Infertility is defined as the inability to become pregnant in 12 months with unprotected intercourse. For a woman over 35 years old, it’s the inability after 6 months, and 3 months of trying after 40 years old. Healthy couples without complications have a 20-25% of becoming pregnant with each month of trying around ovulation but what if you’re unhealthy?
Healthy couples without complications have an 85% chance of becoming pregnant in 12 months (if actively trying at ovulation). Infertility is considered due to be 30% male issues, 30% female issues, 30% a combination of both partners and 10% unexplained. This is why both male and female evaluation is critical. Conventional options are often limited, contain a narrow scope of treatment and can be expensive. This puts functional practitioners at a distinct advantage in working with those who are struggling to become pregnant or looking to do a pre-fertility work-up due to our belief in the therapeutic order and understanding of individualized whole-person medicine. This lecture will help those practitioners wanting to do more with fertility in their practice by understanding the basics of infertility, appropriate hormone work-up, semen analysis and possible treatment options while reviewing conventional standards such as IUI and IVF.
What You Will Learn
- Review definition of infertility and how it relates to both females and males.
- Explain conventional treatment such as clomid, IUI, and IVF and other fertility medications so that practitioners understand what options are promoted to infertility patients plus how functional medicine can work with them.
- Discuss lab values for males and females such as FSH, LH, AMH, testosterone, estradiol, progesterone, prolactin, leptin…etc including when to test, how to test, and what a high or low value means for their patient.
- Discuss natural treatments with herbs, supplements along with how to prescribe desiccated thyroid and bio identical progesterone.
