Our naturopathic doctors are trained to guide you with effective natural medicine to give your baby the best possible start to life.
Trying to have children when it doesn’t come quickly and easily can be incredibly frustrating and emotionally challenging. Infertility is typically defined as couples who have been trying to conceive for at least 12 months in women under age 35 and for 6 months in women over age 35. There are many reasons why conception has not occurred in these cases.
According to Health Canada the reasons include the following:
- 3 times out of 10, the cause is in men.
- 4 times out of 10, the cause is in women.
- 2 times out of 10, the cause is a mix of factors from both male and female.
- 1 time out of 10, at first, no specific cause can be found. You may have been told you have unexplained infertility.
Our naturopathic doctors are trained to support you in all cases. We can help you optimize your health and hormones, regulate your cycle, counsel you through the process of assessing your timing of attempts and order necessary laboratory testing to help determine the underlying causes of your fertility challenges.
