Ovarian Reserve and Fertility

Is it taking too long for you to get pregnant but you don’t understand why?  Ovarian reserve is one assessment that can be done when other causes of infertility have been ruled out.
By testing FSH and AMH levels, this can give a good idea of what a woman is working with in terms of her supply of oocytes. The numbers steadily decline as women age.
Whether or not the numbers are average or low, our Mississauga Naturopathic Doctors can provide a plan to optimize the quality of the eggs therefore improving chances of conception and health baby to term.
Reduced egg quality can be due to smoking, endometriosis, pelvic radiation, chemotherapy and exposure to chemicals.
By supporting mitochondrial function and flooding the body in antioxidants and sometimes even doing a liver cleanse can help to optimize the ovarian reserve.
Call today if you would like these tests done!
