Getting Pregnant Tip


Haven't been on in ages, but thought I'd come on to say what worked for me...

We have been trying for a year and no luck, we got a new cat in May that I turned out to be allergic to, so I started taking antihistamines, and wham bam a month later, pregnant!

I know some people say you shouldn't take certain antihistamines in pregnancy, but loratidine is ok. Noticed after finding out I'm preg that the antihistamine protocol can be prescribed to help implantation in people that have ivf.

Anyway, since I hadn't read this anywhere until I actually got pregnant, thought I would share in case it helps anyone!

Well I was really excited when I read this and then I googled it and there was a study figuring out if loratadine will help prevent hyperstimulation during IVF protocol and it doesn't. Then I found lots of other studies saying that it's use leads to infant deformities (hypospadias-urethra opening is not in the correct place).

"LORATADINE is not recommended during pregnancy. The European Committee for Proprietary Medicinal Products (CPMP) has finalized a EU-wide review of loratadine due to safety concern of hypospadias in newborn baby born to mothers receiving loratadine during pregnancy."

It says not to be taken while preggers so I guess if you believe it helped you become pregnant and you discontinue use as fast as you can after the implantation period.... all of the medical studies are listed in the first link and there's no study linking it to help implantation. It's chemical structure is similar to antidepressants, it interferes with neural reuptake histomine receptors just like antidepressants do with stimulating/blocking seratonine/dopamine nerve receptors. How this relates to implantation success, who knows but i don't think i'll take it (taking enough supplements as it is lol)

I did read on another forum that Robitussin can help you get pregnant. They say it is normally taken to break up the mucus in you nose, but it works to break down the CM also. When you take it (orally still) and your cm is thinner, it is easier for the sperm to swim. That's all over google, but I haven't tried it...yet.

Especially true when one is taking Chlomid. I used to get SO stuffed up with chlomid, was really a great indication of how the cm was doing also. I went through 3 bottles per cycle even just to keep my nose clear and it really worked. I think because aspirin has been shown to hinder implantation I'd much sooner use Robitussin than aspirin.
