The important reason people see homoeopathic treatment is to aid them in becoming pregnant and sustaining a healthy pregnancy and birth. Women have been known to conceive following the administration of a good constitutional homoeopathic remedy even when they are not trying. But for those couples having difficulty conceiving, homoeopathy can be a huge help.
Couples who have difficulties conceiving often find themselves in physical and emotional turmoil. Deciding whether or not to take the plunge and have IVF treatment often brings up all sorts of issues that only the partners themselves can really understand. Sometimes women will undergo several cycles of expensive fertility treatment and still not become pregnant or carry a baby to term. There are health issues surrounding this which a fertility clinic may or may not address directly and fully.
Some common causes of fertility difficulties include health problems such as fibroids, endometriosis, blocked fallopian tubes, polycystic ovary syndrome, difficulties with ovulation, poor egg or sperm quality, low testosterone, problems with sperm production or motility. Other blocks to a successful conception are the absence of menstruation following long-term use of birth control pills, repeated or incomplete miscarriage, drug and alcohol use, environmental toxicity and emotional issues such as grief, anger, and untreated trauma.
Homoeopathy and Fertility:
Homoeopathy offers an effective, safe, and painless alternative to more invasive fertility treatments. Homoeopathy looks at the whole person and considers the cause of conception difficulties and treats that cause– often removing the blocks to conception and leading the way to a healthy, natural pregnancy.
A visit to a homoeopath:
A visit to a homoeopath can be therapeutic for both partners. A first appointment generally lasts around 1 ½ hours. The homoeopath will be interested in hearing all the history that has led them to seek treatment. The appointment is based around talking and no examinations are taken. By taking a thorough case, the homoeopath is sort of like a detective, searching for possible causes to infertility. Once he/she determines either the cause or the barrier in the way of a healthy pregnancy, she looks for a remedy which will allow conception to happen.
Here are some guidelines of when to contact a homoeopath for fertility help:
- When you’ve been trying to conceive for more than 3 months without success.
- If you have been taken a pill to clear the body, regulate the hormones and stimulate the menstrual system.
- If you have miscarried, lost a baby, or suffered any sort of grief which might be interfering with conception.
- If you or your partner have suffered from emotional problems or have issues you feel might be stopping you from conceiving.
- If you have blocked tubes, endometriosis, or other hormonal or gynaecological problems.
