Infertility Revealed

by Dr. Karen Clickner


Infertility is an epidemic. Women are lining up for the only solution they know: IUI and IVF fertility treatment. But, sadly, statistics prove that only 10-20 of these women out of 100 will have successful pregnancies. Why is this rate so low? Because conventional fertility treatment is only sought out when pregnancy fails, instead of helping women early in their reproductive life to have healthy bodies and healthy periods. I have had women tell me about years of severe cramps that made them almost pass out, or massive bleeding to the point of anemia, even periods lasting all month. And the only solution offered were oral contraceptives, as though these were just unfortunate aspects of a normal period. Never is attention directed to the reasons why these women have such debilitating cycles. So is it any wonder that they are infertile?

Natural fertility isn’t just a journey, it is a mission to identify and resolve a lifetime of imbalances that have conspired to rob a woman of the ability to have a child. And the success rate of natural fertility? Nine out of every ten women go on to deliver healthy babies. This is an amazing statistical difference, which is due to the fact that we think outside of the hormonal box. In order for a woman to overcome infertility, you have to take the time to really look at all the factors in her life that can influence overall health and the effect this has on reproductive hormones, because pregnancy is a team effort of all your body systems, a fact that is overlooked by conventional fertility treatment. Some of the common disruptions to fertility are anxiety, mold exposure, a tipped uterus, navel displacement, low blood quality or oxygenation, heavy metal toxicity, chronic allergies, electromagnetic exposure, ignored low thyroid levels, even over-exercise.  

Were any of these things identified or even addressed by their fertility doctor?  No.  That is why they remained infertile. Pregnancy is a challenge to the body and if resources are low, energy is weak and the immune system is overwhelmed, then pregnancy becomes an added and unnecessary strain. Focusing only on reproductive hormones is ignoring the 80 to 90 women that are the unsuccessful statistics.

The best way to have a child is to ensure optimal fertility of both partners for at least 3-6 months before conception.  If you have experienced fertility challenges, then you need to expand your view to find the answer. Consider your work schedule, your stress level, your diet, your health history, the position of your bed and even your time in front of a screen. Think about nagging symptoms that never go away. Fertility and pregnancy don’t just happen.  They are created.  What are you honestly putting into that creative effort?
