You have been given the diagnosis of unexplained infertility. As a Fertility Homeopath, unexplained fertility is never unexplained and in a brief consultation with a woman about her medical history I can normally work out why you are unable to get pregnant.
Unexplained infertility is the diagnosis given when doctors have no further tools they can use to help you fall pregnant except IVF, but there is actually so much that Homeopathy can do and should be the next step in your fertility journey.
Here are 6 questions I ask my fertility clients to discover why they are unable to fall pregnant.
Previous use of the Contraceptive Pill
This includes all forms of birth control, such as the Mirena Coil, DEPO shot, the implant, or any form of synthetic contraception. This is always the first question I ask, as there are not many women who have escaped taking the pill. The fake hormones in the pill suppress the hormones needed for ovulation and make the womb a hostile environment for a fertilised egg to implant.
For some women just stopping the pill is not enough for this delicate balance of hormones to rebalance so that she can fall pregnant. This is why I prescribe a Homeopathic detox of the contraceptive pill in all my fertility patients. Many women fall pregnant halfway through this detox or shortly after.
Previous use of Steroids
The next big question I ask my patients is whether they have ever taken steroids. This could be from asthma pumps as a child, from an acne cream as a teenager, from an allergic reaction, or an injection for a painful joint. Steroids are also given during IVF treatment. Even if the last time you took steroids was as a child, or only for a brief time, steroids still can affect your fertility.
Steroids are made from testosterone, yes that’s right, another hormone critical for a successful pregnancy. I have seen dramatic results in detoxing steroids with patients with endometriosis and Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS).
Poor Gut Health
Before I was a fertility expert I was focusing on treating patients with poor gut health, IBS, allergies, and hormone imbalances. I was so surprised how linked it all was, I would rarely see a patient struggling with PMS who didn’t also have gut health issues too and vice versa. Gut Health can be improved extremely quickly with Homeopathy, by detoxing antibiotics and correcting the imbalances of the gut.
Stress and Anxiety
When we are stressed, our primitive survival bodies think we are about to be attacked by a bear, the fight or flight hormones, cortisol, and adrenaline are charging through the body ready for action. When the body feels that it needs to keep us on guard and keep us alive, it will not prioritise a pregnancy.
To relieve stress and anxiety, we go right back to when the stress or anxiety began, we explore what makes you anxious and remedies are given to help.
The sleep hormones are closely linked to the fertility hormones in the body. Very much like when we are experiencing stress and anxiety, poor sleep causes an imbalance in the stress hormones, making it difficult for the body to focus its attention on creating a baby.
When we experience grief, the stress hormones cortisol and adrenaline are released to help us cope. But sometimes we can become stuck in that grief, unable to move forward and consumed with negative thoughts. The fertility journey itself is a huge trauma, month on month that grief is compounded, meaning that we are constantly in a state of fight or flight. I have found that I am often prescribing grief remedies for my patients trying to conceive.
