What is Functional Medicine For Fertility?

Functional medicine is a holistic approach to addressing fertility issues. Rather than simply treating a symptom, functional medicine focuses on identifying and addressing the root cause of the fertility problems. This often is an underlying health condition that must first be treated before the body is ready to conceive. 

At Road to Fertility, we utilize a functional perspective by taking into account you as a whole person (rather than just a symptom) to help you achieve optimal reproductive health.

What To Expect with Our Concierge Medicine

During Your Initial Consultation

During your initial consultation, Dr. Yuabova will listen to your concerns, conduct a medical history, and perform a whole-body energy scan with your consent.

Dr. Yuabova’s goal is to find and address the root cause of the problem.  She uses innovative functional medicine testing and diagnostic methods, and can customize a fertility treatment plan based on your body’s specific needs.

As mentioned, any time a person has difficulty becoming pregnant, it is a symptom of an underlying issue. This is why it’s crucial to find and address the underlying issue, which can then potentially enable you to become pregnant.

Treatment is different for every person and specific to your particular findings.

During Your Follow-Up Appointments

Your treatment plan will be unique to you and will include a variety of approaches, including nutritional therapy (oral or IV), neural therapy, herbs, minerals, peptides, coaching and education, and more. Ongoing support is also provided to ensure you’re implementing the treatment plan correctly. Dr. Yuabova and her team will check in with you every 2 to 4 weeks.

Most functional reproductive medicine treatment programs last anywhere from 4 to 6 months but can be longer depending on your specific situation and needs.

Do Appointments Have to Be In Person?

Our patients have the option of choosing between telehealth appointments or in-person appointments at our Boca Raton, FL location. This includes both the initial consultation and any follow-up appointments. When blood work is needed, we’ll send you to a nearby functional lab that can conduct the bloodwork.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does functional medicine approach fertility differently from traditional medicine?
Functional medicine treatment plans look at the individuals as a whole, rather than a symptom, addressing a combination of factors (ranging from hormonal imbalances to overactive stress hormones to nutrition, underlying health conditions such as a thyroid disease, overall ovarian health and more). The goal is to address infertility by identifying and treating the root cause of the fertility issue.

Traditional medicine often only focuses on one specific symptom, rather than taking into any potential underlying causes to that symptom (such as health conditions, hormonal imbalances, lifestyle factors, etc).

What kinds of tests are typically done in functional medicine for fertility?
Functional medicine for female and male fertility often uses specialized testing, including but not limited to hormone panels via bloodwork, nutritional assessments, gut health assessments, and more. The goal is to gain a better understanding on the individual’s overall health to identify and address what could be causing the fertility issues.
Is functional medicine a replacement for conventional fertility treatments?
Functional medicine is used to identify and address any underlying health conditions that are resulting in fertility issues. Once the condition is identified, treatment can begin. After treating the health issue and restoring optimal health within the body, it becomes more possible for pregnancy to begin – often naturally. That begin said, some people find success with In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) after a functional medicine approach.
How long does it typically take to see results with functional medicine for fertility?
The exact timeframe will vary from person to person, but most clients utilize our treatments for 4 to 6 months or longer.
What types of fertility treatments do you offer?
Our approach to female infertility and male infertility is to address the underlying health issue(s) that are occurring and therefore, making it difficult for pregnancy to occur. We take a functional, whole-body health approach to your treatment.
Are fertility treatments covered by my insurance?
This will depend on your specific insurance provider. The cost of your functional reproductive medicine treatment plan will depend on your underlying health issues. Please contact us to receive an estimate of services.
