Fertility will speak the truth

A woman’s fertility is regulated by a multi-leveled system of neuroendocrine mechanisms
(hypothalamic-hypophysis-gonadal axis).

 

The end result of effective cooperation of these mechanisms is a proper menstrual cycle allowing for a woman to conceive and for healthy development of an embryo. The standardized Creighton Model System allows us to easily assess the quality of this monthly cycle. Infertility is a state when planned conception is not achieved. Infertility requires specialist diagnostics and gynecological treatment (conservative or surgical). If a gynecological reason cannot be found then it may mean that the decreased fertility (hypofertility) may be a result of various factors located beyond the reproductive system. Fertility, therefore, is a uniquely sensitive meter of the general health of a woman, being affected by many different systemic as well as environmental factors and stimuli (so called epigenetic modulation).

Factors affecting the monthly cycle may be of different natures; emotional (stress), nutritional, metabolic, genetic, infectious, allergic, or autoimmunological (celiac disease, Hashimoto disease). A change in lifestyle, correction of nutrition, removing sources of infection or attaining metabolic homeostasis may significantly improve markers of fertility and increase the chances of conceiving a child. That is the nature of fertility, your first messenger when something in Your body isn’t working properly.
