Fertility is the ability of a heterosexual couple to conceive through normal sexual activity. Approximately 80% of heterosexual couples having unprotected sex 2-3 times a week, without contraception, will get pregnant within 1 year.

Infertility is defined as the inability to conceive after a year of regular intercourse or carry a baby to term.

What causes infertility?

Even if you are pursuing fertility medications or ART (assisted reproductive technology), naturopathic medicine can still be of assistance.  As we can help with the quality of the follicles and the lining, it is worth seeing us before and during your treatments.  Don’t worry, we respect the need to stop many supplements before procedures.
