Have you been told that your fertility issues are classed as unexplained infertility? But, despite them being unexplained you can access Fertility Treatment?
What does unexplained infertility actually mean?
Does it mean there is nothing wrong? Well no it really means that based on the limited testing done and the low parameters of what is considered acceptable, there are no obvious indicators of poor or no ovulation, low sperm, and no structural issues in the reproductive organs.
I was really surprised and pleased when a client of mine attended Leeds Fertility and both her and her husbands Vitamin D was tested, and found to be low. The clinic wouldn’t start the IVF until their levels were within acceptable parameters. This isn’t common across the clinics that many of my clients are attending for investigations or IVF, which I find concerning, as if having IVF, the same factors affecting your not getting pregnant can be an issue.
Key nutritional deficiencies have a huge impact on fertility and are really tested within the fertility medical model.
Also if you have been given a diagnosis Endometriosis or PCOS, it is assumed that everything else is OK and it may not be.
What if there is another issue, being put in the ‘box’ can mean we overlook other issues.
I share my passion for the unexplained and talk through my MS diagnosis and why I am so passionate about information and the avoidance of overwhelm. That a much wider approach needs to be taken, and through relatively inexpensive testing when you compare it to IVF.
But even that testing may not be necessary. That applying an informed sensible approach to look at the much wider aspects that affect fertility is key. And this is how I work in the fertility rewire programme.
If you want to discuss this with me in a free call, I’d be really excited to hear from you.
There is an explanation, we just have to know where to look.
