- Painful periods
- Hormonal imbalance
- Re-establishing a healthy menstrual cycle after discontinuing OCP (oral contraceptive pill)
- Menopause, and more
The latest studies are also showing that naturopathy is a safe and effective way to increase IVF success rates, and is safe to use concurrently during IVF treatment. It is best to start any pre-pregnancy health enhancement regime several months before trying to conceive either naturally or via IVF.
Naturopaths may use a variety of treatment methods to help improve fertility and women's health. These include:
- Herbal Medicine
- Lifestyle recommendations
- Stress reduction
