Sorry everyone, I keep posting questions at the mo!<br><br>Has anyone else heard about using nutrition alongside treatment in order to help? I have recently been to see a nutrionist regarding endo and she has suggested lots of things which she says can help with fertility.<br><br>She has given me some extra supplements and says I must eat 3 square meals a day, (I used to skip breakfast) plus she has put hubby on some supplememts as well.<br><br>Ha sanyone found this has helped them???<br>or am I just spending even more money on private medicine??<br><br>Any comments??<br><br>Kirsty<br>xxx
TTC for 7 yrs (have severe endo and pcos and hubby has v low sperm) until became pg after ICSI cycle last feb. Now am the lucky mother of perfect little boy called Joshua born last october.

Hello, I have been careful with what I eat. I know what you mean about feeling unsure about spending even more to try and improve your chances! Ive been having acupuncture, which although I havent been sucessful this time I do feel helps me to relax a little. Mind you that could have more to do with having a regular guilt free moan with someone, than the needles. I do feel like I must be boring my friends/family by now, being completely obsessed with my treatment. <br>bye bye Annie

Kirsty<br>I was seeing a Chinese herbalist who swore that what you ate was just as important as any western medicine in trying to get pg.I've also been having reflexology and reiki.<br><br>As far as I'm concerned, don't feel guilty. If you feel it helps then that's all what matters and you won't end up feeling "if only i'd tried this that or the other".<br><br>Good Luck<br>Terri<br>xxxx

I have PCOS and have been told that a low fat/high fibre diet may help me ovulate. Also there is a link between PCOS and diabetes, so alledgedly a low carbohydrate diet may help!!<br>I have also had acupuncture and very nasty herbal drinks. Anything is worth a try!!
