About 1 in every 6 couples across the world right now are struggling to conceive. Some figures show this to be 1 in 7 or 1in 8 in some western countries but in some developing countries this is as high as 1 in 4!
My husband and I have unfortunately found ourselves in this category. We struggled for 5 years before getting pregnant the first time in the year I turned 40.
We miraculously had natural identical twins after charting my cycles for 9 months. Sadly Chloe and Grace were stillborn at 24 weeks due to being rare momo twins. 4 years on we are still on our journey and living in hope of more children. See more about our story here.
Yet we have been finding out so much about why we struggle. I had stage 4 endometriosis removed through excision almost a year ago (which was a huge surprise) and I don’t seem to ovulate naturally without help. I am now on a special tailor made regime to restore my fertility.
If you are reading this and are also a 1 in 6, please know that you are not alone. You are not just a statistic. I understand your hurts and frustrations. If you need answers as you don’t know why you are struggling or need to know how to improve your chances of conceiving I would love to help you. Find out more here.
