From the Inside Flap
A memoir of hope for the thousands of women struggling with infertility, from one who beat the odds by simply tuning in to her body and tapping her well of sheer determination.
At a time when more and more women are trying to get pregnant at increasingly advanced ages, fertility specialists and homeopathic researchers boast endless treatment options. But when Julia Indichova made the rounds of medical doctors and nontraditional healers, she was still unable to conceive a child. It was only when she forsook their financially and emotionally draining advice, turning inward instead, that she finally met with reproductive success. "Inconceivable recounts this journey from hopeless diagnoses to elated motherhood.
Anyone who has faced infertility will relate to Julia's desperate measures: acupuncture, unidentifiable black-and-white pellets, herb soup, foul-smelling fruit, even making love on red sheets. Five reproductive endocrinologists told her that there was no documented case of anyone in her hormonal condition getting pregnant, forcing her to finally embark on her own intuitive regimen. After eight caffeine-free, nutrient-rich, yoga-laden months, complemented by visualization exercises, Julia received amazing news; incredibly, she was pregnant. Nine months later she gave birth to a healthy girl.
Unlike the many infertility books that take a clinical "how to" approach, "Inconceivable simply professes the wisdom of giving expert status back to the patient. Julia's self-discovery, and her ability to see her body as an ally once again, yield a beautiful message about the importance of honoring the body's innate powers, and the power of life itself.

The book us a cute story of her journey but she won't tell you exactly what helped her. She tried a whole bunch of alternative remedies to lower her FSH which eventually went down from 42 to 21, but the month she conceived it was 30 if I am not wrong. This I believe is to prove that you can get pregnant with a high fsh.
When she got pregnant finally, in the book I just started crying, not from happiness but from despair because that is not me.
I am glad it worked for her and I wish it was as "simple" as that and I wish everyone had a happy ending like she did.
She got pregnant in the 90s. If she was trying today she would have tried reiki and bodytlak as well.
I know of another woman, one mom in my child's class, who had a similar story. failed IUI then failed IVF. Doctors told her her FSH is too high and her husband's sperm is useless. she tried and tried and tried during her fertile window She gave up. She already had 2 kids, she wanted a 3rd one. She got pregnant randomly, without trying during her fertile time, then she got pregnant again a few years later (was a oopsie) totally unexpected at the age of 46.
There is hope.
Hence a note of WARNING: Julia's book is NOT a run-of-the-mill "how to conceive" book. You will not get a fool proof recipe/algorithm from this book on how to get pregnant. It is the honest, sometimes wordy, sometimes clumsily written account of a woman who chose to face her biggest fears and personal issues brought forth by a huge obstacle in the form of a diagnosis called "infertility". Although she began her journey as a quest to get pregnant, her journey to conception transformed into a quest to conceive who she could become and give birth to a new Julia.
I highly recommend Julia's book to any woman who is at the end of her fertility rope and needs something that tells her: " You will be ok". Julia gave me what I needed most: HOPE. Hence I wish to end with a quote by Charles H. Spurgeon: " Hope itself is like a star - no to be seen in the sunshine of prosperity and only to be discovered in the night of adversity." May you - who is currently reading this- be blessed at the end of your quest with what you most desire.

I would love for her to explore women with higher fsh numbers and in the 40-45 year age range.
