Thanks much for the information about Clear Passage. I may give them a call to get some more information.

Diana- OMG, that must have be scary...so glad youre ok.
Good to see the your cycle is going smoothly. Ill keep you in my thoughts. Please keep in touch, Punkin.

Hello Punkin: how did your second week at CP wrap up?

All good, I hope.

Yup, I'm fine and thank the big person upstairs from sparing me in that horrible accident. I think he/she loves me from upstairs and wants me around for some reason. :) Losing the entire front axel thing at 60 mph was a true life-re-evaluating blessing.

Hope to hear how all is going. Wishing you a marvelous Monday! Diana

Hi Diana,
My last week went well. It was a very positive experience for me...thanks for asking. I hope it makes a difference for us. I will try on my own this month and then IVF in Sept.
How are you? Did you complete your cycle? I hope you get that bfp and have a healthy nine months. Sending lots of babydust your way.
Have a good night, Punkin

Diana, I read your post on the other thread and I am so sorry to hear about the bfn. I know its terriblly difficult and you have my sincerest sympathy. I hope to keep in touch but I really understand if you dont feel like posting. Take it easy. I wish you the very best with whatever you decide to do next. Youre in my thoughts, punkin.

Hello Punkin: thank you so very much for your kind words and outreach. Very much appreciated!

Yeah, I am sad and bummed, as I hoped for the best., despite the stacked odds at my age... But life happens at its own pace. I believe there is bigger plan somehow in store for me, just not sure what it is....

Thanks again for your kindness and I'd love to hear how your next steps go along. Wishing you a wonderful Wednesday! Diana

 

Quest4babyD - September 12

Hi Ladies,
I have read your posts and have to say you both (all of you) are so brave-Good luck to you all in your quest for lots and lots of healthy babys...

I am scheduled to begin CP therapy on Monday, 8-18-2006 at Florida location. My husband is Active Duty military here at Pope AFB in NC (near Ft. Bragg) and I am a Graduate Student here. I am 42 and we have been trying with NO luck for 7 years.
I am guessing some of that is becuase he spends more time fighting in Iraq and Afg than he does home!

I hope it works. I am totaly against having invasive surgery of any kind so this is really perfect alternative.Is there any advice for someone who is going alone without husband? Is it safe? Is it scary to be alone doing this for a whole week?
I am aprehensive for that reason. Any advice would be really helpful.
Do any of you know how soon you would be able to do a new HSG after having the therapy (to see if tubes are unblocked-that is my problem-both blocked)

Incidentally, Punkin how are you doing and I hope Diana you are well after your axle mishap. WOW! What a morning that must have been for you.
Have a beautiful day ladies.
ND

Hello ND: Congrats on taking the first steps.

No worries about going alone to Clear Passage. I went for the two weeks along. I would think that it would be highly, highly boring for your husband to go along since the treatment rooms are not very spacious (much like a doctor's office in NY) Maybe they are more spacious elsewhere. The therapists are very kind at CP and will do everything to make you very comfortable.

Well, I did CP to compliment my IVF treatments as well. I am using every possible technology available to me at my age of 43. My chances at a complete healthy pregnancy are small (5-10%), but only possible with every possible technology going forward. My DH is in the reserves and is often away. We just freeze his sperm if timing is off for the IVF cycle. I would strongly encourage you to seek IMMEDIATELY clinical RE consultation as quickly as possible. This is just my opinion is based on 1.5 years of 4 different RE opinions but all REs saying time is almost expired for me. It is that simple. My only real option is DE at this point.

For Women over 40, I think IVF is the only fundamentally statistically valid way rather quick way to building a family. FORGET Clomid for sure-total waste of time and NOT helpful to the uterine lining. IUI is not really great statistically either for over 40 folks. Adoption takes a least a year and donor egg almost equally long.

As to the HSG and time needed after CP treatment, I don't know. I would think it is not too long, but the CP would best know. I had an HSG done about 4 weeks after my miscarriage-no problems and all clear. But that was also the case prior to the recent pregnancy.

Please feel free to ask any additional questions. Thanks in advance. Diana

 

kfx216 - October 25

Hi Ladies,

I'm doing some research on Clear Passage and came across your discussion. This seems to be the only place I've found where people have actually gone through CP.

Has anyone had any success over the past few months since you last posted?

I'm 43, have 1 daughter (at 41) and have 2 unsuccessful IUIs this go 'round. I'm not willing to go through IVF due to a gut feeling that I shouldn't, but would love to have another child. CP is interesting, but will require a pretty significant investment since I don't live near a clinic as well as time away from my daughter and my job. Any insights will be appreciated!

Hello Alicia:
hope all is well. SO sorry about the delay. No success so far with me. Still totally healthy.

In any event, I stand by my comments above about statistics, IVF vs. IUI, etc. I hear your reluctance about IVF, but that's the only really CLEAR way to absolutely know if you are making eggs and progress. IUI is ok if you are much younger and have more time.

Clear Pasage was fine as a non chemical way to "goose" up or enhance things in a holistically total body way. Your insurance might cover it under physical therapy which it really is! I got a 70% reimbursement--that helped.

Many BABY BLESSINGS! Diana

 

kfx216 - November 2

Thanks for your reply, Diana. I am sending positive thoughts your way re: a healthy, full term pregnancy. It sounds like you're completely up to date on the best protocol, but just wanted to let you know that acupuncture worked for me the first time (it didn't this time, but my issues really aren't physical for this round)and letrozole, although don't know if it's used for IVF. Acupuncture needs to be done by someone who specializes in infertility, 2-3 months prior to IVF and, in the case of an IUI, immediately before the insemination. Not sure what's best protocol for IVF.

I'll check into whether I can be reimbursed or not - thanks for the tip!

Best of luck to you - I truly hope you are able to achieve your dream and will keep you in my thoughts.

munchkin - November 17

I recently found out that both my tubes were blocked and have obtained information from CP and am considering travelling to Florida for the treatment. I have not attempted to go for Laparoscopy to see how badly my tubes are damaged because I don't want that kind of invasive surgery. My doctor mentioned to me that even with that there is only 25% chance of conceiving after reconstructive surgery if the tubes are repairable. Apart from reading the CP brochure and obtaining statistics on their success rate, I wonder if there is anyone who had blocked tubes and was successful in conceiving? If there is anyone out there I would like some information before I make the trip. Thank you

 

mrstnt - December 11

Hi Everybody! I am considering CP and I've heard nothing but negative comments about it. Of course, this negativity is coming from the surgeon who wants to operate but also family and friends. Hubby and I have been trying to conceive for 7 years. We are actually looking at adoption now, but I wanted natural children first. He's been tested, he's fine. I've had an HSG and Laparoscopy. I was told my right tube is completely blocked and my left tube is partially blocked. I also have fibroids. Do any of you who have gone to CP know if having fibroids will decrease my chances if I go thru this treatment? I'm skeptical, but there seems to be no negative side effects, and it's cheaper than getting the two surgeries my doctor suggested. Please help!

 

kfreedom - January 2

My wife and I went through some similar issues. I was told that the best thing to do is to have the tubes removed (two different fertility centers). Your chances of having a pregnancy through IVF are significantly better. Opening the tubes by surgery (or by CP - not sure how they would do it) would only be temporary thus wasting more precious time. If the tubes are blocked you probably have hydrosalpynx (i think thats the spelling).

RICHMONDTB - January 4

Hi punkin
I hope that you have posted your prior ivf results to Dr. Smith on this board about your embryos not making it to blastocysts stage, they slow down before making it to the blastocysts stage.
I would investigate or post question to Dr. smith on this board as he is a wealth of information on the embryology side of the house.
there maybe a genetic component for you not getting pregnant and would definitely have that checked out before you proceed.
I am doing accupunture and exercise and we unfortunately have been treated at 2 prior less than reputable clinics, and we have suffered miscarriages bc I had a intrauterine scar tissue inside the uterus. we miscarried twice bc of this ashermans.
wishing you both good luck in conceiving in 2007
Brenda

 

liki1313 - July 19

all these posts are quite old, wonder if now, in july 2011, anyone else has either tried the therapy at clear passage and has anything else to say about it, or has gotten pregnant after having it.
i have hydrosalpinx and am considering flying to florida for treatment, but from what i´ve read, no one has had positive results...
any news, anyone?
wonder if it´s all a big hoax... :-(
