Five years ago, my husband and me decided to have a baby, however time passed and the children did not come. The tests were not able to explain the cause of the infertility and doctors advised us to try Chlomid, which did not work. The next step was IUI, three attempts, but that was not working. Two years and a half had passed and emotionally I started to suffer a lot, I could not think of anything else and I was not able to be truly happy for friends getting pregnant without any external help.
I consulted a psychologist specialized in fertility problems, but appart from telling me that the only way I was going to be sure of not getting pregnant was if I did not continue trying, it did not help me too much. So IVF was the next step. In the first cycle I only got one embryo which did not result in pregnancy. The next cycle was still worse and we did not get any embryo that could be transferred.
I had tried with Chinese acupuncture at the same time I was doing the IUI and IVF but that was not being of any help. Also followed different regimes to eat healthy and doing sports regularly and so on. I even joined qigong lessons looking for help for relaxation. Nothing worked.
By that time I searched very often on internet anything that could help me, and this is when I found you. I started to receive your newsletter so I could know you better and I found myself reading it each time with more interest. I felt that you knew very well what I was going through and somehow I felt that I was not alone, I liked very much the way you just were there with your words.
One of the times you recommended the book Wherever you go, there you are and I thought that that was the book that was going to teach me how to meditate and if not solving my problem at least I would learn how to feel calm about it. My life was becoming a nightmare due to the infertility and first of all I needed to feel good with myself.
Before the third and last IVF cycle I could afford to do, I also took for a whole month primrose oil and went for holidays with my husband where I practised meditation everyday. The last IVF was a big success and now five years later I have my little three months baby next to me. I will never know what it was: the doctor finally finding the good hormones combination, the holidays, the primrose oil or the meditation but something definitely worked.
I know that during this hard battle the mind can become the worst of our enemies or our best friend, meditation makes the difference. I did not buy your program because I had found you on the web without any friend giving me references about you, but now that I know you much better thanks to your newsletter I have recommended you to friends having the same problem that I have. Emotional suffering in my opinión is much worse than all the injections and drugs. Congratulations for helping people with this problem that makes us suffer so much to cope much better with it from an emotional point of view.
