Hurrah! We have a new team member who is coming on board to help support our patients and work with us in our fertility community group. Morven provides online fertility consultations and support.
Despite what we were told when we were younger, you don’t always get pregnant from unprotected sex!
In fact, it is estimated that women are only fertile for approximately 4 to 5 days each cycle. And even if there are no underlying issues and you have sex at the right time there is only a 25 to 35 % chance of conception happening.
So if you are trying to conceive, it’s important to understand your fertility, know what problems to look out for and be confident in when your fertile window is, to maximise your chances each month.
I am joined by fertility nutritionist Kirsty Harrison to talk about digestion and its links to reproductive health.
Kirsty is our lovely nutritionist and a member of the Fertility Nutrition Centre. So she has a lot of great information and experience to share about gut health and supporting this to help improve fertility outcomes.
Dr Larisa Corda is a fertility expert, an obstetrician and gynaecologist, a spiritualist and TV Doctor and author. You may recognise her from This Morning, where she frequently appears as the in-house fertility expert. She has recently published a new book The Conception Plan, which brings together conventional medicine and complimentary practices to treat and support a person as a whole. Which, as an acupuncturist is music to my ears!
