A holistic approach is optimal for fertility success

When you’ve reached the life stage where you’re hoping to get pregnant, it’s completely natural to wonder about your fertility and what steps you can take to improve it. Sometimes there are factors that fall outside of your control, including medical issues that may affect your ability to conceive. Likewise, there are lifestyle decisions that also have an impact on your likelihood to get pregnant.

Testing and Tracking

Fertility testing and tracking can be used to accurately diagnose possible infertility and detect ovulation. Fertility testing can include lab work to trace underlying conditions, sperm health, an HSG to ensure fallopian tubes are patent, or genetic testing just to name a few. Tracking ovulation, OPK's, apps and a variety of other fertility tools on the market can also help women who are hoping to become pregnant by pinpointing days of ovulation.
