It is estimated that 30 to 50% of people with Endometriosis will experience fertility problems. To discuss this in more detail I am joined this week by Louise Collyer, a highly experienced TCM acupuncturist, Chinese Medicine herbalist and Functional Medicine practitioner, who specialises in women’s health, fertility and endometriosis.
Farzanah Nasser, is a thyroid health expert, nutritionist and functional medicine practitioner. Thyroid health is important for so many functions in the body, including fertility, menstrual cycles and pregnancy.
It is now widely acknowledged that there is not enough testing, investigation or treatment is done into male factor fertility issues. We see many people in clinic who have had every test under the sun, and yet their partner has been offered one sperm test. We look at why and how we got into this situation and where and how you can get further testing for male factor fertility.
We think that testing and investigating your fertility should be encouraged more and done sooner. So in this week’s episode we look at what the current situation is around testing, what’s available from the NHS, what the guidelines say and what tests we would recommend as first step investigations into your fertility.
