What is infertility?
Infertility is the term used when a couple has been actively trying to conceive without results for 6 months or more. Katherine does not see couples as infertile, rather than their health is not optimum enough for conception to take place.
What are the causes of infertility?
Infertility, or sub-optimum fertility, can be due to many factors. Conditions such as Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome(PCOS), Endometriosis, fibroids, and adenomyosis are major causes of infertility.
Hormonal imbalances, which lead to irregular cycles, painful periods, heavy periods, and problems with ovulation can also reduce fertility.
Nutrient deficiencies play a large role in conception, from the development of the ova and sperm right through to maintaining a pregnancy. A deficiency in one of the nutrients involved in the reproductive cycle can lead to the inability to conceive.
How does natural fertility management work?
Natural fertility management works by regulating hormonal imbalances, correcting nutritional deficiencies, and improving general health and wellbeing so that your body is in a better state to allow conception to occur.
If there is an underlying cause of infertility, such as PCOS, endometriosis, or thyroid disease, this will be treated as part of your natural fertility management program.
Each couple is assessed individually, with management plans tailored to each individuals needs for the best results.
Studies have shown that this method of fertility management works for up to 81% of clients trying to conceive. When used in combination with IVF it has been shown to double the chances of a successful IVF cycle.
The 81% of women studied using natural fertility methods conceived with no miscarriages, perinatal deaths, birth defects, or admissions into intensive care.
The principles used by Katherine are in line with the ones used in this study, involving herbal medicines, nutritional supplements, lifestyle coaching, and dietary advice.
