UNPOPULAR OPINION: Fertility Treatments Should NOT Be the First Step in Your Fertility Journey

I had a call with a woman yesterday. She is 30 years old, had been trying to conceive for awhile now with no luck, so she went through a barrage of testing, IUIs & IVFs

She was filled with despair, telling me how much she hates going to the doctor, hates taking pills, & hates needles

Yet, she thought her ONLY option to get pregnant was to seek a fertility specialist & go through this process

“That’s what all my friends did, that’s what you see all over IG, so I figured that is what women have to do when they aren’t getting pregnant on their own.”

Let’s just say, I was excited to share all the other options open to her & her husband!

She was totally blown away by the testimonials of our holistic fertility program that I shared with her. 

She was ecstatic about the opportunity of discontinuing her weekly doctor visits, the insane schedule of pills, not to mention, the payments out of pocket for something that wasn’t improving her health overall.

My mission as a holistic fertility coach is not only to help you get pregnant naturally without having to turn to expensive medical treatments, but also to change the way we, as a society, approaches fertility challenges. 

It’s easy for me to see the benefits of improving nutritional, supplemental, lifestyle, mental & emotional realms of the body FIRST before ever walking into a fertility clinic…But I want YOU to see that benefit, too.

According to a paper published in the November 1, 2007 issue of Obstetrics & Gynecology, women who followed a combination of 5 or more lifestyle factors (including changing aspects of nutrition, supplements, stress management & exercise), experienced more than 80% LESS relative risk of infertility due to ovulatory disorders compared to women who engaged in none of the factors.

So for all you with ‘unexplained infertility’, this study gives you proof. It gives you HOPE. That there is another option besides IUIs & IVF

Now there’s NOTHING wrong with these treatments!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

But should they be the very first step without knowing the root causes to your fertility challenges?

In my opinion, NO
