Fertility

Whether you are just starting to think about conceiving or have been trying for

years, you are welcome! In the first visit, you will meet with a licensed Naturopathic

Doctor with an interest in women’s health & fertility for 90 minutes. Your questions,

lab work, family history and personal health history will guide the visit and the

treatment plan. We pride ourselves on being evidence based and patient focused. A

second 60 minute visit is booked in 4-6 weeks. Ongoing 30 minute appointments are

scheduled as needed to support you as little or as much as you need.

Some common questions that are discussed include:

     - When should we be having sex, and tools to track your cycle

     - Am I ovulating, and using LH kits

     - How often should we be trying

     - Should you have sex outside of your fertility window

     - What factors increase our chance of conception

     - What should I be avoiding in my day to day routine

     - Can acupuncture help alongside my IVF

     - Balancing mood, stress, low libido and insomnia naturally

        after pregnancy

Naturopathic Doctors can run lab work (at a cost to you) or you can sign a release of

records that we send to your medical doctor to see the labs you’ve had done

(covered by OHIP). We direct bill most insurance plans to try and make the process

as streamline and stress free as possible. We also have a fabulous Chiropractor and

Psycotherapist in our clinic to support you before, during and after if desired.

Some labs we commonly run and/or discuss include but are not limited to: CBC,

Ferritin, B12, Vitamin D, Thyroid Panel, Cholesterol Panel, HbA1C, insulin glucose

challenge, FSH, LH, progesterone, estrogen, testosterone, cortisol.

We are not licensed to do sperm analysis and do not perform ultrasounds.

We would love the opportunity to work with you. Call the clinic or search this
