Frequently Asked Questions
How long does it take to get an appointment?
In most cases you can get an appointment within 1-2 weeks.
How many appointments do most people need?
This depends on several factors - while some people require as little as two visits, the average total number of visits is 4-6.
How often are appointments?
Appointments are generally every 2 months, unless you are in the middle of an ART cycle and/or have experienced a major change in your fertility timeline.
Do you treat male factor infertility?
Yes! Male factor infertility makes up 50% of fertility issues. Sperm responds to many of the same treatments and therapies as eggs do - changes in diet, specific nutrient therapies, and lifestyle changes can have profound effects on sperm count, motility, and morphology.
My labs are all normal. Can you still help?
Many people who are TTC for an extended period of time have normal labs. While this is ultimately a positive thing, it can also feel frustrating. While hormones are an important factor for fertility, there are SO many more elements at play. Hidden factors such as DNA fragmentation, implantation issues, and immune system activity are among the many things that can influence fertility outside of normal lab work. Sometimes you just need to take a deeper look at what's going on!
I have irregular periods / PCOS and can't really track my ovulation. Can you help?
Absolutely! PCOS can make trying to conceive incredibly confusing. For individuals with irregular cycles, hormone regulation and ovulation support are a first step. Sometimes this alone is enough for couples trying at home. For individuals undergoing IVF, there are many specific holistic therapies for people with PCOS that can dramatically increase IVF success rates.
Can I still drink coffee (and watch Netflix, and eat my favorite snacks) while trying to conceive?
YES! While I'll often recommend changes in your diet and lifestyle, I will always work with you where you're at. And, because stress is also a huge factor in your fertility, I am in support of (almost) anything that supports your stress reduction and mental health. Including coffee!
