This National Infertility Awareness Week, we’d like to re-introduce you to your hormones. Whether you are years away from kids, thinking about them soon, currently trying to conceive, or planning for your next one, understanding your hormones is important for your reproductive health and overall wellbeing.
The holiday season is kicking into full swing, and it can be stressful, even in the best of circumstances. For those enduring fertility challenges, you may not be feeling the holiday cheer. Not getting pregnant is hard at any time of the year, but it can be worse during the holidays. It’s okay to feel sad about feeling sad. Having these feelings does not make you ungrateful for the blessings you do have. Those feelings are real, they are valid, and you are entitled to them.
Having the freedom to choose our form of birth control is both liberating and a very important part of our modern society. Unfortunately, the use of synthetic hormones can lead to the disruption of our natural hormone cycles. Thankfully there are many great ways to balance your body’s hormones to their natural state and prepare the body for conception.
When it comes to fertility challenges, both men and women are equally important to the fertile picture. Our clients are often surprised to find out that approximately one-third of infertility is attributed to the female partner, one-third attributed to the male partner, and one-third is caused by a combination of challenges in both partners or is unexplained.
June is LGBTQ Pride Month! Blue Ova joins the LGBTQ community in celebrating gay pride in San Francisco and throughout the country. We love supporting LGBTQ families on their family building journeys. We support with the fertility and conception process and throughout pregnancy and postpartum through acupuncture, massage and nutrition.
Ever wonder how energy affects fertility? How does this happen? Everything is energy including our thoughts and belief patterns, other people’s thoughts and belief patterns, and even all that makes up our bodies. Many times things happen that cause energy to get stuck, be stagnant or leave an energetic imprint and this can affect fertility.
