    Has anyone become pregnant using a naturopathic doctor when they were at a point where they could choose ivf versus naturopathic care for pregnancy? If yes I would love to hear how has it (or hasn't it) worked for you? Thanks in advance.

    I haven't considered IVF because my issues are more on the 'cannot stay pregnant' end of the infertility spectrum than the 'cannot get pregnant' send. However, I use a naturopath regularly and have been a patient of his for the last 13 years. You experience will vary from mine because it depends on what your issues are, how they are treated, what methods/treatments/remedies your naturopath prescribes, how your body reacts to them, etc.

    For me, it was a no brainer to see a naturopath. When my doctor flat out told me there wasn't anything more he could do for me, I told him he was wrong and I found someone who would listen. And my naturopath has never let me down. He's not only found several of my health issues but he has been treating them long before my doctor would even think of testing me. And every diagnosis the naturopath has found has been backed up with medical test results. I'm lucky that many of my issues are treatable with supplements, physical therapy and diet changes but I do still see specialists when necessary.

    As to my experience, it has worked but only to a degree. That is because most of my issues are genetic and there's really nothing we can do to change my DNA so we're basically supporting things as best we can in hopes I will carry to term. I will say that I know for a fact that I would not have the four children I do have without the naturopath's treatments. This is because my doctor didn't believe I had an issue for so many years while the naturopath knew I did and treated me for it. The only successes I've had are when I've solely used the naturopath's treatment plan and I've had regular (as in weekly) appts with him during the first trimester.

    But again, this is what has worked for me and it's specific to me. In my opinion , it's never a bad thing to use anything available to you. Natural medicine has it's place in healing just as much as modern medicine does. If you are curious about it, make an appt and go see the naturopath so you can at least have a consult to see what their recommendations would be. Then weigh your options and see which way you would rather go right now.
