After failing to get pregnant through traditional IVF treatments for more than five years, a 33-year old British woman was finally able to conceive after undergoing an innovative therapy that included being injected with egg yolk and soya oil through a drip.
Sara Conyers revealed that she and her husband, Matthew spent more than £25,000 on IVF treatment over a period of five years without any success. After the third attempt to get pregnant through IVF failed, Sara was told that he immune system was not accepting the fertilized embryo and was attacking it.
The doctors then put her on intralipid infusion therapy, which involves being injected with egg yolk and soya oil through a drip. Though this therapy is used in treating premature babies, it has been known to stop the immune system from attacking the embryos.
The fourth attempt to get pregnant also failed but Sara was finally able to get pregnant on the fifth time and last week, she returned home with William and Ben, who were born two weeks premature.
