There is no question that Circle + Bloom gave me an opportunity every day to relax and just take care of myself – and that is truly invaluable when you are dealing with the incredible stress of fertility doctors and trying to get pregnant.
I am a single woman, entering my 40s and decided to start a family on my own. I was married for 7 years and then divorced without any children. Some years later I found that, while I wasn’t willing to compromise on finding the right man I want to share my life with, I still wanted to have children, and my time on that was running out (my family goes through very early menopause). So now I’m on this journey alone, with the help of friends and family of course. I am a visual artist, living in Brooklyn, NY and I work in arts education.
I have been trying to get pregnant since January of 2010 and spent a few months dealing with the excitement and then disappointment of an unsuccessful attempt. After 3 months I had a very scary month where I had no folicles after having taking Chlomid and I basically decided to do a complete overhaul to take as much control over the situation as I could. I started with a juice fast and then began a whole new diet regimen along with acupuncture and Chinese herbs (prescribed by my acupuncturist). For 3 1/2 months I didn’t get my period, which was very frustrating and of course made me concerned that I was done with my chances, but I remained mostly optimistic out of obstinacy. Then I did get my period again and when I called my sperm bank, Cryos International, where they are unbelievably helpful and supportive, they mentioned that they had just heard about Circle + Bloom and I might be interested in trying it. Of course, figuring it was worth it to try anything that might be helpful that wasn’t prohibitively expensive, I did. Now three months later I am 8 weeks pregnant! I did a lot of things to help this along, so I can’t say any one thing is the thing that made it happen, but there is no question that the Circle + Bloom MP3s gave me an opportunity every day to relax and
just take care of myself – and that is truly invaluable when you are dealing with the incredible stress of fertility doctors and trying to get pregnant. So I’m very glad I used it!
