10 Things I Wish More Women Knew on Their Fertility Journey
I personally believe that our technology today is amazing and these treatments are an INCREDIBLE tool in our tool-kit. My message here is that they are not the only tool, and long term exposure does not come without risk for consequences. The hormones provided in treatment increase your body’s inflammatory pathways, stress response, and risk for autoimmunity. We have to remember that these hormones are foreign to your body and the body has to process them out via detoxification pathways. The incidences of hormone positive cancers is higher in those who have undergone hormone therapies via fertility treatments. If you have explored repeated fertility treatments without success, this would be a great time to connect with a practitioner and focus exclusively on diet and lifestyle support in your fertility journey prior to exploring further next steps. Whether you choose to use a fertility treatment in the future, this will optimize your efforts for success by first optimizing your body’s environment!
