How To Know If IVF Is Your Next Best Step
Apr 25, 2022
We’re digging into how to know if IVF is your next best step to improve your chances of pregnancy success.
I know firsthand what it’s like to be told that IVF is your only option to have children. In my case, it was being diagnosed with POI/POF at 28 and told that I could only have children with donor eggs.
I know that IVF can feel like your next logical step.
You probably feel like you’ve already tried everything. I know that when I dreamed of having my family – it certainly wasn’t with IVF.
And although IVF can be successful – with an average 30% success rate – what about the couple that has 1,2,3,4 or more failed cycles? I see this quite regularly and it is heartbreaking and financially devastating.
So before you commit emotionally and financially to another IVF cycle I want you to know the exact steps you can take to improve your chances of pregnancy success.
This episode is for you if:
- You would rather prepare your body naturally for pregnancy but you have no idea how to fast track your chances of pregnancy success.
- You are ready to get pregnant and have your baby and you’re thinking IVF is your next best option but you want to know how to increase your chances of a successful transfer.
- You have low AMH/high FSH and you’ve already experienced failed IVF, cancelled cycles or been told you are a poor responder, but you’ve been told IVF is your only option to conceive.
In this episode you'll learn:
- How to improve pregnancy success when IVF seems to be your only option. You’ve already tried everything! I discuss what we see conventional medicine regularly misses so that you can address missed healing opportunities.
- How to stop wasting time! I know you may already feel like you are in a panic to get pregnant. Top time wasters that I see when you are on the fertility journey.
- How to really know if it is time to start IVF. How to get your partner on board with the changes and how to optimize your chances of a successful IVF.
