A new plan

We've had enough of IVF. It's time for a new plan.

I went to see a new doctor last week. He's an advocate of natural fertility, which is not particularly something I have time for, but I may as well be doing something while I'm waiting for my body to let me know what's next. New Doc thinks my recurrent miscarriage problem, coupled with my high FSH, is indicative of an autoimmune disorder. I welcome such a hypothesis, as the bad luck theory just doesn't cut it for me any more. New Doc has put me on Naltrexone, an opioid receptor antagonist used to treat alcoholics and drug addicts. Low dose Naltrexone has had some success in clinical trials for autoimmune disorders such as multiple sclerosis and Crohn's disease.

In the meantime, Old Doc will monitor my FSH while we try naturally for a few cycles, followed by a few cycles of Clomid with follicle tracking, and then, if my acupuncturist is successful in lowering my FSH level, we will have one last go at IVF.

So it's a plan. A clueless, shot in the dark, last ditch attempt at salvaging what's left of my dwindling fertility. But it's the only plan we've got.

LDN as a fertility drug....I am hoping that it works for you promptly.

Narcan: FDA approved since 1984

Narcan, also called Naltrexone, has been FDA approved since 1984 for reversal of narcotics overdose. It reverses the sedating effect of opiates by binding to the opioid receptors in the brain. Narcan is available in the hospital operating room where anesthesiologists use it to wake up the patient after the operation. It was a surprise for me to find out that this commonly used drug has other very important uses at a much lower dosage as an oral capsule. Medical scientists have been carefully studying its effect on the immune system, and its clinical benefits for a host of disease states for the past 20 years.

Low Dose Naltrexone, (LDN), How Does it Work?

The beneficial effect of low dose naltrexone, LDN, was discovered by Bernard Bihari, MD, a physician in New York City who found that a small dose (3 mg) of naltrexone taken as a capsule at bedtime blocks the opiate receptors in the brain for a few hours during sleep, which then stimulates the brain to increase production of endorphins over the next 24 hours. These endorphins then stimulate the immune system. Although Bihari did much of the early clinical work, Zagon did much of the groundwork with animal research studies at Pennsylvania State University.

LDN Effective for Crohn's Disease

A recent publication in the Jan 2007 Journal of Gasteroenterology on the use of LDN in Crohn's Disease, was the first breakthrough publication to appear entitled,

Low-Dose Naltrexone Therapy Improves Active Crohn's Disease by Jill Smith MD.

Hello. I just began low dose naltrexone o 1 1/2 cycles ago. I'm on my 17 cycle trying to conceive. Conceived on 1st round of clomid but it was ectopic. 3 more rounds clomid with no pregnancy. went back to natural cycles. No herbs, no drugs no nothing. still nothing. Heard about naltrexone and it's role in fertility. I just finished a full cycle and it seemed to help. I spot continuously through the luteal phase even though my hormone profiles have been normal. Doctors can't explain it. I hope I acheive a pregnancy soon and I wanted to say congratulations to you!
