Fertility Care

Are You Having Difficulty Conceiving?

To some couples dismay, it is not always as easy to create a new life as they initially think it will be.  Did you know that it takes many couples 6 months to 1 year to get pregnant the first time?

What can affect your fertility level?  Many factors contribute including genetic disorders, various hormone related conditions (e.g. PCOS) and/or lifestyle factors such as smoking, stress and poor nutrition.  However in some cases, it is just a matter of becoming educated about the female cycle, timing, and knowing when ovulation occurs. Keep in mind that depending on the app you use, it may not always be completely accurate!

At KIH we work with couples to help identify the unique factors impacting their ability to conceive and provide gentle, natural treatments to remove any obstacles. Read on below for more information about our approach to fertility care.  You can also book an appointment or free consult to ask our Naturopathic Doctors any preliminary questions you may have.

The First Step – A Complete Assessment

We sometimes forget that it takes two to create a new life. Therefore assessing both the male and the females health is equally important.  This investigation includes a health history, review of current lifestyle factors, supplements or medications taken and often laboratory tests including nutrient levels, cholesterol and if indicated, hormone testing. Hormone can be assessed through the blood or urine and during your first appointment we advise our patients on what their best option is.

A Customized Treatment Plan

Once the core issue have been identified, your naturopathic doctor will formulate a treatment plan for you that includes one or a combination of the following naturopathic treatments:

Follow up appointments will be scheduled re-assess progress and labs as needed.  Regular modifications to your plan along with continual support and encouragement will be provided to help you to acheive your ultimate goal of conception.
