Struggling to conceive naturally is normal. Fortunately there are ways to improve your chances of natural conception. The first thing you can do is reevaluate your lifestyle and focus on healthy living.

Primary Care is Essential

  1. Lifestyle Management for Natural Conception
  2. Assisting the Body for Natural Conception


Lifestyle Management for Natural Conception

Lifestyle management for natural conception starts with addressing factors that could be in the way of you falling pregnant. We will take a look at the following factors and help resolve them if necessary and possible:

  • Intercourse Timing Therapy: Once you know when you are ovulating, you can time intercourse accordingly to significantly increase chances of conception.
  • Weight Management: Additional weight may hinder natural conception. We can help you manage your weight which should improve hormone levels and promote normal ovulation.
  • Lifestyle Assistance: An unhealthy and unnutritious diet, alcohol, cigarettes and recreational drugs can all get in the way of you falling pregnant.
  • Stress Management: People stress about different things. Triggers should be identified and managed to improve chances of pregnancy. Counselling may help.
  • Depression: Anxiety and depression are common disorders that need attention, especially when it comes to pregnancy. Allow us to tell you about treatment options and trust us to help you.
  • Medication: Some prescription medications may interfere with conception. We can help address this problem and suggest possible solutions.
  • HIV: We can tell you more about HIV and pregnancy, getting pregnant and mother to child transmission.
  • STDs: STDs should be ruled out and/or treated to improve chances of conception.


Assisting the Body for Natural Conception

There are additional ways to assist the body for natural conception when lifestyle changes and health improvements are not enough. Some tests, medications and/or procedures may be necessary.

       •  Hormone Therapy: Hormone imbalance can be treated with fertility drugs.

       •  Medication and Drug Administration: Investigation and diagnosis can help determine if medications are needed to manage or resolve a new or existing condition.

       •  Menstrual Irregularities and/or Ovulation Problems:  Conditions that interfere need to be diagnosed, addressed and treated if possible.

       •  Miscarriage: An existing condition could lead to miscarriage. Tests will help inform the course of treatment to adopt.

       •  Fibroids: Uterine fibroids are benign (noncancerous) growths but they can impact fertility if they grow inside the uterus. An investigation can rule out or confirm fibroids which need to be addressed if present.

       •  Ovarian Cysts: These are common and often noncancerous in patients under 35. They can, however, interfere with fertility so they should be treated.

       •  Blocked Fallopian Tubes: Sometimes the egg and sperm can’t reach each other, or the fertilized egg cannot reach the uterus. Surgery may resolve this problem, or IVF can be used to bypass the tubes.

       •  Post Abortion Damage: In rare cases, post-procedure scarring needs to be repaired.
