Like most people, we thought getting pregnant would be easy. After all, people all around us seemed to be having babies.
After "why us?" and "it's not fair" we knew we had to do as much as possible to make it a success.
The (very) short answer is that my wife had leukaemia twice and in the end the only treatment option was going to make her infertile.
Before undergoing the critical phase (a bone marrow transplant) we went through some partial IVF cycles to freeze embryos for later use.
We managed to get 8 embryos but that was it. We would not be able to get any more.
If we did not have a baby with these we would not be able to have our own family.
Fast forward a few years and, fortunately, my wife was cured.
We began to consider starting a family but were aware of the odds and our fertility doctor advised that our chances were likely to be even lower.
So, we decided to do everything we could to give ourselves the best shot.
We spent thousands and thousands of hours researching everything that could boost IVF success rates.
We come from a medical and science backgrounds (our family has a clinic in Switzerland) and have been studying natural remedies for 23 years so we knew it was critical that any step we took was backed by scientific evidence.
We were not interested in things that someone “swore by” online or any "mystical" new-age therapies. We wanted proof.
Our fertility doctor was a world-leading expert in IVF but his guidance was, unfortunately, limited to “medical” treatments.
We were delighted, then, to discover that there were lots of simple natural remedies proven to increase your chances of becoming a mommy.
Many of the steps were shown to make a big difference.
We left no stone unturned and found that by tweaking our diet, harnessing the power of nutritional supplements, avoiding certain toxins, obtaining the ideal IVF bodyweight, becoming “fertility fit” and more we could make a big difference to our chances.
We took these steps, made a plan and followed it.
Then it was time for our embryo transfer.
The clinic suggested thawing 4 of the embryos we had stored even though we only wanted to transfer one at a time.
And then it happened: the phone call.
"I'm afraid half your embryos died during the thawing".
All the emotions we'd experienced before came flooding back. Surely we'd had our share of heartbreak already?
So, from 8 embryos we now had 6.
What helped us stay positive was going through our plan and reminding ourselves of the effectiveness of the steps we'd taken to prepare.
Fast forward 2 weeks and it was time for the pregnancy test. The 2 minute wait seemed like 2 hours.
Then we flipped the tester over and it said "pregnant".
"Oh my God we're pregnant! We've done it, we've really done it!"
As you can imagine, we were both in floods of tears.
After the years in hospital, the drugs, the hair loss, being told we'd never have children, the relationship struggles and the financial strain we'd done it.
We'd achieved our dream.
The heartbreak, the pain, the loneliness melted away. We'd wanted this for so long and our dream was going to come true.
9 months later our little miracle arrived. A beautiful baby girl who stole our hearts.
The plan had worked the first time so we followed the same steps when we tried for a second child. To our delight it worked again.
According to the doctors that should not have been possible.
But, we'd done it.
We'd done it by finding out what works, by believing in it and following the steps.
I'd like to be clear about one thing.
IVF is a miracle of modern medicine. If it hadn't been invented we wouldn't have our two daughters.
But, there's a problem...
Fact: Success rates are low (21-22% per embryo and 26-28% per cycle according to the latest Government stats). Click the link to check them out for yourself.
Sure, some fertility clinics boast higher "success rates" but these are often not what they seem.
In fact, the National Institute for Health heavily criticised clinics' misleading success rates but, of course, higher percentages are better for business.
To make things worse your chance of success decreases with each cycle and the financial and emotional cost means we all have our limits.
And then there's the evidence that multiple cycles increase health risks to mother and baby.
But, there is hope.
Well, of course you would… who would ever say no?
The real question is — how can you increase your chances?
There are countless things out there that supposedly improve IVF success rates, so where do you start? What do you pay attention to?
Let’s look at supplements as an example: there are thousands of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, trace nutrients and other supplements available.
How can you know which ones to take and, importantly, which to avoid?
The reality is that you will never find a magic pill for success. It doesn't exist.
But we were still able to get amazing results because we used our 23 years experience studying natural remedies, spent 5 years researching IVF and figured out which supplements are proven to increase IVF success rates significantly.
Just take a look at the photo below…
Yes - that's right, it's a photo of our two (beautiful and cheeky!) daughters. Without discovering the right IVF supplements they wouldn't be here today.
Empower yourself, increase your chances, experience the joy of becoming a mommy.
We've condensed 23 years of expertise, 5 years and thousands of hours of research together with 64 studies into an informative 40 minute video guide that you can access anywhere, anytime.
All the supplements covered are backed by scientific studies that prove they increase success rates.
Critically, we only use studies showing real-world results, not theory or animals that you'll often see.
These things tend to be buried in complex scientific research papers (sometimes in foreign languages) so we have made them easy to understand and to the point.
Why a video?
We have tried different ways of getting the information across and based on feedback we have found that a video-based guide is the best way.
With fertility our biological clocks are ticking so a lengthy book that takes weeks to read can do more harm than good.
Handy Action Step summaries providing a distilled guide to real-world actions you can take today to assist you on your reproductive journey.
To ensure you get the most out of the guide you'll also get a step-by-step email "implementation" series detailing the steps to take to improve your chances as quickly as possible.
Our bodies’ natural fertility cycles give us the answer.
You are born with all the eggs you'l ever have and around 3-4 months before ovulation a number of these eggs will undergo a critical transformation to develop into mature eggs.
In men the situation is slightly different as sperm is produced every day but it takes 2-3 months for them to reach maturity.
Based on these time-frames a preparation period of 3 months is ideal.
Of course, longer is likely to be even better and if you have a cycle planned for, say, 6 months away your best option will be to start preparing now.
What if you have a cycle in less than 3 months?
With fertility the clock is always ticking so we have to be aware of the impact advancing age has on success rates.
If you have a cycle planned less than 3 months ahead then you will still be able to improve your chances so please don't think you're too late. They're not going to be as effective but they can still help.
Our promise to you: if you give yourself 3 months your fertility WILL improve. In fact that's not just our promise, it's the promise of the 64 independent scientific studies referenced in the guide!
The studies used in the guide show real-world results of people like you and me.
They involve people going through IVF and measure how much certain supplements increase success rates. They are not based on theory or animals.
The studies appear in some of the most prestigious medical journals from around the world and have been carried out by institutions like Harvard University.
The supplements WILL work for you.
In fact, we're so confident that the Ultimate Guide to IVF Supplements will increase your chances that we give a 180 day no-questions-asked money-back guarantee.
Not 30 days, not 60 days, 180 days.
We couldn't do that if the guide wasn't effective.
One of our members put it best....
"I heard about the Ultimate Guide to IVF Supplements in an online forum and I had been sceptical about it, but eventually decided to see what the fuss was all about.
The guide turned out to be very informative.
I like how they back up everything with actual scientific studies and provide the references in case you want to look them up.
I felt confident about taking the supplements because of this proof and I had nothing to lose with the 180 day guarantee.
I just WISH I'd found it at the beginning of our journey!!!
When you start to discover that there are lots of things you can do to increase your odds your dream of having a child feels much closer.
I would imagine what it would feel like snuggling up to my baby, feeling the warmth of their little body.
I'd see my partner tickling their little feet and making funny noises to make them laugh. And the smell, the sweet smell of my baby's skin.
No longer did this seem a distant dream.
I felt more empowered and in control."
The Ultimate Guide is the supplement plan we wish we'd had when we started our journey.
But, we were lucky.
Our medical and science backgrounds and 23 years studying natural remedies had taught us we needed to find things that had been proven in scientific studies to increase IVF success rates.
We were also fortunate as we had access to research resources not available to the public through our clinic.
For over 5 years and thousands of hours we researched everything and anything that had been proven to boost our chances.
We then developed a plan, followed it and had 2 beautiful daughters from 2 cycles, each involving single embryo transfers.
Since then we've helped countless couples increase their chances and have their children.
Now, we'd like to help you.
Personally, we wouldn’t undergo IVF again without taking steps to give ourselves the best chance.
The stakes are too high and the odds are too low.
We couldn't imagine getting to the end of the road and feeling we hadn't tried everything.
At the IVF Success Plan, we’ve done all the hard work and figured out which supplements work (and which don’t) so you don't have to.
Normally our guides sell for $25-49, but for a limited time we'll let you have instant access for just $14.99.
Literally, you can have a couple of those fancy coffees at Starbucks or you can:
We are so confident the Ultimate Guide will work for you we give a 180 day no-questions-asked money-back guarantee.
Your doctor will tell you there's no guarantee with IVF. But, we're so confident the Ultimate Guide will help you we DO have a guarantee.
Anytime in the next 180 days, if for any reason you feel the Plan isn't for you, just let us know and we'll refund every penny.
We know how tough the IVF journey can be.
We've been there and experienced the emotional highs and lows, the disappointing success rates and the financial burden.
That's why we'd like to help you on your journey.
When we hear success stories of people who have beaten the IVF odds nothing gives us greater pleasure. There's so much you can do to boost your chances and we'd love to help you.
Whichever path you choose, we wish you well.
What is a "video guide"?
When we started researching we wanted scientific proof. To find it we trawled thousands of studies in medical journals from around the world.
These studies are buried in complex scientific research papers using impenetrable jargon (sometimes in foreign languages) so took them and translated them into plain English that everyone can understand.
Based on feedback from our members we've found that a video-based guide along with notes is the best way to get the information across.
With fertility our biological clocks are ticking so a lengthy book that takes weeks to read can do more harm than good.
The Ultimate Guide to IVF Supplements is a 40 minute video with accompanying notes and a follow-up email "implementation" series which will take you through the supplements proven to boost IVF success rates.
Is there a guarantee?
Yes...all our products have a 180 day, no-questions-asked guarantee.
In other words, if you aren't happy for any reason, just let us know and we'll give you your money back. We obviously don't think it'll come to that, but if you're even the least bit worried if this will work for you, then please put your mind at ease.
Why only $14.99?
If you're thinking "$14.99 is cheap...what's the catch?" then here are a couple of reasons that should put your mind at ease:
1. $14.99 puts this information within the reach of everyone considering IVF
2. It weeds out the freebie-seekers. We want to help people who will actually take action, the "do-ers", and in our experience charging anything...even if it's just a buck... gets rid of 99% of the "wishers".
We also believe that once you experience this guide, you'll want more and maybe... just maybe... you'll come back and possibly even upgrade to the IVF Success Plan where you get access to our complete guide to preparing for IVF.
But that's it...
No fine print... no "hidden trials"... no shenanigans. Just the information you need and the results you want.
How long will it take to get access?
