Fertility Optimization

Did you know? It takes 3 months to develop healthy sperm and eggs. This means that the best time for fertility optimization takes place in “trimester 0” – at least 3 months before you plan to conceive.

Wanting to start trying right away? That’s okay too!

Dr. Laura can walk you through the optimal dietary changes for you, make sure you are tracking your cycle appropriately & monitoring ovulation, and send you for the appropriate preconception bloodwork to treat any underlying imbalances and get you and your partner started on your journey to conception. It takes two to tango, that’s why Dr. Laura offers fertility appointments for couples looking to conceive so that both partners can be involved in the treatment plan from the start.

Infertility is defined as “the inability to conceive after 12 months of unprotected intercourse”. In women 35 years and older, this definition changes to 6 months. For most women, this is a LONG time to wait BEFORE seeking treatment. Dr. Laura works with patients at all stages of their fertility journey to help support them in various ways. Starting IVF or IUI? Dr. Laura can offer supports for these patients in the form of proper supplementation, acupuncture and dietary recommendations to optimize fertility clinic treatments.
