$2 = Baby. The Infertility Cure that Worked for Me!

Share Button

Once we decided to try to get pregnant, I did everything I thought I should have to prepare.  I started tracking my cycle, taking my temperature and making suggestions to my husband to wear boxers instead of briefs.  The concept of trying was always strange to me before it was actually our turn to “try”.  I always assumed it was pretty simple – just as you learned in sex ed class and it should just happen right?  After several months of really trying – nothing.  I started buying pregnancy test kits in bulk as they are expensive!

After a couple of months with no success a friend of mine told me that I needed to tell my doctor we’ve been trying for year to get on the list to see a fertility specialist (guess they won’t even consider this unless you’ve been trying for at least a year).  After about 6 months of trying, I did just that – told my doctor we had been trying for a year and that I wanted to see a specialist and she gave me a referral to a gynecologist who I guess also deal with fertility issues.  Boy was my friend right as it took another 5 months to get an appointment.  Dr. L was great – he didn’t jump right to the fertility drugs but instead wanted to rule out all the factors – the old fashion way.  I was instructed to schedule another appointment and come to see him within a couple of hours after one of our baby making attempts.  He then took a sample and then under a microscope found that the sperm were inactive.  We then did the same test a second time just to make sure – again same result.  Next we needed to rule my husband out as the problem and boy did he hate having to do the sperm count test, but of course it needed to be done.  Results came back and to my husband’s relief, it had nothing to do with him.  Turns out I was too acidic and all the sperm was being killed off almost as it enters.

Dr. L gave me two options to try:  a $2 baking soda and water solution that I would douche with before every baby making attempt or the several hundred dollar option which involved a fertility clinic and medication.  I chose to try the first option and for two bucks completely worth a shot.  Low and behold the next month I was PREGNANT!

I remember coming home after the appointment where I was told about the baking soda solution and googling it to do some research.  I could not find any information on this method or anyone who had tried it let alone tried it and was successful.  I share this story as who knows, there may be others out there with the same issue who are not lucky enough to get an old school doctor who doesn’t automatically jump to fertility drugs.  My end result was a happy one and I’m very luck to have my Ella as a result of this.

To all others out there with similar stories, please share them as you never know who it might help.  We all know how frustrating it is to try and want to have a child so much and have no control over the potential success when you come across these types of issues.  This $2 magic baking soda fertility cure worked for me so hopefully it might reach someone else out there and ends up working for them too!

    1. 2 tablespoons of baking soda mixed with 1 litre of water. Purchase a douche bottle and thoroughly wash it out first before filling with the baking soda solution. Douche with the solution right before each and every baby making attempt. Good luck!

  1. It worked for me twice. I miss carried the first baby at 5 months, but the second time I tried, I ended up with twins. This does work!

  2. I’m a little late to this but my husband and I have been trying over two years. He’s been tested and I’ve gone to specialist with so far NO answers of what it could be. We’ve done everything to a T with still not even a hint of pregnancy. I have endometriosis and on my infertility app someone told me to try this and I thought “idk baking soda up there scares me but hey why not I’ll try it. At this point is it gonna even hurt me more than trying over two years?!” I just went through my ovulation time so this month I’m definitely going to give it a go. I know this isn’t a story of me trying t yet but I wanted to thank you for posting this bc I literally never heard of this!

    1. Thanks for sharing your story. I can completely relate to the “what do you have to lose” mindset. Luckily for us it worked so good luck to you guys too! Fingers, toes and everything else crossed for you and your husband.

  3. I have been trying to conceive for almost a year and it was so stressful and heartbreaking every month I got my period. My husband did all the tests and they were all good. So a friend of mine recommended a doctor who she said helped a few of her friends get pregnant. He said he wants to see me within an hour of intercourse. He then found under a microscope that all the sperm was dead! He said the problem is I was too acidic and killing all the sperm. I was relieved but again sad cause I knew I had a problem. He told me to douche with baking soda and water before intercourse. I did it only once and got pregnant! But unfortunately I had an ectopic pregnancy at 5 weeks I needed to have surgery and I had my left tube removed. I was in such a pain and devastated. 3 months after surgery I did an HSG test to see if my right tube was ok. Thank goodness it was not blocked. So that gave me some peace of mind. So I thought “great, baking soda helped me once, it will work again”. But it’s been 4 months of ttc and I am so desperate and feel like I am about to give up. This is my story. Thank you for reading.

    1. Thank you so much for sharing your story. I can’t imagine the roller coaster you went through from disappointment to happiness back to disappointment again. Sending positive thoughts your way and hoping that we will hear good new in the not too distant future. Good luck and stay strong!

  4. I would like to know, what is the recipe? Is it 2 tablespoons b.s. 2 one cup water? Or is it more or less? Please let me know as the only other option is lemon juice & water, & that just sounds scary.

    1. 2 tablespoons of baking soda mixed with 1 litre of water. Purchase a douche bottle and thoroughly wash it out first before filling with the baking soda solution. Douche with the solution right before each and every baby making attempt. Good luck!

  5. Wow! I have never heard of this either, but what a life changer this could be to someone. Of course there are going to be those that need more extensive help, but if this can help at least one woman who is going through the agony of trying, than this post is worth it! Thanks for sharing!! #shinebloghop

    1. I know – it’s crazy right? I agree there are lots who have deeper issues and need extensive help but for the cost of a box of baking soda, it never hurts to rule this out! My specialist joked about he was going to bottle it and become rich 🙂
