I have suffered for years with polycystic ovarian syndrome. I was told by my gynaecologist that in the future I would need assistance in conceiving. However prior to my wedding I conceived my little girl naturally and miraculously as I had not had a period in over 2 years. My husband and I wanted to expand our family and knew that due to my polycystic ovarian syndrome it may take time. I attended a gynaecologist for 10 months taking metformin, clomid, and primolut without ovulating. I was referred to a fertility clinic and received 5 rounds of ovulation induction therapy, a laparoscopy and 1 round of intrauterine induction therapy, with no success. I was weary and very disappointed and we decided to take a break for a few months.
One of my friends recommended Siobhán and told me of her success with fertility treatment. I am a nurse and midwife and would have to say I was very sceptical, but my husband coaxed me into going to see her. I met Siobhán Kehoe in September 2010 after over three years of trying to conceive. She had vast experience and knowledge in all fertility issues. After a few minutes of my first consultation, looking at my tongue, taking my pulse and taking a history she explained exactly what was going on. She felt that stress was primarily the cause of my problems and polycystic ovarian syndrome next so she would have to help me with both. She was extremely confident, professional and open.
Unfortunately she was right I was highly stressed at the time. She also explained the importance of getting a bright red period and to observe for any signs of any egg white discharge which would be very positive signs in helping me to conceive. Leaving her she told me exactly what to do, I had one session of acupuncture, changed things in my lifestyle and diet and took different herbs she gave me. Leaving I felt that I had some control and almost empowered in our journey to conceive however as I was from a medical background I can’t honestly say that I had complete faith.
I saw Siobhán one month later and continued rigidly to do everything she asked me to do. Too my complete amazement I had a bright red period and approximately two weeks later the egg white discharge and last December three months after meeting Siobhán I had a positive pregnancy test.
I had a healthy pregnancy and my healthy baby girl was born at full term. She has brought us a lot of joy and happiness to our lives. I would highly recommend Siobhán to anyone. By meeting her she truly changed our life.
Thanks for reading and thanks Siobhán for everything.
