I thought it would be really interesting to talk about stress from the perspective of fertility. The topic is weighty for women on the fertility journey. Before we delve into the topic, I would like for us to recognize chronic stress triggers are very personalized to each woman. There’s no standard for stress, instead an expansive spectrum exists. Any statements I make are generalized.

I would like to take a moment to acknowledge the perfect woman. You might find her reacting to the video. She might tell you:

“I should eliminate all the stress in my life.”
“My fertility is destroyed by stress.”
“If […]

Feeling Broken on the Fertility Journey

Many women who have come into my practice feel they are broken.  As a practitioner and a woman, I understand how fertility clients can feel broken.  We are told as young girls; we will grow up and have babies…be mommies.  It’s just going to be “this way” when we are ready to have our baby.

What’s resveratrol? Resveratrol is found in peanuts, berries, the skin of red grapes, red wine, and in the Japanese Knotweed plant also known as polygonum. Research has proven it has strong antioxidant/estrogen protection which can enhance egg quality.

Resveratrol increases the protein SIRT1, which slows a cell’s aging process and improves the DNA quality within the […]

Antimullerian hormone (AMH) is not an indicator of failure.

Low AMH Low AMH does not predict live births.

Last month, Fertility and Sterility published a study involving live births from IVF and the measurement of AMH.

What’s great about this study? It’s has a large study population (69,336 women undergoing fresh and frozen embryo transfers). The study clearly found AMH has no impact on lowering live births.

My experience has been that fertility clinics feel AMH can only lead to poor results in IUI/IVF. My observation with women who have been diagnosed with low AMH, they can get pregnant.

The most important concept to remember […]
