Natural fertility treatments are non-invasive procedures that can help support natural fertility in both men and women.  These holistic methods are effective in solving underlying physical problems that other factors such as metabolic, environmental, emotional, and dietary, which are not typically addressed by traditional medical treatments.  

What is Infertility?

Infertility is defined as the inability to conceive after one year of unprotected intercourse (6 months for a woman over 35) or the inability to carry a pregnancy to live birth.  The diagnosis is usually given to couples who have had unsuccessful attempts in conceiving for at least one year.  Conception and pregnancy are complicated processes that depend on many factors:

  • Production of healthy sperm by the man
  • Production of healthy sperm by the woman
  • Healthy, unblocked fallopian tubes that allow the sperm to reach the egg
  • The sperm's ability to fertilize the egg when they meet
  • The ability of the fertilized egg to become implanted in the woman's uterus
  • Sufficient embryo quantity and quality

When just one of these factors is impaired, issues arise with fertility.  For the pregnancy to continue to full term, the embryo must be healthy, and the woman's hormonal environment must be adequate for its development.
