create tube blockages as a result of abnormal growths outside the uterus. All of this can lead to difficulties in getting pregnant.

First you might want to watch this excellent short overview video on endometriosis.

Endometriosis and IVF Misconceptions

Many people mistakenly believe that IVF is a cure for endometriosis, or that it even reverses it. This is not true. IVF merely works around the problem.

Endometriosis and IVF Treatment

Diagnostic Laparoscopy is a surgical procedure whereby the doctor will take eggs from you and fertilize them in the lab, together with your partner’s sperm.

Once fertilized, the eggs are placed back into your uterus using a catheter.

Here is a short animated video about the IVF procedure :

That will be enough to get me pregnant right ?

Well, although it’s a good start, you shouldn’t rely on this procedure. There are still things that can go wrong. Unhealthy eggs and sperm, can still lead to a miscarriage, and although a fertilized egg is placed back in the womb, there is no guarantee that it is going to embed itself in the womb.

If you are having difficulties in getting pregnant for whatever reason, then you need to make sure that you are leading a fit and healthy life-style.

There are risks with IVF, as well as costs, so you do not want to have to go through the procedure again and again. With that in mind, I would fully recommend you consider alternative therapies to compliment your IVF treatment.

Endometriosis, IVF, plus Alternative Treatments

Homeopathy

The idea of this therapy is to provide you will fragrant smells, which will stimulate the body’s natural defences. Homeopathy is considered a very safe method with no side effects.

A thorough review of your personal and sexual history is undertaken before the treatment commences to ensure the right extracts are provided. There are many believers in this system who claim great results in treating infertility.

Acupuncture

This is another well-known treatment, which has swept across the western world in the past three decades. Specific parts of the body are pierced with needles – sounds painful ? It’s not, and the side effects are very minimal.

The idea of adding acupuncture to IVF treatments is that is relaxes the woman (which is a major plus point for ANY treatment being administered). Studies have shown that 50% of women who undertake acupuncture with IVF actually get pregnant. It also appears to reduce the rates of miscarriage.

Acupuncture is also known to :

  • Help egg production by stabilizing hormonal imbalance
  • Improve ovulation by reducing stress hormones
  • Improve egg plantation by increasing blood flow to the womb

Male fertility can also be improved with acupuncture. One of these ways it does this is by increasing sperm count through improvements in blood flow to the pelvis.

Reflexology

This is another treatment that goes hand-in-hand with endometriosis and IVF. Similar to the acupuncture treatment mentioned above, certain areas of the body are targeted. This time, however, it does not rely on you being prodded with needles, but instead pressure is applied to certain areas of the body – particularly the feet and toes.

The whole purpose of reflexology is to release stress. This, in turn, releases the feel good hormone (endorphins), which promotes better blood-flow, and stabilizing hormonal imbalances. Again, this treatment is free from any side effects.

Summary

As with any therapy, or treatment, it is always best to confer with your doctor first and make sure that any treatment is administered by a qualified practitioner, to ensure maximum success and minimal harm.

IVF Success Program for Endometriosis and IVF

The three alternative therapies I have mentioned above will obviously cost you money and unfortunately some of these alternative / complimentary treatments are not cheap (especially if you have a series of them). You could be looking at a couple of hundred dollars before you start to experience any real benefit.

Therefore, as a starting point, you might want to consider a course developed by Diana Farrell, called the IVF Success Program. I have done a full review of this course here : IVF Success Program review.

Or you might want to visit Diana’s web-site directly from the following link (Please click on the image below).

If you are looking to maximize the benefits of your IVF treatment, then Dina’s course is in a league of its own and well worth looking into.

IVF Risks & Complications – Should You Be Worried ?

Over the years I have often contemplated what life would have been like without IVF (in vitro fertilization) treatment. There is no doubt that this treatment has brought joy to countless parents, who might not otherwise have experienced parenthood.

That said, as with all treatments, there is always an element of doubt and any potential dangers should not be brushed over lightly. The potential risks of IVF to mother and baby have been widely discussed during the past 20 years, but do those fears have any foundation and is IVF safe today ?

You’ll be relieved to know that the risks are actually perceived as slight, and acknowledged to be higher for babies born to moms who are older than 35 years of age. Parents & Baby image

Further good news is that PGD (Pre-implantation genetic testing) is available and is a test which checks embryos. This enables doctors to pick the ones for implantation which are the healthiest and free from genetic defects.

Firstly, I’m going to look at some issues associated with in vitro fertilization and, later, will look to see what’s available to minimize the IVF risks to mother and child.

OHSS or Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome

This can occur in 30% of women undergoing IVF treatment. This can lead to painful, swollen ovaries. and in which heartburn and sickness can result. The symptoms can be eased with medications although in more severe cases the woman might be hospitalized.

Ectopic Pregnancies

This is a potential risk with IVF, and occurs when the fertilized egg embeds itself outside of the womb.

Premature Births

In 2004, the BBC reported that Dutch researchers had discovered that premature births were approximately doubled in women that had conceived with the help of IVF treatment.

Birth Defects

This is open for debate but it has been discussed over the years. In 2002, Western Australia reported twice as many defects in babies born through IVF treatment.

However, in a June 2010 report on the Medscape.com website, they found that approximately 4% of births following IVF treatment resulted in some form of major birth defect (e.g. intestinal malformations). But, it was reasoned that this is not actually any different to non-IVF treated births.

Minor defects (such as a cleft lip or cleft palate) are also reported in this form of assisted reproductive technology.

Pre-Eclampsia

In October 2011, the Daily Mail’s online newspaper reported that moms were likely to experience a 50% increase in suffering from pre-eclampsia through IVF treatment. The theory being that the placenta might suffer changes as a result of the IVF treatment. Mothers that experience pre-eclampsia could be treated with drugs – at least to help the rises in blood pressure. Although blood-clots, and failures of the liver and kidneys are also common.

Placenta Praevia

In February 2010, Reuters news agency reported on a study that concluded that 5% of women who got pregnant with IVF treatment developed placenta praevia. This is compared with 1.5% of naturally conceived babies. This complication can lead to heavy bleeding and is more likely to occur with moms who have previously had a surgery on the womb such as a cesarean section.

Ovarian Cancer

The New York Times on-line edition reported in November 2011 a summary of a Dutch research study. This concluded that women who had IVF treatment were over 4 times more likely to develop ovarian cancer. It should be noted, however, that ovarian cancer, even with IVF, is still relatively rare in women under 55 years old (0.71% of the population).

Issues with Lupron

Lupron is typically injected as part of the IVF cycle and it is used to dampen your normal hormone production. This enables the fertility drugs to work unhindered. As a downside to this, you might start to feel menopausal due to suppressed estrogen levels and this can result in hot-flushes, headaches, mood-swings and even depression.

Acupuncture is an option to help the side effects caused by Lupron and there is a suggestion that it can actually improve conception.

If you don’t want to run the risks posed by Lupron, mentioned above, then there are actually alternatives : Ganirelix and Cetrotide.

Of course any medical treatment options should be discussed with your IVF fertility doctor first.

IVF Failure

Many women pin their hopes so much on IVF and expect this to the ‘Magic’ that they have been looking for. So when it doesn’t work, there is a real risk in the woman experiencing depression. Here, support groups can help greatly.

Financial Burden of IVF Treatment

You might think that this is a bit of a strange risk to hi-light. After all, for many parents that are trying desperately hard to have a child, they would do absolutely anything and pay whatever it takes.

But you don’t want to be bringing up a child, having spent all of your money – or even worse having run up crazy debts what you are going to find difficult, if not impossible to pay off.

There are options, however, that you might want to consider :

The IVF Risks Shared Financial Program

This is not available everywhere, but you might want to ask your fertility clinic if they participate in such a scheme. Basically, it allows you to get a percentage of your money back if you fail to get pregnant as a result of your IVF treatment.

Whilst this all sounds good, you MUST read the small print before you embark on any treatments. There are often lots of clauses that could trip you up and leave you further out-of-pocket than you might realize.

Usually you will need to qualify for any such schemes. Not surprisingly, the companies offering the scheme want to ensure that they offer this to moms who are likely to actually get pregnant. Therefore reducing their own financial risk.

Looking for Cheaper IVF Treatments in Other Countries

This should not hold the fear it once did. Now there are some excellent clinics in, for example, Asian countries that offer treatments at a much cheaper rate than their western counterparts – even after you include transport and hotel costs.

Other Risks

There are arguments which suggest that mothers are unwittingly setting themselves up for multiple IVF births. However, back in July 2008, the BBC ran an article reporting on comments made by Dr Norbert Gleicher, from New York’s Center for Human Reproduction : ” In my opinion patients are being misled and put to unnecessary expense” he said about the common view that twin pregnancies carried significant risks to both mother and child.

How can you reduce the problems associated with IVF ?

As we have seen there are IVF complications and therefore the aim is to reduce these risks as much as possible.

With that in mind, I am currently working with fertility expert Diana Farrell, the creator of the The Full Embrace™ Pregnancy Success Program, who has produced an excellent IVF manual, titled The Full Embrace™ IVF Success Program. I really have struggled to find anything else to compare it with.

IVF Success Program Review

Welcome to my IVF Success Program review. This is the popular course authored by Diana Farrell.

Many thousands of women are currently going through In vitro fertilization (IVF) treatment. For some wannabe moms, this can be a costly and distressing experience. For others it can, of course, be an extremely rewarding experience, resulting in the birth of a baby boy or girl.

For the unsuccessful families, they take infertility treatment for granted and ‘automatically assume’ that this ‘miracle treatment’ will work for them, with no effort on their part. Unfortunately, life isn’t like that, conception and pregnancy is not guaranteed.

The good news is that you can greatly increase your chances of becoming pregnant if you prepare your body, both physically and mentally, for the treatment. Even better news is that you only need to make a few life-style tweaks to really improve your chances of IVF success.

Not only will you be increasing your chances of conception, but you could also be reducing your stress levels, the risks from IVF, and your medical bills.

Unfortunately, there is little good information on the internet regarding what you need to do when undertaking IVF treatment – and what is out there is either outdated or inconsistent.

Having searched this topic for quite a few months, I’ve returned to an author who I have a great deal of time and respect for. Diana Farrell is already known to www.trying-to-get-pregnant-site.com and we have reviewed her pregnancy courses in the past.

Who is Diana Farrell ?

Diana Farrell is a researcher and author in women’s health issues. She has also suffered infertility and therefore speaks from the heart and with quite a bit of personal experience. She is the author of the very successful Pregnancy Success course.

In her follow-up course the “IVF Success Program” (which I will review below), Diana focuses on how to be successful with IVF treatment.

What is the IVF Success Program ?

This course is set against a holistic system of recovery. That means that Diana looks at more than one piece of the puzzle. As she points out, she is not affiliated to any IVF clinics and is not out to promote any particular brands of herbs or supplements. Her interest is merely in providing the best information possible, which aims to increase your IVF treatment success.

It’s important to understand that this course covers all eventualities and takes into account women suffering from :

  • Hormonal problems
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
  • Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH)
  • Endometriosis
  • Multiple miscarriages
  • Reproductive adhesions
  • Women who are in their 30’s or 40’s
  • Plus other infertility issues

In the early chapters of the book, Diana talks about treatments and lifestyle changes which can increase the speed and the rate that women get pregnant. And these lifestyle changes are not just any old theories, but are scientific discoveries form respected institutions in the USA and the UK.

Other tips and tricks, later in the book, are reported to increase pregnancy by up to 3 times. Whilst another home-based procedure can double the success rate of the IVF procedure.

Throughout the whole of the IVF Success Program, Diana makes sure that the course is easily understandable. There is no point in having a home-based course if you don’t understand half of what’s being written.

It’s worth saying again, that all of what Diana teaches is backed up with scientific case studies – so you know that this isn’t just a load of cobbled together wives tales.

There is a useful tip provided which is reported to reduce miscarriages in IVF pregnancies. Whilst another piece of advice helps women who have had a succession of unsuccessful attempts at getting pregnant.

Food is greatly considered in this course. Particularly foods that have a damaging effect on female fertility. You’d be surprised at how easily it is to ruin your chances of conception through what you eat.

Supplements are also given generous consideration as the right ones can help ovary function by nearly 60%. Other supplements are mentioned which help : PCOS, embryo survival, and women with problematic uterine and follicular Doppler flow.

Herb advice is also given showing which ones improve the implantation chances of the fertilized egg.

But it’s not just about what you should be taking. Diana, also discusses the herbs and supplements that need to be avoided by men and women who are looking to start a family.

Exercise and fertility massage is covered making sure you do the right forms of both of these disciplines.

Even psychology is discussed and in particular the factors that can affect conception. As with all of the issues raised in the IVF Success Program, Diana has a solution on how to overcome the problem.

Finally in this part, Diana helps you find the right fertility clinic; how to deal with the costs of IVF; and how to communicate with your friends and family about your IVF treatment.

Not to be outdone, men are also considered in this course, showing one idea that increases sperm quality by nearly 40% and providing advice on a particular herb that increases sperm count. On the flip-side there is advice on what a man should avoid doing if he wants to avoid lowering his sperm count. Just like women, there are foods that men need to avoid if they want to maintain their sperm counts.

In chapter 11 the actual IVF treatment is covered in quite some depth. Preliminary treatment options are covered, as are fertility testing for both men and women. IVF stimulation protocols are looked at and also how to do fertility drug injections.

Oocyte retrieval; post retrieval medications; and sperm retrieval are all explained. If you’ve ever considered Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) then this procedure is covered within the course; as is Comparative Genomic Hybridization (CGH) and Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI). There’s even a section on Assisted Hatching.

Then, to prepare you for the actual treatment, the embryo transfer procedure is explained as well as what to do during the two-week waiting time that you will have to endure. Supplements such as Progesterone are explained and extremely useful tips are provided to increase your implantation success.

Home pregnancy tests are covered to assess if they are right to do and the 12 weeks of pregnancy monitoring is covered – along with any necessary precautions.

Donor eggs, embryos and sperm are all discussed as part of the third-party reproduction section.

IVF risks are all covered. These include : placenta problems, preeclampsia, gestational diabetes, ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome, twin to twin transfusion syndrome, and premature births. It’s important to know what these are and what you can do about them. This will help you approach your IVF treatment with much more confidence.

Unfortunately, with IVF treatment, there will be side effects. But again, Diana explains what these are and what you can do to minimize the effects.

Do you know there are other options outside of IVF ? GIFT and ZIFT are both explained and you might consider that these are actually better options for you.

Finally in this section, if you have never thought about what to do with any remaining embryos ? Diana explains the options.

In chapter 12 you are physically guided through what you need to do. For example :

  • 11 steps you need to take at the start of your journey to prepare for IVF.
  • 4 intermediate steps for slightly older women with a variety of complications.
  • 2 advanced steps for even older women with specific types of infertility.
  • 1 big step for women who have even started their menopause, or have major premature failure of the ovaries.

Additional Benefits of the IVF Success Program

By implementing some of the advice giving in this course, you will also experience some pleasant side effects. These include : stress reduction, an improved ability to sleep, and an all-round feeling of calmness and serenity.

Physically, you might see improvements to your hair, skin, and nails and also see a greater sex drive. Longer term, your body weight and physical appearance might also be improved.

All-in-all, everything is covered in this magnificent course and it is fantastic value for money.

However, there is more………………

Bonuses

As always with Diana, her courses came with a stack of relevant bonuses. Just to illustrate the point, I’m going to briefly run through the ‘extras’ here.

1. IVF Cost Savings Secrets

This is a guide provides Diana’s top ten ways to save money on your IVF treatment. This is a vital resource as IVF can be very expensive. And it is this expense which can ultimately prevent some families from concluding, or even starting, their treatment.

2. IVF Planner & Journal

This, for me, is one of the most important elements of any IVF success program. Whatever system you decide to follow, I can’t stress enough how important to plan your treatment and to track what progress you are making.

When you write down your goals you really do increase the chances of them being successfully achieved.

3. Recipe Book

When having treatment for IVF it is crucial that you stick to a fully nutritious diet. I have touched on this subject <here>, but this book really takes it to the next level. You really can eat your way to a success pregnancy.

The food program set out in this book is designed to boost your fertility, giving you the best possible chance of your IVF treatment succeeding.

4. Meditation Guide

I have already high-lighted on this site how damaging stress can be for fertility and this has been confirmed in numerous professional studies. Even if this wouldn’t normally be your thing, meditating is a key component for reducing stress and therefore it is important to build this into your overall approach.

Meditating does not have to take much time out of your day. Even just a couple of minutes to completely relax will greatly improve your success chances with IVF treatment.

5. Yoga Guide

This is another element I have discussed on this site. Similar to the meditation I mentioned above, yoga is not something that everyone practices and there is an art to it. However, you do not need to be a master of this for the purposes of increasing your IVF success rates.

In this guide, Diana teaches simple techniques that you can even use whilst working at your desk.

6. IVF Success Program Lifetime Updates

This is where this course shines above many others I’ve seen and also beats the books you can buy in your local shop or Amazon (see below).

Diana is offering a full lifetime updates for free. Of course, one would hope and expect that you will soon be successful with your IVF treatment and won’t, therefore, need lifetime updates. However, it is comforting to know that they are available and also confirms that when you buy this course it will already be fully up to date.

The updates also apply to all of the additional publications mentioned in this ‘Bonus’ section above. They are all updated free of charge.

How can you be sure that this program works ?

I have done a lot of research regarding some of the most successful IVF complimentary programs. I am very confident that, if followed correctly, this course does offer you the best chance of assisting you with a successful IVF treatment.

Diana’s site does provide 10 success stories, which are well worth reading. Even if you don’t end up getting the course, the confidence that you will get from reading about other women’s successes will really lift your spirits.

What about books on Amazon ?

There are a lot of cheap books on Amazon and here are some examples : Amazon books on IVF. However, I have a few warnings here :

  • Some of the books listed are nearly 10 years old. That’s why you can pick them up for just a couple of dollars. IVF techniques have moved on considerably in those years and you could be wasting your time and money following outdated methods.
  • Many of the books are designed just to tell you about IVF treatment and what it entails. They are not designed to prepare your body for the treatment, like Diana’s IVF Success Program is.
  • You might not be aware that it is very easy to get a book published now. There is a company called createspace.com that enables ANYONE to get a book produced and easily published on Amazon. You no longer need to have the backing of a publishing company. So what does this mean ? Well, some books for sale today could potentially be from marketers, and other people looking to make a quick buck, and not necessarily from people with experience in the chosen field. Do you really want to take medical advice from a marketer ?
  • You are not going to get updates from a book purchased from Amazon, or anywhere else for that matter. As mentioned above, with the IVF Success Program you will get lifetime updates. With an Amazon book, it might be out of date in 3-4 months’ time (and bear in mind that even brand new books were probably researched and then written 6-12 months ago).

Whilst I’m not saying that any of the points above apply to any of the books on my Amazon link, you do need to be careful of what you are buying. That is why I’m very cautious of the books I recommend (unless I research the author and the subject matter doesn’t change much).

What should I do next ?

If you are undergoing IVF treatment, then that is already a costly experience and the last thing that you will want to do is shell out more money. I understand that.

Because of this many women result to picking up free tips from the internet and there is nothing wrong with that…. To a point.

I’ve obviously designed this site to provide loads of free articles on all aspects of infertility. However, even I will acknowledge that just reading through my articles (or anyone else’s for that matter) will not get you pregnant, or guarantee your success with IVF or any other form of assisted reproductive technology (ART).

I have seen too many women spending months and months searching on-line and still no closer to getting pregnant. My answer is always the same. Free ‘tips’ will only get you so far. From my experience, and that of many others, it is only really a professional plan of action that will get you to where you want to be. Please, please, don’t fall into the trap of so many by just flicking from web-site to web-site (in hope) for months on end.

I have deliberately not mentioned the cost of Diana’s IVF success program, as she is planning to increase the costs and I don’t want to provide outdated information on here. Take a look at Diana’s site, by clicking on the books below, and I think that you’ll be presently surprised at what you’ll find and the cost of the course and bonuses.
