    Hi Soupsop, last month I did go for traditional chinese medicine and acupuncture at Bishan. Last time I did went for Ban Choon Chan for a year but no good news. As for Ovary massage I did try those Javanese massage not sure got help. Do you have any recommendation?

    Yes Tasha, I will do iui next cycle but that depends on DrS's advice. Will be seeing her next Sat for review. How's your AF this cycle? For me very heavy and lots of clots (sorry, TMI) and cramps for 3-4 days. Faint..

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    What about your Tasha? Will you do IUI again? Or you will do differently in your next cycle? Yah, yours is natural or injectable for your IUI?

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    CherrieJoy, yes I will be doing my 2nd iui. Going to see Dr Henry later. dont't dont't get what you mean by natural or injectable iui? The procedure I did is Dr Henry too a tube and inject the wash sperm into my body. I think after this 2nd iui I will rest cos some say cannot take clomid more the 3 times.
    My Af usually will be a lot on my second days no cramp. I'm not sure is it the traditional chinese medicine I see last month help me with my blood clot. Cos usually my blood clot a lot and I can feel it. But this time my second day consider ok not that much n not much clots.

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Good luck to you Tasha. Im sure your Dr will let you know what is the best for you..hehe. Btw, where is Dr Henry's clinic?
    For me, i didnt take clomid as it does not have effect on me. So DrS ordered to do injection (Puregon injection) to stimulate my eggs. Then after 7 days of injection, will have to go Kandang Kerbau Hospital to do you/s scannning see how the puregon works on me and check the size of follicles. That part is Super-ovulation and combine with IUI (procedure to inject washed sperm into the body).

    Where is your traditional chinese medicine? For me i stop traditional chinese medicine since i started seeking fertility specialist.

    Ladies, this will be a rather long post as i just copy and paste my reply cos sometime back one of you pm me for contacts

    i went to rule of thumb at 289 beach rd tel 62955000.
    look for Karen.
    the trial session is $68.
    i signed up package of ten sessions @ $980.

    i went for three sessions on the same cycle before I hit jackpot!
    i did on cd 1, 7 & 12.
    i chanced upon rule of thumb on my cd 1 when I was feeling down seeing af again.
    i saw their banner outside on the first trial massage and was surprised to see they do ovary massage!
    karen attended to me and explained that I can start doing immediately when I'm having my af cd 1 as it helps to clear all the blood and toxin and unblock whatever....
    so I did my first session there and then.

    After my third session, as I have time to spare I decided to try out their foot reflex and asked Karen to arrange someone experienced.
    so I met simon who's really very skillful and good!
    He also mention foot reflex will help as his foot reflex starts off with using a hammer like equipment to knock on the sole. He says can trigger the fertility accupoints.

    This cycle I'm not sure really what's help, cos I did ovary massage, foot reflex, went for holiday after ovulation, as well as hubby and I have been taking the traditional chinese medicine med.

    not sure if you recall, I changed my traditional chinese medicine after my friend conceived after first round of med with this sinseh. So for my case, hubby and me took his med for 4 months before conceiving.

    in case you r interested to try, this is his contact

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Ladies, asking a noob qns here. we were suppose to start clomid on day 2 of AF rite? I remember heard from somewhere that spotting does not count as AF. So now today i had dark brown to slight red spotting. Does it count as AF? Can i start clomid tomorrow?

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    If you have brown red spotting means you AF here. If tomorrow you have more confirm is AF means you can start eating clomid tomorrow.

    I was told to take the first day of heavy flow as CD1. Spotting and light flow not counted.
    Must be heavy and continuous flow.

    She will do a scrub first follow by oil and massage.
    The whole one hour is focus on massage on the acupoints on the lower ab.near to groin.
    The last step is cupping
    The whole procedure is definitely more than one hour

    Which means they only focus on the lower ab. No shoulder massage ?

    My 2nd ivf wasn't a success so I'm going to try natural trying to concieve for a few months before my next one.

    I kinda miss natural trying to concieve. Hee.

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Mintminer i doubt doc has a definite answer on the failure. Ivf really is about trying different protocol. But at least this round i have frozen embies and we will do FET later part.

    So when you planning to do your next fresh?
