Dear all, havin gone thru all comments frm step 1-21 for the very first time as a reader nd user, I must say dis is a very pleasant,godly n inspiring platform dat encourage n also put hope alive in women/mens' lives regardless of individual challenges on ttc.I neva knew abt dis untill wen I went on research abt 'CLEANSHIELD. An aunt of mine in lag recently told me abt it n encourage I buy n use 10 bottles...infact, I jst got dem (10 bottles) @ 4k each yday evenin nd have started only to stumble on dis channel today nd reading experiences of Attibby nd Blendy77-wat do I do concernin dis? Dilenma? I have bein married for over a year now n no preg....b4 my marriage I visited St-Ives cos of my irregular menses nd had series of test including hsg nd wen result came out, it was blocked tubes nd Dr Tunde proffer IVF-he told me infront of my hubby dat my enemy cannot be pregnant unless ivf-i tot d end has come btw my fiance nd I since it was b4 marriage but he told me he wasn't leavin me dat we in it tgeda. To cut d long story short, I rejected d result nd headed straight to ibadan (uch) I met wiv a doc there whom I used his private clinic for laparascopy. Laparascopy showed dat tubes okay-my sistas n broda..u can imagine d result against st.ives. It was then I began series of test which showed I had high prolactin. Being on Bromergon for almost 7-8 months daily nd lata proven prolactin balance. In between my sojourn from abuja where I reside to lag n ibadan, my menses was irregular but while on bromergon it became stable till lately precisely 3 months now dat I hvnt seen d menses again afta I had gone for prolactin test proven stable/normal. Sistas I am confused ooo..dnt even know wat to do again. I have stopped Ibadan trip because of d distance nd d ungodly character of d doctor. Imagine him(doc) given me appointment and I fly all d way frm abj to ibadan nd only to get there nd he tells me he is not in town or dat come tomorrow wen he was d one dat asked me to leave immediately. On a particuar trip, afta disappointment as usual, I ended up in a church closeby nd cried my eyes out. I work nd live in abuja but haven't really gone to see any doc apart from NISA PREMIER where I did jst test alone for almost 200k? I have read inwangobio piece nd abt FERTIL Aid anyways but prayin my hubby agree dis time to go wiv me cos since he was diagnosed low count, he disagreed cos he once had a baby. Sis I must say m glad I found dis site n I op to share my testimony soon.Lastly....wat do I do to dis Cleanshield abeg? Thank u all.

From all hear and read abt cleanshield, it balances the ph level of the body system. Some pple claim it shrunk their fibriod and cured infection. A frnd of mine used it and got preg, she said itcured her stomach problem, she wasn't specific. I have never used it, my stand is that if ur PH level is normal, taking it may cause more problem than good, I may be wrong. But from all u said, I don't think u need it, and btw 10 bottles are too much! I will say use only 3 bottles and watch if it makes any difference.
Abt the delayed period, did u stop the bromo? I was once there, bromo works as long as u continue using it, when u stop it a kind of reverses. The best treatment of high prolatin from experience is diet rich in B vitmins especially Vit B6. I used vit B6 and ewedu. Rushing to enter church service now, will continue later pls

I want to share my story to encourage someone! I've been ttc 1 yr+2months. Had ET Dec 1, produced 4 eggs only 1 fertilized grade 2! I'm on 2ww and waiting on God!
The next time I shall post will be my testimony! Baby dust to all of us!

@ goodtiding, u are welcome to dz unique thread. Your story is touching indeed, but my advise to u is dat you must keep ur trust and faith in God alive, don't give up cos there is no hopeless situation with God. Every one of us here have one story or d other to tell and tru it all we have learnt to trust in God our Lord,who cannot fail. So you are not alone. Your story is semilar to dat of a friend of mine and they have been married for over 11 years now. I have made up my mind travel by next year, so dat i can sit her down and tell her about ivf cos they are not really enlightened and it's not what we can discuss on phone. So pls my dear sister goodtiding can you make ur research about a good ivf centre(hospital), so dat u don't keep wasting time and money. Your disappointment @ ibadan could be God at work, maybe you have read a posts on page 21 by pikinmama,how God delivered her too. Bless u dear, it's well with u.
Re: Anyone Trying IVF/IUI/ICSI (Fertility Treatments)? by goodtidings: 8:11pm On Dec 03, 2012
@udoka2....sorri m replyin u a bit late, I jst got d notification now. I really really thank u for ur concern nd advice. Yes ve stopped bromo cos I'v gone to do prolactin test nd it is normal now, reason why I stopped so as not to affect again oo-my period came yday but very very light -i.e jst drippin (don't know if any1 could let me know wat to do) do I still get d Vit b6 since is normal now? pls do let me know @Godiya always...tnx too for care nd @my swit blendy77....(I call u dat cos I ve seen ur tot to all here) tnx I want to try IUI soon. I really have started d Cleanshield-who knows maybe dat wat brought my period but wll not use d 10 as suggested by udoka...I wll stop at 3. Tnx nd wsh us all d very best.

@ Goodtidings,

Please for Gods sake drop that stuff called clean-shield and anybody who is going for TTc should do so. i am a living testimony, it does nothing than to have rashes and itching all over your body. i saw the advert on the forum here and ordered for 10 bottles from Nigeria alas 2 were taken at the airport in Lagos and the rest which i took could not do nothing as regards to fibroid. My candid advice is don't take any self medication just go and register for any fertility hospital and continue attending only there i bet you with time all things will be fine. Just be patience and consistently be on your knees. For me i was supposed to be in theater on last week Monday for my fibroid surgery but was postponed .To be done on or before xmas . This came as a result on my journey to ivf so after my operation then continue with ivf with the same hospital. so don't complicate yourself just make a research of good ivf center especially st geoerge hospital with Dr Emeka in lagos . I have been communicating with him all procedures am doing i think he is nice. so pls whatever good that worthdoing worth doing nice. you are not alone not only in Nigeria i mean the whole world, not just a problem of old ages including the youths so brace up and smile once.

@ Abbibyy, its not over till its over. Dont relent since your period hasnt surfaced yet. Keep trusting God. A friend of mine tested negative till about 12weeks. She went for a scan after 8weeks of no flow yet both blood and urine were negative and 2 strong heart beats were seen. I always advise peeps not to give up especially if you"ve not seen AF. All the best. What's up with everyone else on 2ww? We cant wait to celebrate with all of you so dont keep mute now.

@ Ariso, diagnosis of hydrosalpynx can also be detected through laparoscopy and HSG. Although TV scan picks it atimes but not very reliable.

@ Olikili what's up with you and the triplets? Hope you're all good. Pls stop by to say hello once in a while at least just to encourage those of us behind you.

@ Believer how are you and the triplets? Hope they are all kicking wella? Just realized I also followed your posts on the TTC thread. So sorry for the mix up. Hope you're good?
