There are many things that can cause infertility, such as having an irregular menstrual cycle, absence of ovulation, stress, blood sugar instability, endometriosis, digestive issues, and several other things. Most people think when they cannot get pregnant that the issue itself is infertility – however, it’s more likely that infertility is a symptom of an underlying health issue.
If you are having a difficult time becoming pregnant, it’s important to receive help from a medical professional who can identify and treat the root cause of your infertility to help you become pregnant.
What Is Infertility?
There are many reasons why a fertilized egg cannot reach the uterus through the fallopian tubes, which is often the result of an underlying condition.
Possible Causes of Infertility
- Blood sugar instability
- Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)
- Chronic inflammation
- Digestive issues / Gut infections
- Dryness of the vaginal area
- Chronic illness
- Chronic fatigue
- Adrenal Fatigue / Cortisol imbalance
- Irregular menstrual cycle
- Absence of ovulation
- Insulin resistance
- Undiagnosed thyroid dysfunction
- Pelvic infection
- Pelvic inflammatory disease
- Various lifestyle factors
While male infertility can also be affected by some of the above items, it can also be caused by low sperm production or structural problems in the male reproductive system.
Is Age a Factor in Infertility?
What Role Does Weight Play in Infertility?
Being underweight can also make it difficult to become pregnant, especially if the menstrual cycle becomes disrupted and irregular.
Similar to any other underlying health condition that could be present in a person experiencing infertility, the weight needs to be addressed before the ability to conceive becomes possible. This can be done with the help of a medical professional to guide you in the process.
What Treatment is Available for Fertility Problems?
Functional and holistic medicine can address infertility issues and treat infertility. It will typically involve a combination of nutritional therapy (oral or IV), neural therapy, herbs, minerals, peptides, coaching and education, and ongoing support to ensure you’re correctly following the treatment plan. The exact approach to treatment will vary for each person based on their specific needs and situation.
While it might be tempting to receive assisted reproductive technology treatments such as IVF, this method is not only extremely expensive but can be ineffective, since it doesn’t address the true underlying issue causing infertility in the first place.
With functional and holistic medicine, all the treatment methods are completely natural. It’s an inclusive approach that takes into account how the physical, mental, and emotional aspects of a person play a role in their health and well-being.
