Natural fertility helps women increase their fertility without using drugs. In NZ one in ten couples have difficulty conceiving. To solve this problem couples often look to ART (usually IVF) which involves large amounts of money, has ethical and moral concerns and offers only a 20-30% chance of conception. In comparison, Natural Fertility surveys show 80% chance of overcoming fertility issues resulting in a healthy baby. (Foresight UK study 1995)
What is involved with Natural Fertility?
Preconception care for 3-4 months to ensure healthy eggs and sperm and foetal development. Sperm take up to 116 days to form and eggs are susceptible to damage up to 100 days before ovulation. This involves charting your mucous and temperature changes and using abstinence or barrier methods during your fertile periods. This is also helpful for post birth contraception if needed.
Treating any reproductive issues such as PMS, low sperm count or motility, lack of ovulation, history of miscarriages, endometriosis, polycystic ovarian syndrome.
