The mistake most infertile couple make is waiting too long in getting pregant. Yes, infertility is a couple’s business and not just the woman. About 40% of the cause of infertility is blamed on the women. Another 40% is blamed on male infertility factors. Five percent is shared by the two couples and the remaining 5% is said to be due to unknown infertility factors.
Now, to get pregnant is a natural process and anytime a couple is labeled ‘infertile’, there is a problem. This is because Western medicine and their fertility doctors have little solution for infertility sufferers. Western fertility doctors are limited to harmful drugs, invasive procedures and aggressive surgery. All these methods are exercise in futility rather than fertility. Orthodox medicine has it’s limitations and boundaries that does not address the root cause of infertility in the first place.
For instance, fertility drugs like clomiphene citrate (clomid) is associated with ovarian cysts and cancer. Yes, clomid can also cause multiple pregnancy and deformed babies if they work at all. Now while trying to cure the problem of anovulation (not making eggs), clomiphene create multiple premature ovulation and exhausted ovary. The infertile woman need healthy ovary to make eggs, achieve healthy pregnancy and healthy baby.
Another cause of infertility and perhaps the most important is hormonal imbalance. The reproductive hormones are FSH, LH, Estrogen, progesterone and testesterone. Hormonal imbalance is the underlying cause of all other secondary causes of infertility like fibroids, ovarian cysts, endomytriosis, endometrial hyperplasia, irregular periods, heavy periods or lack of mensis. This is because there is a maxim in natural medicine that says, “for any symptoms (infertility in this case) or symptom complex, there is always an imbalance behind it.”
Of all these hormones mentioned above, estrogen dominance relative to progesterone stands out as the greatest cause of infertility. This is because of all sources of estrogen in the environment and it gets worse by the day. These include zenoestrogens, plant estrogens and mycoestrogens. On the other hand, far too many infertile women have low progesterone.
