By being a Lady-Comp user, you have demonstrated that you are committed to natural family planning without the use of hormonal birth control. Therefore, if you are having trouble conceiving, it only makes sense that you would prefer to seek out natural treatments, rather than subject your body to fertility drugs.
Luckily, more and more physicians are embracing this way of thinking and pursuing natural approaches, the most common of which is known as the Creighton Model Fertility Care System. With this system, you will chart your cycle, as well as a number of other physical changes to your body throughout, in an effort to naturally determine the cause of your infertility. Physicians will use these results, along with an evaluation of your body’s hormones, to look for specific markers that can be telltale signs of infertility causes. These can include premenstrual spotting, three or more days of brown menstrual bleeding, quality and quantity of cervical mucus flow, and abnormal lengths of time between ovulation. Once the irregularities have been identified, natural methods of correcting them can be discussed.
While you are pursuing this avenue, there are a number of complementary alternative medicine techniques that can help you reach your goal of conceiving as well.
- Experts believe that hypnosis can enhance your fertility by promoting relaxation in your body, as stress is a proven cause of fertility issues. For similar reasons, meditation, yoga, guided visualizations, and talk therapy are also encouraged.
- In traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture needles inserted in key points in your body can increase blood flow throughout and create balance. Therefore, acupuncture can help improve the blood supply to your reproductive organs, stimulate your hormones, and decrease stress, all of which help regulate your ovulation and enhance the chances of you becoming pregnant.
- Because the nerves of the reproductive system run through your spine, it is believed that chiropractic adjustments can help improve your hormone balance.
With any new medical technique you wish to try, it is imperative you speak to your doctor first to make sure it is the right course of action for you.
