There are as many unique causes or triggers to infertility as there are women and according to most infertility clinics almost everyone has a story that differs from others. We have begun to notice the connection between body, mind and spirit in the ways we handle fertility. We are accepting slowly but surely that what we eat, what we think and what we do have a lot to do with how fertile we may be and stay.
We are also reminded of how unstable medical science is when trying to bolster how to stabilize the reproductive system. Take for instance fertility drugs, they are meant to create a normal pregnancy yet we have seen in the recent past that we are creating litters of children to the tune of 6 to 8 babies in some cases. The time is now to try and understand what we can do to assist fertility to produce as natural a result as possible and the first step to doing this is to understand the woman on a more individual level. This means infertility clinics may need to take a more holistic approach to the issue and causation rather than a blanket battery of treatments.
This sounds so much easier than what it is to accomplish though. You are talking about refurbishing the system on a nearly global level and changing the way the pharmaceutical companies think and deal with us and with women in general. So we must take the bull by the horns and do what we can in order to assist infertility clinics to determine what the best treatment is for them as an individual.
Use a journal and track, track, track!
So the first way we track an individual woman’s system is to look at her habits. In a journal we are only taught to track two things and that is, when we have sex and when we ovulate and then later come the treatment tracking. Unfortunately it is a hit or miss situation. Below is a list of other things you could track and it is possible you could have an ‘ah ha’ moment.- Eating habits, like what are you putting into your system? Are you a more organic eater or are you a more chemical soup eater? Believe it or not this makes a big difference in what result you are getting from your body.
According to studies by Cornell University, there is no real documented proof that hormones in treated animals actually transfer in acute amounts but trace amounts are.
All this really means is that people who are exposed still may be affected but they just don’t know how much so suffice to say eat healthier when you are dealing with hormones just to be safe.
– Smoking, drinking and emotional swings should also be tracked as stress and carcinogenic toxins have already been proven to affect health and reproduction although no one seems to be addressing it strongly enough. We have only seen the effects of smoking beaten into the ground only after a women becomes pregnantgo figure!
In conclusion, more research is needed to determine what causes fertility issues in women on an individual level with all environmental factors taken into consideration fertility clinic would also benefit greatly by this change of thinking.
