Whilst various reasons may be identified for reproductive failure, idiopathic or unexplained sub-fertility accounts for 25% of failures to conceive. This is not surprising, when we consider that reproductive health may be affected by a number of factors, including stress, poor nutrition, toxicity, hormonal imbalances and autoimmunity. These issues are extremely common in our busy Western world, and since they all affect reproductive health in both men and women, managing them effectively can help us help our fertility patients.
- Optimal nutrition
- Removal of toxic elements (smoking, alcohol, cleaning agents etc)
- Getting enough rest and sleep
- Reducing /managing stress
- Regular exercise

PRECONCEPTIONCARE FOR COUPLE
Conception involves both the male and female partners equally, that is why it is so important that both you and your partner are at optimum health at the time of conception and are producing healthy sperm and eggs to give your child the best possible start at life.
Research now shows the importance of good nutrition during the preconception period. However studies have shown that the majority of Australians don’treceive their Recommended Daily Intake (RDI) for many important nutrients.
Many factors contribute to higher nutrient requirement, such as history of OCP use, medications, poor immunity, exercise, stress, chemical exposure, poor diet, and poor digestion, intake of alcohol, sugar, coffee, soft drinks, and refined food.
We see an increasing number of patients being diagnosed with unexplained infertility and subfertility. This can be confusing for couples who have had the standard medical tests performed.
WE OFFER FUNCTIONAL PATHOLOGY TESTING IN NATURAL FERTILITY MANAGEMENT/PRECONCEPTION CARE
The fertility Profile was specifically developed for the needs of those preparing to conceive or having difficulty conceiving. This is a combination of the following four comprehensive tests:
- Baseline plus Adrenal Hormone Profile
- Functional Liver Detoxification
- Comprehensive Urine Elements Profile
- Thyroid Hormone Profile
All women are born with a finite number of eggs. As you grow older, you will gradually lose more eggs during each ‘period’ until menopause. The number one factor affecting a couple’s chances of conceiving is the woman’s age. As she grows older, particularly after 35 years, the number and the quality of the eggs decreases. This makes creating and maintaining a pregnancy more difficult.
A growing body of research has demonstrated that measuring the concentration of Anti-Mullerian Hormone or AMH in a woman’s blood has been shown to be a good predictor of a woman’s egg reserve (the number of eggs remaining in the ovaries). A low AMH level may indicate low egg reserve and high levels of AMH can be indicative of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome.
If you fall into any of the below categories then an AMH test may be helpful:
- You have been trying to conceive for over six months, and are looking for reassurance that your ovarian reserve is appropriate to your age.
- You are considering fertility treatments.
- You have had chemotherapy or ovarian/endometrial surgery and want to find out what effect it has had on your future fertility.
- If you are under the age of 38 years and are considering delaying pregnancy for social/personal reasons.
Make sure you plan a visit to one of our practitioners as part of you baby planning process and remember; health for each member of the new family is also available and highly recommended to ensure a happy healthy future for all.
