Conception with charting alone for someone with long and irregular cycles

  • Services: FertilityCare
  • Client: Anna from southwest London, December 2014

We decided to try NaProtechnology after 10 months of unsuccessful trying for a baby. I’d always had irregular and long cycles and I suspected that getting pregnant would be a problem in the future. Before I met Freda, I spoke to my GP about it who said that the NHS guidance for my age group (34 years old) is to wait another 3-4 years before they start to investigate the infertility issues. Or to try the IVF, which wasn’t an option for us.

When I started charting, we learned that most of my cycle was infertile with a very short fertile window. We monitored my cycles for about 5 months and just when I was about to contact NaPro clinic about further treatment we discovered that I was pregnant – our baby girl is due in 3 weeks time!

There’s a lot of information on the internet on how to chart temperature and mucus by yourself, however for me, the face to face sessions and an opportunity for Q&A gave me a confidence that the charting is done correctly and no time is wasted. It’s also great to know that if charting isn’t enough, there’s a further support from a team of professionals with the similar ethical outlook and a focus on finding the core of the problem.
