Whether you are thinking of starting a family or if you and your partner have been having trouble getting pregnant, I offer naturopathic fertility treatments that can help. My focus is on identifying the root causes of infertility and utilizing naturopathic treatments to improve fertility. I also strive to prevent infertility for individuals and couples who are interested in taking a proactive approach to their reproductive health.
The most common reasons couples are not getting pregnant are men not knowing if their sperm is healthy and women not knowing how to track their menstrual cycle and knowing when they are ovulating to properly time intercourse.
Women often experience menstrual issues and are led to believe that they are simply “normal” variations of a woman’s menstrual cycle. What they are not told is that these issues may be impacting their fertility. These issues include painful menses, heavy periods, very light periods, irregular periods, ovulating early, ovulating late, a short luteal phase, spotting, and uniphasic basal body temperatures. Unfortunately, many menstrual issues are left untreated meanwhile patients carry on undergoing fertility treatments such as IUI or IVF and are then disappointed when it is not successful.
I have seen many female patients who have been told by their healthcare provider that all their tests are normal and therefore have been given the diagnosis of unexplained infertility. More often than not, there is indeed an explanation for infertility that is revealed from a naturopathic approach to cycle monitoring and fertility evaluation.
Men can be at a disadvantage when it comes to their fertility. You can not see or feel if you have low sperm count or low sperm motility, thus most men do not know how healthy their sperm is unless they have a known medical condition that affects sperm. Luckily, a simple semen analysis test can provide this information.
I am passionate about educating my patients about their reproductive health and providing natural solutions for their fertility issues. I look forward to working with you so that some day you can hear the pitter patter of little feet.
Yours in health,
Dr. Holly Letourneau ND
