Fertility and Naturopathic Medicine

I am a Naturopathic Doctor and I see many people with these issues. I'm glad you are posting for everyone to get more information on the topic. I'll tell my patients to read your blog!

Thank you so much for recommending our Blog. Naturopathic medicine has so much to offer to women who are trying to conceive, especially if they are experiencing specific fertility issues. It is my hope that more women will try natural therapies first before resorting to costly and painful fertility treatments, which often turn out to cause more issues.

Thank you!

Anti-Müllerian Hormone Test Results
by: Maria Gioia Atzori

An AMH level of 1.2 is on the low side. The Anti-Müllerian Hormone Test result is considered to be low when less than 2. It simply means that your ovaries will not respond well to stimulation and that your ovarian reserve is diminiscing. In order to be successful for fertility treatment women need to be able to produce a certain number of follicles. The higher the number the more sucessful the treatment.
If you are trying to conceiv enaturally, it is not as critical because you do not need to produce a high number of eggs each month, you only need one.

Weather you are trying to conceiv enaturally or evaluating fertility treatment, there are many things you can do naturally in order to increase healthy eggs.
To learn more, read the article on How To Get Pregnant With Low Ovarian Reserve.

All the Best!
