What is the #1 cause of unexplained fertility?

If you’re considering trying to conceive in the next year, or anytime soon, there are steps you can take now to get your body in the right condition to conceive a child. One of them is focusing on managing your stress levels. It’s the #1 cause of unexplained infertility so it’s important to look at how you can manage your stress levels before you try to conceive.  

Your emotional well-being goes a long way to contributing to your ability to get pregnant. And, if you’ve been trying to conceive for months with no success, that uncertainty of not knowing the cause can add additional stress. 

Other common causes for unexplained infertility include hormone imbalances, immunity issues, pelvic misalignment, physical or emotional trauma, scan tissue, or anxiety and depression.

How does Osteopathy help me get pregnant?

Osteopathy is a healthcare practice that treats all body pains and dysfunction related to your joints, muscles, nerves, connective tissues, and internal organs. In this modality, Osteopathic Manual Techniques are used to treat the root cause, not just the symptoms. 

When trying to conceive, often treating the root cause is more effective than putting a “band-aid” on the symptoms. An Osteopath will look at all your symptoms, then look deeper to discover what they are connected to.

If your body and reproductive subsystem are physically out of alignment, this can impact your fertility. Osteopathic medicine can help you:

  • Correctly align your pelvis
  • Lower your back and hips
  • Increasing nerve conduction to the uterus, fallopian tubes, and ovaries. 
  • Align your uterus and ovarian ligaments. 

Is Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) safe when trying to conceive?

Yes, and we often recommend it in our fertility treatment plans because it’s one of the most researched alternative medicine modalities for fertility issues. TCM is a 3500-year-old eastern medicine system that focuses on restoring your body’s energy (Qi) and building the body’s constitution from the inside out.

TCM uses many treatments that are safe and recommended getting your body in the right condition to make a baby. These include acupuncture, acupressure massage, cupping, moxibustion and Chinese herbs. 

A TCM practitioner can help to:

  • Reduce emotional and physical stress
  • Balance hormones
  • Treat Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) & endometriosis
  • Increase endometrial lining for higher chances of implantation
  • Increase ovarian and uterine health
  • Optimize sperm quality

How can a naturopathic doctor help boost my fertility?

More and more people are turning to naturopathic doctors to support them in their pregnancies and in trying to get pregnant. Like TCM, it aims to treat the root cause, not the symptoms, through homeopathy, herbs, supplements, diet, nutrition & lifestyle coaching.

Regular visits to a naturopathic doctor can also help ensure your body and mind is healthy to make conception easier. They can also help discover if there is a medical reason behind your fertility struggles.  

Booking an appointment before you start trying to conceive can help you:

  • Reduce emotional stress
  • Balance your hormones
  • Increase sperm count and motility
  • Encourage appropriate nutrition
  • Maintain or achieve a healthy weight

Are massages safe when trying to get pregnant?

Oh yes! Massages are great for treating muscle aches and pains and in helping you to relax. If you are worried about your ability to conceive, regular massages are a great way to turn off the outside world and just relax for your treatment. 

Massages are also great to increase circulation in your body, and to decrease your cortisol levels. Regulating your cortisol helps regulate your blood pressure, sleep cycles, and can help boost your fertility.

Massages can also help:

  • Relieve stress and anxiety around becoming pregnant
  • Increase immune function
  • Relieve tired & sore muscles
