How do you get pregnant if you’re not ovulating? This is the question many women ask when they’re dealing with irregular or non-existent menstrual cycles. Is it even possible you regulate your period?
The answer is, yes, you can regulate your period which can help for the return of consistent ovulation. Doctors will often prescribe pharmaceuticals for this purpose, but they aren’t 100% effective, and not without side-effects for many. It can also take many rounds of meds before they work, and most doctors will stop prescribing them after 4 or 5 cycles so as not to increase the patient’s risk for cancer.
This is why some women turn to alternatives to use in conjunction with or in an attempt to avoid prescription drugs. One very effective, but often overlooked alternative, is hypnosis.
Hypnosis is fast, simple, and feels fantastic
In 2003 a fertility study was conducted on women with functional hypothalamic amenorrhea (women who aren’t getting their period). Each woman received a single hypnosis session which lasted from 45 to 75 minutes long. (1)
In the 12 weeks following the hypnotherapy, 9 of the 12 women resumed their periods without any other intervention. 100% of the participants reported increased well-being and self-confidence after receiving the hypnosis treatment.
Just think about that: 75% of these women had their period return with just a single hypnosis session! This leaves me wondering if the success rate could have been even greater with additional focused hypnosis sessions.
For women who choose to take prescribed medications such as Clomid or Femara, they can also benefit from complementary hypnotherapy.
Not only can it help with the effectiveness of regulating menstrual cycles and returning ovulation, but it can also be used to ease the often-reported mood swings and other unpleasant side-effects frequently reported with fertility drugs.
What do you think? Are you willing to try something a little different?
