Infertility awareness will be BIG this month. From support groups to fertility-boosting diets, you’ll probably be bombarded with ads, messages, and posts about all things infertility, if you haven’t been already. This month, though, we’re going to focus on FERTILITY awareness. Oftentimes, our patients get to our office not knowing the factors that are affecting their overall fertility whether it be a reproductive health condition like PCOS, uterine fibroids, adenomyosis, or endometriosis, or... the dreaded numbers... FSH, LH, E2, AMH, prolactin, and thyroid... AND then there’s also sperm count, concentration, motility, and morphology. Sadly, the first time many of us know our numbers is when we’re having fertility challenges and for some couples, it is too late to address because, well, we can’t turn back the hands of time. With this in mind, we’re going to be proactive throughout this month and talk about ways to stay on top of your fertility all throughout out your lifecycle, so you will not be caught off guard whether you’re trying to conceive now, later, or never.   

Now that you’re prepared and in-the-know, our next nugget will focus on getting your body ready so you’re set for pregnancy one day.
