(Minghui.org) Children are the continuation of life and hope of the family. But in recent years, infertility rates have been on the rise due to many factors.

Some infertile couples have become happy parents after practicing Falun Dafa or sincerely reciting the auspicious phrases “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” Let’s look at their stories.

Infertile for 18 Years, Pregnant at 40 After Practicing Falun Dafa

Ms. Arjene Chen, a high school teacher in the U.S.

After Ms. Arjene Chen got married, she followed her husband to the U.S. When her husband was doing his Ph.D. program, he began longing for a child. They tried for 18 years in vain.

They first sought folk remedies, but to no avail. They also visited an infertility clinic, and the doctor said that one of Ms. Wang’s fallopian tubes was obstructed and that her husband’s sperm count was low. The doctor suggested artificial insemination, but they were disappointed and frustrated after several unsuccessful attempts.

Then after a while, they plucked up their courage and decided to try IVF (In vitro fertilization), which was very expensive, nearly $10,000 even twenty years ago. The physician told them very clearly at the time that the success rate was very low. But they were unwilling to give up and wanted to try.

During an interview with New Tang Dynasty, Ms. Chen recalled, “The first stage was collecting eggs. Normally, a woman only ovulates one egg per month, but my doctor hoped to collect ten eggs in one month. To that end, my husband had to give me injections daily per the doctor’s instructions. It was stressful for both of us. We lived in a college town and it was three hours one way to see the fertility doctor. We went back and forth many times. We were anxious, hoping for the best after spending so much money, time, and energy.

“In a month, the doctor had collected ten of my eggs. Six of them were successfully fertilized. The second stage was to transfer the fertilized eggs to my womb. The first time the doctor transplanted three fertilized eggs, which required anesthesia. But three weeks later, my period returned.

“A few months later, we tried one last time. It was not successful. We were both exhausted, frustrated, and lost hope.”

Many years later, Ms. Wang came across Falun Dafa and began practicing it diligently. Six months later, she was so surprised to discover that she was pregnant! “How amazing! Falun Dafa changed me. I was 40 years old then and it is not easy for a woman that age to conceive naturally. Everything went well, and there was nothing wrong even at my advanced age.

“My doctor told me that my indexes were perfectly normal--like a young woman in her 20s--and that the fetus was perfectly healthy. My delivery was also very smooth. Dafa brought me calmness of mind and good health. My gratitude to Dafa is beyond words.”

Her son is now a healthy and multi-talented young man, bringing endless joy to her family.

“I Found the Purpose of Life”

Below is a story from a Falun Dafa practitioner in Hebei Province, China.

“In 1991, my first child passed away at five and a half months due to a congenital abnormality of his heart. My health declined as well. I developed insomnia, inflammation of the uterus, obstructed fallopian tubes, and other problems. I was busy, in and out of hospitals and clinics, but nothing helped and I could no longer conceive.

“I was in my 30s and still had no children. I became irritable and suspicious and had a hot temper. I often fought with my husband for no reason. I had no purpose in life and felt depressed.

“I came across Falun Dafa in March 1998 and my heart was touched by the principles of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance. I finally found the direction of my life. This was what I wanted. I began to abide by the principles of Dafa, and strive to be a better person.

“A miracle happened to me shortly after that. All my illnesses were gone. I got pregnant and became a mother at age 32! I have been healthy ever since.”
