Reflexology case study - sub fertility


Background

The client was 26 years old, had 2 children & wanted another baby.  She was slightly underweight had little energy, did not drink alcohol & was trying to stop smoking.

The client presented with a menstrual cycle of 19 days, having not ovulated for 4 months.  She was anaemic due to menorrhagia & dysmenorrhoea, a severe 8 day bleed with constant severe cramping pain.  Her menstrual cycle until 4 months previously was 24 days with a 6 day normal bleed.


Medical investigations had found nothing physically wrong and she had been offered a hysterectomy if things did not improve.  She was taking Agnes Castes on days 1 – 14 as she’d been told this may help.


A course of reflexology was agreed; one reflexology session per week over two menstrual cycles followed by 2 reflexology sessions per month.  This was intended to lengthen the client’s menstrual cycle to encourage ovulation with a view to becoming pregnant.


The reflexology treatment

By her 3rd week of reflexology treatment, the client had started her period; however, she had no severe stomach cramps.


By reflexology session 4 the client had decided to stop taking Agnes Castes to see what effect it will have.


During her next period which started on day 26, it lasted for 6 days, it was less heavy & she only had stomach cramps on day one.  Although still feeling tired, the client was now no longer anaemic.


On reflexology session 10 the client had her next period, this started on day 27, lasted for 6 days with no pain; normal flow for the first 3 days & then very light.


In her next reflexology session, 12 weeks in to her treatment she detected ovulation on day 13. She had done 2 positive pregnancy tests, had fatigue and felt a ‘cramping’ in her belly – a sensation experienced with her last pregnancy.   She had morning sickness, aching breasts, lack of appetite & was eating fish, something she usually hates.


Outcome

After reflexology session 12 the client felt she had successfully reached her goal of pregnancy. She carried full term & gave birth to a healthy baby girl.
