During the end of 2014,a couple from south Malaysia, Mr. and Mrs. Kong,I have very deep impression of them, they are cheerful and humorous, every time when they come to see me will make my clinic full of happiness, make the busy environment become more relaxing.
41-year-old Mr. Kong, he is 7 years older than his wife, when he comes to see me, he has been married for 7 years, and his wife still cannot get pregnant yet. During this 6 years before, they holding an attitude that to conceive naturally; when reach to 7 years, they realised that her wife still cannot get pregnant yet, age has been getting older, if they still do not want to seek for treatment, it will be much more difficult in the future, maybe will miss the best timing to pregnancy.
A small amount of sperm, ate 4 times fertility drugs in vain
Mr. and Mrs. Kongwent to hospital to do some body examination, but the doctor did not schedule any tests to them, and justask Mrs. Kong to take the ovulation drugs. And, she took the drugs for 4 months continuously, and still not successful to get pregnant. Then, the doctor asks Mr. Kong to do the sperm test. When the result released, then only realised Mr. Kong sperm amount is only 2mil/ml and the motility rate is just 10%, the chance to conceive naturally with such quality of sperm is very small. The doctor then suggests them to try the IVF.
Mr. Kong felt something wrong with the doctor after listened to the doctor, and suspect the profession of that doctor. His wife already took 4 cycles of ovulation pill, and now only the doctor tell them the sperm test is not ideal, cannot conceive naturally is because of this? And his wife ate 4 cycles of fertility drugs in vain.He already lost the confidence to the doctor, and he immediately reject to do the IVF. At last, they come to make appointment with me and choose to condition their body.
Mrs. Kong’s menstrual cycle was regularity, but will bleed when ovulation andgot vaginal discharge issue. And also her blood test report showed that she had Helicobacter pylori inside her blood, and this cause her stomach cannot good in functioning, poor in absorption of food nutrients. They still condition their body patiently even though both of them are busy man.Mr. Kong’s sperm quality increased very fast, just half year of conditioning, the amount of sperm increased originally from 2mil/ml to the ideal amount 60mil/ml, and the motility reached to 65%.
DrH’ng, the ovulation still functioning, why I still have cannot pregnant?
Time flies, in the beginning of this year, they have completed all the courses, and all reports indicated that they had meet therequirements of natural pregnancy;Mrs Kongfelt a bit nervous and ask me: “ Dr H’ng, the ovulation still functioning well, and every time I can grasp the ovulation accurately, why I still cannot be pregnant? Dr H’ng, can I try to do IVF?”
At that time the Chinese New Year is approaching, and I know her feelings and stress, I encouraged her to be relaxed, let the body stay in relax environment. I told her that, with the ideal circumstances, and under the relax environment, give herself three more months to try conceive naturally.
Sure enough, at the end of March, she was pregnant; his is the first pregnancy since they married for nine years. Mrs. Kong feel more stress than before, because of this is the first time she conceive, and also the working pressurecaused her a little bleeding symptoms, and I worried to her, andadvised her to rest more, try to put herself in a relax environment.
