The results that you can expect from homeopathic fertility treatment are rapid. It is common for a woman’s cycle to change within weeks of commencing homeopathic treatment. If the period had previously been too light and a brown murky colour, the period will often transition to a healthier bright red decent flow. For women who had a sporadic irregular cycle, this will typically regulate into a 28-ish day cycle. Women who previously had no cervical mucous will often notice a great increase as they approach ovulation along with a boost in sex drive. This shows that estrogen levels are peaking correctly and eggs are almost certainly being released. We recommend a day 21 progesterone blood test or ovulation strips to confirm if the couple aren’t sure. Some women notice that PMS disappears, premenstrual bloating diminishes or is resolved completely, cramps lessen or disappear. These are all signs that the body is now regulating hormones correctly. Getting a sperm analysis 3 months after treatment is the best way to show progress from the homeopathic treatment for males.
There are several factors contributing to the high rates of infertility amongst men and women today. What we are currently finding in practice is that after years and potentially decades on the Oral Contraceptive Pill [OCP], ovulation and the associated cascade of hormones that you would expect are not returning in balance, making it very difficult for our couples to conceive. This can show up as poor quality cervical mucus, a luteal phase defect, or simply low progesterone and hormone imbalance. PCOS, endometriosis, high sugar inflammatory diets and later age of trying to conceive are all factors contributing to the increased difficulty in falling pregnant.
Lack of ovulation, late ovulation, or a lack of cervical mucous.
In order to conceive naturally we need to be sure eggs are being released approximately around day 14, with a good amount of cervical mucous for the sperm to swim all the way to the egg. Without cervical mucous, the environment in the vagina is dry and hostile for sperm, making it impossible for them to survive the swim. Late ovulation, also known as a luteal phase defect, can also make it difficult to fall pregnant, as the egg does not have time to become fertilized and attach to the uterine wall before it begins to shed when the period arrives. Homeopathic remedies are used to enhance the estrogen spike at ovulation, ensuring not only that eggs are released, but that there is ample cervical mucous, significantly boosting their chances of natural conception.
Regulating the menstrual cycle.
We look at the length of the menstrual cycle, the length of the period, and the colour of the blood to determine hormonal imbalances which may be impacting fertility. While some hormonal imbalances are genetic, it is extremely common for women to experience hormonal imbalances after years using contraceptives, with their cycles not returning to a normal healthy state. This is simply because after years of shutting down the reproductive system and the natural cascade of hormones which cycle through the month, the body can need assistance getting back to its previous state. The menstrual cycle is like a woman’s hormonal report card, and when the balance of estrogen and progesterone are brought back into harmony, women notice their cycle normalises. Homeopathics are used to achieve this delicate balance of hormones, returning the cycle to a healthy state typically within 4 weeks of commencing treatment. It is common for women to report that their period was closer to a typical 28-day cycle, a healthier colour bright red blood, and often pain free with a lack of bloating and mood swings that would usually accompany their period. These are all signs that your hormones are balancing out.
Did you know that men account for approximately 40% of all infertility cases? This is something not widely acknowledged, with women often being the first to assume responsibility for difficulties achieving a pregnancy.
A study published in 2017 by researchers from the Hebrew University and Mount Sinai’s medical school found that among nearly 43,000 men from North America, Europe, New Zealand, and Australia, sperm counts per millilitre of semen had declined more than 50 percent from 1973 to 2011. Not only that, “but total sperm counts were down by almost 60 percent. We are producing less semen, and that semen has fewer sperm cells in it” wrote Daniel Noah Halpern. This is having a massive impact!
Homeopathy has a known history of improving sperm quality when tested over a 4-month duration. The wonderful thing about new sperm being generated every 3 months is that you can have such a positive impact through homeopathy, supplementation, and making healthy lifestyle choices.
