To Many Options

So, once I actually find a second job I will have to decide where the money is going.  I mean it is going into my uterus fund, but I don’t know where that money will be directed.  First I thought I would try just a regular OB/GYN to get the initial testing done.

But traditional doctors are pretty unhelpful in my opinion.  Yes, my ultimate goal is a baby, but to get there I would rather FIX what is wrong with me than just work around it.  So I am thinking about seeing a naturopathic doctor.  The great thing about them is that they are willing to work with natural means AND medical means.  So you kind of get the best of both worlds.

The other thing I was thinking of was a chiropractor.  I have read good things about infertile women getting pregnant after going to a chiropractor for a few months.  Apparently it aligns your whole body, not just your back.

Ugh.  I am going to be working hard for my money (not actually doing hard jobs, just working a lot of hours) and I don’t want to through it away on stuff that isn’t going to work.  But I also don’t want to save up for 2 years to do IVF and have that not work (it only works like 25% of the time!).  Either way I risk throwing money away. 

Or I could just become a crack whore or teenage slut.  They seem to get pregnant alarmingly easy.

  1. I have found quite a few naturopaths (in Portland of course because Salem sucks) that DO specialize in woman problems! My real problem with OB/GYNs is that the few I have talked to, and the few my sister have talked to just love to give you pills with the possibility of terrible side effects. The one they wanted my sister on has a fairly common side effect of SHUTTING YOUR KIDNEYS down!!

  2. Oh, please tell me more about the chiropratic thing! I have not heard (or looked into which is probably why I don't know anything about it) about it.Is your sister also having trouble conceiving?I went to an OBGYN. We were able to rule out a few things which hasn't helped any because now she is recommending us go to a fertility specialist in Portland. I don't know if I want to do that yet. Seems like such a big step.

  3. http://www.echiropractor.net/images/EnhanceFertilityChiropracticCare.pdf – This is the most concise information I have found. 75% is a pretty dang good rate! You should look up NaProTechnology. It is pretty cool, but you have to drive 6 hours to find a doctor that does it.My sisters both have PCOS, although one of them is to young to have a baby anyway (unless she wants to go on 16 and Pregnant, then she better hurry up, her birthday is next month), so conceiving is difficult. I initially skipped the OB/GYN and just went to the fertility specialist, but I didn't like him and I am pretty poor so I stopped going. I am looking to start going somewhere after Christmas, I just don't know where.
