I've just been discharged from the hospital today. After several ultrasounds indicating an absence of an intrauterine gestational sac and a very high HCG beta (15000), It was determined that the pregnancy had lodged itself into my right tube. I underwent surgery yesterday to remove the tube. I now have one non-functioning tube remaining. I guess it's IVF or I just need to accept this and move on. Thanks for your support J. Hopefully you'll be luckier than me.
Still tripping off gen anesthesia. I'm gonna go take a nap now.

!!!BFP!!! but very confused here's why...

Since last week I've been experiencing something rather bizarre. My AF was due on the 4th but instead arrived on the 6th. Well okay, 2 days late, this is not unusual. It was a normal period. Anyway, it lasted for about 4 days then ended uneventfully. Well, about a week later I started spotting (never happened before). This was a very light pink flow that was pretty steady followed by some mild abdominal twinges. I scheduled an appt. with my GYN. The morning of the appointment, I dreamt I had a positive hcg on a pregnancy test, it was weird, but I just figured no worries, the gyn will inform me of anything. So she did an ultrasound and found that I had a cyst on one of my ovaries. She said it doesn't look like anything to be worried about and that I should come back in a couple of weeks to see if it's still there. She said the bleeding may be caused by stress. Fine. But something kept nagging me to do a preggo test. So after I left, I went to the pharmacy and purchased 2 tests. I found the nearest bathroom, peed on the stick and VOILA! Instantly 2 BRIGHT LINES! My heart started racing. I decided not to say anything to my fiance and later that night we went to a party. Afterwards when we got home, I went to the bathroom again with another hcg stick and ONCE AGAIN TWO BRIGHT LINES!
Now, 2 days later, I'm totally confused. How could I have had a period then tested positive? I know the light bleeding was totally out of the ordinary but this followed a real period. I'm hoping this is not a biochemical pregnancy, or a tubal. The bleeding has subsided a bit and I'm still getting twingy feelings in my abdomen. I should also mention that the week the spotting began I was moody as hell. I think I became the bitch from hell but I am calmer now.
I don't really know what's going on. I'm thinking I'll probably go buy some more sticks and see what happens or just wait. I'm afraid that if it's ectopic and I wait too long it may rupture the tube. I dunno what the heck's happening! Am I pregnant?
Silver lining
If this turns out to be just a chemical pregnancy, there is one silver lining. Maybe one of my tubes have been cleared. A meeting of sperm and egg have to have taken place. And for me, this is a breakthrough. I'm not quite sure what would have been the thing I did for this to happen. I recently started taking a much stronger dose of serrapeptase ( 90000 iu x3) a day. I also started taking the thiosinaminum I ordered and also another supplement called Astaxanthin as well as my daily ACV which is so cleansing. Whatever it is, something is working.

6) Multi-vit supplement with damiana and Maca

I've also had 2 courses of acupunture

Many of these supplements are available only where I live, in Asia but that doesn't mean that without some hunting you can't find them in your local herb shop.

In search of Thiosinaminum

So I came across this substance that is derived from oil of mustard seed. Oil of mustard seed interestingly has a long history of homeopathy, much longer than Phizer, Merck, Eli Lilly, Glaxo wellcome and all the other licensed drug-dealing money-hungry vampires out there. Well here's some useful info about Thiosinaminum (still figuring out how to pronounce it).

Thiosinaminum is indicated for dissolving scar tissue, tumors, adhesions, and fibroids. Thiosinaminum can be used for ringing in the ear or tinnitus, especially if the condition is caused by scar tissue or fibrous tissue. Thiosinaminum also may be beneficial for swollen glands and lymph system support, as well as for reducing non-cancerous tumors.
Derived from Oil of Mustard seed, it is a trituration of the crystals of allyl sulphocarbamide. Used as a Homeopathic medicine or simply as a micro-nutritional. (Homeopathic potencies accredit their strength and efficacy to the electromagnetic signatures of the original substrate; these are scientifically created dilutions and succussions of medicines such that generally not even a molecule of the original substrate or medicine is present in the medicine). As a Homeopathic or used simply as a micro-nutritional, it has demonstrated effectiveness against the following symptomology: Thios. is in the chemical group as Urea. It has been used internally and externally in cases of lupus, chronic glandular tumors, and for dissolving scar tissue; and internally for resolving tumors of the uterine appendages.; it reduces enlarged lymphatic glands, resolving the stricture of the cicatricial tissues and the rectum as well. (Clarke)

worth a shot..right? Although it is said that mustard seed oil can burn you, I don't know if this extraction will cause the same symptoms. I'm willing to try.

over the week..picked up a bottle of ACV

Okay so anyone who has ever had B.V (bacterial vaginosis) will know what it is like. That deep itching, fishy smell. Well I had B.V ever since I started having unprotected sex in my relationship with my fiance. B.V is very common! I took two courses of Metrodinazole last year which cleared it up, but it kept coming back. Well now, I am happy to announce that after having drunk Apple Cider Vinegar, the B.V cleared up in the SAME DAY! No douching, just drinking it with water. I also bought some Blackstrap molasses but I only just started taking that yesterday so I cannot report any effects.

last week...Natto

Ok so all of last week involved my experimenting with the Japanese fermented soy product NATTO or NATTOKINASE. I started taking the supplemnets about 3 x a day and the only changes I've seen so far is a LOT of piss. I am going to keep on taking it because I get the feeling (whether real or imagined) that it is cleaning me out somehow.

Does anybody know anything about Serrapeptase and TFI????

I guess this enzyme is just so new on the market that nobody (ie: health "professionals") seems to know a damn thing about it and its supposed fibrinolytic effects. well here's been my experience so far. Since I've been taking it (about 3 weeks now) my asthma is gone! completely GONE. I never really had any real pain so to speak and my pelvic adhesions(which I've been told are severe) have never presented any pain in the past so there is no way for me to know if the serrapeptase is working to dissolve them. I also pee a lot more when I take a dosage (which now I'm up to about 9 a day, with nattokinase, bromelain, papain and some other stuff) and also my pee is GREEN! I dunno if that's good or bad. I recently read that Big Pharma isn't interested in marketing enzymes because they can't patent it, therefore they can't make any money off it. Well, I guess that's just the wonders of capitalism! IVF is like $6000 a pop, so why bother to explore something that may be much much cheaper and totally natural? I'm thinking of doing another HSG in a few months to see if there is any...difference.
