You've been trying to get pregnant for over a year.
It's not happening. you're frustrated, confused, scared that something could be wrong that nobody's catching.
You don't know what to do.
I get it.
You've changed your diet, you've taken all the supplements, you're on a prenatal, you've gone to the doctor, so what else could you possibly do that you haven't done?
Now your doctor recommends the next step...
Fertility drugs to stimulate ovulation and egg follicles.....
You're tense, you're freaking out because deep down in your heart and your gut the answer is a big "Hell NO"!
That's not the path you envision. You don't want to take that synthetic junk and put toxins in your body, nobody does!
Is this the only option left?
To conventional doctors and fertility specialists, it is! And that sucks.
So now you're thinking about it because you don't know what else you could possibly do...
You may have filled that prescription. You may have these drugs sitting in your refrigerator. And every time you open it to get something to eat, that box is sitting looking right back at you.
So what do you do?
I'll tell you right now....
The 3 Reasons Why Fertility Hormones Are NOT your only option to get pregnant
KNOW YOUR FLOW....
First and foremost, you can't skip the basics regardless of what you are doing, what you're coming in with, what you've been diagnosed with.
We all have to start at the basics when it comes to hormonal health & fertility.
And that's your period.
Are you regular? Are you having normal non disruptive periods? Have you always have had crappy periods? Do you have endometriosis, fibroids? Are your periods heavy and think that's normal?
Where are you on this spectrum?
No amount of Clomid, FSH, LH gonadotropin hormones or other pills can help you regulate your period. And this is where you need to start because your cycles let you know when you're ovulating. And this is crucial because when you ovulate, there's an egg and there's the possibility of a baby.
There's so many clues and fertility treasures in your period.
The consistency & color alone can tell you so much about your hormone levels, especially estrogen and progesterone.
I know most conventional doctors aren't trained in sitting you down and carefully asking details about your cycle and periods, but that's something I do first and foremost when you're reaching out for help with your fertility.
You've gotta get to know your period
And that, you can start do naturally every single month.
STIMULATING OVULATION & BOOSTING EGG QUALITY
Now, the second reason you might be considering fertility drugs is because you've probably been told that it's the only way to stimulate ovulation and egg follicles.
If you have a hormone imbalance like PCOS & endometriosis, you might already be familiar with anovulatory cycles (no ovulation).
And this is serious because 30% of infertility is caused by imbalances that lead to non ovulatory cycles.
No ovulation = no babies.....
Women who don't know that there are alternatives to dealing with hormone imbalances such as PCOS & Endometriosis so that they can overcome the symptoms and start supporting their bodies, prematurely start fertility drug treatment to stimulate ovulation.
From a holistic perspective there are many reasons a woman doesn't ovulate.
The obvious are hormone and immune imbalances such as PCOS & Endometriosis, which can be managed with herbs, diet & lifestyle changes.
Another very common reason for non ovulatory cycles is your weight.
Are you overweight or underweight?
These two extremes can really stop ovulation naturally! Just losing 10 pounds can really help reignite the communication signals between your brain and endocrine system so that you start ovulating again.
Are you over exercising?
Over exercising can stop ovulation. Are you overdoing it and not nourishing your body back?
And, finally, how's your stress level?
I know, BUT stress does so much and it's not really addressed in conventional medicine. If you take hormone stimulating medications and you don't address your stress levels, good luck.
So what's your stress level?
Most stress imbalances lead to adrenal imbalances. And these won't show up on standard lab tests. But high stress levels release cortisol, which keeps progesterone levels lower than optimal if you want to have a baby!
So take a look at your physical stress, your mental stress, your emotional stress, what stressors are in your environment that you really haven't addressed?
NOT SO SAFE & EFFECTIVE
Finally, think really hard about fertility drugs. They are not safe and effective.
And I know that maybe you've been told or you've read that they are relativity safe.
But honestly, I don't think that any drug that's made in the lab is safe when it comes with a huge packet insert that lists a a bunch of side effects.
If I saw a food with a length of side effect warning, I wouldn't eat it, neither would you!
And I know you know this.
And experts do agree that these medications are overprescribed! For example, IVF pioneer Dr. Davis states, Clomid and hyper stimulating drugs are over prescribed. And they're over prescribed because doctors don't have anything else to give patients desperate to have children."
The bottom line is that doctors don't know about nutrition and lifestyle. They don't know about herbs, they don't know about stress management, they know about medication, they're chemists, and that's what they're good at.
Unfortunately, these drugs have a low success rate (10-13%) per every 12 week cycle!
You can end up with headaches, night sweats, even hot flashes. You might end up moody, grumpy and overweight. And the last thing you're going to want to do is have sex to make a baby.
Which is ironically the point!
So What's A Girl To Do?
Fortunately, experts across all fields agree that nutrition and lifestyle changes can turn things around before even considering fertility medication.
You just need a really good strategy, focus and believe that you can do it.
Your body has been programmed for this.
Right now, its fighting against the years of training your body has been programmed NOT to get pregnant! Because, you know, you've lived a life you wanted to live up until this point.
And so now its all about supporting your body to build good eggs, ovulate, decrease stress & inflammation.
And this can happen in as little as 90 days!
90 days is a direct reflection of your environment & lifestyle choices.
So you can create massive change starting now, without subjecting yourself to ineffective and toxic medications.
And that's what your really want RIGHT?
