Help for Possible Infertility but Limited Insurance

by Amy

I have what they call soonerplan or family planning but it does not cover infertility. I have had 2 miscarriages & 1 live birth. My last ob/gyn thinks I might have a problem with my thyroid but I am not sure what to do since my insurance wont cover infertility.

Maria's Answer:
Hi Amy,

Your insurance plan should cover regular checkups and blood testing to ensure your thyroid gland is working properly. If your thyroid is out of balance, you need to address this issue and your fertility will increase as a result.

Thyroid imbalance and infertility issues is quite common. There is a lot natural health can do to increase the health of your thyroid gland. Ask your doctor to do some blood work that checks for thyroid function.

Al home, the simple way to test thyroid function is to take your underarm temperature in the morning before getting out of bed. A normal temperature is 97.8 to 98.2 F or 36.6 to 36.8 C.
if your temperature is consistently lower than these values, you may have an underactive thyroid. If they are higher than 98.2 F, your thyroid could be overactive.
Learn fertility charting to keep track of your temperature and ovulation.

Fertility Blessings!

Possible Thyroid Disorder Affecting Fertility
by: Maria

Low progesterone is often associated with thyroid disorder affecting fertility. Vitex agnus castus can help balance low progesterone due to estrogen dominance.

Take a fertility multivitamin that contains zinc, selenium, chromium, manganese, magnesium, and B-complex.
Also Kelp and L-Tyrosine can help soothe the thyroid.
The homeopathic remedy thyroidinum 4Ch is used to activate the underactive thyroid gland.
Exercise 40 to 60 minutes a day.
