As you know we take a functional approach to fertility so you can either can pregnant naturally or if you do need to go to the clinic you can increase your chances of success.
However, you have may have come to that place in your journey that IVF seems like your next logical step.
Because you have already done these three (3) steps with your partner:
– Identified the stressors using functional testing such as food sensitivities, gut infections, environmental toxins, mental emotional triggers, and structural (i.e. pinched nerve) and had your blood chemistry review using functional reference ranges (to catch any missed healing opportunities).
– Addressed the imbalances by making the targeted changes to your diet and lifestyle (this will take a minimum of six (6) months). Including retesting to ensure all infections are eradicated.
– Optimized your body, mind, and spirit to get in the best possible health for pregnancy and the postpartum period.
If you haven’t done this yet, I encourage you to check out Functional Medicine 101 to learn how the functional approach to fertility can help you get pregnant naturally.
